Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Grand Prix

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


The key is stuck in the ignition on our 99 Grand Prix. Can turn the ignition forward but not backward into the original starting position to remove key. When turning key forward the engine does not turn on nor does anything with the battery work-radio, power lock, windows, seat, etc., no interior lights come on, and can't get the gear shift to move.

Giving the car to my daughter and have to fix all the problems first. Seems like there are hundreds of people having the same issue. You would think GM would step up to help, with a campaign fix. I'm going to try some of the fixes listed, starting with pulling the console and checking for loose or broken wires. If that wont fix it then I'll try the earplug trick under the steering column. I'll let you know how that works
