You likely have electrical wiring problems. This would affect things such as your radio, air conditioner, and power windows. You should consult a mechanic ASAP. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: air conditioner doesn't run when
I have to assume you are trying to leave the AC on when you shut off the engine, and when you start it the AC is not engaged-it should work if you left it on when you shut it down, possibly you have a system that requires it to be manually activated...but that would be weird, since I have a few GM's...you are leaving it on when you shut down, right?

SOURCE: The fan is not working,
Check the fuse for the blower motor. (fan motor). If it isblown, change it. If it's not, you may need a new fan motor. Check to see if power is present at the fan motor. If it is, then the motor is probably burnt out.

SOURCE: 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.

Testimonial: "kellertech1?? i tried something new.. my batt. was dead after sitting for 5hrs so i jumped it & later unhooked the batt. & hooked the batt. back up next day & car started ok kinda a weak start but started. so can a starter drain a batt or where should i look for a short or could this be a weak batt. that tested good but 2 weak 2 start the car."
Go under the car and see if you have 12 volts at the purple wire to the starter solenoid when the key is held to crank position, the wire may be broken or the starter solenoid is defective.

Does it work if you tap it with it switched on? If so, then you have a worn out motor, and need to replace it.
Check power to the motor. If you have power, then replace the motor.
If you don't have power, then check the switch mechanism.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have
the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty
alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will
surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be
replaced to resolve the problem.
If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator
then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's
service life and replacement will be necessary.
You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery
connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This
will reset the system and can get the battery light off.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
