I have a 2002 pontiac grand prix doesn't blow any


    • 1 Start the engine of the car and allow it to run for a few minutes. Adjust the climate controls. If they do not feel right, then the problem is probably in the control panel. If the controls feel fine, but have no effect on the air then it is probably a blown fuse. If you cannot hear the accompanying blowing sound when the air is turned from low to high, then the problem is in the blower motor.
    • 2 Disconnect the black negative battery cable first when looking for the blower motor. Remove the trim panel and unplug the electrical connectors from the blower motor. Unscrew the retaining screws and remove the blower motor and fan.
    • 3 Check the control panel next. Disconnect the negative battery cable first. Remove the screws securing the cluster trim plate to the instrument panel and tilt the top of the cluster trim plate downward releasing the clips that mount the bottom of the trim plate to the dash.
    • 4 Remove the trim plate. Remove the screws attaching the accessory trim center plate to the dash. Tilt the top of the accessory trim plate downward releasing the clips that mount the bottom of the plate to the instrument panel.
    • 5 Use a screwdriver to unscrew the screws attaching the control assembly to the dash. Remove the control assembly from the dash. Disconnect the electrical connectors and remove the control assembly.
    • 6 Replace a blown fuse in your Grand Am easily. There are two interior fuse boxes in Grand Am, but the right fuse will be found on the passenger side. Open the door and pry off the side panel to the right of the dashboard. Use the guide on the inside of the panel to find the right fuse.

    Stupid question but how on earth do i take the panel surrounding the radio in a 98 pontiac grand prix?


    Take a screwdriver and gently begin at the top of the surround, its the plastic trim piece that covers 2/3 of the dash area. Find where the trim feels like its mounted to the dash and pry out at that point, follow this around the top from the drivers side to the radio area. There are some screws to take out also and they can be removed with a phillips head screwdriver. This trim piece is primarily held in with expanding clips so to keep from possibly breakage, pull on both sides of the clip you're disengaging. Good luck!

    How to hook up a kdc-105 kenwood in a sunfire


    There are 3 things you need to purchase for this install. 1) The factory spec install kit. 2) The factory spec additional wiring harness. 3) Antenna adapter.

    Find the easied way to remove the plastic cowling around the radio and ac controls. Usually you can locate screws helping to retain the plastic dash parts. Be careful not to break the plastic dash by taking your time and looking over and over the part ofr connection hardware. Once you have located and removed all/if any screws, carefully pry out on the piece you are removing. There are often metal clips on the back of the piece that also help to retain the dash. Once that is removed, unbolt/unclip the factory stereo and slowly pull it out of the dash. Remove the factory harness from the backside of the factory stereo. DO NOT CUT THE HARNESS!! The wiring harness you have purchased is designed to plug and play into the factory harness. All you hae to do is color match the Kenwoods harness with the one you purchased. When wiring the two harnesses together use connectors **** a **** connectors, crimp connectors so forth and so on. If there is wiring you will not be using, take some electrical tape and tape the bare wire. We don't want a short. Once you are sure and have doubled checked that all the wiring is secure and matched, reverse the order of disassembly.

    The plastic install kit should replace the factory radio size difference. Just remember to take the metal sleeve tha came with the kenwood and install it into the plastic install kit via the instructions provided. Slide the Aftermarket stereo into the sleeve you just installed. Then you are ready to make all the needed connections. Before you reassemble everything make sure to do a test run with your stereo. If all is well reassemble and jam on.

    Im trying to find where i can gt a complete guide on how to install a car stereo from color coding the wires to installing a dash kit


    1. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL ON YOUR BATTERY!
    2. For an old stock stereo, you may have to remove the dash or certain parts of it to access the stereo. Do that by locating screws and bolts and taking them off. Make sure to keep them in a safe place.
    3. For an aftermarket stereo, insert DIN tools into each slot on the stereo behind the faceplate. Slide the whole stereo out.
    4. Disconnect the antenna wiring (The wire with the big metal tip)and the stereo head unit wiring (wire harness).
    5. Reconnect the antenna into your new stereo.
    6. Use **** connectors and wire crimps to connect the stock wire harness with a car specific one that is sold seperately. The color of the wires on each harnass should match up.
    7. Reconnect the negative terminal on your battery and see if it works.
    8. Slide the stereo back into the dash and remount the dash that you removed, including screws and bolts.
    hope this will help you

    2002 pont. grand prix-Heater/AC Only works on High


    you need a new speed control resistor... this is something you will have to get from the dealer, but you should be able to replace it yourself - it is under the dash on the passenger side mounted near the bottom of the fan motor.. you will remove a couple of screws, and it will come out of the black casing it is mounted inside.
