At night when you press the gas the lights should get brighter not dim. Sounds like you have a charging problem. Possibly the alternator.

Plenty of power turn key car just clicks 1999 pontiac grand prix


have you checked power and signal at the starter motor, the large wire @ the starter will have battery voltage at all times and the smaller "signal wire" will have power only when the ignition cylinder is being cranked, if both ok then you will have a stuck/seized solenoid on the starter . lightly tapping the starter motor while "cranking " will sometimes allow the vehicle to start.

I have a 99 mercury grand marquis ls the battery light flashes on and off while I'm driving not repeatedly maybe about four times while I'm driving had the alternator checked it was good repla


Battery may have broken plates in cells or cracked plates. May show battery is good , but i would replace it.
Also, starter solenoid may be bad, replace starter as needed.

Hey guys, i am no mechanic not even close, but my pontiac grand prix se 4-dr automatic with 6cyl, has been acting strange when i first start it and drive it maybe 30 min the low coolent light comes on and...


The first things to do are: 1. Make sure the radiator is full when the engine is cool (check the fluid in the radiator as well as the overflow tank). 2. Make sure the thermostat is working. 3. Have the lower intake manifold gasket checked. The Grand Prix SE came with a 3.1L engine (standard) and these engines are famous for lower intake manifold gasket problems.

What is the correct placement for plug wirs on a 1999 pontiac grand am se 6 cylinder. i just cahnged the spark plugs but when i sit at a light in drive it jerks. what could be the problem.


If the wires were connected incorrectly the idling would be very rough while sitting. The very front of the engine starting at the passenger side is 1,3,5
The side toward the firewall is 2,4,6
Start from the passenger side on all numbers above. HINT....Also the intake has the firing number by each cylinder

Will not start


Have your battery charged and load tested to make sure it's OK. Then check the charging system and alternator drive belt for tension and condition. If car won't staqrt after charge, you may need to remove alternator to have it tested on a bench. Otherwise, put a volt meter across both terminals. With engine off, volts should be 12 or higher. Running should be 13,5-14V running with all lights, heater and A?C on should not drop lower than 12.8v.Low readings running indicate a bad alternator. If everything in charging system checks out OK, problem is likely in the starter or starter relay.
