    Again there could be a few different reasons but most likely the problem is your alternatore,I have had the same problem and at first I thought the alternator was only for chargeing the battery, but if the altenator is bad the car will not stay running,my car was a 1998 chevy.With out spending allot of money I would take a ride to a junk yard and get a used altenator, I use a place where it is a you take the part off your self,even if you get the part yourself and have some one put the part on for you, You will save money by getting the part yourself.Whenever dealing with a altenator the first step is to make sure the belt is not slipping or broken before going through the expense of a part new or used.
    I hope this answer helps you out. Good luck

    My Pontiac G6 has a new battery. Took it back to the store because it was not holding a charge. They checked it out and gave me a new battery. Still had a problem of it draining. Had the starter and the altinator check and they are both good. Had all fuses checked and they are all good. Removed the radio fuse after reading the problems with the radio. Still the battery drains.

Welcome Back! As stated before, The Belt Tensioner is Probably Bad. If the Belt is not Tight enough it will send the Error for the Light to the Computer.

Better check with a test light for power to the small wire that goes to the starter from the key switch. If no power need to check for a neutral safety switch or fuse. Or the starter you got is bad. Alternator will not cause not to crank over

It looks like the wiring needs to be checked, you mentioned a wire that is reconnected, maybe it is damaged in another place, the light comes only if the alternator does not work or is not properly wired.

04 pontiac sunfire battery light and panel lights dim


sounds like your alternator. if you have a multimeter then turn on your car and turn your headlights on/ac and heater fan on high/wipers on and blinkers on. once they are all on hook the meter to the battery and if it reads less then 14 volts then the alt is bad. or you can just take it to a shop and have it tested.

04 pontiac grand prix wont start.


first remove the battery and take it to a auto parts place and have them check it. move on from there. if the battery is good the do a starter draw test. take a meter and hook it to your battery. now have someone try and start the car. if the voltage on the battery drops from 12.8 to below 9 volts then the starter is bad. if the voltage doesnt drop much at all then its prolly the solenoid both of which require starter replacement since most solenoids are on starters. if still nothing then check ignition switch. but before anything else ensure vehicle is in park. if it is in part use a meter to test neutral safety switch.

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.
