Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

1 Answer

When I turn the key to my car, it sometimes doesn't start, or takes several tries. It turns, there's battery, but it sounds like it is about to start and doesn't or if I put on the gas, like it is in overdrive and then goes quiet.

Drive it to a shop and have them check the battery and charging system and starter. It only takes a few minutes to test these.

My mazda mpv has trouble starting


Not sure what you are describing as the sound, but it could be a faulty starter. Sometimes the brushes in the starter stick and you have to "bump" the starter to get them to make contact.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter.

What is located in the glovebox of 2003 Kia Sodona that makes a click sound when trying to start?


There are several relays located in that area...it doesn't matter because the relays are probably not the cause of tyour vehicle not starting. If they are clicking, it can only be because they are working - or at least, TRYING to work.
It sounds to me like you need to check the condition of your battery and battery cable connections.

My 2004 silverado crewcab battery went dead and was replaced. The Air conditioning system now only blows through the defrost vents and the dial to change the airflow does not work. Can this be reset?


Turn the key on and make sure the blower motor is working. It doesn't matter what speed. Turn the key off. Pull the hvac1 fuse out of the under hood fuse box. Wait five minutes. Reinstall the fuse. Turn the key on, do not start the engine or touch the heater controls. You should hear the heat swiping through the different modes. After a couple of minutes it should stop. Turn the key off then start the vehicle. It may take several tries but eventually it should recalibrate.

This is a common problem and easily solved you need to get the starter motor replaced this isnt expensive to do and will only take couple of hours.
If you have never done one before then leave it to the experts ok.

Won't start sometimes


Hmm, sounds like starter. Next time it will not start, don't hold the key for almost a minute. Try turning the key several times if no luck, grabb a hammer and LIGHTLY tap on starter. If it turns over normally then, starter is going out.
