#2558 of 2588 Nothing But Problems?? HEAT
Jan 08, 2009 (9:16 pm)
I got my first car which is a 2001 pontiac grand am se1. I seen the car and fell in love with it. Since, i didn't know all the problems that occur with these cars i bought it. I got the car for $2000. Boy, i thought i got a deal on my dream car....NOT....it is a pain in my but. i have spent about as much fixing the car as i did on the car..new fuel kit, fuel pump regulator, fuse block, igniton, a bunch of problems with my HEATER and it is the dead of winter, cold as heck and my heat wont work..I have fallen in love with this site because i found out other people have the same problems as me. I thought i was the only one. I have been so down about the new thing with my car which is the heat problem. we replaced the regulator for the heat and ac. but it still WONT BLOW...when i hit bumps it seems to make a connection...i had my dash torn apart twice and the wires cleaned too. the heater still wont work like when i bought it. I will never buy another pontiac grand am again...someone please give me some ADVICE on what to do with the heat.

Do you mean the fan doesn't blow, or it does but the air coming out is cold?

well i had the computer chip replaced that tells the heater to heat up and the ac to get cold and the fan to blow and so on but the fan just won't blow....when im driving the outside air pushes some heat in but just enough to heat up the windshield so i can see the fan will not blow in other words. Im having that replaced on monday. then if it still doesn't work...idk what i will do with the car,

'95 Pontiac Grand Am SE.
Not Working: Turn Signals, High Beams, Emergency Lights, Left & Right Brake Lights.
Working: Center Brake light, Low Beams, High Beams (momentary), Running Lights.
My solution: Remove Turn Signal Switch Assembly and stest to see if switch positions correlate to new circuit patterns with Digital multimeter, continuity tester.
If good, then clean contacts and put old switch back in.
If bad, then replace switch.
Note: simply unplugging and plugging switch assembly back in may solve all or part of the problem. It worked for me. All but the emergency flashers work for me now.
There are 10 types of people in the world; those that understand binary and those that don't.

I have a 2001 Pont Grand SE1 and have done everthing I know to get the lockout on my radio off. I have tried letting the ignition on for an hour or so and pushing buttons 2 and 3 I also tried it again pushing buttons 1 and 4 and the lockout still stays on the radio.. I even unhooked the batt and tried it that way too.. Was told I need to take it to a dealer.. One thing I will say about GM thanks for such a stupid Idea.. so I called GM and guess what I have to pay for thier stpidity. Any way is there a way to bypass the anti lock on my radio so I can listen to music again
If any one knows a way I am open to any idea.
HAVING LOTS OF PROBLEMS.......

Could be trans fluid or coolant by the color. Here's the $1,000,000 question: what fluid level is low?
At first by looking at your pictures I thought it was coolant (old Dexcool that should have been changed) but on second thought it could be warmed up trans fluid also. Checking the fluid levels will tell the story for sure though with that big of a leak.
As a general warning, quad 4 engines were notorious for having water pump leaks around that mileage, and your pictures are showing a drain off exactly where it would be for that. If that's the case, get ready for a big repair bill, quad 4 water pumps are a big job.

Cousin thinks its Coolant because the fluid on the garage floor evaporated overnight. He said if it were trans fluid, there would still be a puddle. I look at the coolant tank and it was low. Just trying to figure out wear the leak could be because it has not leaked at all today. Even when driving for 15 mins. strange. But thanks for the quick reply.
