2005 Pontiac Grand Am Problems

No Start Due to Failed Passlock Sensor

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

"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.

High pressure power steering hoses can leak fluid

It is common for the high pressure power steering rubber hoses to leak. Our technicians recommend replacing leaky rubber hoses to prevent the loss of power steering.

2005 Pontiac Grand Am Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.

Weak Rear Suspension Bolts May Fail

Certain passenger vehicles were equipped with rear suspension knuckle bolts that are not up to specifications. These may fracture, causing the rear wheels to steer in or out, thus leading to an increased chance of an accident. The dealer will replace both of these bolts free of charge. The GM recall # is 05020

2005 Pontiac Grand Am Reviews

I have had my Grand am since 2005 its been a great car. in last 2 months I finally changed the brakes and water pump went this last week... Other than route oil changes and car washed and tires. I have never had a problem w my car.... I think today I have 140,000 miles It has been to Ohio and back FLL and back. gotta love your cars....
87,000 miles.4Dr. 4cyl. The heater/ac blower motor has a squeak that drives me nuts, on low speed. Just had both front wheel bearings replaced - I got a Direct Tire that is really honest and charged me $503 for both installed. They were going to do all brakes, but told me they are fine for now. I read online that is COMMON for wheel bearings to go on Grand Ams made in the late 1990's thru 2005....
