Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2000 pontiac montana, I got out and turned it off and when I got back in to leave it wouldnt start. All of the dash lights and dinger and headlights and auto locks and everything still works as it is suposed to. I was told it was a bad starter so we put a new starter and it still wont turn over. I have cleaned both battery terminals changed starter checked every fuse and still can figure it out. Before it quit some times I would turn the key and it wouldnt start like its doing now but I would turn the key off and back on and it would start. please help me figure this out and tell me its a simple fix.. thank you.. lorie
Sound like ignition switch going bad or have loose wire to ignition switch.

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

Its likely that you have either a bad ignition switch or a bad neutral safety switch (if stickshift, clutch switch) Try starting in neutral...if it starts, change neutral switch (jump across clutch switch, check starting in neutral with your foot on the brake) Ignition switch is on top of steering column under dash.
