Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva
The side post battery terminals on GM are a corrosion magnet, Take them off, pop out the bolt rom both positive and negative. Clean all the corrosion off the bolt all of it right down to shiny metal. Then peel the rubber cover on the cable ends back off the area where the bolt goes. wire brush it shiny if you have to cut the rubber cover so it will expose all of the cable end, then clean it good clean the battery where the cable connects also and put it all back togother make sure the engine side of the Negative is clean both the engine and the cable end and secure.
Try to start it Has anyone checked the battery with a load tester? you can have 12 volts but near 0 amps and amps is what s needed to crank the car over. if this information helps please rate me a fixya and contact me with feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org
