Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

2 Answers

MY 1993 Grand am V6 has dead Speedometer. Bought the car and It ran Fine First week. The car did need some TLC but nothing Huge. So I changed a few Belts and Threw in a New battery and terminal cables. One day the speedometer Just didnt function. Ive owned the car 2 weeks. I bought a Speed sensor and Speedometer cable. I poped the Speed Sensor and PLuged the same cable Back in and It didnt fix my problem. The cable I bought at Autozone Does not fit or Look like my old cable. SO I heard from a friend its Just a wrong cable and I should look for a electric cable or My speedometer Broke and I should check for a faint Soundin the dash. Also Maybe I need something called a Kick down cable. Any help would be Appreciated. Im currently Going Thru Automotive School so this is also a Learning experience for me.

You definitely don't need a kickdown cable, the kickdown is for the auto transmission, you may just need a new gauge cluster. also the cable you got from autozone could be a universal cable thats why it doesn't look the same, or it could just be a wrong cable, try napa.

If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

I would try your pickup coil in your distributor. I would also be checking the o2 sensors. both of these things can cause problems like this and would not set off the check engine light.

Hi,
It might be an ignition lead faulty? They are known to have spark leaking at the suppressor. Give them a good check and let us know how you are doing.

Make sure you don't have a faulty fuel injector, this may be the cause, also use a can of carb spray and spray around the intake gasket to check for leaks, if one is present you will notice a diff in the engine sound when the spray hits it.
