Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
My name is David i'll be helping you with your problem:
#1) You said you Tested your Starter,OK If your starter is showing it has 12 -12.6 Volts then you do have a Fully charged Battery.
#2) Also to test the battery properly you need to Load test it ,with a Battery tester that you can Put the specified load on it. Cold Cranking Amps. that your battery indicates on the sticker on battery.
#3) Turn on your Head Lights, if battery is fully charged your head lights should be very Bright. If not.
#4) Next step make sure your Battery cables are Very Clean & Free of any Corrosion,also make sure NO corrosion is underneath the Battery Cables Insulation,To Check just take a Knife cut about 2 inches back from cable clamps and look for Acid build up Under that Area.(Blueish/Green & white) sometimes.
#5) If you see some corrosion replace the Cable or cables.
#6) Next you'll need to check is your starter relay.its located in your fuse block ,inside under dash/or its under your Hood in the Fuse and Relay box.Its about a inch square and has 4- Terminals (Plugs) on it. It should be labeled starter relay.
#7) Its only about a $10-$15 part.I would take it to your local auto parts they can check it there with a OHM meter for resistance.
#8) if all the Above checks out as Good,then check ALL your Wiring connections on your Starter.if they are all still good and tight and Clean.
#9) if All above checks out Good the only thing it could be is your Ignition Switch .Located on your Steering Column.
i'm sure these step by step solutions will find your problem and get you back on the road.
