2006 Pontiac Solstice Base 4 Cyl 2.40L


Car won't start, already replaced the battery

Electric windows work. Radio will play, but the starter makes no attempt to turnover. Car hasn't been driven in about four months.

I will assume that you do not plan on having it taken to a shop

After four months-- have you done anything in the way of testing
or even have those skills with vehicles

A failed & almost dead battery, will still turn on the radio & lights,etc

That is not a test for anything
Your Battery has to have 12.6 Volts before you start any testing

By turn over, you mean the motor turning,moving or cranking,your
preferred terms ?

You have a No Crank or a No Start-pick on !

The battery cables have to be removed & cleaned on both ends, of both cables,
as well as the starter terminals

You could have the starter tested at the parts store, if testing on vehicle,
is not your thing

You could swap out the starter relay for a similar one near it

You could move the gear shift to close the neutral safety switch

Check ALL Vehicle fuses

Nothing got wet did it ---under hood fuse & relay boxes ?
