Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

I have a 2000 pontiac grand am 2.4 liter 2 door. My solenoid isn't getting power from the ignition. I need electrical schematics for the ignition system. I checked the assosiated fuses and they are good. I removed the wire from the solenoid and read 12V when the ignition was turned on. But when i connected the wire back to the solenoid the voltage dropped all the way down. If i jump from the battery pos. lead on the solenoid to the ignition signal wire and turn the key, the car starts. I believe there is a bad contact somewhere in the ignition system that I need a diagram for.

It is the solenoid.
The solenoid is also the ignition relay switch.
GM cars used to have an ignition relay switch in addition to the solenoid. Now both are in the same unit.... the solenoid.

I have a Pontiac Grand am se 2.3 liter that won't start everything powers on but hen I turn the key to start it nothing happens not even a clicking to stay an get it t I start??


Turn on headlamps and try to start. Do lights dim? Yes= bad battery connections, low charge on battery, bad solenoid, bad starter. Not dimming? bad solenoid, bad starter switch, bad neutral safety switch, bad starter relay, bad ignition switch. Use voltmeter to see if ignition switch works, and so on.

We own a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM, 3.4 liter, 2 door coupe with front wheel drive and recently replaced the transmission and now can't find our key set. Great start We hired a local Lock Smith who...


You can purchase new Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters from the dealer or you can order them online at the web sites listed below or several others. Your vehicle provides for programming the RKE transmitters without the use of a scan tool. Follow the instructions below.

2000 PONTIAC GRAND AM RKE TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

WITHOUT A SCAN TOOL

1. Close all vehicle doors. Remove key from ignition lock cylinder

NOTE: STEPS 2 AND 3 MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN 25 SECONDS OF PRESSING THE DOOR UNLOCK SWITCH
2. Press and hold door UNLOCK switch. While holding UNLOCK switch, insert and remove the key in the ignition lock cylinder twice. Do not rotate the lock cylinder.
3. Insert the key a third time, leaving the key in the lock cylinder. Keep the lock cylinder in the LOCK position for the remainder of the procedure. Release the door UNLOCK switch. The chime will sound 3 times to signal that the programming/diagnostic mode is active.
4. Press and hold LOCK and UNLOCK at the same time on the RKE transmitter for approximately 4 seconds. The chime will sound 2 times signaling that the transmitter has been programmed.
5. Repeat step 4 for each transmitter being programmed. (You can program up to 4 transmitters.)

6. To exit program mode, turn the key to the RUN position then back to the LOCK position and remove the key. Your transmitters should now work to lock and unlock your doors.

Car wont start


The starter solenoid is not getting power from the ignition switch to activate the starter. To repair, you will need to get a schematic and trace the wires out. It could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complicated as a bad ignition switch.

Ignition Key Lock solenoid not working


The closed park position switch within the automatic transaxle supplies voltage to the steering electric park lock. The energized electric park lock pulls the mechanical lock in the ignition key cylinder away from the cylinder. The ignition key can then be turned to the LOCK position. The key can then be taken out of the cylinder.

I have 11.53v on the power side and ground side to battery has 11 ohms ? do a voltage drop test on the ground side not ohms . Do you know what voltage drop is ? Learn the right testing procedure , you could have broken wire strands inside the insulation , apply current an the circuit won't work correctly , but would show ok with ohm test's .
