Hello,
I have a problem with my 1997 pontiac grand am GT 3100 V6. When I turn the key I can hear a clicking osund but the car wont crank. I replaced the starter and got it checked out. The new starter was put in, the connections were wire brushed and shiny. Then I was told that the timing chain could be off. I replaced both the timing chain and gears, I held the shafts to pervent them from spinning and possibly dropping the rods. I returned the timing to top dead center and replaced the fender and all the parts. The water pump also needed to be replaced. I still have the same problem. I replaced the battery also and still it clicks. The motor isnt seized. And the electrical system is messed up im sure (hazards dont work, turn signals are opposite) I would appreciate any help I could get. Thank you, W. Weber

Did you try to start by bypassing the wiring system
just jump the starter terminals
check the wiring and N/S switch.

Check for a good ground on engine and starter
