Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

2004 grand am won't start, but tries...

In the last couple months, it would start fine and then it started to seem like it was having trouble starting, like a weaker cranking when i would turn the key, but it would still start on the first try. On friday, I go to start the car and it tries, but won't (it was cold out). I let the key sit in the ''on'' position for about a minute and then try again and it starts (I did have to push the gas, because it seemed to not have enough fuel or something). Tried to start it today, sunday (warm today), and it cranks about 2 times and then just stops, then I take the key out and try again and it cranks once and stops. If i let it sit for a few minutes, it will then crank 2 times again (like roo-roo, then silence), but not enough to actually start. Also when in the ''on'' position, I believe it's the fuel pump that i can hear for about 2 seconds and the oil and battery light stay on, and security light isn't on so it's not that. Any help would be appreciated

Sounds like your battery is on the way out. Have a load test done on battery & voltage check on alternator. If all works well once it starts, I'd bet on the battery, but load test will confirm, which they will do for free usually if your buying the battery from them.

Slow Start/Engine Light


My advice is that you get the trouble codes read[or buy you own obd2 reader at wallmart because around here they charge $60 for a scan and you can buy the scaner from them for less than $100 and you can check it yourself if the light comes back on].A scan tool is the only way to know for sure where you should be looking.
