Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix
The car starts fine when cold, no grinding or any other unusual noises like its a starter problem. once the car reaches temp you can shut the car off and it wont crank the starter . there anre no noises at the starter when you try to start it, but when you turn the key there is a single click that comes from near the battery at the jump terminal. im a mechanic by trade but i specialise mostly on dodge and chrysler products but am trained on other mfg models, but this one has me stumped is sounds like a bad solenoid switch but i cant find one.
Sounds like a hot soak issue with the starter.I bet the starter needs replacing. The only other cause I can think of is maybe the starter lost a heat shield. I am not sure, however, if it actualy has one as OEM or not.
