Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE (3400) - stopped to fill with gas after running 3 hours in 100+ las Vegas heat. Vehicle would not start. All electrical functioned fine, but starter would not even engage.Tried to jump, but same result. Checked fuses and cable, all seemed in good order.Having towed it home, I went to wor on it this am., but it started right up. Want to avoid this occurrance in the future!!!
Need a little clarification to help. When you say the starter would not engage, do you mean it made no noise and didn't spin? I assume this is what you are talking about. Can be a few items. It may be the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission), wiring or the starter. Probably the starter has a dead spot and needs to be replaced. You can try and tap the side of the starter with a hammer and see if that works (if it does replace the starter) Modern starters come with the solenoid attached. Hope that helps. Can help more with a lttile more info.
