Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva

1 Answer

Car wont start

My engine will not start & the battery is fine. All the lights come on & the radio will turn on. Also the radio comes on by itself, and some times the windows will not roll up, so I have to wait & try to roll up later.

Why won't it start?


since the radio is resetting, i would first check the battery terminals. the radio has to power inputs, so if its resetting then your losing both at the same time. one wire more or less comes directly from battery, its the memory wire to get a presets and times.

2005 Honda Pilot: engine light suddenly stays on and radio turns off intermittently and then comes back on by itself. Any ideas?


Loose connection to battery caused radio to turn off when the brakes were applied! Overheating was a simple matter of low coolant... thought the two problems were related at first because they both started happening at the same time!

Ignition problem


Check the starter fuse. Could have popped, and would explain the trouble.

93 LX 5.0 replaced battery, ran fine then would not start


sounds like you have a good battery, get the car started put a voltmeter to wire connected to the back of your alternator. if you have at least 13.25 volts you have a good unit if any lower replace the alternator
the click sound you are hearing comes from your relay it is getting low voltage from the battery. because the battery has no juice caused by a bad alternator


hope to help shack

Ignition switch?


Nope, it's the starter or more specifically, the copper contacts under the removable 3-screw plate. Make sure that your battery connections are clean and tight - I've been bitten by that one too many times.

Doesnt always start, but lights, radio, AC/heat does come on.


First place to check is the battery. Old ones can push your lights , radio, etc, but the starter is the real load. . Can verify this by using jumper cables to a running vehicle and watch your machine fire right up! The reason mornings are the worst, is the battery has had the most time to discharge, and it is probably cooler outside.

WEIRD PROBLEM


On my girlfriends sl1 the engine would not turn over at all and I took the starter off and it was fried! I replaced it and it started right away, but I never had a problem with the lights not coming on.
