Car won't start

Asked by Dec 26, 2015 at 07:57 PM about the 2000 Pontiac Firebird Base

Question type: General

Alright guys, my car won't start at all.  It's a 2000
V6 Firebird with 142K miles. My battery is good, I
have a full tank, and I just changed the starter
today. My car won't start, the dash lights won't turn
on and when you turn the key, you just hear a click
sound nothing else. My windows still work and
also my radio. If anybody has any clue or passed
experiences in this topic, please help. I've already
tried to pass cables and turn it on but nothing
happens. Please help

All your connections are clean, tight, and good cables from the battery? I believe you would have checked all that, but that almost sounds like the problem, or the battery is not as good as you think? Try jumping it to see if you can get it to turn over and start.

Dash lights not turning on, wonder if a fuse-able link is bad.

I checked the fuse box and they all seem good. And idk how the battery looks but I've tried to pass cables already and it still won't crank

Have you check the ignition key hole sometimes you can get a burnt connection in your steering collim and it makes it to where sometimes your dash comes in and sometimes not I would try that

Fuse-able links are in wires...

I would say at this point check for a bad ground check all your ground wires you know ground coming off the battery a ground to the frame of the car those kinds of things check all your wiring conections, cables, grounds to your battery connections make sure the battery terminals are extremely clean no corrosion and it does seem like a power issue to me like the battery would be bad?

It turns out it was a fuse from inside the car. Regardless of that, I still put in a new starter.

Oh that's good news you got it running then no problems? That's just a simple fuse too bad you had to do the work of a starter but now you got a brand new starter that's great to hear happy motoring especially in a nice Firebird can't beat that!

Just check all your fuses in your fuse box panel and see if any of them are bad Additionally you have a fusible link I think between the starter and the battery that also could be bad and that's like a big fuse that's incased in plastic it's a little trickier but first check your fuses your regular fuses inside your fuse boxes

I thank you ...and I let you know what I find..thank you very much
