If it isn't just a matter of battery failure, remove and clean the battery terminal clamps and posts; negative first. If the problem still persists, remove the negative connection first, then locate the other end of that cable, remove and clean. Next, remove the positive cable from the starter and clean both mating parts before reattaching.
If you are still having the same problem, the starter itself is probably at fault. Most chain auto parts stores will check your starter for operation free but call them to find if it must be removed for testing. Rebuilt starters are generally reliable and cost much less than new with exchange of the defective unit.

Engine wont start with key can jump at starter it will crank but only run a few seconds.


Security system is activated, turn the car on, don't try to start it, make sure all other things are off. let it set for ten minutes, then turn it off, don't remove the key. Do this three times, on the third time turn it off then try to start the car. If you can't turn the lights off you will need to put a charger on the battery, because it will drain and not start your car.

Car wont start


IIf doesn't crank then problem with neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, starter or ignition switch. If cranks then could be bad crankshaft sensor, bad ignition coil pack, blown injector(s) but usually you will get a stall beforehand. Fuel pump could be dead, turn key to ON (not starting) and listen for a few second hum as it primes the fuel rail. Also check to see if check engine light comes on for a few second with key to ON, if not then not powering up due to shirt or bad. Possible but rarely the fuel filter is so clogged it no longer allows fuel, but usually will allow start after sitting.

Car wont turn over


if the security light comes on when you turn the key to the run position (just before you reach the start position) and doesnt go off after a few seconds it is a security system issue, which is real common on that vehicle, you would have to replace the ignition lock cylinder along with the passkey wiring, but if you just leave the key in the run position for like 20 minutes the light will turn off and you can turn the key forward and start the vehicle, YOU WILL HAVE TO DO THIS EVERYTIME YOU WANT TO START THE CAR. If the security light does not stay on for more than a few seconds your probably looking at a bad starter and its under the intake manifold so its real fun to change

The 3.8 series 2 engine doesnt turn over with the


sounds like it needs an ignition switch. the reason it dies after a few seconds after jumping the starter is bc the security system from gm thinks you're stealing the car so it kills the fire. the security system goes thru the key so if the switch is bad, it wont run no matter how you try to crank it

that sounds like you may need to replace the starter. the click you hear is the solenoid. the part that is just as important is the starter motor. unfortunately they are sold as one
