Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 firebird with the 3.8l v6 one day I was adjust
my headlights then went to go start the car when u put the
key in the ignition I had power but when I went to crank it
the starter clunked and I lost all power. Since then I've
changed the ignition switch and starter and I'm still having
the same issue!

It might be just a discharged battery from running headlights with motor off. Recharge the battery or get a jump start and make it run. Starter and ignition switch were probably not broken. Where did you get all that snow?

I have tried jumping the battery I even hooked up a volt meter and I'm at 13.6 volts. Its a old pic but here in kansas
