I had a similar problem...I had been doing some work with valve cover gaskets and had to remove the ground wire from the coil pack to the engine block..when I rechecked everything..the ground wire was loose, not visibly but when reconnected and made sure to tighten the nut back down..it started..hope its that simple for you!

I have a 2002 Grand Prix as well. I had the fuel pressure regulator replaced and haven't had any problems since then. My car started this way and unfortunately it lead to it just turning off at random. To have the work completed was 234.00. I hope this helps and saves you money in the long run.

I have had that same exact problem, My car would start, stall then stop at random. I did a complete tune up, everything included. Just recently I replaced the Fuel Pressure Regulator, which is located right in front of the engine. I have not had any problems since it was replaced. My car doesn't stall, stop or turn off any more. It was a total 0f $234 for the parts and labor. Hope this helps.

there's a rev limiter that kicks in right over 4k RPM.
When not in park, you can rev higher (i.e. when driving)

I HAVE A 98 GRAND PRIX GT which has no hazard flash. so i went to the car to find a fix for the lights, and i found 1 fuse in the glove box it turns out to be for the hazards. I put in that fuse and the whole car shuts down. i tried to restart it with the fuse in but no luck. I took out the fuse and left the car to sit for an hour. i came back to restart it and BAM it easily started. I pulled out drive and drove fast up/down street engine sounded great. Pulled back in my drive turned it off, and restarted it 5 times while warm with no trouble. I might buy new relays/battery.

Basically the gauges going crazy and stalling can be contributed to battery cables and/or pcm needing update. Good luck. I am going to try it.

#149 of 367 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix: Engine turns but won't start(has no spark)
Mar 26, 2009 (7:35 am)
About a month ago I went to start my 2001 Grand Prix and it wouldn't start. Tested for a spark and came up with nothing from the coil pack. I had the coils and the ignition module tested and they were all fine. I also replaced the ECM and the Crankshaft position sensor and it still won't start. Does anyone have any other ideas for me?
