Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
Battery will run the fan and lights. We can hear the fuel pump when we turn the key. It sounds like it is working. Turn the key and there is no other response, no clicking, no firing. The starter will fire when we arch it from the post to the frame or spray it with ether. We have been looking for a fuel shut off switch and a restart button, but are having no luck finding it.
Sounds like your key is no longer actuating the starter/not matched to the vehicle key code, if you can turn it on but no cranking action is done when trying to start.

Sure sounds like a flat battery.Could also be loose or poor connection with the main battery cables.Try running a wire from the positive terminal of the battery directly to the starter solenoid,if you leave ignition on vehicle should start.If the battery has collapsed a cell jump starting does not always work.You must confirm by swapping the battery to eliminate it as the cause of your fault as any tests are useless unless you do so.let me know once youve confirmed battery is ok.

Did you check the ignition system for spark? The fuel pump is in the gas tank. There should be a test port on your fuel rail that looks like a tire valve with a cap on it. Have someone crank the car while you depress the schrader valve and see if you get fuel. Do that first then get back to me.

Either the battery is bad or the connections to the battery are corroded and/or loose. The lights may work but that doesn't mean the battery is good. The lights only draw about 20 amperes, the starter draws from 200 to 400 amperes.
If the battery connections are tight and clean, then most likely you need a new battery. A car battery store can test this for you.
