The first thing is to make sure the battery is fully charged, the battery connections should be removed and clean then reinstall and tighten them,this may be caused by dirty or loose battery connections, also to be on the safe side have the charging system checked. hope this helps.

what happened when you tried jumping the car? sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch since only non-switched things work.

The battery is good but it wont start


It may be the solenoid (electro-magnetic clamp) that engages the starter motor with the flywheel to start the car. Unfortunately, this usually involves replacing the entire starter.

Car was rinning perfect. One day it would not start. there was nothing, no clicking ,bell and guages were working. Jump start was nothing. Installed a new battery there was nothing. Went bact back 2 hours...


It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

hi this sounds more like you have a flat battery, try getting a jump start from someone and see if that does the trick, if it is the battery you will have to find out why it went flat...hope this helps

I just went out to start my car, and the key turns but nothing happens except the dashboard lights come on. No turn over, no noise.....


It sounds like you ignition switch went out. I had this happen to my wife a few years ago you turn the key the acceseries turn on but nothing else. this will be a trip to the dealer. did you happen to smell something electrical burning the last time you car was working if so it is the starter switch. you will need to take it to the deales an get a ne w switch which will also involve new keys$$$

2006 hard starting will not stay running, then no power at all.


What happens when you turn the key?... is there a clicking or clunking noise?... try tapping the starter and the solenoid that is attached to the starter and see if that helps. It may help if you have someone else turn the key while you tap on the starter and solenoid.
