Is the security light flashing? this happened to my mothers Grand Am 2004 in Jan 2010. WeTowed it to a dealer $500 later it was running. This week again same thing called tow truck the driver said he has seen this alot. he advised turn car to on for 15 to 30 min after security light stops flashing try and start car. It worked for my mothers car and saved us a tow and probably another $500.

Car not starting turn key nothing happens has power


There should be a starter relay under the hood in the fuse box, get someone to bump the key and listen for it to close the circuit. the description should say PCM/ECM/STARTER something along those lines. If it doesn't click you may want to swap it for another in the fuse panel and retry. Be sure to check the fuse for the start circuit. The starter circuit is control by a module so there is no direct wire from the ignition switch straight to the starter. If you hear it click then you may want to use a test light and check for voltage at the starter (small wire on solenoid) while someone else bumps the key.

Doesnt want to even attempt to start the battery is good


Try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone bumps the key. If it tries to turn replace starter if nothing happens then i would say the starter solenoid is probably bad.

1983 monte carlo 305cid when you turn the key to start absolutely nothing happens battery is new and good double checked that does not attempt to turn over nothing happens


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to check your ignition fuse in your fuse box. If the fuse is good, make sure the terminals ends on your battery wires are not loose. Make sure they are clean. If your battery connection is good and the battery as well, try changing the starter or starter solenoid. Once you find it, try hitting it a few times to see if it will start. Since the battery connection and battery is good at this point, change the starter. Make sure all the wires to the starter are connected. When working on the starter, make sure you take the battery terminals off.

My P11 1998 Nissan Primera Si 1600 twincam developed a fault one morning. It wouldn't start on the battery, but would bump start. Long story short: bumped the car to start it, and left it running to charge...


I would check the fuses first to make sure you didnt blow any out from all the battery change, jump starting, bump starting etc. Not sure if your battery was dead originally with the fault showing. You may have a bad alternator. Usually when the fault light comes on you can still drive on the battery for a distance, then the battery will drain/die.

Your system is very complex and requires troubleshooting by an expert. I would trace the start signal from the switch then out of the bcm to the starter relay. See diagram below. I would also trace power from the park/neutral fuse thru the park/neutral switch.
