My 2005 pontiac grand am still will not crank, even after having the battery charged and installing a new starter. The old starter showed bad on a tester at auto zone. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Lets see if the starter is getting a trigger signal this guide will show you how. this guide will help you reset the alarm in case that is the problem as well. run down these guides and report back.

Yep, the new starter we got was defective, got a AC delco unit turns over great! Thanks for the guides.

I have a 2005 pontiac grand am, I went to start it after class this morning and it wouldn't start. All the lights came on but not the radio. This has happened before but the radio did come on the problem was that it was not in park all the way. I took it out of park and put it back in about 5 times. Also yesterday on my way to class, the car was making a weird clicking noise that sounded like my turn signal was on but it was much faster then it would slow and it stopped after 5 min. I don't know if that info would help.

Are you saying it cranks good but won"t start or it won"t even crank? If it cranks good but won"t start, have a helper crank it while visually check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Can"t rule your security system, at the moment, is the lite on or flashing?

Have the battery tested and the charging system. If you have a digital multimeter, we can help you do some testing.
My car wont start and the starter in good the battery is brand new and the quel is good too I dont know why my car wont start all the electrical starts my radio and the lights and the locks and the windows all work the engine will make no noise and I have no idea whats wrong with this car
No crank at all/nothing/nada: Could be the starter, starter relay, park and neutral switch and ignition switch assuming the battery and connections are good.

Was fine driving and then gauges stopped working and it started cutting out when stepping on gas, would not shift in into lower gear in auto transmission while driving. Now it will not turn over but can hear fuel pump turn on. What ever happened did blow one fuse, now gauges work. I can start it from starter it will start and then shut off every time. I have switched all relay fuses around and did not work, battery is good and has over a half tank of gas in it plus a new starter. Replaced the whole ignition but still did same thing so put the old one back in and took used one back. I was having problems with security having to wait until it stopped blinking and then it would start but before this light has been stuck on. If you have any idea about this problem I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.
