Question about 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6
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.
