Pontiac made the Firebird car. Pontiac started making the Firebird in 1967, and the latest model was produced in 2002.
Not that is not true. They used gold Pontiac Firebird Esprits. Started with 76 models then went to 78 models. They never used the 79 model. Three cars were used each season. They all had Firebird Formula engines but were all Esprits.
the fan relay sensor is out of it.
pontiac first started out in 1926
***I AM NO MECHANIC***, but I am the owner of a 1998 Pontiac Firebird myself, and this is what I might speculate: It sounds like a possible dead battery which- if not caught/determined quickly enough -may have inadvertently killed the alternator. That or the third possibility is a dead starter motor (about $400 shop repair). WHAT I MIGHT SUGGEST/THE CHEAPEST THING TO TRY: Cleaning off the battery terminals with a brush. Disconnect the negative & positive cables, looking for white powdery corrosion. Sometimes corrosion will keep the battery from kick starting the engine.
I would start with the the fan relay swith... swap it with another. It could be stuck in the open position. Try removing it and then starting.
You may want to check the fuel filter. these cars also have a fuel pump relay, I have the same problem with my car. have you gotten yours fixed yet? I'm just getting started on mine.
Yes, as long as the engine is running, so is the alternator. The alternator is actually what keeps the car battery charged.
Defective alternator or broken alternator belt.
A faulty alternator will cause those symptoms. You might want to get t checked out.
If the alternator is working properly then it should go off onec the engine has started. If it does not then you probably have afaulty alternator.
Have you checked the computer codes? If so, what do they say?
If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is good. If it stalls and dies as soon as you unhook the battery then the alternator is not good.If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is good.

This happens to me also in my 1996 Firebird. However, this didn't always happen until my driver side headlight motor (gear) started grinding - it needs to be changed. Are you having any abnormal sounds when you put your lights down? If so check into replacing the gears. http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm
Grab some tools and get started if its anythinh like a gmc Jim good luck lol tention for serp belt is a pain in the butt..alternator has to come out too your an idiot, this says nothing on how to change it.
your alternator is bad
If your battery was dead and you jumped it to get it started and the gauge shows your not charging you need to replace the alternator.
The battery will be Damaged. Possible damage to the Started Relay. Also check the alternator, more specifically the voltage regulator circuit which is built into the alternator.

Pontiac made the GTO. And no it was not started in 1968 as stated above lol.
bad battery, and bad alternator not keeping it charged - also bad connections to the battery or loose wire connections on the alternator.
Pontiac started it's business in the early 1900's and have come out with multiple models of several different cars. Some of these early models include the Pontiac Fiero, and the Pontiac Grand Am. The Pontiac Tempest, and the Pontiac GTO are also good examples.
The positive cable between the alternator and the battery has an open circuit or break. There also is a set of wires that plug into the alternator that turns it on when the car is running. Wiring problems here can cause a alternator not to charge on the vehicle but works fine on a test stand. Some cars the alternator light in the dash causes the alternator to kick in when the engine is started. A burned out light in the dash causes the alternator not to charge.
It changed becuz it became bigger with more people
Your alternator is not charging the battery like it's suppossed to or the battery cables might be corroded and may need to be changed or cleaned, but the good news is autozone can recharge your new battery back up for free. Also make sure after you change the alternator and clean the battery cables and put the battery back in have the guy at auto zone test the new alternator before you buy it to make sure it works properly.
