Could be issue with ignition switch or security system? If the starter motor won't crank, check voltage circuits at the starter. Usually two voltage circuits, one is battery voltage, hot all the time. The other voltage comes from crank position of ignition switch. That circuit could be routed through the neutral switch or clutch switch, depending on your tranny.

Any testing at starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

SOURCE: 2001 pontiac sunfire wont start

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

Question again on my 2002 Grand Prix GT. The electric issue is still going on. Now, it has started "not starting" yet intermittently. It'll take a few turns of the key to start and sometimes it starts


The generic advice is to clean and tighten all the connections to the starter. If that doesn't help, then the problem would be in the starter.

Plenty of power turn key car just clicks 1999 pontiac grand prix


have you checked power and signal at the starter motor, the large wire @ the starter will have battery voltage at all times and the smaller "signal wire" will have power only when the ignition cylinder is being cranked, if both ok then you will have a stuck/seized solenoid on the starter . lightly tapping the starter motor while "cranking " will sometimes allow the vehicle to start.

My 2002 dodge caravan wont start i turn the key and nothing


Start by cleaning battery terminals try to start if headlights are bright and nothing check the starter relay by the fuses stick the same type from another circuit or a spare one where it says spare. Try to start if the lights are bright hit the starter with a hammer a few times while someone has the key turned if it starts you need a new starter. If lights go out recharge battery or replace battery

Pontiac grand am se 2002 won't turn over and


my pontiac did the same thing and all i had to do was replace the 40amp fuse. you can have someone turning the key while you hit the starter from underneath, if it starts then you need a new starter, if it dont then no, its something else. mine did the exact same thing and it was the 40amp fuse under the hod.

We have a 2002 Grand Cherokee that we have just bought. Dealer installed a brand new battery because of sluggish starts. In a week the battery is acting weak again, sometimes it starts fine, other times...


I was having the same issue with my 95 GMC. I replaced the battery and alternator. It would start fine at times, at other times it would be sluggish. I finally took the starter off and had it checked. Turns out the starter was bad. When it would get hot, it would act as though the battery was dead. Replaced the starter and it has not acted up again. Have the starter checked. Replace if bad.

2001 pontiac grand am will not turn over it is not the battry or starter because i can jump around the key switch on the starter and it turns over but will not start?


Sounds like an anti-theft system problem. When trying to start it look at the security lamp and see if it is on while cranking. If it is you will need a new key. Also try checking any fuses marked IGN for ignition.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan does not start


could be the starter but could also be a relay that is not working properly. the relays are under the hood. you would have to have someone under the hood and someone turning the key at the same time to see if the relay is working. if it works every time you turn the key then its probably the starter.

My 2002 jeep grand cherokee won't start


Try going to the starter and check for battery power on the larger wire from the battery if that has power have some one sit in the truck and hold the key in the start position and check for battery power on the smaller wire if this has power the starter is junk try and tap it with a hammer some thimes they will start
