Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

My dad says the ignition switch maybe what's causing my 1994 Grand Prix not to start. The battery still has juice, and he says the starter is good, but maybe the starter relay isn't. What do you think? It makes no noise at all when I start my poor baby up.

Look on the dash for a light that says "security" when it doesn't start. It's very common on GM vehicles for the security system to shut down the starter if there is a mis communication in the security system. Look at this link for info and solutions that you can do yourself

I have a 2004 grand prix that won't start when the weather is cold outside. What can be wrong with the car. I have new battery starter etc. but it still won't start.

A much better thought is that the temperature sending unit is at fault and not telling the computer to go into cold start mode to put more fuel into the engine for cold start. Kin of like a choke on a carbureted engine. Have the temperature sending unit replaced and you can get started no problem.

1994 mercury grand marquis wont start even with a jump start there is nothing from the starter not even a sound.

Let's see if it is the solenoid, the starter, or the wiring. Let's start wit the wiring. Hook a small jumper wire to the big, fat terminal where the battery cable attaches to the starter solenoid. Touch it quickly to a ground and see if there is a spark. Better yet, find an old light bulb like a headlight that works, and use that for your tester. You should have juice to that big teminal on the starter. If it does, next go to the small wire on the starter solenoid that comes from the ignition switch. That wire should have juice only when you turn the key to start, no other time.
Supposing both of those do right, that indicates the problem is in the solenoid or starter.
You must remove the starter and dis-assemble it to see what is wrong, unless you choose to replace it with a new or used one.
The two most common causes of your type problem are burnt contacts inside the solenoid,or used-up carbon brushes inside the starter. Sometimes the armature is toasted inside also.
If the solenoid is only medium burnt, I have used sandpaper to clean contacts sometimes. Starter worn parts must be replaced. A shop should be able to test them for you.

2004 Pontiac grand prix gtp won't start- fully

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

1994 grand prix

i think in this case it may be a loose connection on the positive side or a ground strap. nine times out of ten for the solenoid not to activate indicates there is no voltage. disconnect the battery connections and clean. reconnect also make sure all your grounding straps are tight.if there still is no click from solenoid then your solenoid is faulty and it's a new starter you will need.
