Help me please I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Am SE. I jt bought it an put a new battery in it an put a new serpentine belt on it. I went to go to start it an nothing happens no clicking or anything everything...


Turn the key to the run position. Check the dash to see if the security light is flashing. If it is, leave the key in the on position till the light stops flashing. (this may take ten minutes) When the light stops flashing, turn the key to the off position. Then start the car. Make sure the head lights are turned off so that you do not kill the battery.

My 96geo metro has no elect power


do you have a voltmeter, any?
if you do, this is childs play, but not, near impossible to see electrons
with eye balls. we can see atoms, but not electrons, probably never.
Dr.Tyson...... quote.
but back to earth, this is easy , the FSM cover this, as does alldata.com
but i bet $15 for the online is over budget?
my guess, is not have any elect. power really means you cant
CRANK the engine over?
or it cranks or will not start.
no car cranks with out a starter, cept my M/T i can push start
it and gravity start mine.
but my guess 2 is yours is A/T tranny.
so must crank.

why not post like this.
i get in car, i turn on head lights, they are dead. (dead battery or fuse blown) no, my head lights work. (this is always test 1)
then i turn the key on, and the dash idiot lamps all glow. (normal)
if not the fuses are blown or the battery is dead.
a good battery reads (any voltmeter even walfart $10 meter)
12.6vdc rested.
ok my dash glows. and more important the EFI CEL lamp
this lamp is called many thing, MIL, SES or check engine light
if it dont glow, then the Fuser to the EFI are in fact blown.
or the lamp is bad.
if in usa, you can plug any OBD2 scan tool into the near knees DLC port and it will connect, key on, if not the fuses are BLOWN.
you push the scan button and get what codes? DTC errors.
report them.
then crank for 5 seconds (im assuming it can) and you get what DTC.

if car will not crank
then jumper start crank it. does it?
yes, then the battery was dead.
if battery dead, charge it , does it crank now?
if battery discharges parked this is called parasitic drain.
if starter is dead , with jumper cables that is bad starter or key line.


we can do this 1 step at a time
but you never posted the symptoms.

  1. head lamps dead.
  2. dash dead.
  3. starter dead (will not crank)
  4. all above good , engine will not start.


in that order.

I hadn't realized that an internal light was on and it was just sitting there for over a day. I went to turn it on and nothing came on no lights ,no dash board, no click. tried boosting it still nothing....


old post.
ok, no head lights, that means the battery is dead.
head lights are hot all the time, (safety) if they are dead
diagnosing HL is simple to do.
voltmeter to battery, oops 10v. bad. charge it.

many times leaving lights on, kills the battery for ever.
camel and straw deal.

1: dead battery , not 12.6v.
2: fuses blown. (in engine bay fuse box)
3: battery lugs corroded real bad.

2003 matrix starter relay location


The starter relay is located in the instrument panel junction block.

a couple things you can check quickly.

  1. check for power at the AM2 fuse in the instrument panel junction block. If there is power than its safe to assume the relay is getting power. if there is no power ceck the main 30 amp fuse in the under hood junction block (you owners manual will have this info as well. look for fuses in the index. You can look at an online PDF version on the toyota website)
  2. Make sure the security light is not illuminated. If the security system is active it will not allow the starter to engage.
  3. Check for power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power than the starter is bad. If there is no power let me know if you have an automatic or manual transmission and ill see if i can get you more info.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I replaced battery and it still won't start. Elect power is on, but nothing happens as far as starting the engine


Do you hear clicking from the engine when trying the starter? If not sure, have someone try the starter while you listen at the engine. If it comes from the solenoid, it should be near the starter motor and have a large wire going from it to the starter motor and another large wire going to the battery positive post. If no clicks, check for a loose or blown fuse for the starter. Again, if it did click, you need a test light or a voltmeter to determine if the problem is the solenoid or it is the starter motor. You should read 12 volts DC on a meter or get light if using a test light. Check the battery side of the solenoid (light on) and try the starter. If the light stays on, the battery side cable is ok. Move to the starter terminal with the light and try the starter--if you get light, the starter motor is bad and needs replaced. If you get no light, then the solenoid is bad and needs replacement.

Vehicle will not start


it sounds like the solenoid on the starter. you can try bumping on it with something. it has wires connecting to it. dont hit it real hard though.
