SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand prix, just
make sure the battery is fully charged,, if the alternator isn't working right , everything is run off the battery for a short time, and it will just die , the lights and other functions like the radio require little voltage to work, so try that first, if it turns over fast ,, then you need to check for fuel, if the pump is weak, it could be not enough pressure to keep the car running

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.
