Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

1997 Grand Am 3.1

When trying to start this car, only the dash lights come. the car will not turn over. I hear a bunch of different clicks coming from all over under the hood. I tried to arc the starter relay and it did not spark. When you push the ignition switch in with out the key in it, it starts dinging.

At the starter, check the fusible links. It really sounds like the starter had quit on you though. The solonoid which is connected to the starter has quit working. the starter and solonoid are 1 unit. Definitely do some shopping for this part at the different part stores in your area, prices vary. Hope this helps.

I am having issues with my 1997 Chevy Monte Carlos. The engine will not start, however the radio, head lamps, and dash board lights all come on. In your expert opinion what do you think the problem...


if you just hear a clicking when trying to start the car charge the battery to full, all of the items you listed will work with a low battery , but it doesn't have high enough amps to turn over the car .

My autoheadlight system and blowerfan wont come on


Certain circuits go through the ignition switch and sometimes the points in the switch become gummed up with carbon. The easiest fix is to replace the ignition switch. The switch can, however, be disassembled and cleaned by a skilled mechanic (there are many small springs and parts that have to be assembled properly).

Long story short, replace the ignition switch.

Try checking the starter solenoid wires.Make sure the wire hasnt come loose and the battery to solenoid cable is tight.

Oil light


Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.
