-WON'T START

2005 Pontiac Grand Am

This question has been asked before but I can't find a solid answer.
Car has been running fine, wife drove it to work, when she came out it wouldn't start.

When I turn the key the guages (ie, speedometer etc.) Bounce and I hear a faint clicking from the Black Box (fuse box) on the driver side of the firewall.

Battery is good and put on new starter and switched the starter relay with no change.

PLEASE HELP ASAP.

You will need a test light for this. Test crank fuse in underhood fuse center. Test PCM acc fuse in fuse panel inside car. Have someone crank engine and check for power at the purple wire @ starter solenoid. If nothing go to starter realy and check for power @ G2, if none test ign switch-battery 1 fuse for power. If ok then test G3 for power with key on, if ok then put end of test light on pos battery and test E2 for ground when cranking. If all ok, then go under dash and test big yellow wire out of ign switch for power when cranking. Get back to me

I too have that same problem. I have a 2000 Grand Am, 4 cyl. Over 120,000 automatic.
What happens is my car would sit overnight. Temp cools down, cranks and starts up for a second and dies. I turn off the ignition switch, turn it on, but don't crank, until I hear the fuel pump stop making that buz like sound, then I crank it. Starts for a second then dies. Its been about 8 to 10 months since I replaced the fuel filter. I checked with a service technician and he said it might be a faulty fuel pump. But my car does start when it gets warmer. What does my car need in order for it to start when it is cold outside?
Your help and time is greatly appreciated.
