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.

Make sure the battery is ok. Other than that, the starter armature is bad

No offense but from a 1993 to 2001 comparison especially when were talking about head lights staying on and the starter circuit. There has been a lot of changes in technology the way the circuits run parts involved etc.

So you are saying the starter is bad or the battery. This my only transportation so I am trying to fix it right the first time.

A test light would be better but see if you have battery voltage to the purple wire at the starter.
