Having problems with your 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix ?

Sometimes it will start and sometimes the starter wont turn over

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Start and crank are two different things.
If it will not crank sometimes, it could be the neutral safety switch or a dead spot in the starter, or something in the key switch.

Starter installation hey, a friend of mine has a 1995 oldsmobile achieva that wont start. It has worked fine for the past few years, but all of a sudden began to sporadically not start. Sometime it would, sometimes it wouldn't. Then it just stopped working altogether. We picked up a starter from a junkyard, that was tested, and worked. I installed the new starter myself, and still no start. When the key is turned it clicks once loudly, and then nothing. The belt probably moves less than an inch

No noise, nothing, Sometimes the radio comes on by itself .. can that be the drain, the CD spins when the car is off sometimes.
