2000 Pontiac sunfire won't start makes no noise when turn key over . headlights and radio work and dome light .. I have replaced steering column and ignition switch


This could be a couple different things causing your No-start condition. first thing I would check (Battery is good) access the starter solenoid, the small single wire connection is the start signal. Test for 12 volts here with DVOM or test light while someone turns the key. If there is 12 volts reading, the starter solenoid is defective. If there isn't 12 volts reading check all the fuses (with test light).
The second item causing the trouble could be the Neutral Safety Switch (Auto Trans) or Clutch Safety Switch (Manuel Trans) These could be open or out of adjustment.
Hope this helps you...

I can hear the fuel pump running, lights are on, but won't start the car.


First make sure you have good battery connections. A poor connection will give enough power to turn on head lights but not turn on starter motor. Clean the connections and ensure they are tightened.

If connections are good, check voltage of battery. It should be at least 12 volts.

If battery voltage is low, either charge the battery, or attempt to jump start the car (red to positive terminals, black to negative terminals; attached positive first, prefer to attach negative terminal to a good metal location other than the negative terminal on the battery).

If the starter motor is visible, try tapping lightly with a mallet to free it up. This may or may not work depending on the problem. If the car starts, replace the starter motor anyway or it will strand you again.

Most cars have a starter relay and a fuse for the ignition. Do a Google search on the internet for your model of car, or look in your owners manual to find the location of the solenoid and/or fuse. Replace the fuse if it's burned out. Note that a shorted starter motor could cause the fuse to burn out, so replacing the fuse may not fix the problem. Suspect a shorted starter motor or wire if the fuse burns out again. You may need some professional assistance at this point to check the solenoid.

If the solenoid is bad, it is usually replaced along with the starter. Remove starter motor/solenoid and take to an Autozone or Oreilly or equivalent and have them check its functionality. Be sure to disconnect the battery's negative terminal before removing the starter motor.

If the starter is good, then your problem is likely either your car's security system (check if security light is flashing if you have such) or check the ignition switch. If you have a mechanic friend, see if he can bypass the ignition switch and get the starter motor to turn over.

Poor electrical connections or a bad battery or a bad starter motor/solenoid are the most likely culprits.

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.

Try to start it and nothing happens it wont turn over


Check all your fuses..It maybe just your fuse for the ignition...which in fact turns your starter over.... And yes your starter is good, if it tries to crank when you jump it..Now if your fuses are good, then yea your problem mat be the ignition switch itself....But check all your fuses first...Goodluck...

Starter issues


I would first verify battery power, Once you have proper power there, either via a good trickle charger or battery replacement, I would check the fuseable links mounted right at the "hot" side of the starter. Just follow the 4 gauge wire from the battery to the 15mm/13mm nut on the starter. Make sure you have power to both sides of the wire with a test light. THis is the only wire that supplies the power for the relay fuse box. So either your not making power, or the power isn't reaching this box. Let me know how you make out.
