1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Problems

Ignition Key Stuck Due to Failed Shifter

The automatic transmission shifter may fail, or a wire may break near the shifter causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.

Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Failure May Cause Erratic Shifting

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Power Window Motor and Switches May Fail

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or switch. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the exact cause.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Reviews

My first car at 17 and i loved it, no major problems at all it drove very nicely and smooth. Very Reliable and safe. i love my pontiac
I have had the car for almost 2 years and some problems i have had included intake gasket needed replaced and the windows are bound to fail in my case multiple times. I don't see how there has not been a recall. Other than that it has been good even with 142000 miles.
had major problems ever since i got this car. electric windows on drivers and passenger front sides didn't work very well; had engine problems as well. glad to be rid of it
