SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Thermostat

as you face the engine the thermostat bell is on the right (drivers side) Follow the radiatoe hose. Remove the two bolts and raise the bell still attatched to the hose. the thermostat is there with the rubber seal. You can gently pry the thermostat out with a screwdriver or something similar. Put in new thermostat be sure it is the same as the old one, and then replace or change the seal (be sure it is the smae size and thickness as the old one as I got the wrong size from Napa) Then replace the bell, and tighten, but not over tighten. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt not shifting into OD

this trans is the 4T65E. It needs a 4th clutch hub. The splines strip off around 120k or more because they weren't hardened from the factory. The new ones have the hardened splines. The trans needs to come out and be partially torn down. I've fixed alot of these. Change the EPC solenoid while you are there. They wear and hang up causing intermittent harsh shifts

You can drive them forever without changing the hub but you'll never have 4th gear

I had the same problem my car. It started once in a while until the light would not go off. My husband looked at it and he said the wire on the antilock brake bearing hub corroded and came off. Maybe yours is starting to corrode. My husband said to tell you that there are two wires that come out of the back of the bearing hub. He soddered it together on mine and I hav not had a problem since.

SOURCE: LOOKING FOR A FUSE BOX DIAGRAM FOR 2004 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX GT

It's under the hood, on the driver's side, under a square, black box with a lightning symbol on it. Loosen the flower-shaped screw that holds the lid of the box down, remove the lid, flip it upside down and when you look at the inside of the lid, you'll see a map of all your car's fuses. There's also a fuse diagram on the very end of the dash, but it's accessible only when you open the driver's side door. When you're driving, that end of the dash is blocked by the closed door.

SOURCE: abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

My ABS, traction control, and steering assist lights are on in my 2004 pontiac grand prix gt. The rear wheel bearing assembly was just replaced. what would cause this?


Hi, the wheel speed sensor and tone ring are built into the bearing/hub assembly. Make sure the new hub contains an ABS wheel sensor and the cable was properly connected. If it is properly connected, the new hub may be defective.

In the pontiac grand prix, is the traction control 4wheel drive or similar?


No! Traction control works similar on various automobile manufactures. There are speed sensors attached to the brake calipers or brake parts of the car sensing how fast each tire is turning. This information is feedback to the powertrain brain box. If the computer determines that one drive wheel is turning faster than the other in a split second brake pressure is placed automatically to the wheel that is turning faster, both wheels turn at nearly the same rate. This is done agin automatically by the antilock brake power controller.

On the specific car that you speak of, I don't believe all wheel drive was an option. So only the front wheels pull the vehicle forward.

Nope, the traction control system will not be an issue, just do not damage or strain any wiring, same as you would not damage or stress the brake lines.

Abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix


You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

Trac on/off


THERE IS A SWITCH ON THE DASH LOCATED ABOVE THE RADIO LABELED ( ETS) THAT IS THE CONTROL SWITCH FOR THE ELECTRONIC TRACTION CONTROL. IF THE SWITCH IS ON AND FRONT TIRES LOSE TRACTION IT WILL NOT LET THE ENGINE GO OVER A CERTAIN RPM. IF THE SWITCH IS OFF THE ENGINE CAN RED LINE ON RPMS. THE SWITCH BASICALY ACTS AS A GOVENOR WHEN IT IS TURNED ON.
