1997 cutlass supreme won't start

We put in a new starter but still won't start. We checked the battery and the battery cables and the fuses. What else could be going on? The car has a brand new engine in as of May 2008.

    It will turn over but not start.

  • buttrfly2126 Feb 11, 2009

    It has fuel pressure.

  • buttrfly2126 Feb 11, 2009

    Could it be the key itself? If that lights is that the transmission?

    if you can get to the starter use a test light on the single wire the small one which is for the solinoid and turn the key and see if it lights if not you will have to go to the neutral safety switch on the transmission and useing the test light see if the light works when the key is turned to start i think the wire is purple or yellow.

    if it cranks but dont start then check fuel pressure if good ok if not check fuel filter. there is a fuel pump fuse you can check. if fuel is there ok. does it have ignition spark? there are 2 fuses ECM& ECMB check those they should be 10 amp they are red.

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).

My 1996 cutlass supreme eill not start. when i turn the key i get no sound or anything


Check your battery connections. Take them off the battery and clean the posts and inside the + and - cables. If that does not help, the battery may be bad.

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?

My 1997 Olds Cutlass Supreme won't turn over


Better have the starter, battery and chargeing system all tested. A starter can cause the problem.

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.
