Question about 1996 Buick Skylark
When the key is turned all dash lights come on but starter does not do any thing.no previous problem.
Try having someone turn the key to the start position while at the same time someone else taps on the starter with a hammer. If starter begins to crank the engine or makes weird noises or begins to smoke then you need a starter. If nothing happens, then using a test light or a volt meter check for power at the "S" terminal of the starter solinoid when the key is turned to the start position. The "S" terminal is the small terminal to the right of the terminal where the battery cable goes when viewed with the battery cable terminal at the 12 Oclock position. (usually a purple wire). Hope this helps.
