Why does my pontiac grand prix make a popping noise when turning?

Popping noises on turning are associated with worn CV joints. As remanufactured shafts are relatively cheap, it is best to replace both sides at the same time.

Hi, I have a couple/few issues with my 2002 grand

popping noise or clunk could come from cv joint of front axle shaft
and look if back plate of front wheel not touching the rotor
for electrical problem to say without seen it but I will check ground or bad connection to headlight switch (burn connection)
if there is no bad connection at radio the radio display dim come from the headlight switch and dome lamp rheostat

My 2003 gmc yukon pops when I turn deep. I had a mechanic to tighten up all the bolts underneathe my car, but it is still making a popping noise.

It is hard to tell without hearing your noise but you may have a steering shaft making some noise. They are notorious for it. GM came out with an updated version of it. It makes more of a clunking noise and not a popping noise though. It is not unsafe just annoying if that is your problem. They are about $100 and pretty easy to change and only available from a dealer I believe. You may have a ball joint making some noise. You should be able to take it to a reputable alignment or suspension shop and they should be able to check out your ball joints and suspension parts for you.
