First, does the engine crank when you attempt to engage the starter? If it does, the problem is one of the following: fuel, ignition or compression. You just have to narrow it down. You can use a little starter fluid to see if it's related to fuel. You can pull a plug wire and connect it to a spare plug then lay the plug on a solid piece of the engine to see if you have an ignition problem. You can run a simple compression test to verify that you have compression. Once you get it narrowed down, find out why that part is failing.
probably out of gas
show me where the starter relay is are on a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville
is your e-brake on?
You should check the wires that are in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder. They tend to break easily.
could be one of the coil packs went bad
you could have left the battery disconnected. or maybe you drained the battery, you might have to recharge it
Had the problem with Bonneville not starting....turned out to be the security module. Your mechanic should be able to bypass the security module with a $15 part from Radio Shack. Pretty easy fix.
have a pontiac 6000 2.5 motor and it wont stay running
I need to know how to bypass the anti theft system pass key on a 1997 Pontiac grand am. my car will start but goes dead. wont remain running
try replacing the starter
overheated and wont start
It may be the resistor pack along the firewall under the fuse cover somewhere. This controls the speed of the fan.
I replace my flasher fuse.Now they light up but won't blink.
try replacing your battery maybe turn the key?
If your 1996 Dodge Stratus wonÕt start you can try to jump start the car. There is no reset button like a computer. You can recharge your car battery with a jump start.
you need a new alternator.
security lock out had same problem with our 2004 grand am
The Optispark distributor is notorious for causing this problem.
