PONTIAC GRAND AM SPARK PROBLEM

2004 Pontiac Grand Am • 153,000 miles

My car does not want to turn over. It is not the battery, fuel pump, or fuel injector. What else could it be?

Cranking is starter action, will it crank? If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If it has spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure.

If it won't crank at all, then use a digital multimeter, make sure battery has a full charge. Check for voltage at the starter. Any testing at the starter, make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

I haven't looked at your security system, yet, just a thought.
