I'm assuming you mean the "Change Oil" light reset switch. It is located inside the fuse panel on the driver side of the dash. With the door open, remove the side panel of the dash and the switch is a red button. Turn the key to "On", hold the button in. The light will flash several times and then y…ou will hear beeps, release the button. The light will stay off until it decides you need to change oil again. There is a very easy way to solve this. Just pust your key in and turn it to the on position. Then, pump the gas four times and the change oil light will reset. ^^^ not really sure if you're supposed to do that. The button works just fine. And the light just automatically comes on after 3000 miles (maybe even something like 2900... I've never counted but it seems like it comes on well before you really need to get the oil changed.) You don't need to hurry out and get an oil change just because the light comes on. : Specific to 99 Grand Am~ would guess it includes other models. STEPS TO TAKE: 1. TURN key on, wait till dinging stops so you can focus 2. PRESS red button in fuse panel once. (VERIFY change oil light starts blinking) 3. PRESS and HOLD same reset button a second time... UNTIL (VERIFY that door chimes sound ) ... door chimes quit and the Change oil light turns off in front of you. 4. TURN off ignition and restart the car at your convenience. ;o) NOTE... I am saying the same thing as all the other s and comments... I just added extreme clarity to the steps and expectations. . Clarity is number one! (MORE)
Answer . It is inline so trace the line from the tank to the engine.\n. \n. \n. \nWOW GREAT ANSWER.\n. \nOk, here's where it is exactly. It is located under the car between the gas tank and the rear suspension assembly. Can't miss it.
Answer . It's in the same box with the rest of the fuses- check the owner's manual..
To reset "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the run position without starting the engine. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. This method didn't work for me. After changing the oil in my brother's 2001 Grand Am this morning, I tried it about a doze…n times with no luck. Wound up calling the local Pontiac dealer for help and the instructions I was given worked like a charm. Do this... 1. Open the Driver's side interior fuse box and find the red reset button. There's a little diagram on the inside of the plastic pop-off cover that tells you where it's located. On my brother's car it was marked "oil/tire reset". 2. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position. Do not actually turn the car on. 3. Push the red reset button once and let go. 4. Wait a second or two for the "Change Oil" light to start blinking. 5. Push the red reset button again but this time hold it down until you hear the chime/beep/complaining sound. The "Change Oil" light should turn off as soon as you let go of the button. 6. Put the cover back on the fuse box and you're good to go. (MORE)

Re: And, the 'service engine soon' light went out, which has been on forever; but mysteriously dissapears every time I've had it towed for this problem. It leads me to wonder if the mechanic is just resetting it and charging me for it until the next time. . Most likely he has to turn the ignition… on when he tows the car, to prevent the steering lock from activating.. As you know, leaving the ignition on will reset the system, so by the time he's back at the workshop the problem has gone away by itself. (MORE)
Answer . The blower motor resistor is located underneath the glovebox. unscrew the two panels underneath the dash and remove them. you will see it located in there once you get those off. it is very hard to get too because of the position, so find someone with small hands.
Answer . Take your ignition switch key insert it into the door lock hole and turn towards the front of the car!. Alternate Answer . Press key fob button marked with "unlock" or an open lock icon. Side marker lights should also blink once to indicate this operation was successful. To open all …doors at once, press the unlock button twice in rapid succession. (MORE)
follow the spark plug wire starting at the spark plug end, when you get to the other end its connected to the coil
Answer . \nThe blower motor resistor is up under the dash on the passanger side, behind the glove box. It's a bit of a problem to get at. Put the passange seat all the way back, recline it and then crawl under the dash head first. Disconnect the wiring harness and there is only 2 screws to re…move the resistor. If you know what you're looking for (already have the replacement part) it should only take a few minutes to change..

There is no easy answer to this. It all depends on how well the car has been taken care of. Each one will be different. here is a best case chart. Fuel Type Regular MPG (city) 22 MPG (highway) 32 MPG (combined) 26
you go to a liscenced technician. its actually that easy... really.... (ADDITION). It is possible to do this yourself. I am in theprocess of doing so on a grand am gt coupe with the 3.4 v6 60 degree engine.. Be prepared for a lot of work and time if you choose to do it yourself. It is a MAJOR job… but you can do it. I stress you can do it with the proper information and tools.. You will need metric sockets, box end wrenches, a Chiltons or Haynes manual, someone to help and a good clean work area for removal of parts.. Also use a digital camera to take pictures at each major junction point so you can refer back to them to reverse and put the engine back together.. Also #2. Label every electrical wire, your firing order, headers must be replaced in exact order with their own respective rocker arms also.. With this all aside use google to find a good faq about it or use grandamgt.com forums to find a few really good posts to follow.. I will let you find them and not spam the links here.. Email me if you need more info. (MORE)
Answer . the fuel filter on a 2001 grand Am is behind the gas tank.
On your door there is a rectangular plastic piece, some cars it has a round little speaker in it. Remove that piece by pulling it gently, so you wont break it. There will be 3 to 4 screws with bolts attached. Remove bolts and if they are power mirrors, you will need to unplug the connector. The conn…ector is behind the door paneling. Its not that far down.

Answer . \nOn a 2001 which is a later model grand am they use IAC(idle air control) motors so idle is ussually factory adjusted. If you are having idle problems check for common driveability porblems first (Spark, fuel, air) and if all checks out correctly then check to make sure the iac motor i…s operating properly. Let me kno if you need anythnig else. (MORE)
Answer . The OBD2 plug for most GM vehicles is to the left or right of the steering column, at the bottom of the dashboard.
I have a 2001 Grand Prix GTP and there are two belts to replace. The serpentine belt and the supercharger belt. If you are replacing one, then you should replace them both. Only Tools you should need are a socket wrench with a 15mm socket and a 10mm socket and a pair of needle-nosed pliers (also the… socket to remove your negative battery cable). The posts for the battery are right there, so I recommend taking off the negative battery cable first so you don't short your socket wrench across the battery. First you have to remove the supercharger belt. Take the wrench and the 15mm socket and put them on the 15mm nut in the middle of the tensioner for this belt (see the sticker by the radiator cap). This nut is normal threaded so set the socket wrench to tighten. When you try to tighten this bolt the spring should start to release allowing you to take this belt off. Remove belt.. Now you need to remove the serpentine belt since it is inside of the supercharger belt. The nut for the tensioner on this belt is reverse threaded so set your socket wrench to loosen. In order to get the socket wrench on this nut you need to remove the coolant reservoir for more clearance. Remove the two 10mm nuts at the top of the tank. There is a tubing fastener on the front of the tank that hold the tubing away from the belts that will need to be taken off with the needle-nosed pliers. Once these three items are removed pull the tank straight up and lay it on top of the motor being careful not to spill coolant. You should now have plenty of clearance to get to the tensioner bolt. Release tension on this belt in similar fashion, but in loosen direction. Install new serpentine belt, replace the coolant tank, then install new supercharger belt. Double check that all belts are centered on all pulleys prior to starting engine. Reattach battery cable and start engine. (MORE)
Answer . Yes, but you may have wiring issues. Usually, it's not worth the hassle. Use the correct tranny.
Opening the hood on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am is very easy to do. Thehood is opened by pulling on the hood release latch inside the caron the drivers side. After the latch is pulled the hood willrelease. The hood is then opened by pulling the second releaseunder the hood.
If its the 2001 model it should be 5x115, pattern is different prior to that year. Hope this info helps!
yes and no.it will fit but if the 2002 grand am is an se model then the speedometer only reads out to 120 MPH the GT version reads out to 150 MPH.im pretty sure it will read correctly ethier way since they are controlled electronicially but im not 100% sure.plus your not gonna be able to go over 120… anyways in the GT unless u reprogram the computer.the se shutsdown at 107-108 MPH.

The air filter housing assembly is located on the left-front(driver) side of the vehicle. It is directly to the rear of thevehicle's battery.
it's under the exauhst manifold off the water pump. u can barely see it. follow the bottom radiator hose that wraps under the engine. the metal pipe that goes up to the water pump, it sits in the end of that but you have to take the bolts out from the top of the motor.
Not to much maybe 1500, Depends if you live in flat areas or hilley. If there is a button to turn the over drive off, it is best to use it since the over drive gear is not meant to handle a load.. if you have to tow, its wise to put on a tranny cooler as well as get the transmission fluid and filte…r changed.

at a Chevy dealer, talk to the parts guy, he can make you a new key for your car as long as the locks haven't been changed. I worked at a mechanic shop so with that discount, it cost $6 for me on a 92 car gm car.
Have you checked inside the car under the dash where the stering wheel is? But it's a PCM and BMC on the Grand Am's, and the scanner for the code is an OBD 2
When you open the doors the fuses are under the caps on the ends of the dash
The 2001 Pontiac Grand Am OBD 2 port is on lower edge of dash; left of steering column
Auto Zone (and I assume other auto parts stores) will usually read the OBD codes (for free) and tell you what the code means. I found P0440 online for many other cars (and I think the codes are standard across most manufacturers) to mean there is an "Evaporative Emmision Control System" problem. Thi…s could be as simple as replacing the gas filler cap (the EECS is a pressurized system - when the gas cap doesn't hold the pressure it can cause an erroneous P0440 code. (MORE)

DEXRONÂ® III for the automatic. MN4 - 4T40-E the MN4 is the RPO code. MN5 - 4T45-E the MN5 is the RPO code. manual has a part number GM part number 88861800. hope this helps
well first you would want to go out and buy everything brand new in it. then you would want to replace everything and hope it works.!. umm... ok sure, that's one way... P1684 just means that your battery has been reconnected within the last 50 starts, it should go away I'm trying to figure ou…t how to fix code P0551 on my 2002 Neon it has something to do with the power steering pressure switch or sensor more than likely. My only problem is no one can make up their minds whether or not 2002 neons have power steering pressure sensors or switch hopefully you have better luck than me LOL (MORE)
You can't manually get the check engine light to give you the trouble codes on your vehicle. 1995 and later vehicles use the OBDII system and you must use a scanner tool to retrieve the codes. You can go to AutoZone or similar auto parts store that offers free scans to get the trouble codes retrieve…d. Or you can buy your own scan tool for about $70. (MORE)
when the car was purchased new it came with a card with the code on it if you didnt receive this card the only way to unlock is to go to a gm dealership and have them so it
Disconnect negative battery cable first. Locate alternator. locate belt tensioner. Use rachet to retract belt tensioner so belt can be removed off alternator. Remove alternator mounting bolts. disconnect positive cable and field wires from alternator. Remove alternator. Reverse to install. Removal… of negative battery cable first prevents a short should the wrench touch metal or car ground. Some mechanics just remove the positive cable but risk a dead short shoud the wrench touch vehicle ground. (MORE)
P0300 Diagnostic Code - Random Misfire Symptoms. Engine may stumble or miss Engine may be hard to start you may notice no issues Cause Failing spark plugs or spark plug wires Bad coil or coil pack Failing oxygen sensor(s) Bad fuel injector or more than one Stuck exhaust valve Bad catalytic conve…rter EGR valve or valve passage clogging Bad camshaft position sensor Bad PCM or ECM The Fix Best first action is a tune up, newplugs, wires, inspect all hoses and wire connections then reset thecode. If it returns you will need to narrow it down to a system, coilsand coil packs should be tested, catalytic converters for function ( doyou smell rotten eggs?). A misfire that jumps cylinders could indicate alean condition, do you have any other codes along with the 300? thiswill help clue you in to the source, check valve function to make surethey are opening and closing fully. This is probably pone of the mostdifficult codes to troubleshoot, so start with the basics and work yourway into the more expensive options, in many cases a good old tune upsolves the problem, back it up with a fuel system cleaning and see whereyou stand. Random/multiple misfire (MORE)
A P0420 code is "Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (bank 1). This would indicate that the cat is not getting quite hot enough, or is simply worn out, and is no longer performing its job. Bank one is considered the side of the engine with the #1 spark plug, which is the cylinder farthest… forward. (MORE)
That means you've got a problem with the vent solenoid. If you also get P1665, that's the purge solenoid. If you get both at the same time, it's most likely a bad fuse, since they share the same one.

P0442 is an EVAP code. Your system automatically pressurizes itself at certain times to check for leaks. If the problem is fixed try taking the car up to about 50MPH for a decent amount of time (10-20 minutes) and it should reset itself. SES (service engine soon) codes should also reset if you disco…nnect the battery terminals for about a minute. If none of those work you can always use an OBD2 scanner tool that has the capability of resetting SES codes to fix your problem. Just a hint, P0442 codes have been known to be associated with cracked or loose gas caps causing the system to be unable to pressurize itself. Check the cap for cracks and re-tighten it then try any or all of the above steps again. If your gas cap feels loose or weak maybe try replacing it. If none of that works you may have not fixed the problem. (MORE)
Code P1237 indicates a Fuel Pump secondary circuit malfunction, including an open or short circuit.
\nWhere did u get your new ECM? You probably need to have it " flashed" @ a gm service dept. Or a shop with tec2 scanner
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back. . Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses . Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid . Check and/or replace the sensor . Check and/or replace the pu…rge valve . Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks Usually it comes up because someone didn't close the gas cap tightly (3-clicks!) and its not a big deal. Worst case you might have to replace the canister which is expensive. Sometimes a hose gets accidentally disconnected (or not reconnected) when someone does a sloppy air filter change. In that case, just reattached the hose and you should be good to go. (MORE)
If it is multiple port no less then 40 psi, if it is TBI throttle body fuel injection no less then 25 psi.
on the passenger side of the engine near the bottom of the engine above the crankshaft.
You didnt say what engine your GA has, if its the 2.2 ecotec its on the left side of the engine. Good luck looseining the bolt on it, its near impossible to get to it with any sort of wrench. I just put a jack underneath with a bar or long stick to reach the tensioner jack it up and it relives tensi…on just enough to get that new belt on. you have to actually put ur bar on the side of the tensioner mount to get it up, having a buddy with a crowbar pull up on the tensioner from under the hood is much easier and faster.
