Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Car keep stopping

I have a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix that has for the past 3 weeks stop and then once towed it starts fine. The first time the ignition coil and module was changed and then less than a week later the same thing happens. Once towed again it starts right up. The mechanic hooks it up to a machine and can not find anything wrong with it.

    I am having the same problem. I have had my car towed and "fixed" twice, the first time replacing the alternator and battery and the second time nothing could be found wrong. Lights, radio, etc work fine, but when I turn the key nothing happens.

Is it throtle body injected? if so the injector maybe bad or rather the wires going to the injector may have a short. bothe wires should be "hot'. Also a crank sensor will make your car act the same way. Let me know

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GT - Blower Motor will not blow in the lower speeds, High Speed (5) only. Resistor has been replaced 3 times in the last twenty four hours, blower motor has been replaced twice in...

Your ignition switch is bogus. High speed runs directly off the speed control but the lower speeds go thru the ignition switch. Do not know why but that is the way it is!!!!!!!!
Replace the ignition switch and you will be back in business.

2001 Grand Prix with fuel pump problem.

i would be inclined to try the crank sensor first ,renew it ,but this is one of them jobs where a fellow mechanic is no doubt getting a earfull from a female ,i pity him but this sort of problem can be very testing to say the least as it always starts when hes around ,i know the feeling well of this sort of fault and the associated problems involved where if you get it right first time your a god and if you get it wrong ,well you can imagine.If only it would do it when hes driving it ,so what i do is to give the customer my escort diesel and i use their for a few days .

I purchased a key for my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix from the dealership and have purchased 2 others previously and they worked. I followed the directions as I had in the past and this time the car will start...

In the ignition switch where the key goes is two little wires that when you put your key in completes the circuit and tells the security that it is your key. If you have someone pull the steering wheel and look where the two little wires are it is most likely that one of them is about to break. If you have the two wires clipped it will bypass the security and let you start it without a dealer key. The flip to this is the security light will stay on all the time. The only way to stop this is replace the ignition key switch or pull the bulb.
