I inherited a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am with a 3.1 V6 engine. The battery was dead. I installed a new battery. It's getting fuel and spark, but will not start. Any idea what the problem might be?

    There is a manual override if the system is factory installed or standard. Go to Advance Auto and they will give you a proceedure to override it but you may need the advance guys to pull the security code first

TRY CLEANING the post on your distributor (inside and out), and try replacing the plug wire. Sounds like your just not getting juice to that spark plug. Worst case, new distributor cap.

I have a 1997 grand am 4 cyl. that won't fire. Battery is good. It turns over but it will not start. This happened for about 5 tries yesterday but it started after that 3 or 4 more times with no problem.


Fuel injection system clogged, Fuel pump clogged, Lack of constant fuel pressure. Check fuel pressure, check for spark, also check voltage (improper voltage will prevent running).

Removed battery cables to reset check engine light, now cooling fans and ac comp. will not work. it is on a 97 pontiac grand prix 3.8 v6


There are fusable links that are inline to the battery positive cable. Make sure you have good connections or an open connection in the feed wire. It may have been broken upon installation. Question.,.did you install the negative cable first before the positive cable? If so it can short out a fusable link

1997 Grand Prix GT.new3800 and fuel pump, spark and gas, nofire!


Hello! When you swapped the engine, did you have the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) from the new motor as well? If not - you will need to have a "CASE" learn run on the PCM that you're currently using (the one from your previous engine). Important note: the 1997 Grand Prix GT's and GTP's have quite a few differences from the 98-03's. The CASE procedure is run using the Tech II tool and can be done at any dealership in about 10 minutes. If they aren't sure what that is, suggest to them that they follow the procedure for DTC 1336 - Crankshaft Position (CKP) System Variation Not Learned. :)


Hope this helps and good luck!
