I have a 2002 Grand Am and am putting a second fuel pump in. I also have a problem with the electrical system and the ignition key. Does anyone know if there is an electrical recall, ignition or fuel pump recall going on? If not, how do you get one started. I spoke to some people that have pontiacs in general and they have similar problems: Car acellerates or slows down and then dies. I am desperate for an answer to this car riddle. My "trac off" light comes on right before my car dies, but the dealer has no clue what this means. Hence they try and fix everything else thats NOT broken as a means to find the problem.

I was wondering whether some of you can provide me with valuable advice. My GrandAm GT V6's meters (speedmeter etc.), they all jump from one side to the other even the motor itself is turned off -the key is just turned-. I have taken the car to a mechanic, he has taken a look at the fuse, also taken out the dash board etc., but, he cannot find the problem. He thinks it might be a mere miscontact but doesn't know where.
I'd be happy if you could help and I would really apprecite it.

Bug in 2001 Grand Am won't Start Car.
A bug in 2001 Pontiac Grand Am's causes them to simply not start, right out of the blue. Better hope you're not in the wrong neighborhood when it happens 'cause almost nobody knows what the fix is.
(PRWEB) February 21, 2005 -- If you own a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, you'd better hope you're not stuck somewhere bad when this hits: You go to start your car, and the engine cranks, but it seems like your out of gas, and won't start. Numbers of people then have the car towed to a shop, only to find that the car easily starts after being towed, but no cause is ever found.
The problem is that the RKE (remote keyless entry) system has a defect in it that causes car not to start. As of now there is no recall on the passlock systems. As for a fix, the experts are honestly not sure.
To reset the computerized system, put key in the ignition and leave it in 'On' position for about ten minutes. Then turn it off, and try - it should start then. Warning: continued resetting of the computer this way will eventually damage computer and will cost lots to replace/fix.
