Check battery cables for tightness, make sure they are not corroded. If all is good, i would suspect a bad starter. Next time it gives you trouble, if you can access it from under hood or underneath, try tapping on it with a wrench or hammer while someone turns the key and see if that helps.

2009 pontiac montana won't start and the horn honks

Have a load test done on the battery as what you have said points top a bad battery cell. With the horn working the indication is that the voltage in the battery falls below that required for the alarm to work so it is reading it as someone stealing the battery and when you release the key the battery voltage is sufficient to turn the alarm back off.

Indicator lights for oil ABS, etc., won't turn off in 2000 Pontiac Montana. Tried the turn ignition on, push accessorator pedal to floor thing others had mentioned and it didn't help unfortunately. Any...

I really need to know exactly which lights are on. If it is the change oil in the information box then you turn the ignition switch on, push the gas pedal down fully 3 times, turn the ign off. Then start the car and if it does not come on, then it has been reset. Sometimes you have to do that several times before it will reset, not sure why. I'm not sure what you mean by ABS and etc.

2005 monatna makes clicking noise check engine light comes on and lights dim everything inside works,radio,seats,doors,etc but car wont crank

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

I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe (91,000 miles) that wouldn't start when I went out to go to run my next errand... just clicking sound when I turned the key. Just put a new serpentine belt on and everything...

Sounds like your battery might be low, A repeated clicking will indicate low battery, a single click would suggest really low battery or possibly starter motor bad.

Buzzy sound when right turning pontiac montana

This sound you speak of will not be transmission, nor RPM (Engine) related. It appears that your Power steering belt is either loose, or the PSP (Power Steering Pump Pressure Switch), may be bad. Is your Check Engine Light ever come on? When you say you're turning, the pressure supplied to the power steering system at low speeds is much greater than while driving down the Interstate. The only other "vibration or buzzing" noise would be coming from the rack and pinion assembly.

Have someone in the driver's seat with the parking brake on and engine started. With the vehicle on the ground, have them turn the steering wheel slowly through the full motions about three or four times. This purges the air (if there is any), from the power steering system. This also gives you the ability to "look" at the P/S Belt on right AND left turns to see as to whether your problem lays with air in the system or too much pressure.

By the way, NEVER use "Belt Dressing" on any of your belts. They sell the stuff, but it's just a quick fix to a belt sound. Use a round table candle to "lubricate your belts, for you probably already have a candle and it doesn't affect the belt or belt life.

Good Luck,
