The dash in 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand AM's is known to have issues with "curling" and discoloration. While the only solution to completely fix the issue is to replace the dash, there is another, less professional way to fix it. Start by using a blow dryer to heat up the top of the dash, hold the hairdryer several inches from the dash and move it back and forth until the dash is soft enough to be manipulated. Now, pull the dash up and away from the windshield, and using a strong glue such as "Gorilla glue", glue the underside of the dash. Now push the dash back into place and lodge a hard object between the dash and the windshield. Let the glue dry for at least 16 hours before removing the object used to hold it in place. The dash should no longer looked "curled".

Have a 2001 F250 diesel truck that has been having problems starting. First when you put the key in ignition and wait for the delay start (due to it being a diesel), sometimes nothing will happen. Try...


in these model years it is very common for a water leak to develop at the left front a pillar...that the left side of windshield...once the leak develops it runs down the inside of trim, behind dash and hits the fuse box and gem module with water, shorting it can check for this with a hose, or try to push out on edges of windshield using your thumb and when windshield is loose, you can actually see it puch away from body..or just use a hose and a flashlight..this is your most likely solution....good luck!

Passenger floor gets sopping wet during rain or hosing

You may have a windshield that is leaking due to a small gap in the adhesive that glues the glass to the body. The water will trickle in behind the dash and it can be very difficult if not impossible to pipoint the excact source of the leak. If you can't find it yourself you may need to go to a windshield replacement facility and see if they can help you out. If it turns out that the windshield is leaking you may have to replace it as sometimes they can't be removed without being damaged due to how they are glued in place. Hope this helps out a bit!

Vibrating noise from the dash at higher speeds

I've experienced a rapid frequency vbibration that sounds like it comes from the front left dash. I isolated it as the small plastic molding on the outside of the windshield, just below the windshield. There is a small plastic strip like molding piece that ends near the end of the windshield. I used some double sided foam tape sandwiched between the bottom of the molding and the plastic piece belwo it and that solved the problem. I have had to replace the tape every year or so

Dash lights flashes on and off/ when going 40mph truck start jump

There was a bulletin awhile ago about water leaking onto the fuse box. Possible windshield needs to be resealed. Check the fuse box under the dash for any signs of corrosion.
