Question about 1996 Oldsmobile 88
Car turns over but won't start. When this happens, windows, door locks and seat won't work. I know the fuel pump is grounded with the windows and that I have a bad ground, but I can't find it. I have the same exact problem. This is the second time that this has happened. The first time, I left it alone and came back out the next morning, and it started right up. I don't seem to have such good luck this time. The window's, mirrors, door locks, and seats are all non-functional, but the radio, horn, inside lights, blower, are all still functional. Did you ever find out the problem with yours? I do not know where to start.
Found this at:
"Stalls, no power window, seats, locks, fuel pump. I had same problemwith my 94 88. Pull back the carpet on the driver side just under thedoor trim. You will find a large wiring harness. Taped to the outsideof the harness will be a ground splice block. If it is corroded,resplice the wires and your car should start and run, and the windows,locks and seats will be back to life as well. There is another groundblock on the passenger side just under the door sill. You might want tocheck that one too, as there may be corrosion there as well. I had toresplice both on my car and everything is back to normal."
Will try it and let you know. This has been a real difficulty.
