It is possible that you have a partial connection to the battery, enough to get lights to function but not enough to crank the engine. I had the same problem with my cherokee. Try tightening all connections to the battery. If not it may be your starter solenoid. Let me know if you need anything else or if this works.

Have you battery checked to make sure it is not dead. It can still have enough juice for the dome lights but not the turn over. Make sure to charge your battery fully before having it checked. If the battery checks out good then you should have the alternator checked. It is possible that it is on its last leg and not effectively charging your battery.

I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

that's becasue the new abattery went dead because it was not charging. The battery light must be OFF to charge the battery. Take it back to whoever fixed it. May be a bad wire betwen battery & alternator too.

cehck this ground for a good connection - G104
Left front fender near air cleaner

check the 20 amp fuse for the charging system. Fuse 26 in teh engine compartment fuse box.

Hellooo


to clean the terminals of the cable of the battery and the terminals of the battery since if that is dirty not tenes a good contact for which the starter you will not work. It checks if when you give start the lights of the board do not go away if they go away it is because you do not have good contact. If all that is well the problem is of the starter also you have to verify the starter relay

Take the car to Sears or another large auto parts store and have them check the condition of the battery and alt. They do the check for free!
Watch what they do and have them explain.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.
