Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.
What is the year make model and engine/trans of it please?
I see, thanks.
Does the starter click when the key is turned?
Do you know if there is power to the starter relay?
Power at the starter wires?
I see, thanks. What is the voltage at the starter and the starter relay? How is the 'starter' fuse in the under hood fuse box?
Okay, do you have voltage at 2 of the terminals at the starter relay? Also, is there a ground at one?
I see, thanks. That could very well be in the trans position sensor. The sensor tells the PCM when the trans is in Park or Neutral, then the PCM activates the starter relay.
There is a test for the starting system that does require a scan tool to see what the PCM is reading.
