If you have a voltmeter you can taety the battery voltage at the terninals. Harbor Freight selld volt meters for less than 5 dolars.

You can take the battery to Autozone and they will yest it for free. They may need to chatge it first.

If the Battery is dead you will first need to determine if it is any good. If it tests O.K. then you need to determine why it went dead.

This would require a test of the charging system

Why wont my 2000 grand prix run without keeping foot on gas pedal


Check the following as similar happened with my daughter's 2000 Cavalier. Turned out one of the short little rubber vacuum hoses (to do with the intake manifold functioning correctly) had deteriorated (rotted and cracked open), changing the fuel/air mix. Now that short hose was long enough that I was able to pare it back to 'useable'. I re-fitted and... problem solved. Take a look and I hope your problem be the exact same.

if you turn on the key and lay down on the ground by the gas tank, you should be able to hear the fuel pump come on. if you dont hear it come on, that could be your problem.
