this auto has total electrical problems. i replaced the alternator just 4 weeks after purchase. i broke down in the middle of the ocala national forrest with 4 10 year old girls in the car. since then, i have replaced a 4 year old battery at 2 years age and all of the fuses. in 1/00 while driving in a fog white out on top of a 300 ft bridge, i put on my flashers and all my lights went out. a vehicle behind me didn't see me and nearly pushed us both off the bridge. since then every time i put on my flashers, all other electrical things stop. my elect door locks keep blowing fuses and windows don't work all the time. i'v contacted the dealer who told me all these problems began after i bought the car and it was my problem. i purchased a extended warrenty, but this problem is not covered. please help!! *ak

Pontiac Trans Sport 1997

Safety incident date:
Apr 04, 2000
Location:
Cecil, PA

both headlights and one front sidemarker (turn signal) light were replaced under warranty due to excessive moisture/water droplets inside the assembly. one of the replaced headlights now has the same problem again (twice in 2.5 years). pontiac has issued a service bulletin to dealers saying not to replace any more headlight assemblies because the moisture that forms within them is normal. they say the moisture should dissipate after the headlights are on for a few hours. some of the moisture does go away, but i consider it a safety issue when half of the headlight lense is covered with steam/water even if some of it eventually clears up. i contacted pontiac directly and they refuse to do anything about this.*ak
