Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have a 97 grand prix gt that will not start. It turns over fine. I have checked the fuel pump and don't have any power. I have checked all fuses and they are good, and replaced the fuel pump relay. I have pulled a plug and no power there either. While reading in a GM repair manual, it said to check the wires behind the fuse block under the hood with a test light, by checking between ground and the one of the wires to the fuel pump relay. When the key is turned on the test light should come on for 2 seconds. It did not. I also noticed I have no dash lights or head lights when the key is turned to on. I suspect the PCM is bad not allowing power out to where it needs to go but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have headlights when key is off?
if you don't more than likely the problem is bad fusible link
a fusible link is like a fuse buit into a wire
check the wires coming of starter (not the big thick wire the other small ones)
make sure there not broke or melted

    Yes, I do have headlights with the key off. The dome light and the pwr windows/locks work also. I checked the wires from the starter and they appear to be in good shape. No signs of too much heat anywhere. I did not know exactly where they go so I could not ohm them out with my volt meter. Anythng else?

My 2000 Grand Prix GT is losing cylinder fire exactly at 60 mph while accelerating every time. Then the Trac warning light flashes once. It runs fine below 60. Noticed no Speed Cont. fuel pump relay.


What engine ? could have 3.1 or 3.8 L No resistor ? for what ?
Noticed no Speed Cont. fuel pump relay. What are you talking about . Are you talking about no control for the fuel pump relay from the PCM/ECM engine computer ? The PCM Energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds when key is first turned on . Two second prime of fuel system . When cranking the engine the PCM/ECM will only energize the fuel pump relay if it see's an input from the crank sensor .

I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix GT and it won't start. i have determined that its not getting fuel. I replaced the blown fuel pump fuse, but I'm still not getting fuel. There is a fuel pump relay also,...


The no fuel problem is usually caused by a defective or bad fuel pump. The blown fuel pump fuse is actually pointing to the pump or circuit being bad.

Need to drop the tank, so let someone who has done it before do it, it's worth it.

Gasoline is kind of dangerous to deal with since it is extremely flammable and volatile.

Where is the fuel pump cut off switch located on a pontiac grand prix se 1997?


There is no fuel pump cut off switch in General Motors vehicles.If you don`t have fuel pressure or the pump is not running you have to check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.You can check the fuel pump fuse and make sure it is good.Hope this helps.Good luck.

97' Pontiac Gran Prix Won't Stay running


Known GTP problem.

You most likely have a bad fuel pump resistor, which controls 2 speeds of the fuel pump.

To check to see if this is the problem, there is a trick you can do and its very easy to do. Go to the attached link, and bend the tab my finger is pointing at and then plug it back in. If your car starts and runs fine, well we just solved the problem.
