Question about 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

I have an olds cutlass supreme 72.  I have replaced the voltage regulator, generator, and battery several times, even all at once.  Have cleaned and replaced the grounding wire and belt that connects to the engine block.  My generator light is coming on dimly.  It is only when I rev the engine when in park that the light shuts of momentarily, and only when pressure is applied to the gas peddle.

First, I think you will have an altenator in the car, not a generator. This sounds like a grounding problem to me... try adding a grounding wire from your engine block to the frame of the car and the firewall (I am assuming your battery grounds directly to the engine block).

While I was driving my 85 cutlass supreme it shut off on me and will not start back up. Won't even turn on. Is appears to not be getting any power. Any suggestions?


Make sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections/cables all good. You need voltage and ground.
The positive battery cable may lead to a junction block, with fusible links, check them, use a digital multimeter, an automotive test light will work up to a point. Check the fuses in fuse box for voltage, some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
At the moment, I can't rule out the ignition switch.

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

Ecm module gone bad psooiblely


Clean and tighten your battery cables. I have a 95 cutlass supreme that did the same thing. If that doesnt fix it, the ECM may be to blame. When the ECM went in my Olds, the car would fire but only run for 2-3 seconds. Once I had the ECM replaced it was fine
