    04 Grand Prix starts, then dies

    This seems like a common problem with W bodies to me. I've worked at a lotta lube stations and these were the most common cars we got (gotta love fleet accounts). The car starts, then dies right away. I can keep it alive by giving it a little gas - but theres still a problem. Does it when its hot and cold. I'm sure a lotta you guys have seen this before, any clue as to what it is?

    Not sure if its related (but worth checking out). The car sometimes gets "Low Voltage" from the DIC, and the power flickers a little bit. I'm thinkin alternator or voltage regulator.

    Yes this car is bad luck, glad its not mine.

    If no one read my other post, its a 2004 Grand Prix GT with 60k miles.

    Never though of that. Would that make it do it only once in a while? Once you get it running for a second it stays running fine.

    I know the Lumina likes to shut off when it feels like it. It gives the Crank sensor code. Have you scanned the car?

    Hmm... haven't scanned it yet. I'll try that when I get a chance.
