It is worth checking the volt drop across crimped terminals. I was called out to a GM car that wouldn't start some of the time. It had apparently already cost the owner plenty for abortive call-out charges and checks that revealed nothing.

That fault when I found it was a dirty crimp between the positive battery terminal and the cable which looked and behaved normal until the starter demanded a supply of current when it would act just like a dead battery.

Need more info.... If you are getting more than five years out of a battery, every day is a free gift. Ten years and you are running on borrowed time.

1993 pontiac grand prix wont start has battery but starter wont turn


First thing i would check is the security system. If the battery is good, and it feels like everything is normall except it just wont crank. It could be the security or the starter. Put your key in and try to start it, when it doesnt start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY this is a dead give away and you could find all the answers you may need on this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I have a87 bonneville that the service engine light came on. after i shut the car down it wont restart


Check the computer error codes. Then check the charging system and battery. It could be a bad alternator and dead battery. If the charging system checks out and you have no spark, it could be a bad distributor cap and rotor, coil or ignition module. If the car was overheating, or had low oil level or low oil pressure and you kept driving it, the engine might be seized.

Car wont start 2002 pontiac grand prix


You must have a nearly dead battery, have it jumped then go to a Kragen and have them test the battery and the charging system for a fault. This is FREE!
