My 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr 4cyl automatic transmission is messing
up. When I open a door, bump in to it, turn it on or do anything that
involves electricity the car lights start flashing and clicking and if
I hadn't turned of my alarm horn it would beep sometimes. It will even
start flashing when I come to a stop light, and the engine is still
running. It does this every time!
My pass lock light on the dash is constantly FLASHING. This all
started happening a few months ago when I let my friend drive the car
and the battery just died, I replaced the battery is there anyway to
stop the flashing and clicking? It is driving me crazy. I have to turn
my headlights on during the day so people will not think I stole the
Is this my pass lock? I can start my car every time and the pass lock
light is FLASHING not staying on constantly. Can I expect my car to
stop starting any day? We tried to cut the yellow wire attached to the
ignition but it didn't do any thing because I can start it every time
so I doubt it is my ignition/ignition sensor.
Please help I don't have the money or want to spend it on a dealer
fixing it. I keep reading about installing a remote start to bypass
the pass lock but my car STARTS. What do I do?
I tried to "re-learn" my car, nothing changed. I left it in the "on"
position and the alarm light just kept blinking. I did the crank but
don't start, leave on for 10 min, turn off for two min and repeated it
3 times and still no change.
Just yesterday it started doing something new... it will unlock itself
at random...while I am driving when I'm parked and best yet I locked my
car with the remote than when I came out of the store I lifted the
door handle and it just unlocked itself! That will really keep a car
thief from taking it!!
I have been searching the web for months on this problem but all I can
find it problems with the passlock and ignition cylinder.
The previous owner as a genius when he decided to install an after
market alarm in the car when it already has a stock alarm. Could the
two alarms be "fighting over control"?
