Check in the engine compartment fuse box, it should be near the battery under the hood. The cover should be pretty easy to remove. The fuel pump should be connected through a fuse in slot 48. If that fuse looks good, then you may want to check the fuel pump relay (also inside the engine compartment fuse box). The fuel pump relay is #18 in the fuse box. Start with the car off, and have somebody else put the key in the cars ignition and attempt to start the car while you listen to the relay. If you can hear this relay make a "clicking" noise as the car attempts to start, then it is working properly.
If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure that the engine is actually turning when you attempt to start it. If you can hear the starter motor turning but the engine isn't turning (look at the belt) then the starter may not be engaging (in your car I believe this means that you must replace the whole starter). You can remove and test your starter to confirm whether or not the solenoid is engaging the starter.
Aside from those two things, you may want to look at some of the other fuses/relays associated with starting the car. If you tell me which engine your car has I can give you more things to try.

dottieleland , There is (NO) fuel reset/shut off switch or button on your 2003 Grand Am.
There are many reasons for your car to crank and not start. Anything from factory security system locking you out, bad fuse/relay, clogged fuel filter,faulty fuel pump, oil sending unit/crank sensor failure, clogged catalytic converter, failing electronic ignition, ECM/PCM,etc.,etc. As a first step best to see if there are any stored trouble codes that could point directly to the fault. Some of the auto parts suppliers offer free code reading like Pepboys, Nappa, Advanced auto parts,etc and some of the guys are very knowledgeable and may have seen the issue often and put you on the right track. Find below some trouble shooting links that may help solve your issue. If not wanting to do the repair your self have a good local auto repair shop have a look /diagnose and estimate repair.
Replaced fuel pump, checked relay,it's clicking checked fuses. Still can't get fuel pump to work
John, fuses all good, relay good, and you are certain the pump does not come on, the pump only runs for a few seconds to build pressure unless the engine runs. with an assistant, listen close to the fuel tank to see if pump does come on while the assistant turns the key to the on position only(not start) if no sound check to see if you are getting power at the fuel pump(key on) with a DVOM.
Try your fuel filter
Thank you scentina michael i do need to change filter .i have one in my trunk havent installed it yet like your pic by the way.
My 2003 Grand Am sometimes wont start. I've noticed that when it wont start, the security light is flashing. To resolve the problem I have to leave the key in the ignition with it in the "ON" position for 12 minutes to reset the sensor. The sensor light will stop flashing when it is reset. Then I turn the key off and then back to start. It works every time but the 12 minute wait is a pain in the ass.
My fuel pump is coming on but not sending fuel up
Here are 2 links that may fix your problem. These cars have lots of issues with the security system, maybe one of these will help.

I have a 05 grand ami was driving it and the motor shut off and it doesn't want to start and when it starts you have to hold gas pedal to floor and when you put it in gear it dies I tap on gas tank and it will start but you have to hold it to the floor and it dies when put in gear and misses out when you hold to floor it sounds like bad gas what could be wrong with it
I had a problem last week with the a/c compessor blowing the 10 amp fuse .i read that on 04 grand am these two things are closely related the car wont start looking into it more tomorow. 50 and raining here now.cant pull it into my heated garage cuz it wont start if any one has had the a.c.compressor fuse no start problem please let me know how you resolved. Mike
I found a short circuit melted wire going to a.c.compressor blew the fuse it is connected to fuel pump in some way.
My problem sounds similar. Ac quit, cranks but doesnt start. new fuel pump. Where was the melted wire?
97 Grand Prix change the fuel pump and the relay checked all the fuses but I'm not getting any power to the fuel pump I'm at a loss and I don't know what to do
You might have a loose hot wire or it could be broke where you can't see it I would run a new hot wire and ground wire
2002 Pontiac Grand Am Sedan the Relay and Fuse replaced and still not cranking ran out of gas cranked the first time and tried driving to the station and cut off again never to crank again even with gas and gas treatment in it hold down the gas cranks but won't stay running even while still holding down the gas
I've done every possible thing you can do even jump started the fuel pump relay and the crank relay and jump started the starter Ive checked all fuses and even the ones I didn't think we're blown replaced all and relays and it still won't do anything. When I get in and turn the key all lights come on but it will not turn over or make noise I'm at a loss

@debbles66 Check for fuel lines leaking ,look for puddles of fuel under the car. A leaking fuel line will starve the engine to the point of quiting
Hello I am working on a grand am Pontiac 1995 v6 3100 engine the car just stopped on her so I came out and gave the car a jump it started and stalled again the finally got it to start and drove it home for the young lady then tried to start it back up and its nothing light on the dash and a click noise
Jameslogan101 mine did that to. Try your battery cables or throttle body sensor
I have something similar but I'm getting spark and fuel but doesn't sound like the injectors are pushing fuel relays are working spray fuel in the throttle body it starts but shuts right down
