If the starter motor click but does not engage, the engine will not turn over failing solenoid in the starter motor is usually the fault.

SOURCE: 2000 Olds Bravada ignition

Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.

SOURCE: car wont start

don't know if this is needed now, but try the crank sensor.  I had the same problem years ago, and the crank sensor was the problem.  this is common in many 3.8 engines. i'm currently looking at another ninety-eight, and guess what...the crank sensor was replaced for the same reasons.

SOURCE: car won't start!!! & ABS Light on

Sounds like carbon build up on the contacts inside the electrical ignition switch which is not the key cylinder. Its located on the lower steering coluum if coluum shift or if you have a floor shift it will be inside the console

Do you see a light on the dash that says "security" when this happens? This might be your problem. When this light is on, it disables the starter. Check out this link for info and ways to fox this yourself. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

if you have a multi meter,
check voltage at battery with car running,should be at least 13-14 volts,
now turn on fan motor to high,flashers on,radio on, and check voltage at battery,regulator should have adjusted voltage to handle the load,should still be 13-14 volts,
now turn all that stuff off,and turn on headlights and recheck battery voltage,if below 13-14 volts replace regulator,if voltage is spiking higher than 14volts replace regulator.you do not need other belts.

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Never take the cable off when running. Its so hard on the voltage reg. And the alternator. Take the alternator and get it tested free at auto-zone or O rilleys. they test mine free all the time. Hope this is helpfull .. Sawdust46
