    it couldnt be a belt but i will try.. i got advice from a pro and i was told check my connections and all of the grounds. as you know it has a floating ground system, they say a spark could have back fired throught on of the grounds.

Are you Sure the Alternator is Fine???? Sounds an Awful Lot like it is not Charging the Battery to Full Capacity.

1993 Oldsmobile Cutless won't start


If problem with wiring circuit somewhere, replacing parts won't fix it. if starter motor refuses to crank, did you try cranking in neutral? Is this an automatic tranny?

When problem is ongoing do the dash lites work? Do any of your electricals work?

Changed batery in my 1997 oldsmobile cutlas and now it wont start


So everything was fine before you changed the battery and then after you installed the new battery the car wont start?
Did you double check that the battery was the correct model for your car?
Did you check that the battery cables and connectors are still in good shape (clean, tight, no signs of damage, fraying, or over-heating).
Did you check that the battery came fully charged?
Check the connections at the battery, starter, and engine block (ground).

Hi i have a 1995 cutlass supreme and it wont start up without a jump what could it be?


either battery or alternator are the most likely causes
if you jump it and it doesnt die-but requires another jump next time you start it-most likely the alternator is not charging the battery and needs replaced

Car died the other day, and now it wont start. Everything such as dash and radio seem to be working fine.


hi there the things to check are do you have a spark at the plugs?
do you have compression ?
are the cam shafts turning?
is the cam belt intact?
this are all needed to make the engine run it will turn over great but not start with this things not working infact if the last 3 are not there it will sound diffrent when you are turning it over with the key.

hope this helps Regards JR

Car wont start


I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.

You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.
