I have a 2006 gxp. Had front pads/rotors replaced at 33k and had checked today at 56k. They tell me both sets need changed. I said bs and asked how much to just change all 4 pads. Total: about $550; just for pads!!!!!!
Can you tell me the name of the company in California you got aftermarket rotors/pads and contact info. Also, if you dont mind, what it cost you.

fyi. I'm not the one who purchased rotors or pads in Cal. I have a 92 GTP that I can not make a "panic stop" with.
#81 of 88 2004 GP GT ABS brakes engaging when slowing down
Dec 10, 2008 (6:14 am)
I have a 2004 GP GT and recently it started to engage the ABS brakes everytime i come to a slow speed. Sometimes I barely get it to stop because brakes won't stop sputtering and slipping. Every once in awhile the "ABS Brake Enaged" light comes on when stopping. I was wondering if this is a electrical problem or something else?

Could be your speed sensor wiring harness. It's getting a bad reading and thinks you're in a slid or spin. Parts and labor about $260.

Getting ready to replace wheel hubs and brakes on my 05 GTP. Are there issues I should be aware of, ie: pressurized system, etc. before I start this process? Don't have a service manual for reference but would appreciate any suggestions.

I know that its been years since this thread was posted but i bought a 2005 grand prix bout a year in a half ago. It has 135,600 miles on it and drives ok from time to time. I always had an issue with it turning over and starting which never got fixed and a problem with my transmission slipping. After taking the car to the shop after a year of having it more problems came. I had a leak in my transmission that i got fixed and began to to put Lucas in there which actually helped my transmission change gears better. Now the problem is not the trans. After getting a tune up my car won't pick up speed, rpm goes crazy, even when i don't touch the gas it goes high, and if i press on gas pedal it stalls like it doesn't want to pick up speed. Now my wheel shakes at about 55mph, sometimes it does this and somtimes it don't. And after doing research just found out they have a recall on steering. IM a female and don't know too much about cars but i do try to keep the maintenance up on it, which has kinda helped me out. I know my car could drive better and want to know if anyone else r having these problems. Btw i changed the map sensor and did tune up what do u think. Is my car fine or do i need more work done

#88 of 88 ABS and Traction Control Lights Brakes kaput!
Jul 30, 2013 (1:31 pm)
2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. I truly hope there is someone out there that can help us. We recently had a problem with the ABS and Traction Control going off and the warning lights coming on in the dashboard.
We have changed the front end hubs, rotors and installed ceramic brakes. The dealer (Condie Automotive, Kingston, Ontario, Canada) we bought the car from last year is being most unhelpful. The car seemed to be okay after we changed the above, however now I'm getting a weird sound when I brake and the brakes are stuttering until the ABS and Traction shut off. When I make a sharp right turn, the ABS and Traction control shut off and the warning lights go on.
It is very frightening and I am worried that when the abs and traction are on, I lose brakes and get the stuttering and loss of brakes.
Any help or similar experiences with a resolution would be great.
