Is the security light on? If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Any codes? Could be bad crank sensor or cam sensor.

Probably need the computer reset. All these cars now days are set up for the dealer to screw you. The fix yourself is about history

SOURCE: 1996 pontiac grand am steering wheel is locked

Probably not. That's just the interlock between the ignition switch and the steering. **** the steering wheel very hard to one side or the other as you turn the key. It's more common than you might think and all car are guilty of it.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

2000 JGC have to wingle key to crank motor.


Ed,the switch actuator on the lower part of the stearing column may be going bad. It attaches to a rod that runs from the key switch.To replace it you have to remove the lower dash panel and drop the stearing column down. It will be on top of the column. Take the wires loose from it and remove the unit.It sounds a little complicated, but it's really not. Good luck!

HAVING PROBLEMS WITH 2001 PONTIAC GRAND AM STARTING. WHEN KEY TURNS, YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP PRIME AND IT WILL START; OTHER TIMES, WHEN KEY TURNS, YOU CANNOT HEAR THE FUEL PUMP PRIME AND IT WILL NOT...


  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.

check coils for spark if you have spark comming form all the wires and coils etc and then check for fuel and if you have these all working and still no start it could be a sensor either a cam or crank shaft sensor depending on the motor config

My 04 pontiac grand am started a fast clicking


Smoke coming from the steering column is definitely not a factory option. Likely you are developing a short inside that needs to be checked. Try to find what's making the noise as that may give you a good clue to which wires are involved in the problem. Smoking will cause the insulation on the bad wire to become soft and it will look different than the others. Obviously I'm not there,so I can't tell you which are involved, you need to take a good look or get it to a shop ASAP!!!

this is caused because a misfire, misfire will be caused by defective or misrouted spark plug wires, make sure to check the firing order, on the plug wires, and if you just replace the spark plugs, then most likelly the wires are misrouted, and the cat gets hot because unburnt fuel like runing too rich, and will be related with misfire.
