Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. I bought it the end of May 2010 from a used dealership. Whenever I got it it felt like it had a lot of power and I liked it but after having it a few months I realized the car was messed up. I live on a hill and afetr backing out to go up it in the morning my car feels like its taking forever and if I push the gas down real hard its like it peels out. Also, whenever I take off from a stop light or just a stop sign or from sitting still for a second it sounds like im peeling out. To me it feels like the front driver's side tire is slipping. I took it back to the dealership and he thought it might be the transmission fluid so they changed it and it worked a little better but did not quit completely and since then has gotten worse. We also had the rotors changed i believe on both sides in the front. I would really love to know what the problem is.

Jack it up and see if the back wheels are sticking or spinning freely, for that matter check all of the wheels

I have a 2005 pontiac grand prix. I just bought an after market radio. I don't know the what the wires do in the stock wiring harness. i can't figure out which color wire did what function

Well you can start by checking the wires behind the speakers. There are almost certainly 8 of those. Then there is a power wire which ought to be red and a heavier gauge, plus a ground, which should be black.

Or you can just refer to this wiring diagram :>)

Does the 2005 pontiac grand prix have a variable steering unit?

The safest way to tell is by taking the VIN to the dealership parts department and asking them. If you know what to look for, there should be an electrical modulator valve on the PS pump or pressure line if it has variable steering.
