Yes it saounds like it so 1st thing to do is to check radiator coolant 2nd check engine oil (is it full) 3rd check gear box fluid if all ok then you have either the startes is jamed or a dead short
If any 1/2/3 have a no instead of a ok then let me know and we can sort it out from there

    Hi

    Ok so now turn on the head lights and then if up near a wall or something so you can see them ,,,,then turn the key to start now

    the lights will either goout or just dim down when you let the key up the lights will brighten up again,,,ok if they go out completly then either the battery is no good,, or the starter is no good so if lightsgo out keep key turned for3 seconds and then touch battery lugs if one is hot then 6 out 10 its the starter,, but try jump starting

96 Monte carlo z34 won't crank over unless I jump


Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

Probably going to be your ignition. Its the litytle box under your steering column with all the wires running to it. Check the fuses 1st to rule out the REAL easy fix but I'd put my $ on the ignition. Hope I could help. Good luck
