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.

Insert ignition key,turn forwards to run. Just till red lights & theft/alarm light goes on. Do not try to start or engage starter.Leave on till light stops flashing. It may take up to 10 minutes. Once light stops flashing turn key off. Then start car & let run for awhile.

How do I turn off the seatbelt chime on a pontiac grand prix 2008?


I only know of 2 possibbilities. You should find a find a wire connector under the drivers seat that will disable the alarm if unplugged. It will just have 2 wires. The other is to replace the radio with a non-standard one that has no module in it that rings the chime. You can raise the noise level by holding in the 6 button on the radio preset while turning the key on (without starting), ut I don't think you can turn it down...might be worth a try. Please do wear your seatbelt.
Hope this helps.

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...


if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

Starter clicks rapidly, not cranking, no ignition


It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.
