clicking sound when im trying to start it.ran 2hrs previous any ideas?
Check your battery cable connections. They should be clean and tight. If they're ok, load test the battery. Could be time for a new battery. HTH. -Jim
Corrosion on battery terminals likely. Baking soda and water will clean it, the vaseline on terminals to prevent it from happening again. May have to remove them and use a wire brush or a $1 terminal cleaner, that has a bottle-brush-like enf and a round end for battery. If side post, basically same. If that does not work, and you have had not warning lights on, such as ALT to warn you the battery is not charging, time for new battery
Hi Jim. That was not there..
Battery is fine, is there a kill switch on anything that would not let it start, I was in the locked car and tried to start it, the alarm went off , could that be why it won't start?
Not likely. Your Grand Prix uses a transponder key. The car would recognize the key and start. If the security system was the culprit it would do nothing. Not even the clicking that you're describing. Put the headlights on and try to start it. Do they stay nice and bright? If so it's most likely the starter. Or do they dim, flicker, or go out? If so it's the battery or the battery cable connections. HTH. -Jim
Thanks I will give it a try
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
replace starter solenoid.. copper contacts are corroded.
My 2006 grand prix wont start it just make a click sound
1998 grand prix, turning the key the dash lights up, clicking noise but wont start. I am still able to operate windows and radio. Could this my battery or something else. Thanks
Sounds like a dead battery or bad battery cable connections. Make sure you have clean and tight cable connections at both ends. If that doesn't solve the problem load test the battery. If the battery fails the test and is more than a few years old replace it. HTH. -Jim
