    Hey jgoofy2life i have this same problem right now. I have had my car down for a few months and checked everything from relays under hood and under dash, to replaceing starter. Finally deceided to take steering wheel off to look at ignition and in the process of getting the air bag, sterring wheel off it then says in my book you have to take it to a dealer if you have tilt steering wheel(which I do) so how did you get the tool to get that ignition cylinder off?

Car will not turn over but have lights

Hi, first thing you need to find out is if its a starter issue or power issue. Turn lights on and radio and anything else that is electrical in your car. Does everything stay on and bright? Does the car start clicking after a short time? If everything is good and your headlights are bright as they usually are, then you have a starter problem, maybe a connection problem from the battery or maybe it just went out(usually starters don't just go out without any warning) If the lights are dim or the car starts clicking after a few minutes having everything on you probably have a power issue. It's either alternator or battery. To test this get a jump start from somebody, when you get it started turn lights on and let run for a min. If it doesnt die shortly after that, disconnect the power side of the battery, if the vehicle continues to run then you have a bad battery if the vehicle dies it would be a bad alternator. Hope I could be of some assistance to you.

Cutlass supreme wont start

It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.
