I have a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix. This car is driving me CRAZY! I can go
out and try to start this car and 50% of the time it will not start. It is
as if it has a "starter kill" device such as an alarm. But if I simply wait
3 to 5 min.,it will start right up. Then there are days when it will start
everytime.I have tried to pin point when and why it does this but it seems
that there is not something that I do that makes this car not start or
start. This has been going on for at least 6 months now, but it will
always start if you just wait for it to get ready.
The starter solonoid or starter its self would get my vote. Less likely is
ignition switch, neuteral start switch.or contact to antitheft resistor in
key. Sometimes the brushes in the starter moter get stuck or make poor
contact. To test, give the starter a wack next time to see if fixes.
