Answer :Pontiac 2000 not startingdoes your engine try to turn over or just seem to be dead when you try to crank it?if it does nothing at all when you try to crank it, it could be an ignition switch problem,electrical problem, the battery could be going bad,alternator problem,bad starter,if no power at all replace battery or alternator. if you hear a "clicking"sound when you attempt to start the car check out the silinoid.My Pontiac ignition switch is completely gone, when mine would not crank or even try to turn over. Hope this info helps.Female in N.C.

Before you go out and spend money on a new battery. Check this do you have headlights? Are they very dim? Do you hear a clicking sound when the key is turned? Get a boost from someone to see if it will start. If it does then. Put your battery on over night charge (trickle charge). If you find you are still having problems then look into buying a new battery (Most auto stores will load check ur battery for free) I just dumped my battery for just this problem and bot a Motormaster Eliminator (which according to ctc doesn't fit my carrier - its does just a little tighter fix)
