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!

There is a device in the steering column that switches the turn signal back off. These do go out occasionally and since your vehicle is a 2007 it will probably be covered under warranty.

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!

Do you have the fuel tester hooked the in the overgrown air valve on the fuel rail in the back of the engine? Or do you have the fuel line unhooked in the back and hooked to the pressure pump? You want the fuel pressure to be in that 60 lb range so if you are hooked into the pressure valve on the fuel rail allowing fuel to go through, then I am betting it is the fuel pressure regulator. To get to that, you have to take the throttle body off and take the plastic plenum that covers the injector packs. On the back of the mount where your six pack of injectors are sits the pressure regulator. If it is faulty then it is dumping fuel instead of holding the pressure like it should.
Get a Chilton or Clymer manual and it shows you in pretty good detail how to fix it. I've done it to my 98 S10 with the same engine.
If you unhooked the fuel line so you are losing pressure from the line back to the pump then I would say your pump is letting fuel back to the tank when it shuts off. My money is on the first possibility though.

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.
