2003 grand am will not start, replaced battery

Ran car. tried to start again an hour later but car would not start. Got a boost and have now replaced battery. Car still will not start. Do not think fuel pump is coming on. Is there a fuse for this? Also was told there could be a code to put in because of battery going dead too many times (anti-theft feature) anyone heard of this?

    I read here on Fixya that I should turn the key to ON for 15 minutes, then turn it back to off, wait a second and then it should start again. 
    It's something with the "Security" light. 


    I'll let you know in 10 more minutes LOL

Charge up the battery (or have it charged) and then seek out a local parts store that does free charging system testing like Autozone or O'reilly auto parts, have them test the system, but off hand you have an Alternator problem or a voltage regulator issue. Get the proper diagnosis done before you replace any parts.

Won't start from battery but starts from boost. Battery is okay starter is okay


Probably an intermittent ignition switch. Try start it by connecting a wire directly to the starter solenoid and touching it on the + of the battery. Ignition switch must be ON and be sure the car is NOT in gear.

My 06 pontiac grand prix just cranks and wont start, what could it be


Been a mech for a while, may need a tune up if all original, plugs, wires at the least. Originals are usually good for 100,000 or so. Hope this helps.

I have a 97 escort, it has been sitting for a while so when i went to start it, no battery charge. Once i boosted it, it ran no problem, if you turn car off and try to start again, no charge. I left...


The first thing to do would be to put the battery on a slow or trickle charge for about 24 hours. It may be worn down enough from sitting that it needs to be revitalized. This should do it if the battery is still good. While it is charging, clean up all your cable ends and terminals to bare shiny metal. Do the battery, starter and alternator and the grounds in the engine compartment. Once the battery is charged up try it again. If the car will only start once or try to start once and need to be boosted, you will need a new battery. If it starts and runs repeatedly, then get the output checked on the alternator. A new one should charge at 14-14.5 volts but as long as it shows better than 12 volts it should be okay. Also when you are testing it, turn all your accesories on, radio, heater, A/C operate power accessories and watch to see how the alternator handles the load. The needle on your meter will bounce a little but should come back to where it was. If it doesn't then you will need to replace it as well. Hope this helps.

Its a pontiac 99 grand am se and it wont start, i got a boost and it started i went back out 2 hours later it was dead again whats wrong.


Sounds like you may have a bad alternator or battery. Get another boos and check the voltage on the battery when the engine is running with a DC meter. It should read between 13.2 to 18.2 volts DC. If it is below 13.2 you will need to replace the alternator. If it is reading between 13.2 and 18.2 volts DC then you may just need to replace the battery.

Starts with boost then car dies after 1 km and won't start


once the car is started it runs off the alternator .. so even if your battery is bad the alternator will still run the car .. so it looks lilke your alternator is bad .. when you jumped the car you charged the battery a little but not enough to keep it going since the alternator is not charging . if you hook up a charger overnight then you might be able to run it long enough to get somewhere (garage) .. try to drive when you dont need lights .. those will run down the battery in a short time .. if you have a volt meter then the battery should read about 13.8 to 14.2 volts when the alternator is working properly (car running) .. if it reads lower (like 12volts or less) then the alternator is not charging .. some auto parts stores will test your system free ..
