Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

2004 pontiavc grand am will not start

My battery is good. When I try to start my car, the lights, radio, all accessories, etc work fine so the battery isn't the problem. When I attempt to crank the car, nothing happens. I have read several different ways to reset the passlock (which may be the problem) but would like clariification if resetting the passlock is even a viable solution. I would like to know before I put a new starter on, if that would be the problem, or if it is in fact the passlock system.

Try to reset the passlock first. It's free and won't cost you anything to try. My car did the exact same thing and I didn't see the security light on..I'm not even sure it was on but, reseting the passlock fixed the problem. Look at dvj2a's solution.

2002 pontiac grand am not starting


My brother's 02 grand am 2.2L would not start. Car has spark, fuel pump works,
good battery, plugs and plug boots new, new fuse for the fuel pump in the fuse block under the hood, everything seems to work but car won't start, crank sensor fine timing chain fine etc... The problem was a security issue. Security light on dash was blinking when trying to start the car but car won't start. The fix for me was Attempt to start the car by turning the key to the Start/Run Position.
Observe that the vehicle fails to start and that the security light is blinking.
Release key to the 'ON/Accessory' Position. (DO NOT turn key to the 'off' position.)
Allow the vehicle to sit with the key in the 'ON/Accessory' Position for no less than 12 minutes.
Turn key to off position and allow the vehicle to remain in the 'OFF' position for no less than 30 seconds. Then try to start the car. I was surprised this worked for me. 2002 pontiac grand am 2.2L. Hope this helps for you folks.

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!

Loud clicking noise in 2004 F-150. Will not turn over or start up. Lights, radio, etc still works


Most likely problem is a low battery. Clicking noise is starter trying to engage.

Car no longer starts


Check battery terminals make sure they are not corroded and that the are tightly secured. If all is good the battery is at fault. Replace battery and then have charging system checked to make sure the alternator is working fine. Or you can remove the battery and have it load tested a t an Auto_zone for free.

Not starting


It was the security Passlock system on my car as well. I did't notice that the security light had come on the first time. Look up Passlock in the owners manual.
  1. You can reset it yourself for free by turning the key to accessory position
  2. Leave for ten minutes on accessory mode.
  3. Turn car off completely
  4. Try to restart.
This fixed my problem on my own after I paid to have it fixed and it happened again the next day.
