Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88
Hi, I recently recharged the battery (not fully charged 100%), after leaving the headlights on (left them on for a day or so).
Re-installed the battery; car started; drove it somewhere about 5-6 miles away; left it in park with engine running, for about 15-20 minutes (maybe more).
Drove home again; shut the car off, then restarted it (it did re-start), shut it off, and left it sit for a full day.
Next day, went out to start it; turned key; starter didn't turn at all, no response (Dash lights work, and headlights work, couldn't tell how well in broad daylight).
I did notice that the stock AC Delco radio's power button was left in the "on" (out) position. I pushed it back in, to the "off" position.
Do I just need to re-charge the battery?
Should I use the 2 amp or 12 amp setting on my battery charger?
The 12 amp is for a jump start and the 2 amp is for a trickle charge which doesn't degrade the battery. i believe you have a loose connection either a loose ground cable or the positive cable to the starter check these and tighten if neccessary
