Pontiac Grand Am "No Start" Due to Ignition Switch Failure

(9 reports)

The ignition switch may fail causing a no start condition. This is not generally a theft system (passlock) issue because the security light does not illuminate or flash.

Car will run, then kill usually after a few minutes. I have changed fuel pump , filter. Still seems to be a fuel issue. Was wondering if ignition switch could be going bad -
I'm thinking this might have something to due with my recall. -
Drove car to work everything fine, went out to start it & ignition was froze. No matter what I did it would not budge. Tried stepping on brake, turning steering wheel, etc. Called the Pontiac dealer & was told the actual switch was not in the recent recall. Spent $198 & luckily someone at work replaced it. If not I would have had to have the vehicle towed to dealer & paid extreme amount. -
switch will not start car.Has a 1 amp battery draw at all times -
cranks but no start unless a little accelerator peddle applied -
car sometimes starts, but no its just ckicking -
