Question about 1985 Oldsmobile 98
Has a new battery but car won't turn over at all. Lights go on, everything electrical works, but when you turn the ignition you get nothing.
Does your vehicle have an immobiliser? do you use a fob to open/close the doors? if so the batteries in the fob maybe poor/low and not switching your security on.
Also Keys nowadays are coded to the vehicle and if faulty will have problems you are suffering.
There could be another problem? ignition switch itself, when you turn fully there is a module behind the lock/switch that makes contact to the starter solenoid if this goes faulty power isn't sent to the solenoid.
Worth checking all above!
