2000 Pontiac Grand Am, no power at circuit breaker for power windows

That circuit breaker only has power with the ignition switch in the "ON" position. It does not have power in the ACC, START or OFF positions. The ORANGE wire leading from the ignition switch Pin "C" delivers the power to the Right Instrument Panel Junction Block where the window circuit breaker is located.

I wanted to know how do u change the ignition switch on a 96 Ford explorer. I turn my key and it is real loose and doesn't do.anything

This is for a v-8 96 ford explorer:

Let me know if you need the v-6 instructions which may be the same. I did not check yet. prev.gif next.gif Ignition Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. As necessary, remove all under dash panels in order to gain access to the ignition switch.
  4. As necessary, lower the steering column to gain working clearance.
  5. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical connectors.
  6. Remove the ignition switch retaining screws from the studs. Disengage the ignition switch from switch rod. Remove the switch from the vehicle. To install:
  7. Position the lock cylinder in the LOCK position.
  8. To set the switch, position a wire in the opening in the outer surface of the switch through its positions until the wire drops down into the slot. NOTE: The slot is in the bottom of the switch where the rod must be inserted to allow full movement through the switch positions.
  9. Position the ignition switch on the column studs and over the actuating rod. Torque the retaining nuts to 40–64 inch lbs. (4.5–7.2 Nm).
  10. Remove the wire from the slot in the housing. Continue the installation in the reverse order of the removal procedure.

96 grand prix se engine problems

Your problem may be a faulty (shorted) ignition coil housing assembly (the white plastic cover housing the coils its bolted to the aluminum cover) change that along with the spark plug boots ( the boots are optional but I recommend it) that should get your Grand Prix running smooth. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

Another possible issue, which happens to the malibu's as well is the grounding block, I"m unsure of its exact location on your car but I can take a picture of what it looks like, there is one that controls all your gauges directly. It bolts to a stud on the bellhousing bolts and has a tan/white body with around 10 prongs coming out of it, this would surely cause the issue.
