Even though my battery showed a good voltage it wouldn't crank the engine in my grand prix anymore. It wouldn't start with a jump box either. As soon as I put in a new battery it was fine.

SOURCE: new starter.new battery.all electrical works

there is not just one thing that can cause this problem. it could be in the ignition switch, it could be the wiring from switch to starter relay, could be the neutral safety switch. i can tell you a quick and dirty way to test this, have to be careful if you do it. put the vehicle in park, make sure it's in park, otherwise it will roll when you do this and you could get run over by your own vehicle. now you will need a set of jumper cables. make sure you can get to the hot side terminal of starter, one jumper cable contact has to go there. the other side has to go to hot (positive) side of battery. if when you tap the jumper cable to the hot side of starter the starter cranks just like it should then you have a wiring problem. if that's the result you get try jiggling the gear selector around and cranking ignition, or try starting it in neutral. if that makes a difference, if it cranks in neutral or if you move gear selector around when it's in park, then you probably have a bad neutral safety switch. if that doesn't make a difference but you are able to get it to crank by jumping straight from battery to starter then you have a wiring problem in ignition system. hope that helps

Try turning the motor by hand if it turns freely you still have starter problems, Make sure your battery is complete charged and all terminals are tight and clean.

About the only thing left would be the battery cables (assuming the starter solenoid was also tested). A corroded connection at the battery terminals or oiled-up connection at the starter is all it takes.

Another thought ... have you checked for voltage on the solenoid terminals to make sure the ignition switch is properly installed?

Car wont turn over, wouldnt jump start turn key in on position you get faint buzzing sound a slight click headlights are working, dashlights are fine


have the starter checked it may be your problem with the no turn over. it takes far less voltage to operate lights than it does to operate the starter.

WON'T START CONTINUOUS BUZZING FROM SOLENOID


Sounds like the battery is dead. You can try a jump start and see if the car will start. If it does I wouldn't have any issue with replacing the battery and see what happens. You can also measure battery voltage with a voltmeter. You should see 12 volts with the key off, on, or cranking. If the battery voltage is not 12 volts than it is dead or low on charge. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

My tahoe acts like it is going to start but wont like it isnt getting gas. i had pump replaced approx. a year ago


The pump could have still went out. Spray a little starter fluid in the throttle and have some to start it. If it starts keep spaying it a little to keep it running. If it cut off, then most likely the pump or filter need to be changed. Or a fuel pump relay keeping the pump from kicking on. Usually you can open your gas cap and have someone to just turn the ignition on while you listen at the gas hole for a faint or buzzing type sound. This is letting you know the pump is kicking on.
