2000 Pontiac Montana wont start, no power to vehicle

I suspect an ignition switch problem, you need to check to see if when you try to start it if there is power to the signal wire at the starter. If there isn't, check the same wire at the ignition switch, if there still is no power, check to make sure the grounds from the firewall are secure and they have near zero resistance between the firewall and the negative battery post. Check to make sure there is power getting to the ignition switch, if there is none, then you have a broken fusible link under the hood

2000 pontiac montana Occasionaly, when turning the key to start, it will be dead dash lights will illuminate, but no life to engine to start it What's up?

check starter wiring for loose nuts, bad connetion. n what not. clean up terminals if needed n see if it turns over if not. check for power coming frm the yellow wire, or the smaller one. with the key held in start position, in no power you will need a starter solinoid. if you do have power go grab a starter n put it in,

How much work is involved to install a car starter on a 2000 Pontiac Montana?

un-plug the ground side of the battery then

jack up vehicle and support it with stands.the starter is on the front of the engine,there are two bolts that hold the starter will need a 15mm socket to remove the bolts. you will also need a 13mm socket to remove the power wire off the back of the starter.then there is one more wire you will need to remove and its an 8mm.just do the reverse to install it
takes about 30 min.if you have never taken one off may take an hr.

Pontiac Montana starting problem

All 4 power wires go together on the large center stud on the solenoid.
The purple wire goes on the small stud.
The purple wire supplys the trigger signal when the key is turned to the start position.Since your solenoid is clicking when the key is turned to start this is working properly.
I would check battery connections and then check power connections on solenoid again.Make sure all connections are clean and tight.

Battery good, wont turn over, just a click when try to start

it is most likley starter relay or starter.with vehicle in park and e-brake on have someone tap on the starter with hammer while your trying to start.if starter starts to crank then you know the starter is on the way out.if starter does not crank it may already be shot.srarter relay is on fire wall check power + ground.
