Have a 2001 grand prix that won't start.....turn the key radio and a/c and lights work....had battery checked and it was good.

Asked by Jul 05, 2012 at 11:45 AM about the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Someone said it's the starter....but i would imagine there would have been cranking a some point
recently if it was that and theres been none. Could it be a fuse? someone else said it might be the
ignition switch...how would i be able to tell?

If the engine is 'rolling over' then it is not a starter. However, If the engine is not 'rolling over' then you may want to get the starter checked. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If it checked and is ok; I would check all of the fuses. Ignition switches do go bad, but the starter is the more likely culprit if is not cranking.

Check your gear position switch. Your car has to sense a Park or Neutral position to engage starter.

could also be bad wires
