My 1998 grand prix does the exact same thing. It just shuts off while driving. I still have battery power. I have called pontiac dealers in my area and they dont seem to have any idea to fixing without changing everything in hopes the hit the problem
Can you narrow it down.

Better check with a test light for power to the small wire that goes to the starter from the key switch. If no power need to check for a neutral safety switch or fuse. Or the starter you got is bad. Alternator will not cause not to crank over

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP....while i was driving it just went dead and wouldn't start back up. Could it just be the battery? Before it died it was cutting out.


Your alternator went out allowing the battery to die, taking away power from the spark plugs, Please get new alternator and replace battery this should fix your problem.

Car won't start.


It sounds like you have a bad alternator. Put a voltmeter on the alternator output to ground and see if you have at least 13.2 volts. If you dont, replace alternator.

if the key won't turn all the way off...it's probably a bad lock cylinder.
