Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

3 Answers

2001 Pontiac Grand Am wont start.

My car wont start. When I try it sounds like a ticking so I thought it might be my starter or flywheel; however, when I shut it completely off it rumbles, sort of like a humming sound? I was told check the fuel filter and pump. The battery is working fine, all juice to lights, radio etc...right now. What are your thoughts? Thank you for your help in advance.

Check out the starter for loose connections or bolts. Remove the starter have it bench tested. Also remove battery have checked, may be a dead cell in battery.

2000 pontiac grand prix starter will not disengage after starting and keeps trying to start with ignition turned off


You either have a defective starter drive or the flywheel has damage teeth. Remove the starter and inspect it and the flywheel.

2001 pontatic grand am 3.4 new battery and alternator .car not starting.also battery terminals are getting hot


Sounds like a bad starter to me....the clicking ...sounds like the solenoid is throwing the drive gear out of the starter engaging the flywheel, but not sending power to the motor itself to turn the engine over.The battery getting hot suggest a "stuck or shorted" starter motor. The starter is a two step process.
Of course the extreme end could be a seized engine. Try turning the engine by hand at the crank ballancer bolt [clockwise only,battery disconnected] and see if it turns freely.

2004 pontiac grand prix wont start..lights are bright and work fine. I just hear a buzzing sound when trying to start..


This sounds like either the starter or starter solenoid is bad. You can take the starter off and take it to O'riely's or Autozone. And they will check the starter and solenoid for free. The solenoid is attached to the starter.

Thought I had a dead battery but it does start after 5-15 attempts. Just a 'tick' sound until it finally catches. Is this the starter?


Yes it ticks when battery can not turn the starter

just replace starter But charge your battery since it has been worked very hard

Car will not crank


Check battery voltage should be 12v. Have battery load tested. If good recharge, then with a voltmeter across battery terminals try to start engine. If battery voltage drops below 9.5v starter has failed.

Car is ticking and will not start


Hi deeweave,
My name is Dennis and I can be of assistance.
The ticking (clicking) sound is the starter solenoid clicking to complete (close) the starter electrical circuit and to insert the starter pinion in the flywheel ring gear but the starter motor does not have enough amperage available to turn the starter motor.
All this to say you have corroded battery terminals. I know this sounds stupid but think about it, The battery circuit as enough current to power the radio but not the higher current demands like head lights when you use the seat motor at the same time. Clean the battery terminals of resistance causing corrosion and the car will start and your other ignition problems will go away also. AFTER they are clean REATTACH them and cover them with a light coating of grease to keep the oxygen off and they will corrode less.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.
Thank you
Dennis
