Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
Started my car yesterday, drove to the gas station, put gas in, and tried to start it back up and was completely dead! Tried to jump start it, but, only made clicking sounds. Tried several times, and at times it sounded like it was trying to turn over, but wouldn't. Cleaned the cable connections to the battery, tightened them, and still nothing. All the dash lights will come on, but, only makes clicking noise, and sometimes tries to turn over with a little bit of a chugging sound. Also, whenever I run the air conditioning, the floor boards flood with water!
Get a new battery. The battery seems to be too drained of power. It will still light the dash but does not have enough power to turn the starter.Of course, before buying the battery, have it tested. Probably has a dead cell.
On the air conditioner, it seems you may have the condenser drain hose pulled out of the dash hole that leads to the outside and the water that condenses goes into the car instead of to the street. Of course, it also could be that the plastic housing is cracked and the water leaks out through that.
