    They are looking at you funny because it doesn't have a cold start solenoid. Do you have this problem when you restart it warm, start it cold, or both?

Sounds like you may have a bad check valve in the fuel pump allowing the fuel to return to the tank. You can do a fuel pressure test and see if the system is holding fuel pressure when the vehicle is shut off, by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to the test port on the fuel rail. I would also check and see if the fuel filter has been replaced lately.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

2004 Pontiac grand prix gtp won't start- fully

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.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. Can an oxygen sensor that needs replacing keep the remote start from working?

The only way it can keep your remote starter from working is if is really hard to start to begin with.
If you manually start the car right up, then no, It wouldnt be the oxygen sensor.

Hope I was of assistance to you

My 1994 pontiac grand prix was running fine , i stopped at home and when i went to leave the car started but the stalled out!! I then tried to start it again and it barely turns over but will not start!

Not an expert by any means, but I had a similar problem.
Everything was fine until one morning (it was a bit chilly out in my defense) I used my remote starter to warm up the car before leaving.
I forgot I had used the remote and hit the brake to shift into drive. Engine stopped (obviously with no keys in it!). I thought I could just put the keys in and go, but ignition would not catch.
I've actually made that mistake a few times before, but that day, for the first time ever, it prevented the engine from starting for a good 2 hrs.
Really was no solution. I just let it sit and kept trying every 30m or so with both the key and remote starter. The remote starter finally got it going again and this time I followed the instructions (put key in and turned to "On" position).
Since then, it has started up as usual.
