Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

1 Answer

2002 pontiac grand am se 3.4L. I installed a new battery this morning. A wrench accidently fell onto the battery terminals and sparked when the wrench hit the pos and neg at the same time. Shortly after the spark, I pulled the negative terminal off and let it set for a few minutes (hoping this would help the electronics). Somewhere in the next 10 minutes, the car developed a misfire and is currently misfiring when I drive. Does anyone know what might have happened and what i could do to possibly fix the miring. thanks i owe ya one

What is the spark plug order for a 1999 Pontiac grand prix

I would recommend that you replace the plug wires at the same time because the boots usually break when you remove them and with the engine rotated forward they are easier to get at.
When re-installing the new plugs, it is important to make sure you get several turns on the plug before putting a wrench on it. The last thing you want to do is cross thread a spark plug. The new plugs should almost bottom out before requiring a wrench.

How do i remove the car battery from the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Hi. Please procedure below:

Find the 12-volt, side post battery on the driver's side, just behind the headlamp.

Remove the cables from the battery terminals with a battery terminal puller or socket wrench.

Lift the battery out of the compartment. Keep your gloves on at all times to avoid getting acid on your hands. Safely dispose of the battery at an auto parts store or a recycling center.

Use a wire brush to clean the surface that holds the battery. Clean the insides of the connector cables with a pointed wire brush.

Wipe the cables and the battery tray with a damp cloth and let them dry out. Use a rag that you can throw away since it will be covered with acid.

Place the new battery on the shelf. Place the correct cable on each terminal and tighten them securely with pliers or a socket wrench.

Is there a reset on the fuel pump 2002 pontiac grand prix

  • Pop open the hood of your Grand Prix and prop it open with the rod. Locate the battery under the hood and find the "-" symbol, indicating the negative battery terminal.

  • Find a bolt attached to the cable and loosen it with a wrench. Slide the cable off the terminal and take care not to touch it to anything -- especially to the positive side of the battery.
  • Wait 30 minutes for the electricity to drain out of the computer and to allow the computer to reset itself.
  • Put the cable back on the negative terminal and tighten the nut with a wrench. Lower the hood.
  • Put the key into the ignition and start the vehicle. Check the instrument panel to make sure all warning and service lights have turned off.
    If this does not work then locate the fuel pump fuse in dashboard and check all fuses to make sure they are not damaged or broken.

    I have a 1997 Grand Am 2.4 SE that won't start

    Check battery full charge, battery terminals are clean, cables aren't cracked, broken or corroded and alternator first.

    Which your having replaced your starter with new already. If you're still getting nothing it sounds like a bad ignition switch.

    They wear normally and need to be replaced. But as a helpful hint don't place excess keys or weighty trinkets on your ignition keys.

    They wear on the seating of the key in the ignition and often promote failure in the ignition from bearing the dangling weight.
