Having problems with your 1989 Pontiac Grand Am ?
All of a sudden the car will not start - it turns over but doesn't fire.
Fuel pump or ignition system problems could case this. Normally if it is a safety device the car will not even turn over. My sister in law just experienced this problem. I put a new distributor in and it fired right up. Make sure you use a volt meter and properly test your ignition system before purchasing any parts. A good repair manual will tell you how to test the fuel pump and ignition system.
Safety device coupled to the ignition lock assembly failed ... will have to be replaced along with dealer-coded keys ... prox. cost if done by dealer or auto service is about $300.00.
