Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Hello. I have a Pontiac Sunfire 1999. The battery is OK. When I turn the ignition key into the start position, the starter does not work, does not make a sound, nothing... only a bit of noise from the dashboard... The battery was changed 6 months ago as well as the alternator. The starter was changed 1 1/2 year ago.... What can I do?

Hi I have a 1999 pontiac sunfire im having trouble starting it when i turn the key the starter dosent seem to be engaging and the motor does not turn over ive bump started it and the car runs fine im just...


Hi there skate4life! The two thing that could be causing this is the starter or the ignition switch in the steering column. If you have a test light turn the ignition switch to the "on" position then test the hot wire on the starter. If it lights up the starter is bad. If it doesnt light up it means that the ignitions switch is bad and is not sending power to the starter. i hope that this sheds some light on your situation. Please leave positive feedback if this solution helps.

Have a good day!

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the


The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.

Car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down


Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
