Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Just started a week or two ago. When I start (and it starts fine) my 2002 sunfire, the time on the radio is midnight. I reset the correct time and am good for the day, usually, but after sitting over night or longer and I go to start it the time is again reset to midnight. Battery was changed about six months ago. So far not a problem just irratating but could this be a sign of something to look at before winter,

This sounds like a problem with the radio itself, though it may be a wire. I don't believe there is much risk of the problem spreading to other systems in the car. There is one wire to your radio that is always hot so that the memories can be kept. If you would like to troubleshoot, I can send you instructions. This would involve taking the radio out and checking the wire for voltage.

2002 sunfire will start but not come out of park and can not turn off


Sounds like a problem with the lock and switch. You probably should take the panels off the steering column and see if the lock cyl and switch are connected correctly.

Starter/Fuel Pump fuse, or the Relay Fuse blow


the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on

TRY THIS RESET FOR THE SECURITY SYSTEM.

PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
