I'm having some issues getting my car to start, any input would be appreciated. I have a 98 grand am with a 3100. When I go to crank the car the starter turns about a quarter turn and then stops. Here is what I know.

- Pulled the started and had it spun up, it tested good
- Battery has 12.6 volts
- Positive and negative battery cables have clean connections, have voltage
- Purple wire going to the starter has 12v and test lights good

This leads me to the blue fusible link which turns into a red wire. Does anyone know where this wire leads? Thanks.

What does the car actually do when you try to start it?

Starter turns the pulleys but not far.

That dosent mean that there is something wrong with the starter.
