Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
I replaced the alternator when I got the car last year because the battery wouldn't hold a charge. It ran great up until the point I let it sit in my driveway for a season and a half. I charged the battery. I boosted the car. I checked the fuses. I have no answers, nothing has worked. I am going to try the Passkey thing tomorrow by leaving it in the On position for 10 minutes at a time, 3 times.. It will click once then give me nothing. I read that the clicking sound is coming from the solenoids on the starter and that the reason it wont turn is because of the starter itself. I am lost. Please Help!!
I think probably not the starter, the battery is dying. The old alternator was possibly OK, but it never hurts to have a new one.
The behavior you describe is absolutely classic for a dying battery, which will not retain a charge. If you are sure for some reason that it is in fact OK, the only other answers are worn out contacts at the bottom of the solenoid, or a dead segment in the starter motor.
