Check all your connections. The cables going to your battery, the ones to the coil, and all ground wires. There might be some corrosion or something is loose. It could be a bad iginition switch, and or starter or the wire connections. Your going to have start poking around or have somone who can for you.

My grand prix is a 2008.0when I try to crank the car the I hear a clicking, and then the horn starts blowing. The car will not turn over as well.

To Marchelle: With the key in the "on" position, are you seeing dashboard lights, and does the horn work? If no, you have no power to the key, and the problem is probably between the battery and the fuse block. If you have power at the key, the problem can be your security system, a bad ignition switch, a bad steering column harness, or any number of other items. It will need to be traced by a qualified tech. Good luck!
