Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My grand am won't start and I just drove it a couple
hours ago. Been starting up fine with no problems.
Just got in it and it won't start. No engine light or
anything came on. What can be the problem

1 Answer


First check would be the battery. They can die in an instant, especially if it is more than 3 years old. Look at the terminals for excessive corrosion and clean them before further testing if questionable. Then have the battery tested before investigating any further.
