How do you fix the abs light on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix?
The ABS light comes on when there is a problem in the system. Bad sensor, pump, etc. As far as I know the ABS uses it's own computer and is difficult or impossible (in most cases) to pull codes from to find out what the exact problem is. About the only option you have is to take it to a shop to have it put on a scanner. That or start replacing parts at random. It should be fixed as soon as you can, however, when the ABS stops working you WILL NOT lose your brakes. It simply operates like a pre-ABS system.

Answer First of all, I'm sorry the previous person had the nerve to call you a "moron" and not even spell the insult correctly, how ironic. Obviously this person is not… the owner of a 2004 grand prix or does not even know how to operate their own. Before re-setting the tire pressure, make sure you have corrected the problem causing the warning. The warning message appears if the pressure in one tire becomes 12 psi lower than the other three tires. Your car will "learn" the pressure at each tire every time you reset the system. This takes 45-90 minutes of driving per the operating manual. This does not have to be accumulated in one single trip either. To reset the tire pressure monitor system, after correcting the problem, you have to use the options under the Driver Information Center (DIC) on your dash. The button you want to utilize is called the "set/reset" button, it is the third button from the left, directly in the middle of all the buttons. It has an arrow that points to the left. Press and hold the button until the DIC displays "Tire Inflation Has Been Set", this message confirms the tire pressure system has been reset. If, by chance, the DIC does not return to the standard display with the date, ect., you can press the "options" button to get back to the standard display. The "options" button is directly to the right of the "set/reset" button you just got done using. It has a lower case "i" on it. I hope this answer helps you, and good luck!!!
There are two screws on the top underside that you must take out. then the bulb is attached to a wire and you can pull it down about an inch to help pull out the bulb. p…ut in the new bulb and screw the screws back in and youre all set. -richard (I found this answer really useful so I paste it here)

If your fan control speed #1 stops working and then #2 stops working I believe it is the blower motor modual it is sometimes called blower motor resistor block.It is behind th…e fan motor , up under the passenger side of the dash and against the firewall. If you are looking underneath the dash, you will see a little black box in the position I described. It is being held in by 3 or 4 gold hex screws that are (I believe) .25'. Its not the fan motor control switch ....return that $165.00 part .....the blower motor modual is about $25 if you get it wholesale. These parts are usually not in stock and have to be imported from the Czech Republic, so order early.
I have a Pontiac grand prix 1998 and the abs and tcs warning light has gone on what could the problem be?
Answer Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem My answer: It is most likely a bad wheel bearing. Front is tricky to replace, rear is …not so bad. If you go to AutoZone they can scan it for you, but you will get an answer you will probably already know.
There may be an access door under the carpet in the trunk that will bring you right to the top of the fuel tank.
just do it yourself...takes about 7 mins no joke. all you have to do is remove the t-stat housing and its right in there. you have 4 bolts to take off (max)
I have an 04 Grand Prix and I average around 22-24 mpg city, and as much as 31 mpg highway.
i broke down and paid to have this fixed. My mechanic said this is a fairly common problem on the older grand prixs. He had to replace the relay as well as the blower motor, …total cost was $400.
You will have to replace the regulator assembly.
I have a 1997 GTP and my shift lock went out. I fixed it. I pulled off the plastic shroud by my shifter. If just snaps on. I then took a rubber bumper ( thinks thick washer bu…t made of rubber) and cut it so it would open like the letter C. Then i used a big standard screw driver to open the shift lock solenoid and I jammed that bumper in there so it can not close. Was a very cheep fix. Better than the 300 bucks GM wanted. And it has lasted over a year now.
Answer Hello, I am working on this problem w/2002 GP. This is why I found your question. It is a digital display for clock/radio station display that… fuctions but does not light up. Wiring diagrams are pointing me towards replacing the dash light switch module which feeds the radio. I am still investigating. Is my problem discrtiptive of yours? Bmac498@comcast.net
Answer If the trouble is the speedometer itself, you can't; but it could be the sending unit and that can be replaced fairly easily. If you remove the right fron…t wheel and move the skirt it can be seen on top of the transaxle extension. If your speedometer AND odometer have ceased to work this is the culprit but if the odometer works accurately but not the speedometer you need another instrument cluster to get a new speedometer.
Answer 1 This is an indicator that there is something wrong with your ABS sytem and it is not operational. These systems are a safety device and should be repaired by e…xperienced professionals. Please have your system looked at by a professional and perform the necessary repairs. Hope this helps. "G"
The ABS light on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am can be reset by connecting an OBDII code reader to the vehicle's computer. It can reset all codes and determine their cause.
