Question about 1987 Oldsmobile Toronado
Oldsmobile Toronato '87
Battery died. After I put a new battery in the dashboard flickers, sometimes it shows "electical problem" and the battery meter is red. Engine will start but not run.
Same problem on Buick Reatta and Riv's The most common problem lies in the connection at the battery, The large positive terminal often doesnt tighten up.to provide a good constant contact one thing I found is to use a longer bolt with lock washers. The flickering of the dash is associated with this anad there may be a loose connection behind the dash itself, The electronic dashes of that era were hypersensitive to changes in the current, Make sure that all of the connections at the battery are tight. Also did you check the alternator for proper operation?
