2001 Grand Am GT Electrical Problems
When I woke up the following morning, my trunk was open (and no one had touched the keys and the car was off!). So, I thought perhaps the keyless entry control had a defect of some kind. I removed the battery from the keyless entry control and manually unlocked the door with the key. When I put the key in the ignition the "Security" light was on, but was now blinking. The car would not start. I followed the instructions I had read about resetting. I turned the key to the "on" position and waited approximately 11 minutes until the "Security" light went off. I then moved the key to the off position, waited one minute and then started the car. Shortly thereafter, the "Security" light came back on and remained solid but the car started every time I stopped therafter.
Later that same day, I parked the car and went out to dinner, knowing that the car would not stay locked on its own, but thought I would deal with that later. When I returned to the car, the lights on my rear-view mirror and the dome light on the inside of the car were on and the alarm on the inside was going off as if to alert me that a door was ajar. I got in and started the car and the alarm went off, but the lights remained on. I drove the car home, and the lights went off, but would come on at each stop sign or red light (or whenever the car was in stopped position). As I accelerated, they would then go off again. This repeated. When I finally parked the car at home and got out, the inside lights would not turn off and the buzzer/alarm would not turn off either. I walked around the car and reshut every door. I did this twice. With great frustration, I went around and pushed harder on each closed door to make sure they were all the way closed. When I did this to the rear passenger door, the inside lights went out, but the buzzer kept going off.
There was also a light that went off indicating low coolant, which I just had topped off and checked three days prior.
It also sounds like the radio, ever so slightly will get louder or softer on its on while I'm driving.
And now here a few minutes ago the radio doesn't even come on. Thanks for reading.
