06 pintiac grand prix

Asked by Aug 07, 2017 at 01:16 AM about the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: General

My grand prix wont turn on, when i put it on key on
engine off all lights come on like normal and
everything works like normal, but when i try to turn
the motor over i hear the starter click and then
everything dies as if the battery was completely
dead. I give it a little bit of time and it happens all
over again. I have a new battery, no codes and a
new ground wire ( the one that goes from the
chassis to the negative post on the baterry). Plz
HELP

Sounds like a loose or corroded battery cable. Check both cables including the positive by the starter. If they look ok, check starter solenoid

@lrodri911. Will a corroded battery cable let it work sometimes? cause sometimes my car starts with no problem and sometimes it dosent?

It can do it intermittently but to make sure and it's cheaper just to check and rule that out. If it still happens, then u need to get a volt meter and see if voltage is actually getting to the starter and the starter solenoid instead of guessing, it'll be more expensive to throw parts at it without checking first

I agree. Sounds like a loose connection or bad ground somewhere. First find the problem, then fix, not the other way around.
