Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I turn the key in the ignition, dash lights all, 92 grand prix le

I turn the key in the ignition, dash lights all light up but car wont start. It does not even sound like the car is kicking over.

Also, separate problem, the windows will not roll down on the driver side, but i hear a clicking noise with the motor. Like a ticking noise, what could be wrong with the window. On Passenger side, window will roll down but seems to fall off track. Any ideas, I am clueless about cars so i am not too sure

    Thank you for your reply and advice!



    I checked the battery this morning with my meter and found that the voltage was 12.2 Volts. I assume that the battery is still good, but maybe having a starter problem or alternator problem. But my knowledge is limited so maybe you could help me out in that regards.



    I will check into a regulator for the window. Again, thank you for your advice, it has been helpful!

Problem number one sounds like a dead battery to me. Problem with driver door is the cable in your window regulator is broken and bound up. Will need to replace the regulator. Passenger side window problem could be caused by a number of things... most common that come to mind are window guide not in correct position or one of the bolts that hold the window to the regulator has come loose.

    No problem. I would put the battery on a charger on low 2 amp charge all night. Next day, remove battery charger. Then have someone turn the key as to try and start the car while you tap on the starter with a hammer. You may have to use a prybar to reach the starter solenoid. Corrosion builds up on the starter contacts over time and creates a resistance too high for the voltage to overcome to start your car. If the car rolls over as you are tapping the starter then replace the starter.

1999 grand prix lights works but wont start. hear one click behind dash when i turn the key to start it.


If you are saying the engine will not crank, try it in neutral instead of park.
The neutral safety switch could be faulty, or you could have a problem with the starter solenoid on the starter.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Ignation wont start


If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

Car turns over but does not start


89 Grand Prix
I had a similar problem with starting the car. My ignition Switch was somewhat broken. The key to switch connection became compromised inside the switch on the steering column and it wouldn't turn. My mechanic put a button ignition switch under the dash. No more problems. Also If the firewall gets wet it can cause a short in the ignition and it wont start until it dries. Always check the integrity of your gaskets. especially the gaskets on the firewalland around the windshield wiper base on the driver side! Good Luck! Ree.
