I went to drive my 2001 pontiac grand am se and the low coolant light came on, i was not even a mile home so turned around , pulled into driveway oil light came on i shut car off open hood and oil w

make sure your plastic coolant container mounted on inside right fender is at least half full. Keep your eye on the temp gauge and make sure the car doesn't overheat. These sensors are very touchy and sometimes cause a fault when actually there is no real problem. Also make sure you didn't knock loose the oil pressure sending unit connector, located near the oil filter. Happy Motoring!

I have a 2001 potiac grand prix with no tail lights the same bulb work turn signal an brake lights they r fine ive checked all fuses and replaced all bulbs even replaced the light switch still no tail

no, they are not the same. The multifunction switch is on the steering column and controls wipers, turn signals, and hi/low beam headlights. Dash switch is on the dash and generally turns lights on and off and frequently also controls brightness of dash lights. I had a Camry that had the same thing happening...ended up having a toggle switch put in to control the tail lights...fixed the issue.

How do I reset the change oil light after changing the oil. It did not go out.

Try this and if it does not work let me know.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position without starting the engine.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
3. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, or the display reads "OIL LIFE INDEX RESETTING 100%" then the system is resetting.
4. Turn the ignition key to "OFF", and then start the vehicle.
5. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator comes on and stays on, or CHANGE OIL SOON is displayed then the system did not reset and repeat the procedure.

1. To reset the OIL LIFE indictor if equipped with a Trip Computer, press the TRIP MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE.
2. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 99%.

Why does a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix make a ticking noise at 40 MPH ?

Please try to give more information about the ticking.
Can you pin point the source or location of the Tick?
Is it coming from inside of the Car or out? From the dash, Wheel, Etc
And is the tick a steady tick, Maybe a metalic noise?
Try to expand the on the subject the best that you can.
Then I'll get back to you on this matter.

Change Oil light stays on after oil change.

Turn the key to the on position(do not start the engine) Pump the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The change oil light should start flashing. Turn the key to the off position. The next time you start the vehicle, the light should go on briefly then go out.
