Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva
Hey thanks for answering my previous question so quick. I have a little more info for you to work with. Here's the thing... someone changed the terminals to top post... The car sat for about 6 months, and the battery ended up dying so I had to find a battery with reversed terminals, thank you Autozone, but im worried maybe I ended up with the wrong battery??? I never really thought to just buy new side post terminals and put those back on the car, and get the correct battery. The one we got was the exact same size as the one that came out of the car though. As soon as it was installed, the car started up fine everytime, after 2 months I was still getting power, but it stopped starting. Like I said before, every once in a while it would randomly start, but most of the time, nothing, not even a click. The new starter was installed, and im getting that click, and still no start... It was my first time installing a starter, could i have put it in wrong? It seemed like a pretty simple procedure to me...
Was this starter from a discound retail parts store? well most times those cheap starters are no rebuilt very well you get what you pay for, Try this when it won't start reach and hit the starter with whatever you can a good sharp hit not too hard if it starts after you tap on it I have always had it be the starter the small wire goes on the "S" terminal and the big battery wire goes on the stud on the solonoid any other fuse link wires with the same size eyelet should also go on the same stud.
