Check wires to make sure they are secure on the starter, alternator and battery. Also check fusible links. Fusible links are fuses within the wire. These are usually found near the starter. It could be that the wires are brittle or broken and not making a good contact. Check to see how they look. You may want to use a voltmeter.

    Lets check grounds. Besure there is a ground from the battery to the body and the body to motor or motor to battery. There should be loops so that every part of the vehicle has a ground.

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

1993 pontiac grand prix wont start has battery but starter wont turn

First thing i would check is the security system. If the battery is good, and it feels like everything is normall except it just wont crank. It could be the security or the starter. Put your key in and try to start it, when it doesnt start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY this is a dead give away and you could find all the answers you may need on this link

My 93 pontiac grand prix keeps dyin mostly when it has a bunch electrical stuff on and then it doesn't wanna start

hi ,
your alternator is not producing enough current to supply all the power needed . I would start by testing the output of your alternator but getting a charged battery , hook it up to your car and turn the car on , turn the lights on only and see when you accelerate in neutral gear that the light become brighter . If this is the case your alternator is in good order .you then may have a short circuit somewhere or faulty earth which does need to be rectified by making sure all cables to the chassis are well tighten . If the light do not become brighter , your alternator is dead and need replacing .

1993 Grand Prix, 3.1 L Engine, when I start it up voltage regulator shows 12 volts , when I turn on the headlights it goes to 14 volts. I have checked the alternator & starter. Both ok.

Have your battery load tested to make sure it's OK...14volts is the high limit for charging...If reading dash gauge, it's better to use a volt meter directly connected to the battery to get more accurate readings. What is the voltage with headlights and heater turned on (should be no less than 13 volts) I suspect that your battery may be at the end of it's service life but accurate testing is necessary to verify this!!
