This vehicle has a starter / solenoid assembly.First I would check to see if the wire on the "I" terminal fell off the solenoid - if not, then you may be able to tap on the solenoid which is the small canister looking thing attached to the starter while somebody turns the key - BE READY FOR THE ENGINE TO START AND MAKE SURE YOUR CLOTHING WILL NOT GET CAUGHT UP INTO THE ENGINE!! Naturally, they don't make it easy to reach the starter so you may wind up using a long prybar or socket extension to reach the solenoid. Don't tap too hard as you may poke through the casing.
Hope this helps!

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

I have the same problem with my 2008 Grand Prix - replaced the batteries in both key fobs - they worked for a few days and quit working. Remote start does not work and both of the cigarette lighter chargers do not work either. I have recieved a "charging system failure" message on the readout screen as well. I have checked with 2 different mechanics and they are not sure what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Car will not start


Double check the positive connection at the battery. Check both but pay attention to the positive. These batteries have a problem with the terminal working loose from the inside and causing exactly this issue. This uses a 8mm or 5/16" wrench(which ever you can find first, or pliers if no wrenches). Make sure both are tight. If both are tight, remove the battery and most autoparts stores will test them free of charge and replace as necessary. Let me know if you need anything else.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

Car wont start 2002 pontiac grand prix


You must have a nearly dead battery, have it jumped then go to a Kragen and have them test the battery and the charging system for a fault. This is FREE!
