When you turn the key to start does the starter engage an spin the engine ? or nothing happens .
the lights and music come on but the motor will not start when I turn the key ??????? Will not start how ?
crank - no - start or no crank no start . ????????
check to see if the computer is grounding that circuit for the bulb check when the key is turned on. you should have battery voltgage to the light and the computer grounds the circuit for 2 seconds when key is turn to run position.
PARK SWITCH ------ STARTER RELAY-------- IGNITION FUSE
TRY SHIFTING IN NUTRAL TO START
SEE IF GROUND WIRE TO MOTOR AND BODY AS GOOD CONTACT
DOES POWER TO SIGNAL WIRE OF SELENOIDE ON STARTER COMES LIVE
WHEN TURNING KEY TO START
IS THE SECURITY LIGHT FLASHING IN DASH
this could be a few things fuel pump getting weak or your alarm could of activated itself and it disables the fuel to the engine, I would try reseting the built in alarm system. first put the key in the ignition and turn on till all the lights come on and let it sit 10 minutes with the key on, then after the 10 minutes is over turn the key to the off position and wait 3 seconds and then try to start. if it starts which is possible because grand ams and olds aleros are bad for the security system locking up by them self. Hope this helps.
Ignition key had to insert lately?
Car starts and runs excellent, EXCEPT, when it frequently...
After ignition starts...
A: Brake and Air Bag Lights come on.
B:Tranny SCREAMS only IN park OR neutral.
C: NO A.C or FAN, blinkers, Power windows, radio, mirror motors, YET locks, lights and Engine work EXCELLENT!
SOLUTION: Wiggle forward and back THE IGNITION key!
BAD IGNITION SWITCH!
The security in the car is what they call "Passlock" and the security is built into the instrument cluster and the key must be relearned, to do this you will have to turn the key to the run posistion without starting it for about 10-15 minutes you may want to put a battery charger on the car so it doesnt kill the battery, and make sure that all the accesories are turned off for ex. the radio, blower motor ect. and make sure the door is kept close. After the time is up turn the key off and then start the car and that should do it.
I have this problem right now also. Here is the deal as I see it. I have a 97 Saturn SC2 automatic (nuuf said!). Against my intuition I let the guy at Autozone talk me into a battery, though I suspected the solinoid or the starter motor itself. Put in the new batt and nothing but a single loud click. I took the new battery back and used the refund money to get a new starter. I put it in and still just a loud click. I have cleaned the terminals and torqued the cable at the batt and starter.Because the solinoid clicks when I turn the key I am asuming (for now) that the ignition switch, neutral saftey switch and the "Startguard" (the little electric key you have to put in for your car to start) is good. In my knowlege, it has to be the main battery cable that runs from the battery to the starter. Next I'm gonna go out there and turn my key to the on position and connect a jumper cable from the battery directly to the starter solinoids high current side to confirm or bust my suspicion of the bad positive (red) battery cable. I will let you know how it goes.
