Hi, Check and make sure the starter relay is not sticking. If it is not, then the bendix in the starter is probably bad or not shimmed properly. You can check the starter when you remove it, be careful of the torque. Good Luck to you. Hope this Fixsya!

My car wont start ,how do I reset the theft system on a 1999 monte carlo


Is the theft light on the dash lit ? If so turn the key onto the run position till the theft light goes out, about 10min. Turn key off for a few min. then start , hope that helps. If not have to have it checked for codes in the (BCM) body control module or the (PCM) powertrain control module !

Get no power when turning the ignition key on 1987 monte carlo after replacing starter


The battery power is routed through the starter on your car. If your starter connections are wrong or you blew a fuselink while changing the starter, you will get no power at the ignition switch. Double check your starter connections and test also for a blown fuselink.

Won't start getting nothing when i turn key


Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.

Car wont start. security light on.


I had this same problem with my 2002 Monte. It is a very cheap fix about $100(If you do not got to the dealer $800) The car thinks that you are trying to steal it so you have to turn the key in the on position until the security light goes off and when the light goes off dont try to start it. Turn the key to the off position and then try to start it. It should take about ten minutes. I know its frustrating cuz I've been there.
