would check the crank sensoe 2 c if it is pulsating.
For an engine to run, you need air, fuel and a spark. 1)Check to see if you have spark at the end of one of the spark plug wires. 2)To check for fuel, turn the key to the ON position but do not start. The fuel pump will run about 2 secs and then shut off. You should hear a buzzing type sound coming from the back of the car.
I had a problem with my 97 grand am not starting. It would turn over but it was acting like it didn't get any gas. I had to leave the key on for 10 minutes to reset the anti theft system. I found that out after changing the fuel filter and part of the fuel line.
My Son's 2001 Grand Am had the same problem. Did the 'leave ignition switch turned on for 10 minutes' It worked. Changed the fuel filter, and tested the fuel pump that was ok. The Throttle Body Carb would not let any gas in till we did the 10 reset. Thanks
check the crankshaft sensor
Check for spark at the plugs. Check to see if there is fuel pressure. If both of these are ok check ignition timing.
Check the 2001 Grand Ams crank shaft position sensor first. If the sensor is bad then the engine will not get fire or start.
Check for sparkCheck for fuel
check your crankshaft sensor or the auto shutdown relay
When you say it won't start, are you referring to the grand am won't turn over as in it's dead or are you asking what's wrong when it does turn over but won't start?
I changed oil on my suzuki grand vitara and it would not start up
Your car well not start it will turn over but not start. If it is just having problems starting it may be a bad check valve.
security lock out had same problem with our 2004 grand am
Check for fuelCheck for spark
A few quick things to check- If it does NOT "crank over": Check the battery and cables. Check the in-line fuses. If it does "crank over", but does not start: Check the distributer, spark plugs and wires. Check the air and fuel filters.
if it does not turn over and no clicking noise but headlights on, check start fuse and relay if it doesnt turn over and clicks probable starter solenoid
yo man check the spark if that's not the check firing order that's where i would start
Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch.AnswerIgnition switch or starter.
Check your fuel filter
check the distributor
Check for fuel Check for spark
Check for spark Check for fuel
Check fuel Check spark
check if it is getting fire
Does it turn over? Does it have fuel, spark and compression?
check for fuel, spark, compression
check for spark at the spark plugs... check for fuel getting pulled into the throttlebody
More details are needed. I presume this is a vehicle. What sounds does it make, does it start to turn over? The problems could be damp or other earthing problems, fuel pump problems, starter motor, etc.
