This may sound like it is not important, but check this out. Have you checked the connections on the battery. There are 2 contact discs that touch together on the positive + side of the battery. I was having a problem with my pontiac quiting and the bells would ring, the radio would stop and then the car would start back up and run for awhile and do the same thing again. Take the positive side connections loose and clean them with baking soda. Spray the discs with WD40 and wipe off and install them back and make sure they are tight. What happens is they will get some corrosion in between the discs. They may look fine but they will not make a good contact when you try to start and run your engine. Hope by chance this may help anyone who is having the symtoms described described above. D.T.
#828 of 980 2002 Grand Prix won't shift into park

I can't shift the car into park. It seems as if the shifter can't go any further forward than reverse. I can take the key out while in reverse. the shifter will also lock in this position. I have to use the shifter lock release to get the car out of reverse so I can put it in neutral so the backup lights don't stay on. Any clues?

I am also experiencing this problem too. It started for me on July 2nd. I could not put my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT into park; it was stuck in reverse. I had to put it in neutral and put the emergency brake on. My key was stuck in the ignition. I could not get into the trunk until I got home and used my spare key to open the trunk. I took my car to my usual mechanic. We could make the gear get not go into park. THen it went into park and got stuck there. My mechanic thinks it may be a solenoind that needs replacing. However, the mechanic was unable to replicate it again once it was in the shop on Friday. I picked it up today and am driving it for another 2 days to see if it comes up again. Have you got any further information? I recently had a problem with my key not turning all the way to the position to get the key out of ignition after turning off the engine. That went on for 3 months. I finally had the key lock indicator replaced and that did the trick. But now, the not being able to put the car in park problem has creeped up.

Vent air starting to smell rather stale. Mouse is unbalancing the fan. How to block the air intake? How to access the fan? Any use in replacing the heater core when there?
