2003 Pontiac Vibe Start/No crank issue

Post by ccsaudio »

Hello and thank you all in advance for any help you can provide!

I replaced my starter on my 03 vibe, went and replaced the battery and then the vibe started up no issues, I parked it then came out the next day and it would not start, just a single click when I turn the key…. I then disconnected the battery left it off for a few mins and then reconnected it and then it would start…. A few days later I went out to start and same issue however this time the battery was dead… I went and got a new battery put it in and then it started, moved it to wash it and it would not start again, just a single click again…. This time the disconnect battery trick did not work at all, I thought maybe it could just be a bad new starter so I went and got another starter and put it in with new battery l, and now still the same issue, I turn the key and get a single click…. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
