Clicking is the solenoid, on top of your starter, have someone crank while you tap on it, lots of times this will make it connect and engage. if it works then replace solenoid on starter.

2001 grand am back seat down


When a vehicle is in 3 feet of water, the electrical
is usually damaged to the point that the vehicle
is scrapped
The vehicle is 12 years old or more,so even without
the water in there, it has some wear & you can use google
to check for bulletins of known engine issues,but I don't
think your going to fix that, even without the water issues.
The motor would have to come apart to find the issue & you
may rebuild it & never know

Try to cycle the key on/off 2-3 times at 5 second intervals. Then try to start it. If it cranks up, you have a fuel pump or regulator issue. Hope this helps, TJ

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE. In the last week my car has been revving when i start it. I have been turning the car off when i notice it revving and usually after three tries it stops revving. Now im...


It sounds like the engine has a bad vacuum leak, they are very problematic for a leaking intake gasket. This usually would be accompanied with coolant loss, but not always. Other causes are loose air plentum snorkel (if air filter recently replaced) or a leaking vacuum hose. It could also be a sign of a computer problem starting. It would be best to have a technician or parts retailer scan it for you to narrow the problem down. The clunk noise maybe unrelated or possibly engine noise(like an intake issue), check the oil and coolant levels first.

2001 Grand Am won't start then will start day


if you check the car when it runs for codes it would have security codes then for that starting problem if it has ac relay code that can effect the power to the injectors if it has ac codes . unhook ac comppressor and try to start the engine. also at the left front of the car by the ac dryer the wires are prone to rubbing on the dryer and causing starting and driving problems. hope this helps

2001 pontiac grand am se 2.4.car cranks ,but will not start.


The cam sensor is in the head near the throttle cables. The crank sensor is in the block near the oil filter. There aren't any sensors behind the balancer. If it is a problem with the security system the security light will be blinking. Does the vehicle start and die or just not crank or crank but not fire?
