Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

While driving my 2004 pontiac grand prix, my service brake indicator came on. I recently had my brakes checked and was told that pads and rotors were fine, but that within the next few month I would need new front pads (80, 000 miles). I came to my destination, depressed the parking brake after shutting off the car and released it. Came back to my car 20 minutes later and started the car and the light did not come back on. Could the sensor be monitoring the amount of pad left, or is there something else going on. I have had numerous problems with my sensors on this car.

At 80000 miles there is a very good chance that you are ready for new front pads. That is precisely what I tell my customers when I exchange brake pads. "Come and see me in about 80000 miles" The sensors will pick up on a fimly depressed brake pedal and then store it in the computer. This indicator is fed by two sources brake wear and milage. It's best to get them now before you end up needing rotors too! Thanks, Dana

Why does my 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix make a clicking sound when braking right after the brakes were changed?


My first guess would be one of the brake pads or the caliper is moving. You should be able to jack up one wheel at a time and find out where the noise is coming from.

I have a 02 grand prix the abs light and trac off light came on and when i push my brakes half way down it makes a grinding noise got codes c0040 and c0245 from auto zone what is the problem please help i...


c0040 indicates right front wheel sensor, so problem is more than likely sensor or wiring to it. c0245 indicates wheel speed sensor frequency error. This confirms wheel sensor or wiring.

2004 pontiac grand prix abs comes on when brakes.


Hi Cathy, Have a diagnostic scan carried out on your vehicle. The problem could be with the ABS pump or possibly one of the ABS speed sensors attached on each wheel. Regards John

The brakes on my 2004 Gran Prix make a squeal and the petal goes to the floor when I stop sometimes and then while attempting to drive to work they were doing it none stop. Then the ABS light came on along...


Hi , Sounds like you need new pads on the front. That squealing is a indicator that th brakes need to be replaced. Also you need to check the computer codes for your brakes system. Go to a repair shop for that. Good luck.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix making noise on l-f wheel. Sounded like brake indicator so I took apart to check and there is a tab about 3-4 inches long rubbing on brake rotor. Is this an indicator for some thing...


  • This is called a sensor. When the pads ware down to the point they need to be changed those sensors will begin to scrape on the rotor. If the pads are not changed real soon they will ruin the rotors too. I recommend a replacement of the pads and an inspection of the rotors real real soon.

Rubber grinding noise when braking and turning 98 grand prix v6


I would guess you should have brakes checked. Sounds like you might possibly need new pads and rotors are probably warped.
