I believe you need a Coded Key for your vehicle.. If your original key had a chip underneath the black cover of the key. You may need to get the ignition switch an the key from the Dealer, an once it is installed they will have to Code it.. Goodluck..

Starts and runs with remote but will shut off in 4 seconds with key


Check to see if your security light is on and stays on when you turn the key. I bet you need to have your ignition switch changed out. There are two small wires that go from the key sensor down the column and they tend to break after so many years.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - multi-fuse related problems.The A/C keeps shorting out and the garage replaces the fuse. Where is the fuse box for the A/C located? Also, the radio display is dim/non existent...


I can't answer because I have other question open, sorry, but here I send any comments and clues to solve (I hope).

For the FUSE PANEL, location and description, I suggest check the 2000-Pontiac-Grand-Prix-Owners-Manual (page 330 and next). A/C have one "diode". Check it.

About your radio display, sound like a internal problem, keep in mind that the CD is working.

The Security Litgh, its possible that you have any problem with the THEFT system or any aftermark alarm (if you have).

To reset the OIL LIFE indictor if equipped with a Trip Computer: Press the trip MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to be 99 percent.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

My 1998 Grand prix is not starting except when it wants to.


It was the alarm. Although we've never used it, somehow the switch was stuck on, and wasn't allowing us to start the car. it also burned out the ignition switch. Had to completely disable the alarm (removed it completely) and changed the ignition switch.

Headlights and radio display goes off sometimes


Certain circuits go through the ignition switch and sometimes the points in the switch become gummed up with carbon. The easiest fix is to replace the ignition switch. The switch can, however, be disassembled and cleaned by a skilled mechanic (there are many small springs and parts that have to be assembled properly).

Long story short, replace the ignition switch.

Hope this helps

Ignition problem


It is possible a fuseable link going to the starter may be faulty.
