Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Coupe

1996 cutless supreme 3.1 brakes come on automaticly

Car starts out driving fine then 15 minutes into driving it feels like the car is applying the brakes itself and when i use to let go of the gas pedal the car would roll freely but when this occurs the car starts to slow down and stops on its own also the brake pedal is very tight this just started about 3 day ago after i replaced the brake switch under the brake pedal. so what is causing this self braking. thanks.

You have got to adjust the brake light switch so it isn't pushing on the brake peddle see right now it is holding the brake down

Want to get replacement key for 1996 Olds Cutless Supreme. Want the chip in key like oringinal key. Just want to replace key and hit the road.

A 96 does not have a chip in the head of the key, it is just an ordinary key and you can have one made at any hardware store that makes keys. Chipped GM's did not appear until the early 2000's.
