Sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator, or possibly the MAF sensor.

2004 grand am wont start. checked fuses. replaced fuel pump and regulator. still wont start


if you turn the car to run is your security light staying on or flashing continusly.HEY THERE, this is what is called security mode. If you so much as disconnect the battery the system must be relearned. The manule way goes like this;put your key in ignition. putt a battery charger on it,at least 10 amp. charge. know turn the key as if you were trying to start it, as soon as you here the starter click let go of the key. let it sit with the key in the run position for at least 10-20 min. go get a coffee, then turn key off wait 10 sec,s start it. The security light will flash and then go out if you were sucsessful

My 1997 grand am runs rough, theres oil around the 1 spark plug, if it sits and runs for a 10-15 min it will start to get hot. also the gas gauge will say 1/2 tank then after a mile or 2 it will say 1/4 ...


Those are troubled cars and older ones are even more troubled with problems I would sell it and get anything but a pontiac and a dodge stay away warning! warning! You got high miles on that ? Its a money drain.

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...


You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!

96' grand am 6 cyl. 2 door. turns off right after started.


(1)look at the wires in the steering column where it adjust up and down and see if some wires are touching inside the steering cover.
(2) it a reason to suspect a bad ground to the motor also will cause it too

1994 grand prix,motor wont start by key ,if i jump the starter it starts and runs for about 5 sec.security stays on for about 5 mins. then goes out still wont start


This is likely caused by a burned out alternator, charge the battery, verify it will hold a charge and replace the alternator.
