No start, no dash lights, nothing

Asked by Sep 16, 2017 at 10:47 PM about the 2005 Pontiac Grand Am SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When trying to start the car, which
had not been a problem, I got no
dash lights, nothing. Took the
battery out and charged it
overnight on my automatic
charger, which indicated that the
battery was fully charged next
morning. After reinstalling the
battery, still nothing.
I was thinking possibly the ignition,  
but I'm unsure.
Any suggestions?

does the starter crank? voltage light ,ccoolant light and oil light lit on second try?

No Jason, as I said, no dash lights, nothing, it's as though there was no battery connected, and yes, I cleaned the terminals and made sure that I had a good connection.


becauses no dash lights, i'm thinking alternator or calpack.. computers are expensive soo i'd test the alternator next.
