Since I cant find a good forum site for my grand prix I decided to post it here

I need someone to explain or give me a guide to replace my map lights on my 2000 grand prix gt with sun roof... I think im just over thinking this but I don't want to break anything...

Also I don't know how to program the keyless entry remote I broke the first remote I had from dropping it... I would like a guide for both thanks!

pics of the lights would be very helpful

cant find the exact same one but only difernece mine has a sunroof switch in the middle

wow thats a stumper....normally they snap in place

i would take a small flat head and gently go around the edge and see if it pops out....

sounds good I think im going to try it tom. just afraid of breaking it... upgraded all interior lights to leds besides these last two...

if you can get the interior nice an warm then park in a heated garage.....plastic gets fragile when cold. less likely to break if its warm

cant that's what sucks

12-30-2012, 06:12 PM
then just drive around a bit with the heat on really high. park and leave it on....should be enough

as for the remote might need to take to a dealer....not sure though

Go here for map lights. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=E_nuUBfNJ9w&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DE_nuUBfNJ9w As for the keyless entry, I'm almost positive you need a dealer to program the remote.

mine is a little different I have the sun roof button in the middle the setup is a little different let me find a pic

Should be about the same concept though.

Ya, same concept just take off the whole panel, then remove four screws, remove panel, and they're right there.

wasn't a good video... just pull straight down the middle in the front correct?

12-30-2012, 07:00 PM
wow that so dumb....

but ya just watched it appears it just unsnaps

12-30-2012, 07:03 PM
Ya, video quality sucked, glad I didn't make that one. Yes, just pull down with a straight blade screwdriver, and should pop right out.
