Have you local gm dealer run your vin "vehicle identification number" on there computer to see if the starter recall was done on it. If it has been done it sounds like it could be a bad starter.

Continuous clicking noise when trying to start car


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid.

Something cheaper to try first, though, is a starter relay:

I have 1999 Sunfire and it won't start everytime i try starting it all i can hear is a fast knocking noise in the starter i do have a new started in it, any idea's what would cause that ?


Check the battery's state of charge-might be too low. Check battery post connections. Clean and retighten them, and check battery ground, and connection of cable to starter. Sounds like starter is not getting full battery voltage to work.

2001 Pontiac sunfire, 4 cyl. standard.won't start


Yes, it could be the Neutral safety switch. Try popping the clutch a few times. Push it in and let it pop out and make sure you have it in Neutral. Also, try jumping the vehicle. It is possible to have all the volts in the world and everything looks good but not have enough amperage in the battery due to a dead cell to crank the motor over.

Pontiac Sunfire 1997. Won't start.


When jumped off ,if it drags to start,have the starter checked,and if when jumping the car off,the starter turns the engine over real good,then the cables are most likely the problem,replace them.

2003 Pontiac Sunfire died on me, how/why?


If you hear a loud clank when you try to start it, but nothing turns, that is the starter trying to turn the engine, but the engine is locked up. If the timing chain/belt jumped, the engine would still spin.

2000 Pontiac Sunfire wont start


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.

Car won't start - anti-theft light flashing


it sounds like the immobilizer is faulty. this will shut off the electrical feed to the starter motor. you will need to take it to a garage to get this fixed.

hope this helps.
