98 GRAND PRIX WONT CRANK SOMETIMES


This is a trick some folks do to figure out if it's the starter. When the car doesn't crank, take something like a bat or a metal bar and hit the starter and few times. If the car starts right away then it's your starter, otherwise you might consider the fuel pump relay/fuel pump.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

1993 pontiac grand prix wont start has battery but starter wont turn


First thing i would check is the security system. If the battery is good, and it feels like everything is normall except it just wont crank. It could be the security or the starter. Put your key in and try to start it, when it doesnt start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY this is a dead give away and you could find all the answers you may need on this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

2004 pontiac grand prix wont start..lights are bright and work fine. I just hear a buzzing sound when trying to start..


This sounds like either the starter or starter solenoid is bad. You can take the starter off and take it to O'riely's or Autozone. And they will check the starter and solenoid for free. The solenoid is attached to the starter.

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...


if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

Won't start but has radio and lights etc.makes no noise when you try to start it. No previous problems.....has gas..can't think of any thing else...thanks for any help


Hi! First of all please have your battery checked. The lights and radio may be working but may not be enough to turn on the car. If the battery is fine, I believe its gonna be a starter problem. The solenoid may be burnt not giving enough power to turn the flywheel of the car thats why it wont start. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Try checking the starter solenoid wires.Make sure the wire hasnt come loose and the battery to solenoid cable is tight.
