I have a 1998 olds 88 the power windows and power seats stopped working and it cranks but will not start.

Some of these cars have a double positive battery cable at the battery if it is like that remove the cables and clean them and reinstall them if they won't tighten good enough you can add a washer between them to get them to tighten down. There is a round block of lead between them that gets smashed down over time that causes them to not tighten up if it looses power on one cable that feeds the cars ignition and other things like power seats and windows it will still crank over but not start.

My 1998 olds 88 would crank but would not start, could not hear the fuel pump run.also the power windows and the power seat would not work,all stoped operating at the same time.

Need t check the basics first....are all fuses OK?
Needs spark at the spark plugs
Needs fuel at the plugs
Needs good "suction"
Once checked one of these will be absent.

1998 olds 88 wont start no power windows or seats

i don't have a solution but my car did the same thing in october 2009 and i still have not had it repaired. I am told it is something electrical because its your fuel pump is not coming on and that is why the car is not starting but it doesnt make since why the windows and power seats dont work. I have also been told the only thing that connects the 3 of them is the body control module.
