1999 Oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 LTR V6 Will Click Once, Wont Crank and Will Not Start.


I think probably not the starter, the battery is dying. The old alternator was possibly OK, but it never hurts to have a new one.

The behavior you describe is absolutely classic for a dying battery, which will not retain a charge. If you are sure for some reason that it is in fact OK, the only other answers are worn out contacts at the bottom of the solenoid, or a dead segment in the starter motor.

Why doesn't my 1998 olds intrigue start?


That is the same as saying on the phone I am sick what is wrong with me? What are the symptoms? You need to provide detailed information as to what is happening when you try to start it! Do you have the key, gas in the car, charged battery, does the engine turn over, etc.?

1998 Olds Cutlass- My gauges were moving around very quickly when I turned the ignition. It won't start now and sounds like the battery is dead, but it's not. My gas gauge has spun around and sits under...


HiYour battery is not fully charged, jump start vehicle and take it to and AutoZone or similar auto parts store to have your charging/starting system checked for free.
On the gauges issue, you have to remove the instrument cluster and manually turn/reset the gas gauge. I have a 98 Olds Intrigue and happened a few times. I pull the gauge needle out and set it where it would be if the key where OFF, then plug the electrical connector on the cluster and turn the key to ON to verify gauge positions, on my case, I had to reset the temp. gauge too.
Good Luck! Don't forget to rate this post!!

98 olds intrigue needs new battery. How do you


The red plastic cover should just pop off, then you will see the head of the terminal bolt. you'll need to remove the braket holding the battery in place, just remember to replace it to hold the new battery still.

98 olds intrigue, wont start, dash lights are on but go out when key is turned even when jumping


It sounds like you have a poor connection with the battery cable on the battery. The bolt may be tight but contact may still be poor enough to loose it under heavy load. I hope this helps.
Thank You,
Roy
