Question about 2000 Pontiac Sunfire

Pontiac sunfire 2000

Hope you can help, have this Sunfire 2000 with 73000 miles. In the past weeks it just dies out. No warning, just goes out. Only lights to come on are the oil and battery. Now I did have a new fuel filter put on and will be checking to see if I need a ignition modular (sp). after getting the new fuel filter the car still stalls out. No problem restarting. I am the only owner. Even with low miles the car is on the interstate several times a week. As stated this problem just popped up from no were. Now my CD player went out also, but there would be no connection there huh. The lights for the radio and CD player comes on bright sometimes and other times it looks burned out.

Thanks for any help.

You might want to test your alternator and check your power connections to make sure they are tight and don't have corrosion.

To check the alternator on GM's. Start the car, pull the negative post off the battery. If the car dies, the alternator is bad. If it stays running. Check and/or replace the battery. Also check and clean or replace badly corroded wires from the battery.

I took a radio from one 2000 sunfire and put it in another. The LOC is on and will not work. How do I reset the code?

You need the code for the radio first off and i hope you have it. If you do, I gave you the procedure for the 1999 sunfire but am 99 percent sure it's the same as the 2000. I hope it is and I hope you have the code. I hope this helps and good luck.

2003 Pontiac Sunfire died on me, how/why?

If you hear a loud clank when you try to start it, but nothing turns, that is the starter trying to turn the engine, but the engine is locked up. If the timing chain/belt jumped, the engine would still spin.

I have a warning light that comes on and I dont know what it means. It is a red box that has a =n arrow pointing down towards a water wave. This is a 2000 Sunfire.

That is a warning light that comes on when you get low on antifreeze. You will see your reservior on the left where you add coolant. You can just buy some 50/50 mix from the store, and add it. You may want to do some investigation to see where you may have lost some coolant. Make sure you add some though. Hope that helps.
