WHY WILL THE STARTER ONLY CLICK.

2001 Pontiac Grand Am • 220,000 miles

I have a 2001 grand am with a 2.4. Wife stopped to get gas and tried to start car and it would not start. Had the starter checked and its fine when you try to start the car the starter clicks and thats it.

"WILL IT TURN OVER" IS WHAT IT SHOULD SAY AT THE BOTTOM---I GET RECKLESS WHEN I'M IN A HURRY!

What board are you talking about?The security goes thru the body control module if the security is on the security light will be on solid o flashing when trying to start it.
