Pontiac Grand Am Recall for turn signal malfunction

FOR EVERYBODY SUFFERING FROM THE FAULTY TURN SIGNALS (SOMETIMES THEY WORK, SOMETIMES HEY DONT) THERE WAS A RECALL NOTICE SENT THROUGH THE MAIL STATING THAT THERE IS A FACTORY DEFECT IN THE WIRING SYSTEM OF THE TURN/HAZARD LIGHTS ... BRING IT TO YOUR NEAREST DEALERSHIP AND THEY HAVE TO FIX IT!!! (i believe that this is what causes al the other problems my fellow grand am'ers are having)

    i have a 97 grand am se and found a recall on the fuse box cover my car has the 2.4L twin cam motor with the 4T60E transmission the recall requires nothing more than the installation of 2 metal clips in the sides of the under hood fuse block and another plastic cover to go under the existing cover. i had problems with mine when water and dirt got into my fuses and kept popping them but i figured i could save someone alot of hassle

    Hi I know it's old and all that, but here is the problem, developted a fuel leak at the fuel filter (the curved steel line) I relaced it and at the time, also the filter, let 2 cycles recharge the fuel rail, the car started normally and ran fine, but, when accellerating past half throttle (meaning when you smash the gas pedal) the car bogs severely and sounds like there is no air filter or the car is running on air) there are no diagnostic "check engine" lights on, and I have no idea where to start to figure this out. When you let off the gas it returns to normal and runs fine, I live in a hilly area and am a senioe citizen, so don't ;augh at an old man about this. (Ha Ha I know some of you reading this thought so) anyway anybody got an Idea about this??? Thanks for reading.

    Ok, This is alittle confusing, Yeah it's an old car. This is where it started, It developed a gas leak at the fuel filter near the curved steel part, simple all replaced teste, and no leak, changed the filter as well, now when any attempt to force the throttle the car seems to be sucking air and does not accellerate (as in going uphill and it does downshift properly) and when you lett off of the pedal and return to normal, also it operates correctly when anything less than near full throttle exists. We have owned this car for 6 years and it never acted like that prior. (Ok we live in avery hilly area,and I am over 6 decades old and not a kid) My concern about this is a potential highway problem when maximum acceleration is necessary Thanks folks don't know where to look here, Evap system? can't figure this out otherwise it's OK. Thanks again.

    My mom has a Grand AM. Her car was one of the ones in the recall. Does the recall notice have an expiration date or do you have to stay under 150,000 miles to have it fixed? She seems to think that she has to stay under 150,000 miles in order to have the blinker fixed.

    Hi my Vin number is 1G2NE52E85M219788.
    Knowing my luck there probably isnt a recall on my car. I cant take this clicking noise! I think I'm going to have to take it in soon.
    Thanks for your help

    Our vehicle is having the same problem. Its a 2000 Grand Am SE. My wife took it to the place we bought the vehicle and he said its our problem because the vehicle is more than 10 years old. Well how come we were never notified of this recall? We purchased a warranty through the GM dealership that has now run out but why were we not notified of this recall? When was this recall issued? Once again unhappy with our GM purchase.

    There was no recall for this issue that I'm aware of. There were technical bulletins issued about it.
  • crude1crude1 Posts: 4
    Yup. 3500 I was told to be exact and turns out my vehicle was one of the bunch. Waiting to hear back from Pontiac.
  • burdawgburdawg Posts: 1,524
    I should have been more specific. There was no general recall for N-body cars (and some other models) that used this particular multi-function switch. There was limited ones for certain production runs however. Hopefully you'll fall within that. 3500 is a drop in the bucket for all the vehicles produced with this part.

    Are we talking about the steering column switch or the flasher mount in the dashboard that does not always work due to the dual purpose of that flasher. (4 way and signals)
