Grand Am wont start or roll over

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am and when I go to start it I get nothing. All the accessory lights come on and the headlights work but nothing happens, it wont even roll over. I hear the fuel pump when i first turn the key and I have had this problem before but I jumped it and it started right up but not this time.

    Today I went out to start my 03 grand am & nothing. I have full power, all accessories but no crank/roll over. Last month I had my passlock silenoid replaced by the dealer. In august of 2008, I had the starter rebuilt. In January 2008 I had the fuel pump repalced. Any other suggestions to what may be the problem??

Is the security light blinking? If not, check the starter.

First check the fuse that controls the starter. If fuse is good, put the transmission in park then remove the positive battery cable from the battery. Use a jumper cable and attach one end to the post (with the heavy wire) on your starters solenoid making sure the clamp does not touch anything but the post and wire. Then touch the positive battery post with the other end. If starter is good, it will engage the flywheel. If it does, the problem could be the starting position of the ignition switch. If it doesn't engage, it could be the solenoid or the starter itself. It is usually replaced as a pair. A shop would be better at replacing an ignition switch.

I have a 2003 grand am 4cyl i have three codes PO137,PO141, PO442 and since i parked it on the 17th and then never went anywhere till the morning of the 19th my car wont start it rolls but wont catch...

The 137 code is low input,rear o2 sensor,141 is a preheat fault at the same o2 sensor,the 442 is an evap leak (like a loose gas cap )
None of these codes would cause a no start condition.I think a fuel pressure test should be first,at least see if you hear the pump run for about 3 seconds as the key is turned on,don't have to crank it just turn the key on and listen (or a helper) at the fuel filler neck.

2003 grand am security system signal car wont start

Turn the key to the on position, leave it on until the security light stops flashing. (About 10 minutes) turn key off, then try to start. If it starts it's a bad body control module. Google override directions.

My 2003 dodge grand caravan wont start. All dash board lights work, radio works, and windows rolls down. Starter has been replaced and still nothing.

Is there power at the cable at the starter? Check for grounds by putting clamp from your test light to the negative side of battery & probe the cable at the starter, starter & solenoid, sounds like the solenoid isnt engaging, but if the starter motor isnt cranking either bring the starter to the auto parts store & have it bench tested.

Car wont start...sometimes

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.
