Bought this car about 4 yrs ago and have had to replace the blower for the heater twice and warranty wouldn't cover either time. It is now working intermittently again. I am not fixing this problem again, The worst part of it not working is when it snows a lot here and I have to try to break the ice on my windshield. It just seems silly to me to have to replace a car because the warming ability of it can't be relied on.

The only 3 other problems with this car which was the water pump needing to be replaced, transmission fluid leak, and coolant leak. I'm not good with cars and I can't afford to keep dealing with this problem. Sad really, I had for 7 yrs. a 2005 Sunfire before I had this car and I never had any problems with it. That's why I thought Pontiac made good cars, guess not.

This is the third time in three years (i have only owned the car for almost 4 years now) that the blower motor went out. This time I was under the one year part warranty but over the mileage. The dealership that repaired it both times prior will not do anything for me. So I started a search to see if this is a common issue with my car type before I file a BBC on the dealership that fixed it. Has anyone had this issue?

On top of having this repaired at $600.00, now 6 months later the control module for the heater/AC needs to be replaced at another $280.00. What is next? This car is nickel and dime-ing me to death. I am going to junk this car and NEVER drive another Grand Prix again.

Grand Prix GTP

  • Automatic transmission

I HAVE A 2004 GTP. I'VE HAD ABOUT 2 YEARS. THE FAN ALWAYS SEEMED VERY WEAK. THE ONLY VENT THAT HAD REAL FORCE WAS THE CENTER VENT. NOT SURE IF THATS NORMAL. RECENTLY THE FAN STOPPED MOVING AIR COMPLETELY. A FEW DAYS LATER IT WORKED AGAIN, THE NEXT DAY I SMELLED A BURNT ELECTRIC SMELL COMING FROM THE VENT, THEN IT STOPPED A LITTLE LATER. IT HAS COME ON A FEW TIMES SINCE THEN BUT VERY BRIEFLY. A MECHANIC LOOKED AT IT AND SAID THAT IT WAS THE BLOWER MOTOR CONTROL MODULE AND WOULD COST $300 TO FIX. I WANT TO FIX IT MYSELF.

IS WHAT HE SAID CORRECT THAT ITS THE MODULE? WHERE IS THAT LOCATED AND WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? WHERE CAN I GET THE PART?

Grand Prix GTP

  • 60,000 miles

The blower motor (a/c) shorted out. The mechanic informed us that it was a good thing the fuse blew or the car would have caught on fire. My finance was leaving work when this happened and thankfully not driving down the highway. I find it extremely hard to believe that a 2004 car is already having a/c problems, of course the warranty expired 10,000 miles ago. What a crock of sh*t!
