You noticed if this any security light is flashing on the dash. Its possible that the "theft" system is armed? You unplugged the battery recently? Sounds like you may have a problem with the ignition switch, or ignition lock cylinder. These fairly common for this condition. You can try this to relearn the theft system...
1. Turn the ignition to the ON position, not crank, with the engine off.
2. Wait 10 minutes, or until the theft/security light goes out, or stops flashing.
3. Turn key off, wait 5 seconds.
4. Perform steps 1-3, 3 times for a total of 30 minutes.
5. Turn key off for 10 seconds, then try t start. If this does not work, then the system will need to be diagnosed further.

Motor dies while running


sounds to me that you may have a plugged catalytic converter. try disconnecting the converter and running the engine, also you can check for restricted exhaust coming out tail pipe.

My 1999 grand prix stalls and dies at stops.


My Pontiac Grand Prix is also a 99, it has 216,+ thousand miles on it, it runs great, idles good, I need to replace the oxygen sensor tho as it shuts off on me while driving or sometimes coming to a stop. You might try checking the fuel filter and pump as well.

Squeal under hood 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT (3.8 L)


I would start with a belt. While removing it feel how much tension the tensioner has on it, on the 3800 egnine they have a stiff tensioner(sorry I don't have any specs for how much) After you get the belt off you can look at all of the pulleys and spin them to see if the bind or look for stuff stuck in the grooves on the pulleys.
It sounds to me like the belt is streched. I would not recommend one of those gator back belts, they seem to make more noise sooner than a good v notch belt. But thats just my opinion!
