It's usually near the receiver/dryer. That's the silver thing that looks like a tomato juice can with the ends rounded. Sometimes the receiver/dryer is wrapped, sometimes not. In any case, there should be a fitting that has a screw on dust cap. The 134A refrigerant for your vehicle comes with many options. You can get oil charge, UV Dye, colored dye, seal conditioner and generic-refrigerant-only. Unless you know of a specific need for any of the other options, just get the generic. Some of the cans even have a fitting and a gauge on them for convenience. Just be careful that you don't over-fill, otherwise you'll blow the seals out of the compressor, then you'll need a new compressor.

The 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan air conditioning recharge valve is located on the air conditioning compressor. The recharge valve will be labeled as such.

Yes, there is an air conditioning relay on the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. The air conditioning relay is located in the fuse box underneath the hood.

If it is a six cylinder the low pressure fill is on the passenger side near the firewall.
