Question about Cars & Trucks
It's had a problem for YEARS of turning itself off (& on) like rebooting itself when it feels like it in the middle of a show. It took maybe 20 seconds? to do the whole on/off/on again cycle (while I missed all the words of the program I was watching) so I would quickly press the remote twice, which would shorten the cycle. Now, it is very sick, & when in standby, pressing the either the remote, or the box itself, instead of turning it ON, will just turn it completely OFF. For the last couple of weeks I've just left the box always ON, with numbers displayed, but occasionally I accidentally automatically turn the remote OFF. Then it takes about 40 (or more?) tries at turning it ON again, while waiting 20 seconds each try, to see if it is going to do it. He is in a 'coma' once again now, & apart from trying over & over again hoping it will come back to 'life', can I open the box up & DO anything? or is the chip too corrupt or worn? Thank you very much!

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

SOURCE: Radio wont work
go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.
Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio

i have a 2003 grand prix gtp more than likely it is your resistor pack which is located about center in your passenger footwell. This is actually a very common problem on W-body vehicles. I replaced mine after about 30k miles on the car my blower would only work on the 4-5 setting and eventually went out compltely. Go to www.zzperformance.com and order a replacement from them this is your best price option, as well as anythign else you could possibly need for your GP for pretty cheap. BTW the resistor pack is a royal pain in the *** to replace you wont be able to see it but rather you will lying on your back blindly shoving your hand up in the dash trying to find the two 10mm bolts that drop the resistor pack out. It took me about 2-3 hours replace only because i could not see the pack and it was super hard to get the wrench to stay on the bolts and super hard to get the screws back into their holes. Best of luck to you!

It sounds like your fuel filter has gone it life time and now to dirty to permit the proper fuel flow if any.
Start with checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have over 45 PSI i believe but could be wrong, can not remember could be 60 PSI.
If you can not check the fuel pressure, change the fuel filter first then see if it starts. If it does not, then it may be a bad fuel pump and need to be replaced. The fuel pump is electric and have a life time too and it may be at it's end also.
Good luck and keep me posted.
