Pontiac QuestionsRefine by vehicle
We replaced my battery when the old one was shot. Now my car will start and will run and drive. But when i shut it off and it beeps 3 times and the security on the dash flashes. In order to get into my car, i have to unlock it twice to turn the alarm off. Is there a reason why it flashes when i turn the car off. Dont know if it helps, I replaced both passenger doors because of a wreck.
I took my car in last November 15, 2015 after receiving several recall notices. I had experienced the power steering going out when I would pull in my drive way or slow to park. Now a year later, I'm having the same problem only worse. It took all the strength I had to keep from hitting a pole yesterday when I was trying to park. I called the dealership and Pontiac customer service. Both said I would have to pay $130.00 for diagnostic test and pay for whatever was wrong since the part was guaranteed for 1 yr. I missed it by 20 days. I was angry told them the original was defective and now the replacement appears to be defective. I got no help. Has anyone had this happen!
2006 Grand Prix GXP V8 5.3L Last winter and again this winter the gas pump clicks off non-stop while fueling my car. It doesn't matter if it's empty or half full. It takes forever to fill my tank in the winter. I have no problems with it in the summer. I have tried pulling the gas pump out a little, turning it side ways and upside down it doesn't matter.
OK, i recently bought a 1993 firebird V6 manual, it had sat for about 9 years. got it up and running, was running perfect. then one day about 2 months after i got it running and been driving it almost everyday. it wouldn't start, so i jumped it and it drove home fine. Then i drove it up to VA, (130ish miles away), but while driving it back, it started to kick, and the check engine light flashed every time it would kick, but when i took it out of gear it was fine. so i got it back home, thought it was the alternator, so i took it apart, but it looked fine so i took it to oriellys, they checked it and said it was fine, battery is new. so i thinking it may be a wire at the firewall. Please help! getting kind of frustrated!
Someone pulled 4,6 plug wire off without her knowing when it started it was missing bad she held it to the floor. Now it's flooding really bad and white smoke out the tail pipe and smells like raw gas. I change number 1 injection the plugs and oil didn't help getting gas in my oil now
How can I fix it myself
The car runs decent. Sometimes it act it has a slow ideal on take off. But if u turn the Ac or heat on it dies
even at snail creep speed at start/stop, when I brake, can feel impact of mass once then again before all momentum stops. What is this and is it repairable?
My heat and air only blows out whenever I am driving about 50. Even then it isn't very much air.
So I just had my the rod replaced and while driving my car the radio changes to am and now will not shut iff, even when the car is off. Any ideas?
Ok had a coolant leak and needed to get home. 200 mile drive now my motor is overheating. When it first started I lost heat. I know I need to drain the system and flush it the question is can I do this with a water hose so I don't have to tow it to a shop for the repair. It seems the leak is either from a hose on the right upper side of the motor or possibly from this white tube on top of the motor. Btw it's snowing outside. Thanks for any advice.
Wipers off track
installing a new mode actuator and wondering if the settings need to be set to the same settings as the old actuator?
I actually found the problem a few days ago. Bf put in in the shop, returned yesterday and he told me that it was a busted line. No more details than that. Today he called saying that it just isn't shifting right. Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated greatly!! Need help ASAP
I replaced the coil pack and wires and plugs. It runs worse than B4. I checked the wires and they're connected good; checked the gap on plugs which is between 50 n 60. the codes I get are PO300...random misfire. starts good but it soon slows down an runs rough.
What would cause my car not to start now.
Where us the fuse located for the lighter in the fuse box?
Also, the check engine light is on
My car was running great then it shuts off it did not run hot or anything it will turn over but will not start there is no water in the oil what could be the problem
Both visors have come loose and one finally fell off. The hardware is falling out of the ceiling. How can I fix this?
Was leaking and getting hot.
The car will start when primed but can't get any fuel without correct throttle cable hookup.
Can't find a picture anywhere.
I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire that want start. I have already installed 3 starters in my car and my car will run 2 to 3 days and then it want start again.
wired to stay on,but it keeps opver heating.when it does coolent starts pouring out.
My grand prix has an after market remote start. I lost the remote start so my dad wired a toggle switch strait from the battery to the starter. It worked at first. The next morning I started my car, drove about 10 miles then my car dies without warning. Won't crank at all. Figured something he installed got shorted so I tried to arc the starter with a screwdriver just to get it home and it starts smoking bad. I'm confused because the starter can't cause the car to die while driving it right? Please help.
First off, noticed a while back water soaks the floor boards front and back. Recently the heat quit working when idling. Blows luke warm air but when pressing down on the gas it then blows hot air. Now the car is overheating. Does it mainly when sitting still and idling. Normally cools down while driving. But also noticed it overheats if driving interstate at high speeds such as 70 or 80 but is okay when driving about 50 or 55. Noticed that after parked and car is turned off the fans will kick on. When we Opened up place to put antifreeze noticed it was nasty looking and was bubbling. I don't think it's circulating threw at all. Normally no lose of coolant but sometimes seems to have lost some. But haven't experienced any leaks at all. What cld all this be?
Wipers only start working once I give the blades a tug.
Switch or Motor causing the problem?
My car into a shop? How did my timing belt break? How often does a timing belt break? How long would it take to get fixed?
The driver side window is stuck in down position and won't come up when pressing on the switch.
Why isn't the drivers side door speaker working? The door chime, seat belt buzzer, and keys in ignition chime seem to be tied into the speaker and they aren't working. What could be the problem?
