More often than not, if it is warm outside, the car will start. When it doesn't, I hear a click when i turn the key. The lights and wipers work so the battery isn't dead. Sometimes if I let it sit a few hours, it will start. If I have some one jump me off, it will sart. If it rains, it generally will not start that day or the next day on its own, but will if someone gives me a boost.

I have the same problem, but sometimes my 92 Firebird starts ans other times it clicks when I try starting. I had the starter rebuilt and still have the same problem. Checked wires from battery to starter and it's intact. Any suggestions?
Switch on head lights or cabin light. If they doesn't come on or is weak, the battery is flat. Ensure that you switch off the lights. With ignition switched on, assuming the lights on the instrument panel cames on and your immobiliser is deactivated, turn ignition to start. You should hear the solenoid at the starter making a click sound. If not, the battery is flat or the starter solenoid is faulty. If it does make a click sound, the battery could be too low to turn the starter or the starter is faulty. Assuming the immobiliser is working correctly, and the starter tries to turn the engine but it doesn't want to turn, the gasket could be blown and the cylinder filled with water, or the engine could be seized. Hope it is not the last case. MarioCpt
the auto-transmission control linked to accelerator pedal might have changed its position.loosen the screw on the sliding lever,start the engine ,slowly slide the lever and once it started engaging set t/m about 900rpm.
I'd suggest you should turn on the ignition, and listen carefully to hear if the fuel pump (located in the fuel tank) runs for a couple of seconds. Providing you hear it run, it should start. If it doesn't run, perhaps it is faulty, or its relay may be faulty.
I'm not sure offhand where the relay is located. You may hear it click in and out when you turn the ignition on and off.
The pump should run briefly to ensure the fuel pressure is up.
