SOURCE: i want to extract my radio code before i remove

The "Theftlock" theft deterrent system is a feature on all base and uplevel radios. There is no need to
program a security code into the radio as in past model years. The theft deterrent system now utilizes
class 2 serial data to determine if the radio is in the appropriate vehicle. Each time the radio receives
the "run" power mode message, it compares the VIN information it has stored to the VIN information
received from a module on the class 2 serial data circuit responsible for transmitting that information.
If a mis-match occurs, the radio display will indicate to the user the radio is locked. Once this takes
place, a DTC will set, the radio will not respond to any button presses and become inoperative. The
two scenarios able to cause this condition are:

  • A radio is installed from another vehicle.
  • A module which communicates on the class 2 serial data circuit which supplies VIN information to the radio is replaced and not properly setup with the correct VIN information for that vehicle.

What is transmission valve body?


It is what lies on the other side of the flat pan on the bottom of the transmission (the pan held in place by many small bolts.) On newer cars the valve body contains several electrical solenoids that control hydraulic channels that move pistons that operate clutches to select the various "gears" that couple the engine to the wheels.

Too, the valve body is typically the area that contains the transmission oil filter element, which should be replaced periodically. That requires removing all of those small bolts to "drop the pan."

I replaced the snap ring and retainer because they were both broke and still no luck with overdrive working


Overdrive would not engage at 35+ mph. Took trans pan off, removed filter, dropped valve body out. Found broken snap ring on overdrive servo. Removed and replaced snap ring. Opened valve body and found 1 of the broken pieces stuck in a valve. Replaced all valve body gaskets. Put valve body back in with 95 in/lbs torque. Put in new filter. Pan on with 120 in/lbs or 10 ft/lbs. Refill with trans fluid. Run through gears. Lower vehicle. Test drive.

How do you change the oil on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


you need to remove the drain plug from the oil pan, make sure the pan plug gasket is not dropped. Then you remove the filter & replace with a new one. After the oil has been left to drain. put the pan plug snuggly back into the oil pan. Refill 4.5 liters of 5w 30w engine oil. Start the engine, check for any leaks from both the new filter & pan plug. Turn off igntion & check the oil level on the dipstick. to make sure it is at the topp off the cross stitched area, if not add more a half liter at a time until it is at the full mark. There is nothing to grease with this car. U should also check transmission fluid, whick needs to be checked while the engine is running in park, there is a hot & cold safe level so check it carefully.

I need to change the Transmission control solenoid on my 04 pontiac grandprix 3.8L, 3800 series 3..do you have a diagram where i can locate it. also the transmission fluid was changed yesterday..the only...


Check or replace your TPS (throttle position sensor). The other reason for hard shift is a worn Boost valve and will need to be replaced, or a faulty transmission fluid EPC (electronic pressures control valve). Both Boost valve and EPC are located in the Valve Body and can be replaced with out dropping the valve body, but have to drop the transmission pan. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Grand prix wont idle


There are 3 things that should be checked.
The idle air control valve (some call it a fuel bypass valve)
Throttle position sensor
and a fuel pressure test done. The idle air control is usually mounted on the throttle body, so is the tps which has a black plastic casing. good luck.
