2005 montana My van will not turn over. The lights are strong along with everything else and the van just clicks but will not even start to turn over. I have tried to jump-start the van as well but this does not work either. Do you know what the problem might be?

Check the battery to be sure that it is delivering 12 volts.then check again with your headlights on to see if the battery retains 12 volts without descending rapidly(load test}.if it retains the voltage then check the connectins between the battery and srarter to make sure they are clean and secure.if this checks out alright then the problem probably lies with the starter or the starter relay if you have one.change relay first and try..if not i would go for the starter.nb.the car will not start if you have less than 11.5 volts as the computer reads the voltage before startup and if 11.5 is not present you will get the clicking sound.

I used to have this problem with my 97 Bonnieville. The solution was to remove the battery bolt (it used an internal bolt that screws into the battery, as opposed to a clamp that would clamp around a standard battery "post".)

You may have this problem. Try to remove the battery cable from the battery, and clean the metal on the battery and the cable ends. Retighten to the battery, and try again. You can use a wire brush to accomplish this. Be careful of battery acid, and wear gloves.

I use dielectric grease coating on the battery connection to prevent this.

Good Luck!

It is probably your starter. If it doesn't make a noise when you turn it, starter. Check fuses as well.

My 2003 Pontiac Montana van is a 6cylinder the larger of the montana's and I went to start it today it made a click noise after I turned the key not while I was turning the key,and the interior lights...


Perfect example of a dead battery. When they go, they go quickly. The plates shed material very gradually over the years. When that material piles up high enough in the bottom of the battery, the battery short-circuits itself--even if it started the car just fine ten minutes prior. Jump start the engine to get home or to the auto parts store. The alternator will supply the power to keep the engine running. (Don't turn off the engine 'til you're back home!)
