Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am
I had the same problem with my 97 Grand Am GT. And odly enough there was no trouble code. I researched into the problem and I found it was the crank postion sensor located on the backside of the engine block just above the transmission. This is one of those failures that does not always send a code to the OBD. And in fact the ECM does not see it as a failure but as if you turned the key off. There for no trouble code is stored. It is a fairly cheap part to replace just not easy to reach due to its location on the engine block.
I hope this information helps. Good Luck

You put in a new battery and it just keeps cranking? ensure that it is getting fuel check/change the fuel a filter also i usually take out the first spark plug and hold a screw driver to the tip while its out to make sure its getting spark. When a car doesnt start you first decipher if it is getting enough power then remember that a car basics are air, fuel, spark, make sure its getting all these and that will help you decipher your problem. You can also go and get the OBD II codes at most local auto parts stores for free. At which point you can decipher the problem.
