Double check the positive connection at the battery. Check both but pay attention to the positive. These batteries have a problem with the terminal working loose from the inside and causing exactly this issue. This uses a 8mm or 5/16" wrench(which ever you can find first, or pliers if no wrenches). Make sure both are tight. If both are tight, remove the battery and most autoparts stores will test them free of charge and replace as necessary. Let me know if you need anything else.

Defective fan clutch, if it has one. With a cold engine only, try spinning the fan blade by hand. If it does not turn freely, the fan clutch is defective. Warning: When the engine is hot, the fan can turn on by itself with the car not running and keys are NOT in the ignition.

my 1998 grand prix does the exact same thing. It just shuts off while driving. I still have battery power. I have called pontiac dealers in my area and they dont seem to have any idea to fixing without changing everything in hopes the hit the problem
Can you narrow it down.

98 pontiac grand prix gt batt goes dead after two days


Either there is a drain on the battery or the battery itself is bad. You can start by cleaning the battery with a solution of water and baking soda. This will remove any and all drain in the case of the battery and will get the corrosion cleaned up off of it. The next thing that i would do is check the amps on the battery and take the fuses out one by one and then see what circuit that the drain is in. Once you have isolated it to a particular circuit then back track the circuit wiggling all of the wires and components until you have isolated the drain and then fix it.

I think its you alternator, the battery and alternator kind of work back to back with each other. I will take the car to shop that you know and can trust and have them diagnose the car all together. Good Luck.
