It could be the icm, but most likely it's in the timming. Is your check engine light on? If so, go to someone has a code reader, they can pin point your problem.

1999 pontiac grand prix, just sputtered out...thought it was out of gas, but put gas in and it still won't start. it triess to turn over, but does not click and all lights/radio come on. what is it?

make sure the battery is fully charged,, if the alternator isn't working right , everything is run off the battery for a short time, and it will just die , the lights and other functions like the radio require little voltage to work, so try that first, if it turns over fast ,, then you need to check for fuel, if the pump is weak, it could be not enough pressure to keep the car running

Live in Saskatchewan, car froze. Tried boosting it, tried plugging it in overnight, put gas in it. Could be the fule pump, (fuel lines) but i dont know where these things are located on a 04 Pontiac Granm...

Get some gasline de-icer and put into the gas tank and leave it sit for awhile. Will the engine turn over? Put a trickle charge on the battery and make sure it is at full charge. If the battery is low it may be frozen. Take it inside . thaw it out then charge it on slow charge.

1994 grand am dies at stoplights

This sounds like issues with the electrical system, Needs to be tested, but your desctiption sounds like a battery type of issue. Charging system puts out enough at speed, but at idle, cannot overcome dead battery.

Charge the battery INDEPENDANTLY and FULLY. This takes 4 - 6 hours on a shop charger, longer on a home one. Then load test the battery...the results of that test tell you where to go next.

DO NOT JUST parts replace, too expensive..

1993 grand prix dying

provided you don't have a vacuum leak, (check all hoses for tightness and cracks with engine running) it's probably your idle air control valve or sensor.
