Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
This happens intermittently, battery has full charge, interior lights come on with turn of key then everything just dies
Check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.. Batteries can read 12.5v on a multimeter but under load they die to virtually nothing. have a load test done on the battery as the indications are a bad cell

Have you tried to charge that battery? If you have and get the same result check your battery terminals for corrosion. If they are fine your battery may have failed.

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.

first remove the battery and take it to a auto parts place and have them check it. move on from there. if the battery is good the do a starter draw test. take a meter and hook it to your battery. now have someone try and start the car. if the voltage on the battery drops from 12.8 to below 9 volts then the starter is bad. if the voltage doesnt drop much at all then its prolly the solenoid both of which require starter replacement since most solenoids are on starters. if still nothing then check ignition switch. but before anything else ensure vehicle is in park. if it is in part use a meter to test neutral safety switch.
