1998 sunfire installed stereo and now dash lights and tail lights blowing fuse

Get a wiring harness connector for your 1998 GM car - THEN carefully follow each wire color on the harness. Do NOT connect anything to the GM orange wire except "Memory". Do NOT connect anthing to the harness for "Lights" or "Dash" or "DIM" - you will blow fuses. Only connect the Power, the memory and the speakers - period. Then you'll be safe.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - multi-fuse related problems.The A/C keeps shorting out and the garage replaces the fuse. Where is the fuse box for the A/C located? Also, the radio display is dim/non existent...

I can't answer because I have other question open, sorry, but here I send any comments and clues to solve (I hope).

For the FUSE PANEL, location and description, I suggest check the 2000-Pontiac-Grand-Prix-Owners-Manual (page 330 and next). A/C have one "diode". Check it.

About your radio display, sound like a internal problem, keep in mind that the CD is working.

The Security Litgh, its possible that you have any problem with the THEFT system or any aftermark alarm (if you have).

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Hi, I need help with a head unit, i own a Pontiac Grand Am 2002, and i decided to change a stock stereo system(i had a standard one, not monsoon) anyways, i bought a Pioneer deh-2100ib. I know that theres...

I had the same problem with mine and my 2004 Chevy Silverado. Gm is making the cars so that have to buy the quick connect harness for it to work. All the chimes, idiot lights, electric read out is all through the radio harness, so you can not cut and splice any more. These harnesses are expensive too. Best buy is price at $120.00 for the Grand AM. My truck was $115.00. Its F****king rediculous!!!

Just had my oil changed and now one preset station has the message " inov 712 ". What is the issue here? problem is on a 2001 pontiac grand am, 3.4

If your talking about the stereo preset station than it had nothing to do with the oil change. There's a myth that every time someone gets an oil change and they drive away and a problem comes up immediately it has to do with the oil change. An oil change is a drain of oil, change of oil filter, and then fill new oil. Your stereo has absolutely nothing to do with the stereo. It seems like the stereo got an issue. I hope this help.

Locked Pontiac Radio

I just bought the haynes book and here is what it says,, when the owner is restored to the stereo the stereo wont turn on and LOC will appear.. here is what it says.. ... turn on ignition switch but leave stereo off
Press MN button.. 000 should display ... it says that in 2002 two an dlater models
that it will learn a portion of the VIN number fo your vehicle.. so you will just have to try those numbers until it works.. syas that you press the HR button until the first one or two Numbers match your code.. Press AM/FM button SEC should appear indicating the stereo is unlocked.d. if LOC appears the numbers arent correct.. try again..

2002 pontiac grand am radio

Fuses are either bad or good no in between. Bulbs are the same way. You've got a dead short in your wiring most likely. Get that fixed or your car can burn up. No kidding. Could be a failing radio drawing way too much for the wiring size.
