You may need a new starter, it could be drawing too much, or your fully charged battery is not a good battery. Have you load tested the battery?

Have your starter checked. Once it goes bad it drains your battery very quickly when trying to start vehicle.

1998 olsmobile cutlass wont crank


If the engine is not seized, you may want to start by checking the battery condition. The battery could be dead. If the battery is charged, but it still won't crank, then there is a problem in the starting circuit. If you have power to the starter, but it won't crank, then the starter may be bad. It could also be a bad cable or a bad connection between the batter and the starter. It may be a problem between the ignition switch and the starter.
When you turn the key on, before you start the car, does the dash light up? When you try to crank, are there any noises at all, or dead silence?
The battery must be good AND charged before you can really investigate this problem.

Starting Problem


Fully charge the battery and see if it starts like it should. If your battery is fully charged, but still turns over slowly, its your starter. If using a fully charged battery solves your problem, its your alternator.

Bmw 325i wagon slow starting then totally no turning over at all.All lights work dash is all lit up .Battery is fully charged car has faint click.but still wont turn over.I think it might be the starter...


I would try replacing the battery first. Even a fully charged battery can have bad cells which will cause the battery to not have enough "power" to turn over the starter/engine.

Ym oldsmobile cutlass supreme wont start and i put


Worst case or one suggestion might be the timing chain. I bet I get some flack here from pros and dealer techs, but the slow cranking is what I keyed off of. Iam sure the knowledgable olds folks will help you. Also bad battery cables,bad starter or just it's solenoid. Do you feel it is a starter issue as in cranking or no start as won't stay running?

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it starts by jump starting it. Your battery needs to be replaced. If it turns really slow, the starter needs replacement.
