Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
Serviced station couldn't find anything wrong. It always started for them.
'99 to 2005's had a problem w/ the #18 fuse block becoming loose. Should say on the cover that it goes to the fuel pump. Pull it out, polish the contacts, and bend them slightly when reinserting. This should make for a much better contact. Nice thing is, if that doesn't work, no cost to you. Repost if a failure w/ more info on weather and time before it restarted.

I have had issues with the security system being triggered which will put car in theft lock mode. Chances are that if you replace the ignition switch and key the problem will be fixed. Gurch.

SOURCE: Car won't start
Please try visual check under hood confirms no obvious failures like missing drive belt or disconnected electric wires, blown fuse... check for any sensor failure in the car or blocked fuel system in the car which is creating this problem ...
Please use this link its the service manual of the car:

SOURCE: pontiac aztek awd disabled
Mine does this same thing...After taking it to the dealer and paying lots of money I found the solution my self while changing the Driver Side tire. Look behind the tire there should be a little plug for the abs if it comes un plugged in any way or loose then it will disable the AWD. Worked for me hope this works..

From the sounds of it check whats called your vehicles drive gear linkage. It's what tells the car it's in gears of neutral, drive, reverse etc,..
When the linkage isn't set proper the ignition sequence doesn't know if the car is really in park, neutral, drive or reverse and won't start it via that minor adjustment.

I had a Grand Am ( a little older) and it did the same thing. My grandfather diagnosed the problem for me after I had been dealing with it for about 2 months because his chevy started doing the same thing. In my case (and his) there was a fuel relay electrical line and it had a connector just under the drivers seat (on the bottom of the car) It was a Clear/White rectangle about 1.5 inch by 1 inch and a rock had hit it, so it cracked the casing, anytime it wanted to (driving or not) it would lose the connection and the car would either stop running or not start. I would check that connector first especially if its worse when there is moisture in the air or its below 20 degrees when it happens.
