With the flywheel spinning at about 1,000 RPM at idle, the starter, if engaged with the flywheel, would be forced to spin between 15,000 and 20,000 RPM. Once the engine has turned over and is running, the overrun clutch will release the starter from the flywheel and prevent the gears from re-meshing (as in an accidental turning of the ignition key) while the engine is running
That would depend on the total watt rating of all the bulbs in the tail lights.
Fuel filter may be clogging up enough to not provide enough gasoline to keep the engine running, but will accumulate enough gasoline in it to re-start the vehicle.
Check the plug-in for the trailer lights, if it has one. If not, check the Headlight switch. It probably has a burnt wire.
I hope you did not remove a battery post while the engine was running (don't do it)? If so, it may cause damage to your alternator, and it will short out your ignition in the engine (engine stops). If there is no damage, it should work after reconnecting the battery posts. If you didn't do the above situation, I would check for a loose connection on the terminal or a corroded/broken cable. I hope you did not remove a cable from the positive or negative battery posts while the engine was running (don't do it)?

light sensitive sells
There is a fuse for these lights. I would highly recommend not doing this as it is illegal.
Check the daytime running lights module. This item was defective in some vehicles in the early 90's, and when it failed the result was lights that would not turn off or they would be very dim when the vehicle was running. You can check for recalls at the dealer.
If it's doing this while the vehicle is running, it would be because the daytime running light system of the Grand Am included the instrument panel lights. Prior to the daylight sensor becoming standard, on some GM products, only the headlights were part of the daytime running lights system, while on others, it included all the lights.
the daytime running lites go out when you put the trans in park. they also go out when you depress the parking brake. i would start looking there.
If the headlight that runs through the modulator first is out then the daytime running lights won't work. Change the bulb and the daytime lights should then work.
It depends on where the vehicle was sold when new. In Canada it would have them, in most of the USA, no.
Most likely no. The only ones with drl, would have been from Canada.
faulty drl module Check the fuse.The fuse may be blown
check fuse for the running light module.
No. The power to illuminate the Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) is supplied by the alternator, and does not have to be supplied by the battery. Once a vehicle is started and the engine is running you could remove the battery from the car entirely and everything requiring current would still operate.
there is a number of things that could cause this. here are a few easy ones to check. is the e-brake fully disengaged. are the bulbs burnt out. is the wiring harness plugged into the daytime lights bulbs and in good condition. if these check out, you may have a fault in the daytime running light module.
