Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

I tried to hook up an amp to a factory radio of a 2004 pontic grand prix. The car will not start now. the lights on the dash board all light up and the head lights come on but it will not start. I was wondering if the on star could maybe have something to do with it or another thing that I was thinking was if the fact that the key was a made key and i am not sure if it had a chip in the original and if that could be causing the problem. please help

    i checked all the fuses and they are all good. i even hooked the radio back up the factory way. the radio comes on along with all the lights but it still won't start. does the key have to have a chip in order for it to start?

Try to backtrack all the things you did. See if there was something you cut, and triggered this. The best way to solve this problem is to try to pinpoint exactly what you did to trigger this. Was a wire that was cut touch a metal part? How did you connect the amp? Did you tap the input to the amp from the factory radios speaker? etc. If you triggered a disabling system, it would be very difficult to bypass that especially if it was factory installed. Trying to disable that would only add to the problem you already have.

No this cant do must damage even if the radio was bad. It could blow some fuse that is it.
The first thing that you should check, are a the fuse intact.

No dashboard power, except radio light, and theft detergent light


try cleaning the terminals, jump starting or use your key to unlock your driver door manually. Perhaps the factory alarm is armed and will prevent the vehicle from starting

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.

you need a factory radio relocation harness that leaves the factory radio hooked into the system as it is part of the computer memory system. i have a 04 grand prix gt2 & i bought a pioneer dvd/ipod system, and i noticed mine wasnt working either. i got my harness from scosche and it was around $53 bucks. GM06B...thats the part number! hope i helped you out!

I get a po455 code on my 2004 grand prix


I had a check engine light on for my gas cap. I fueled up and sometimes it would say "check gas cap" So i just plugged it in under the steering wheel and cleared the check engine light from my dash board. So far so good.

Dash lights


You will have to replace the light bulbs. In order to do this, you'll have to take apart the cluster and radio to get to them. Visit www.oqcgp.net to search for fixes to common grand prix problems
