See if you can jump start it and have it stay running. If you have gauges on the dash, check the Alternator gauge to make sure it's charging good. It doesn't take much juice to keep the radio going so don't assume the battery is good.

SOURCE: car won't start!!! & ABS Light on

Sounds like carbon build up on the contacts inside the electrical ignition switch which is not the key cylinder. Its located on the lower steering coluum if coluum shift or if you have a floor shift it will be inside the console

SOURCE: seems like the car is staying in "ACC" (accesory key position)

the ignition lock cylider gets jammed try messing with the shifter my alero has done the same thing to me. the ignition cylinders on these the grand-ams and about five other gm cars with the dash mounted ignition are very ****-poor and a new switch at the dealer is 175.00 and you have to have it fitted to your key as the new one comes without a key

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.

That sounds like an alternator. It is not recharging the battery as you drive. Seems you were driving around on just battery power. Have the alternator and the battery tested. And I would get a new battery since it has been drained and charged a couple of times.

Ym oldsmobile cutlass supreme wont start and i put


Worst case or one suggestion might be the timing chain. I bet I get some flack here from pros and dealer techs, but the slow cranking is what I keyed off of. Iam sure the knowledgable olds folks will help you. Also bad battery cables,bad starter or just it's solenoid. Do you feel it is a starter issue as in cranking or no start as won't stay running?

Seems to me that this is a security system problem. I had the same symptoms on my 94 Park Ave. Check this one out: http://vatspasskey.com . I bought one of those to fix mine. Was the only thing that worked.
