You may have an intermittent switch or possibly a shorted or broken wire. As for the radio, I'd yank it and put an after market deck in. GM radios aren't known for their quality. But, you could check the back of the radio to see if the antenna lead is plugged in securely.
Hope this helps.

If you have any extra fuses, try replacing the ones for the head lights and tail lights. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same color as the ones you replace them with, that way the voltages are the same. Another issue is that a flasher could be going out.

I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

Got my stereo stolen out of my 2005 Grand Am, and now neither my turn signals or my hazard lights work. I looked for torn or pulled out wires, but the only four that were loose were all attached to a unit...


The only thing that should not be working would be the audible turn signal / hazard signal sound. When the turn signals are activated, the audio (radio) system generates a clicking sound that indicates the signals are working.
When the radio is missing, no sound is generated.
Are your turn signals working outside, but no sound or are the signals not working at all.
Let me know.
Regards,

99 Grand Am Turn Signal Relay Actuates By Itself


This is a fairly common problem, to correct it you need to replace your flasher unit ($30) it is located directly behind the hazard light button on the dash.

My 2000 grand am anti theft radio is locked and I need help unlocking it


This solution is for a 1999 Grand Am SE am/fm radio with tape cassette player:
Ido not know if this works for other Grand Am products past or prior 1999.
If the lcd display of the radio indicates "LOC" if you do not see anything on the display the small light behind the display is out and you need electronics to go further. If LOC appears here is what to do:
First put the ignition key to the ACC position.
2- press the HR clock adjust button once only ; the display should read 000
3-push the HR button successively until you reach 17 on the radio displayffd4cd1.jpg 4-then press on the MN (minutes) button again until you reach the number 42
5-when the number 1742 appears on the display, press on the AM/FM button once and after on the POWER/VOL button to power up the radio.
