Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

My 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix won't start. The lights/battery is working. I can hear the fuel pump ingaging. I've checked the fuses & they seem to be fine. I'm use to looking at manuals that aren't so electronically ran. I hear a clicking noise when I try to turn it over. DO I have to get a new starter or is there something else I should look at first?

Either the battery is bad or the connections to the battery are corroded and/or loose. The lights may work but that doesn't mean the battery is good. The lights only draw about 20 amperes, the starter draws from 200 to 400 amperes.

If the battery connections are tight and clean, then most likely you need a new battery. A car battery store can test this for you.

SOURCE: how do I change brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Grand

Yes, You can buy a manual at your lacal parts store.
However, It's not that hard. But , you didn't say if you
need to change the front or rear pads?
I'll assume your refering to the front.
1st You'll need to jack up the car if you only have one
Jack then, pick the side you are too start say left front.
Jack the car up like chainging a tire BUT, Jack the car
up but, leave the tire touching the ground with, some weight
still on the tire with a lug rench turn the lug nuts JUST enought
to loosin the nut DO NOT take the nut off, maybe 1/4 " only.
Do the same on the others. Now, Jack up the car until the tire
is off the ground. NOW, Put a Jack Stand under the car never
NOT use a stand. Remove the nuts and tire.
Turn the wheel to the right it will give you more room to work.
You'll need to remove the caliper that holds the pads on.
There are two screws that hold the caliper on. I believe,
there 13mm remove the screws (Take them all the way OUT)
Remove, The caliper the pads, will stay in the holder.
Remove, the pads you may need a screw driver to get the
pads out.There are two pads that have a scencer on them
one for each side PUT that pad on the inside holder.( sencer down)
NOW rember you need, too make room for te new pads.
You need a c- clamp to push the piston BACK into the
bottom of the caliper. Be sure the piston is at the bottom of the caliper
or the caliper will NOT fit back on. Install the new pads into the holder.
.Then, put the caliper back on to it's mount over the new pads.
Put the two caliper bolts back and, your done.
Reverse, the infromation from the top.

SOURCE: 2006 pontiac grand prix, heat only gets warm not

Have you checked the coolant level? If that checks out ok... With the engine fully warmed up touch the heater core hoses where they go into the fire wall (about the center of the firewall). They both should be pretty hot to the touch. You'll likely find one hot and one warm. If this is the case flushing the heater core will likely get your heat blowing out hot again.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

I drove my car a half mile away from my house and the engine shut off and my check gages light came on my heads-up display. We talked to a few mechanics and they said there was not enough fuel pressure so...


While the key is in the last position before the start or during starting, check if you are getting fuel to the fuel line to the engine. If there is none then the fuel pump fuse or relay may have gone bad or the fuel pump itself.

Engine not starting


check around the battery area under the hood, for what looks like wires with fuses . theyre called fusible links. its possible that they are bad. its also possible that the starter is bad, but the solenoid on the starter is ok. ALSO check for inline fuses in or around the battery area . my camaros have them, but they are generally for the fuel pump.

in your case , it seems as if the starter is bad.

I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix GT and it won't start. i have determined that its not getting fuel. I replaced the blown fuel pump fuse, but I'm still not getting fuel. There is a fuel pump relay also,...


The no fuel problem is usually caused by a defective or bad fuel pump. The blown fuel pump fuse is actually pointing to the pump or circuit being bad.

Need to drop the tank, so let someone who has done it before do it, it's worth it.

Gasoline is kind of dangerous to deal with since it is extremely flammable and volatile.

No pressure at fuel rail on 88pontiac grand prix can not hear fuel pump kick on


Did you check your fuel pump relay and related fuses to make sure no fuses were blown? Passenger side under-hood electrical center shows # 3 fuse 20 amp fuse controlling fuel pump and ECM. Also #12 is also Fuel pump relay in Passenger side under-hood electrical center. These would be the first things to check.
