Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

DLR's not on

Started my vehicle up one morning and everything was working ok. My DLR's came on like they always do and seemed to be working. I pulled into a parking space that had reflective glass and noticed that my DLR's were not on. I checked the fuses and the emergency brake and everything was ok there. The fuses were not burned out or anything. Nothing I have tried so far has worked. I took it to my Car dealership and they said that they were not supposed to come on unless it got darker or foggey. That is totally wrong. My DLR's have always come on when I started my car and stayed on until the regular headlights came on at dusk or until I turned my car off. Can anyone out there please give any suggestions. I can't get any satisfaction out of my dealership. Thank You.

    DLR's when out. I replaced the lights, checked all the fuses.and still nothing. They are the low beam which come on once it gets dark. The manual states there is a light sensor at the top of the instrument panal that controls these lights. can't seem to find it. Ther is also a Low Beam relay in the under hood fuse box. I planto check that tomorrow.

Have you tried replaceing your lights? i believe on some cars, the running lights are actually the high beam filament with a low voltage running thorough it, to save the filament. check them, but dont buy it if it dosent need it. check your electrical connections to the lights. but if they were loose, then your light wouldn't come on at all, even at night. i guess it depends on how its all set up. if you have seperate DLR's or ones built into the headlight.

Coolant leaks heavily from passengers side. Started yesterday morning on the way to work. I noticed the vents weren't blowing hot air. Then I noticed the car start to overheat. I didn't drive any more...

Ok, may i suggest that you check your HEATER COIL, you can located it by pulling up " HEATER COIL" for your specific vehicle, this is what your coolant travels thru while hot and air passes thru this coil to produce the heat to warm your vehicle and typically the heater coils are located on the passenger side. Now as far as the leak location, check heater coil connections it could be the coil itself. GOOD LUCK!

Pull the top off the distributor cap and see if there is moisture under there. WD 40 is good for driving out the moisture. The WD stands for "Water Displacer"

hi thanks for reply may i suggest you check your engines COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR this is not the temp sender unit which operates guage but a sensor which relays temp of coolant ie cold to the ecu and so informs for cold start required ! on older trucks/vehicles this was done by manual device on pump excess fuel delivered then when started auto cuts off same princple but now auto thro ecu+sensor if you had said smoke was heavy blue/blackish when engine eventually started ? this would have certainly been one or two glow plugs not working at optimum however? this seems not the case on your engine so points to ctsensor peugeot use a cable operated coolant sensor which works ok but yours is auto elec so may i suggest 1st check sensor wiring/plug are secure/clean also this sensor is screw into coolant engine block and looks like larger version of temp sender ? which if you check your manual it should give location and is easy enough to change ? hope this info helps ?
