1994 Grand am GT not getting power

I just installed my new starter and my cars not getting any power. Anyone know what could be the cause? The battery is new, and ive had it tested at autozone to see if it still had a charge and its fine. Some people I know are saying theres a ground wire not hooked up. The cars A/C Compressor was siezed up so I pulled it out and put in a Bypass pulley. Would the electrical for the A/C compressor not being hooked up cause my car not to get power? When I have the battery put in and open the door im getting no dinging, or lights or anything along those lines. I turn the key and nothing.

Thank you

    We put a new starter in a 94 grand am and now we have no power to anything it seems.  There is good spark at the battery connection but no dome light, horn, ignition etc.  Thought it might be a main fuse but dont know where that is.

1994 Mazda Protege wouldn't start, battery seemed dead replaced battery with a new one and still no power


Does anything work? Lights, radio? Do the warning lights and gauges turn on when key is turned to on? That would verify power is getting to the ignition switch and is being sent out.
Pretty limited in what you can check without a voltmeter or test light. If you have power to the ignition switch, need to know if power is getting to the starter solenoid on the starter motor when the key is held in cranking position. If power there, likely a new starter is called for-have yours tested.

I have a 1994 grand am that wont start..it just clicks but starter is good and battery


If you are saying the starter clicks but the engine will not crank, and you know for a fact the starter and battery are ok, the engine may be locked up.
Can you turn the crank with a wrench on the alternator pulley ?

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

My 1994 chevorlet lumina apv-3.1 motor: when you


when you say car lost power bought a new battery.sound like alternator not charging battery.with car running your voltage at battery should be 13.5 volts or 14.5 volts it not alternators need replacing.have garage replace alternator if faulty because 1993 to 1994 cars if you disconnect battery car would lose memory causing car not to idle.the car will stall out at a stop light or stop sign whole lot.it would relearn itself but the stalling out dangerous around a lot of traffic.

It will not even turn over, has power to starter, but no power to ignition fuse next to battery, thought maybe automatic shutdown fuse, but dont know


Take a 1/2 drive socket set and put it on the lowest pulley or crank pulley and try turning the engine over by hand to make sure you have not sized the engine.

1994 grand am not getting any power after changing starter.


If you have a security system make sure it's been re-set. If you have power at main starter terminal check power at the small terminal with the key turned to start. If no power there, check the neutral safety switch. Check that battery is fully charged and terminals are clean before anything else.
good luck...need more help just ask!

Sounds like the auto shut down relay. Located somewhere in the front grille/bumper area. Relay triggers on impact to shut down all power in order to prevent fires etc. Great idea but can cause exactly the frustration you are having if you don't know it's there!!
