Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

My car (2005 Grand Am) was working fine I turned it off ran into the house for 5 minutes and now it does not start now. 1. Got it jumped would not turn over, however the power (lights, radio, horn, interior lights, and locks work) 2. Once unhooked from the other car power drained and some things stopped working again. What could be wrong with my car and does the fact that I have a remote start matter?

Check your battery cable connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Is it the original battery? If so, it is time to replace it. Pull it out and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. The remote starter could possibly be a problem, but check out the battery 1st.

On our 2005 Grand Prix, the key is stuck in ignition, after battery ran down, was recharged, now won't start. I suspect fuel relay needs reset, where is it? Car would run before battery ran down. I need to...

Hello! It sounds like you're having a fairly common issue, and one that you should be able to remedy - on your own; in about 30 minutes! :)

First - I'm not sure if you're having the problem where your key is not only stuck, but also won't turn...if so, then follow these steps to be able to turn the key. If you can turn the key, ignore these steps. :)
- On the bottom of the steering wheel - you will see a small, circular cap - using a small flat blad screwdriver, pry that cap off.
- Inside the hole there is a switch that you need to push up on with the screwdriver, and while doing so - you will then be able to turn the key.

Now - once you have done this - you need to reset or "relearn" the security system. Here's how:

1.) Turn the key to the "ON" position, then attempt to start. Car will not start.
2.) On your instrument cluster, you should now see the security light flashing. Leave the car on, and wait approximately ten minutes or until that security light stops flashing. (NOTE: if it doesn't stop flashing after about 10 minutes, turn the key to "OFF", disconnect the battery cables for 10 minutes, reconnect, and restart procedure at Step 1)
3.) Turn ignition to off. Wait five seconds.
4.) Repeat steps 1-3 two more times, for a total of 30 minutes.
5.) The PCM is now ready to learn the security system2.gif on the next crank. Turn the car to off, then attempt to start. Your car should start at this time. I would then start the car with all other keys that you have for that vehicle to ensure that they are all working.

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

If you jump-started it and ran it for five minutes then it started fine, it's not the alternator. I would get an ammeter and check the current drain when everything is off (as it would be when the car is locked, armed, etc). I can't remember the exact figure I was once told, but it was of the order of 0.2 Amp (200mA). More than this, and batteries start getting drained progressively faster. The last car I had with this problem turned out to have a huge amplifier (sound system) that wasn't being switched off by the ignition or the stereo unit. Don't know how much it was drawing, but a cut-out feature on the ammeter saved it from having a meltdown.
