Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix
Just a faint buzz sound when i try to start it
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.

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

You may have to relearn the key to the ignition,turn the key on,and leave it ten minutes,then turn it off,and right back on,do this a total of three times,and thirty minutes,this should relearn the key to the ignition,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

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?
