#4310 of 4457 2004 grand prix - clearing codes
Mar 08, 2006 (11:36 pm)
Hi I have a 2004 pontiac grand prix gt, a couple days ago the engine light and "check gas cap" light came on, the cap was fine but I figured I would just replace it with a new one, its fine and sealed tight, how do I clear these codes off my screen and dash? Or do I have ot take it in to have it scanned and cleared, anybody know how, i have been told if i un-hook the battery it will work but will that effect the factory anti-theft system, any suggestions? Thx. tom

Our '03 GMC Yukon (other car) had "check engine" light come on. I tightened the gas cap with a few clicks even though it seemed tight. After several short trips (about 50 miles total), the light finally went off. Owner's manual also confirms the light does not immediately go off. In the meantime, I had made an appt. with the dealer thinking something else was wrong. They "cleared code and reset system" for $88. Seems odd to me that every time someone does not get the gas cap on tight, it will cost me $88 to clear/reset. Dealer says clear/reset is necessary in order to pass I & M (local computerized pollution testing required to renew car license).

Tom: this just happened to me today.
Symptom happened mid-way through a tank of gas, I stopped car, turned off, and tightened the cap (even though it was already tight).
Started the car again, "Check Gas Gap" light came on. Cleared it using the "Enter Key." But then came on again next time I started.
Long story short, took it into dealership, Service advisor knew of problem immediately -- grabbed the OBD code reader and cleared the codes. No issues. I'll let you know if anything else comes up.
ARe you all cleared up now?
#4313 of 4457 98 Grand Prix speakers?
Mar 23, 2006 (1:30 pm)
I just bought a 98 Grand prix from a dealership. I was wondering about the audio. The rear speakers are blown and I need to replace them. Any suggestions?
My real question is what does this car come with for speakers? In the back I have one 6x9 and one 3". Is that normal? The speakers are not stock but they look it. Should I replace both..or am I just robbing my power?
thanks a lot

Our '98 GT came new with 8 speakers ... 4 on the deck shelf and 2 up front in each door. If your GP has a stock graphic equalizer and steering wheel audio controls, then it has or had the 8 speaker system.
The rear speakers you describe sound stock to me. Ours look the same and sound pretty good for stock. You can probably find after market which are better and maybe cheaper too. Both sides should match however.

I own one of those. My dad bought it brand new, and then sold it to me a couple of years ago. It has about 112,000 miles on it. The only problems we've ever had were
1. The driver's side power window.
2. The EGR Valve
3. Just recently the rear passenger's side power window.
The motor in the driver's side power window had to be replaced.
The spring in the EGR valve has worn out and will not close the valve completely. This is not a real issue except that it keeps the engine warning light on constantly.
I'm not sure what's wrong with the rear passenger's side power window yet. The button works, I just have to pull up on the window to get it started. I'm thinking it might come out of track on its way down. It's only been going on for like a couple of weeks though.

A national newspaper is looking to interview consumers who have recently sold or traded a Malibu, LaCrosse, Monte Carlo, Cobalt or Grand Prix and was disappointed about its low residual value and has decided against buying another GM car because of it. Please send an e-mail to ctalatiedmunds.com no later than Friday May 5, 2006 by 2:00 PM PST/5:00 EST containing your daytime contact information and the car you sold or traded and the car your purchased next.

Talk about biased reporting!!! Why not call for owners' experiences when trading them instead of trying to select people with bad experiences and then ask whether they bought another GM or domestic brand? Only then could you call it reporting...
#4319 of 4457 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix -upholstery worn through
Apr 27, 2006 (8:14 pm)
Has anyone else run into this problem? The cloth (uglycloth) upholstery on my 2004 Grand Prix GT has completely worn through to the foam pad on the door side of the driver's seat side bolster. I had noticed the area was lighter from wear, but never thought it would wear through. This at 33 months and 44,000 miles. It looks like it is where my belt would rub on the bolster when getting into the car. I only weigh 170, so I am pretty average. I have never had this sort of problem with a car before. Anyone else have a similar problem with this cloth?
