Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
Worn down copper contact plates in the starter motor. The contact plates can be replaced with new ones for about $6. You will need to get the motor out and take the end of it off to access the contact plates. The two contact plates are bolted on so it is just a matter of unbolting them and and using the same bolts substitute them with the new ones. While you are doing this job put your battery on a charger so that when you are completed you are ready to kick some new life into the old beast. Do not oil any of the parts inside the starter motor assembly it only encourages dirt to stick to everything and before long the starter will fail completely.
