Asked by Jan 23, 2018 at 08:00 AM about the 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got my car a while back qorked fine for about a
month. Hooked it up to jump my uncles truck. Ever
since then things have been odd. Like my traction
control will tuen off randomly and wont come back
on, wiper blades stop wprking for a while and
come back, brake and indicator lights will stop
working and come back on days later. Could this
be a simple fix or will i have to sell some prgans on
the black market to affprd a trip to the mechanic.

do not ever use 21st Century cars to jump- when the other car starts, the 2 charging systems get into conflict and current is sent surging back into the cars' systems- the electrical systems do not like current flowing the wrong way thru their veins- "Dave? What are you doing, Dave?"
