Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Coupe

1 Answer

I have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme that intermittently won't start

I have a 1996 Olds Cutlass Supreme that won't start intermittently... you turn the key and other than dash lights, nothing happens. It appears to be related to the security system, because it starts and runs perfectly fine most times. Can i bypass or repair this system? Thanks!

If the lights on the dash all come on but the engine wont turn over it could be a problem with the VAT security system. Your key has a little chip on it between the teeth and the handle. This is a common problem with GMs', often just replacing the key is necessary but sometimes the VAT module needs to be replaced.

Want to get replacement key for 1996 Olds Cutless Supreme. Want the chip in key like oringinal key. Just want to replace key and hit the road.


A 96 does not have a chip in the head of the key, it is just an ordinary key and you can have one made at any hardware store that makes keys. Chipped GM's did not appear until the early 2000's.

Have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme, brake lights will not work. We've replaced bulbs, fuses and brake light switch and still nothing. Help!


Try having someone push on brake pedal at the same time thay move the turn signal lever up and down slightly to see if your brake lights work this would tell me that you have a faulty turn signal switch because GM runs the brake lights thru the turn signal switch so they work if you are driving with your 4way flashers on.

Heater core


Has the car overheted ? If so did you install the thermostat ? Check the coolant level. Low coolant level causes the car heater to not work. Also always bleed the cooling system everytime you add coolant when doing work on a car's engine. They have a bleeding screw near the thermostat housing or on the housing itself. After getting the engine to operating temperature, turn that little screw counter clockwise. This will release the pressure in the cooling system. Keep it open until only coolant comes out. If you cannot find a bleeding screw, do not open the radiator cap. But slowly turn the cap until you hear the coolant start flowing into the coolant reservoir .
