Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks
First thing is to make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight so full battery power gets thru to the battery wires.
If you have a volt meter or multimeter, read the battery voltage, should be 12-13 volts dc, after the car is started read the voltage again, if the alternator is working the voltage at the battery will rise about 2 volts to 14-15 volts. If this is not so, the alternator or charging circuit wiring is bad. If the voltages read are correct, then the battery may need replacing, not holding a charge, may need fluid if servicable, check its age.

Jump start the car and with the car running take the positive cable off of the battery, if the car shuts off you need to check the alternator because it is bad. Most automotive parts dealers can check it for you.

A few tests to see if alternator has gone are. start the car and the red light should go off on the dash. start the car and take a lead off the battery ( the car should still run ) and start the car in the dark.turn head lights on then hit the gas,the lights should go brighter as you rev...hope this helps

I have 07 Pontiac Grand Prix, the wrong key was inserted into the ignition the other day. Now when I try to use the correct key it will not insert completly in the ignition, goes in until last 1/4in of key. Im stuck, I bought the new lock cylinder but how do I get the old one out? I cant get the key to insert all the way so I cant get it to the "On" position, it will not turn at all. The key that was inserted in error is whole and nothing is missing it seems like there is something stuck. Any help would be appreciated...
