Oldsmobile intrigue electrical problems

Ok, I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue, and here is the problem I am having with it. When I put the key in the switch, all is well but when I go to turn it on it will not turn over or even attempt to, at the same time i try to turn it on all the lights and accessories flicker off and on for a few seconds then stay off and the headlights slowly come on, but will still will not turn over. Then when I pull the key out all of the gauges would bounce back and forth. now the needle on the fuel gauge is stuck behind the upper peg. I appreciate your time and help in the matter. I have a 1999 Old Intrigue and just replaced the alternator. I started by unhooking the neg cable then changed the alternator. After the replacement was completed and the neg post was re-attached everything was fine except now the gas needle (gas gauge) is stuck behind the post above the full mark. What did I do wrong and more importantly can I fix it. Thanks Shep

WHERE CAN I GET ANOTHER KEY FOR MY CAR I LOST MY CAR KEY


Take your vin number to your local Olds dealer they can code you a new key. I would however only buy one there, take it to lock smith for extras they will be cheaper for duplicates.
