Asked by Dec 18, 2014 at 08:50 AM about the 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

snowing and felt like tires slipped then the charging system failure came on.

2 Answers


Could be the serpentine belt - Power steering, alternator (charging system) and water pump (temperature) are all powered by the belt. If the tensioner went the belt would slip and underpower all those components. Open the hood and see if there is any slack in the belt.
