Question about 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Problems Starting I just got a used 2004 Pontiac Sunfire. It runs great but has had a problem starting a couple of times. It has plenty of battery power and sounds like it wants to start. It's not a problem with cold since I live in South Florida. It also has no trouble once running. Twice now when this happened I just took my other vehicle to get to where I needed to go and a few hours later it started right up. Any Suggestions?

You can have your starter checked for excessive draw (happens in old worn units) You can do this yourself by placing a voltmeter between both battery posts and cranking the engine. Battery should have 12v. When cranking, volts should not go below 10...9.5 at lowest. If it does, the starter is worn out. If voltage is OK, then you have a problem in either fuel or ignition system.

Battery light is on.wont hold a charge.starts after hooking up battery charger.thanks


If battery light is on while engine is running, then the charging system is bad. That is, you will need a new alternator. If the battery is a couple years old, you may have now stressed it a lot also. Expect it to show signs of failure too, quite soon if not already. First thing is to change out the alternator. Put the battery on charge for a while too. Then after new alternator, see if you have weak starting problems over next week or so.
