You could have a bad alternator not keeping the system at the appropriate level of charge. Or check the battery, replace with other known battery that is good and see if this fixes the problem. Clean all battery terminals. Dead shorts in battery can really create problems and sometimes can load test good but on the low side. Try the battery swap first if you have access to one

SOURCE: 06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Pontiac Montana 2003. Security,low fuel,and battery light are flashing. Full gauge not even coming on and radio won't work. Car won't start


Turn key on but do not attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes. Turn off. Then on. Make sure security light goes off before trying to start. Sounds like security system thinks vehicle is being stolen

2002 pontiac montanna van will not start.security light is flashing on.might be in theft mode


Yes the flashing light means the module did not read the chip in your key as being the right one for the van.
Could be the key, the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the module.
