1999 Pontiac Grand Am Problems

Front Windows Come Off Track Due to Broken Sash Brackets

The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.

"No Start" Due to Ignition Switch Failure

The ignition switch may fail causing a no start condition. This is not generally a theft system (passlock) issue because the security light does not illuminate or flash.

Leaking Water Pump May Cause Coolant Loss and Overheating

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
