problem #7

Aug 182016

Grand Am 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The car isn't actually mine, it's a friend's. She isn't very engine savvy and I myself am just beginning to go into detail in automotive repair. However, her problem was very extensive and certainly not normal. She claims she was pulling out of a parking space and that her A/C stopped working (I assumed it would be the compressor), her brakes got harder to push (presumably brake booster failure), and when she went to put it in drive, it wouldn't move at all (total transmission failure). So she says that she turned it off and started it again and it just worked. If I was just guessing on this issue, it would seem that she simply didn't have the car actually running, right? No power brakes, no drive, no A/C. All symptoms of a car that isn't running. But she swears it was. Now, it's not easy to diagnose because the problem isn't actually occurring right now. I can only make guesses. My guess is that it was electrical somehow. Some kind of Voodoo in the computer or something that caused all 3 of these to occur at once and then magically repair themselves. So if anyone knows a possible cause of these issues, I'd very much love an explanation of it and possible courses of action.

Grand Am GT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

One of many problems with the grand am. Although I feel bad for other people with this problem, I don't feel as crazy wondering why the fan does not work on 1 or 2.

Grand Am GT 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

First the AC/Heat would only work on max, then it slowly died all together. Fixing it was cost prohibitive as the value of the car was fairly low.

Grand Am GT 3200 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


Heater/AC blower motor/fan stopped working on settings one and two; worked for 3 and higher. Replaced the blower motor resistor. The resistor card that fits up into the air plenum was badly burned. Works fine. The resistor is located under the glove box compartment and next to the blower motor. It's a tight space and the two screws to the resistor are hard to reach. Other than the location and small space, a piece of cake.

Grand Am GT 3200 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,900 miles

Blower motor stopped working on blower settings one and two; only works on 3 and above. If you experienced the same problem with this car please email and tell me what caused the problem. I'm guessing it's a blower motor control module --- but just a guess right now.

Blower motor stopped working at all unless the dial is on the 3 or higher setting. Have heard from other owners that their car does the same thing. why was there no recall?
