This click sound is a defective starter solenoid main electrical contacts, don't be fooled by a starter test, this problem can only be caused by the contacts, replace the starter solenoid.

If you know for sure that the starter is ok you need to check the relay and the ignition switch.

SOURCE: Same 1991 w/starting problem

open the door and listen for a click from under the car (starter solenoid). If you hear that click, along with the one coming from
the glove compsartment(starter relay), it's the wire between the starter solenoid and the relay...If you only hear the one click from the glove compartment( it's actually in the passengers door pillar), it's the starter relay ($15)

From what you describe it appears that the battery is drained. Jump it to start the engine then measure it's voltage - in a normal functioning case it should have 14,2 to 14.5 volts. If you have lower than that the alternator has failed and it will have to be replaced.
If the voltage is correct then you have a hidden consumer or a short: stop the motor , disconnect the plus cable on the battery and put an ohmmeter to it to measure the resistance between it and the body of the car. Then start disconnection every cable that is attached to it until you find the only one that has a low resistance. Start with the cable that powers the starter, it's usually the one that fails first.

Car will not start. Dash lights come up when key is turned, but are dim. When turning the key, there is no sound or click. Battery was tested at and confirmed to be fully charged. What is wrong?


Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid or starting relay, whichever the car uses.
Hope this helps.

Self start problem


Your starting problem may be battery charge level. Take buy a auto parts store, most will measure the battery charge condition and may recommend a new battery, They will also measure the status of the charging system, which if not adequate, will contribute to the poor battery charge and starting problem. If the battery condition is good or very good, you may have a Starter solenoid or starter and solenoid problem.

My grand am wont start. when i try to crank it turns over slowly without ever starting, which turns into to like a grinding sound that gets slower and slower until i am left with just a click click click...


Dear Sir,
As you said when you try to start sound come and end it with a click click sound it clearly symptoms that battery low and as you said light are also dim, if you charged battery same problem you have, then check wire which run from battery to starter is lose or not and 2nd wire which runs from battery to body ground if both are ok, then sir it is problem in starter motor armature is short with body, replace that or better replace full starter assay.
