My sons 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix shuts down when he is driving.
My sons 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix shuts down when he is driving. He is able to restart the
car and drive again but this keep happening more frequently. I have seen info on the net
about the GTP and a fuel resistor but I dont know if that applies to the GT
one of the relays responsible for keepin' you running....we'll start with the fuel pump relay~ https://www.google.com/#q=1998+Pontiac+Grand+Prix+fuel+pump+relay&tb m=shop
and you DO have an ignition relay~ http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sku/Pontiac/Grand_Prix/AC_Delco/R elay/1998/ACD1741C.html? apwcid=productads&003=27846857&010=apwACD1741C1998pogrprre &gclid=CPahsfScuroCFY0-MgodU2UAMg
see if either of these smell burnt~
The ignition relay smells fine but the fuel relay seems to have a bit of a burnt electrical smell to it. Should the car still run when the fuel relay is removed?
Because it does...
perhaps you've plucked the wrong relay~
the fuel pump will STOP DEAD once the relay is not juicin' the goose~
ok, I will try again once I get home.. My son has been using the wife's can in the meantime. yikes...
tphillips2735 did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix and it is doing the same thing.
