I thought I had the same problem with my grand am, and it turned out that I needed to go to the dealer and have the transmission fluid flushed, and changed. It seem this is not someone a car owner can do unless they have a way to pick the front end up to let the ait out of it. I had to do it around 80,000 miles
I just had this problem with my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am. The problem is a short in the "multi-function switch." When I took it to get fixed, they told me that a lot of Pontiac Grand Ams have had this problem, and mine was fixed through warranty. If that is not the problem with your car, check the "signal flasher relay." Hope I helped!
take it to dealership
The Optispark distributor is notorious for causing this problem.
Your Pontiac has a problem in the electronic block, which is controlling the turn signals, the tail and brake lights and etc. It shouldn't be a big deal.
Could be a bad flasher
The light is flashing because there is a problem. The problem will need to be diagnosed and repaired to stop the flashing.
You can do it with a scanner. Usually when the security light is flashing it means there is a problem with the passlock system. Dealer item and about $500.00-$700.00 to replace parts & reprogram.
security lock out had same problem with our 2004 grand am
Yes. When your GM security system activates, it disables fuel delivery to prevent startup.
To bypass the security pull the fuse. For the other issues there may be a problem with the computer in the car.
turn the key to the on position without starting the vehicle and leave for ten minutes until the security light stops flashing. then turn key to off and back to on and start vehicle. if problem persists you may need a new ignition switch
your distributor is not set right. its probably in backwards by 180 degrese
I've had a problem with my O2 sensor and air filter causing my 1998 firebird to misfire.
i also have Pontiac grand am, mine is a 2001. The pass lock sensor sets off the security light which cuts off gas to the engine, which is a theft deturent. My problem was fixed when i got a new stereo and the one thing that was replaced was my chime module, so we think mine was a electrical problem. But get your pass lock sensor looked at because that is what controls the security light.
Mine is doing the same thing.. I have to leave the key on position for exatually 10. mintues. turn key off when security light has disapeared. Then try to start and it as worked every time. (So Far). I want to know what is causing this problem? I had my Pontiac grand am for three years. Just the last 6 months it been doing this. But happening more and more
The pass lock system has a problem. A lot of people replace fuel pumps thinking that its the problem when the security is the real culprit all along. It's off to the GM dealership as they need to repair the security system (probably lock cylinder & module) and then they have to reprogram the computer to accept the new parts. This is only dealer specific hardware/software that can do this. Approx. $400.00 - $600.00.
When the hold light is flashing, it means there is a problem with the transmission system. The problem can be various things including the transmission is locked in a gear and can be caused by overheating or a speed sensor problem.
if the radio is not working in a 2007 Pontiac g6 sdn what is the problem
try checking your cabin air filters located inside glovebox. mine were full of leaves causing the same problem.
No a fuse cannot cause this situation either a transmitter problem or another keyless security issue.
You have a problem with the memory card.
The problem carbon-dioxide is causing is pollution and green house gases.
You probably have a broken wire in the ignition lock on the steering wheel. I had the EXACT same problem. Wire wears and eventually breaks from being turned over.
The check engine light is flashing due to a problem with the emission system. I flashing check engine light usually indicates a random engine misfire.
These transmission are rear wheel drive 4 speed automatics, that are all computer controlled. Common reasons for the overdrive light flashing are the external sensors on the vehicle like the throttle position sensor or vehicle speed sensor quite often go bad, causing these symptoms. Always run a scanner first to see if a sensor is causing your problem.
