#2062 of 2588 Re: 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Ignition Issue [spunk1965]
Jul 21, 2005 (2:27 pm)
It doesn't have anything to do with the remote starter. It's a security device in the ignition switch called a "pass lock sensor". About a 350.00 repair job. This is getting to be a issue for GM cars the size of the Grand AM. The trick to start the car of waiting 10 mins. to allow the error message to clear out works for a while.
But folks who have had the experience tell me that evently it will not. On the other hand I talked with a man the other night who has had 2 sensors replaced since Jan. and the darm car refused to start again the other night and the dealer says it's a defective sensor. So, good luck !!
#2063 of 2588 2003 Pontiac Grand Am keyless entry remotes
Jul 21, 2005 (2:38 pm)
Another issue with this great little car. Oh I miss my Ford. After I purchased it I found out it has keyless entry, but no remotes. I purchased a remote on ebay. I've found that may cars have a way to program the remote with out going to the expense of the dealer and his scan tool. Can anyone tell me if this car has a way
to do this proceedure ?.
#2064 of 2588 Strut problem
Jul 21, 2005 (6:09 pm)
OK, I'm not sure what the part is, but it cracked almost completely. I have a 95 Grand Am Sedan and on the front driver's side, right below the strut, there is a metal plate/piece that is broke almost completely in half. I cut my wheel to the right and heard 2 loud pops, and then my wheel was rubbing on the fender. I looked underneath and this metal piece (2 pieces on top of each other) was cracked. The tierod and strut brace/support looks to be connected to it. It also looks like the ABS cables run along it. Does anyone know what it is called?

Sounds like the lower control arm to me.
#2066 of 2588 03 Grand Am MALL PGM fuse ??
Jul 23, 2005 (3:47 pm)
I found a another entry for Pontiac Keyless Entry programing that the contributor
says will work for my 03. But I can't locate the Mall Pgm Fuse. I've checked all fuse boxes and the layout in the manual and there's not a list for this fuse. Can some one tell me where to find it. Please !!
Jul 23, 2005 (5:29 pm)
I'm just going to be honest. I know absolutely nothing about my car other than how to pump gas and change a tire. (tire if it's a good day:)) but i know that my vents spew this god awful smell whenever i turn the fan on. it smells like old cigarettes and mold. is there anything that i can do to make it go away besides using bottles of perfume spray?? PLEASE HELP!!!

Has anyone ever had any repetative problems with a 2003-05 grand am gts?
In other words, constant problems one after another.

There's no 05 Grand Am GT, 2004 was the last year for the Grand Am. At just under 20k miles on my 04 GT, my answer is no.
