I have a 1999 grand am gt with the 3.4 V6. It stopped running while driving. Changed the battery to a brand new battery. Changed the starter to brand new starter. The car will not turn over. I am lost here. Any idea what it might be?

Don’t have a volt meter but lights and accessories all work. I just put in a brand new battery
Pontiac Mechanic: Roy Belding, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

ok

need to test voltage at the starter solenoid when you turn the key to start. can you get a test light or voltmeter??

possible causes

1. bad starter

2. starter relay

3. fuse for the relay

4. neutral safety switch

5. wire harness issue

6. ignition switch

this is why you need a test light or voltmeter
