I had this happen to me. What it ended up being was the ignition switch. There is a small wire that connects to the tumbler and this wire sometimes breaks loose. Sometimes it will start right up, sometimes it will not connect. I had to replace my ignition. Once I did that, I had no problems from there out.

This Too Is A Starter Problem, If >>The Battery Terminals Are Clean <<And >>The Starter Terminals Are Clean and TIGHT <<,I Would Wait Till It Wont Start Again and SMACK THE STARTER 2-3 times with a HAMMER then Try Starting it. If It Starts then it is The Starter. I KNOW this seems A Little UNCONVENTIONAL BUT For 30 Years This Technique Has Diagnosed HUNDREDS of STARTER Problems for me.

I have a 1993 cutlass cierra that won't start. lots of battery power but nothing happens when you turn the key. New starter was just put in less than a month ago?


locate purple wire on starter, find good ground on frame, check for power when as a friend tries to start. be small wire (purple or gray) on starter. if no power when key turned to start, its not getting ignition signal from relay or switch. try that.

1997 cutlass supreme. How do I remove the key ignition switch. I turn it and nothing happens. All lights and controls work. Happened a year ago, and found out it was a loose wire in the ignition switch.


I do beleive that you have to tear apart the steering column to get to this. This will require special tools, generally they can be rented from your local parts store.

I have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme that intermittently won't start


If the lights on the dash all come on but the engine wont turn over it could be a problem with the VAT security system. Your key has a little chip on it between the teeth and the handle. This is a common problem with GMs', often just replacing the key is necessary but sometimes the VAT module needs to be replaced.

Im trying to replace my ignition on my 1997 olds cutlass supreme gls, which is on the dashboard. oh and the key wont turn


Try to unlock by turn the key back towards ya and then try to push the key torwards the start. Make sure ya put the stuff ya took out back the same way ya took it out. If ya do not ya will run into this kinda prob.Make sure all wires are reconnected and so forwth. Before trying to start do not force the key to turn the colomn. It should be like it was before and if it is not then ya got something wrong so start back square one until the key click and moves as it had before.
