I had this problem as well.It ended up being a loose wire on the starter which is where the dash cluster gets power from.I replaced the stater and tightened the wires and havent had any problem since.

Sounds to me like the wiring is bad. If you can get your head under the dash board and visually inspect the wiring for bald spots where the metal shows through the insulation you might be able to locate the trouble.

Sounds like the dealer is at fault here for not testing their work before saying the car was done. Maybe the ecu needs reflashing or reprogramming, IDK. I would take it back to them and show them. If they act like "dealers", get ready to complain.

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand am gt. The heater does not get as hot as it used to. I have checked all the fluids and replaced something with the fan switch as it only worked on 4 aqnd 5, but that did not...

From the fact that your temperature gauge never gets past 150 It sounds like you may have a thermostat that has failed and stuck in the "open" position. Try replacing the thermostat.

1999 Pontiac Grand AM 4DR. SE fuel gauge and other problems(help)

I have a 97 and an 00 Grand Prix and an 03 Pontiac Montana. The fuel gauge in all three vehicles don't work. The dealer here says it's a common problem in Colorado where I live. The government required additives in the gas cause corrosion problems with the fuel level sensor float linkage that sends the signal to the fuel gauge. The repair requires the removal of your fuel tank and replacement of the linkage and sensor. It would cost somewhere around $500. I've leared to reset my trip meter with every fill-up and watch the miles and check the fuel mileage with every fill-up to make sure I know when I'm about to run out.
