#157 of 228 Rear speakers dont work
Jul 26, 2009 (3:20 pm)
I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1L. I prev dealt with that annoying water leaking in thru the pass side issue, I corrected it but now I have an issue with my rear speakers. It seems that they are off, whenever i park my car in the sun and it gets hot inside, the speakers work fine but as soon as it cools inside they shut off. Originally I thought it was the stock stereo because it sometimes didnt show the clock when i turned it on (happen once in a while) but after I Replaced the stereo the speakers still act the same way. I never dealt with audio issues before and not sure how to trouble shoot it. Any Ideas,or has anyone had this issue before?

My high beams work fine, just the low beams are out, anyone have this issue? the fuses for the lowbeams are ok, so are the high beams. they both have 2 fuses, left and right lamps.Is there a different one or a micros relay or something?

I'm having the same problem with my lowbeams, what did you do to fix yours?
#161 of 228 low beam fix...kind of
Sep 16, 2009 (8:21 pm)
well, I took it to the local auto parts stores, that was like talking to a McDonald's drive thru person, then I talked to a mechanic who also offered no good results, so I eventually talked to the local Pontiac dealer. We removed the fuses for the low-beams and swapped it for another fuse of the same amps...did not fix it either. THen the next day, they started working miraculously. So I really don't know what fixed them, they just work now. I fully expect them to go off every time I drive at night.
I suggest swapping fuses out. See if it helps. No real clue here.

Well ' I will presume that you have daylight running light's; therefore if it is not a fuse as you indicated then, it has to do with the module that controls your daylight running lights. The dealer's part's or service department may have a trouble shooting sheet / guide that will have you use a 12 volt test light to find your problem area. Or if this dealer can not help then go to the library and look in the automotive section for a Mitchell Repair Manual and go to the Electrical section.... this will guide you... best of luck and hope that this helped....

It is caused by a short in the fuse box. My mechanic had to bypass the fuse box to get the lights to work, or I had the option of replacing the fuse box for $400.
#164 of 228 Daytime running lights or parking lights
Oct 06, 2009 (9:50 am)
This problem started last weekend. When I turn off my 2006 grand prix the lights stay on and the message center displays "parking lights on" i also found out the other day that when I put the key into the Accessory position the lights come on also. Message center displays same thing. The lights will eventually go off, after 5 mins or so. Any ideas.
thank you this is my first post.

I have a 2001 Grand Prix sedan, and the EXACT thing has been happening to me for a few months now, every now and then, and usualy a few times in a row when it does happen. Have you figured anything out yet>
EDIT: This being the entire electrical system shuts off.

I have a 2001 grand prix and mine just started doing that! My service engine light and abs doesn't flash but my message center and fan for my heater/ac will shut off.
I was wondering if you have figured out what makes it do that? It's completly got my mechanic stumped as well!
