Hey there:

Looks like you're chasing an electrical gremlin here. First, the brand of spark plug may in some cases cause issues with starting. However, beyond brand is making sure it's the right model and has the correct gap is more critical. The fact that you're trying to start the car with throttle cleaner is a red flag. This method used to work really well with older, carburetor fueled systems, but with today's fuel injected systems that are monitored by ECU's, that typically causes a huge overload of energy, can fry the sensors and put you back to square one.

My advice here is to contact a certified mechanic and have them diagnose the starting problem you're having, as by trying to fix it, the problems with the Grand Am may have gotten worse unfortunately.
