Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
Check your battery. have it tested. check for parasitic draw. maybe the starter or the alternator but even cheaper. the solution after my story leading upto it.
my 97 did this when i worked at wal mart. put a new alternater on tested the battery at walmart (came back 9v 200 cca or something like that it was dead) bought a new one. same problem. take the top off your air filter and pull the tubing off the throttle body (unplug the sensor in the top of it first) there is a wad of wires going into your transmission. on mine the thick yellow one was cut. i scotch locked it back togeather and didn't have a problem since. most people associate the yellow to airbag but in this instance the wire was not this checks the park position of the transmission (of course the starter wont even engage unless it is in park or neutral)
