Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

2004 Grand Prix was working perfectly fine, but yesterday when I tried to start it I got nothing. Tested the battery and it's not the battery. Keyless entry stopped working and interior lights sparked a little.

Hi Friend:

My name is David i'll be helping you with your problem:

#1) You said you Tested your Starter,OK If your starter is showing it has 12 -12.6 Volts then you do have a Fully charged Battery.

#2) Also to test the battery properly you need to Load test it ,with a Battery tester that you can Put the specified load on it. Cold Cranking Amps. that your battery indicates on the sticker on battery.

#3) Turn on your Head Lights, if battery is fully charged your head lights should be very Bright. If not.

#4) Next step make sure your Battery cables are Very Clean & Free of any Corrosion,also make sure NO corrosion is underneath the Battery Cables Insulation,To Check just take a Knife cut about 2 inches back from cable clamps and look for Acid build up Under that Area.(Blueish/Green & white) sometimes.

#5) If you see some corrosion replace the Cable or cables.

#6) Next you'll need to check is your starter relay.its located in your fuse block ,inside under dash/or its under your Hood in the Fuse and Relay box.Its about a inch square and has 4- Terminals (Plugs) on it. It should be labeled starter relay.

#7) Its only about a $10-$15 part.I would take it to your local auto parts they can check it there with a OHM meter for resistance.

#8) if all the Above checks out as Good,then check ALL your Wiring connections on your Starter.if they are all still good and tight and Clean.

#9) if All above checks out Good the only thing it could be is your Ignition Switch .Located on your Steering Column.

i'm sure these step by step solutions will find your problem and get you back on the road.

Replaced battery in a 2004 pontiac grand prix and car now has no power what so ever. It had power with it's old (bad) battery but nothing with the new battery (which has been tested). Is there...

Check the condition of the battery cables. Check them for continuity or resistance. If you get an infinite resistance reading end to end on any of the cables, it is bad. The cables have crimped terminations at the ends and often that's where they will fail. If you're handy and have some time and the tools, you can buy replacement ends, cut off the old ends and solder the new ones to the cable.

2004 Pontiac grand prix gtp won't start- fully

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

2004 grand prix gt going crazy

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.

Car no longer starts

Check battery terminals make sure they are not corroded and that the are tightly secured. If all is good the battery is at fault. Replace battery and then have charging system checked to make sure the alternator is working fine. Or you can remove the battery and have it load tested a t an Auto_zone for free.
