SOURCE: 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette ABS Light is on and

The first thing i would check is all 4 abs sensors at the wheels.You can do this with a volt meter set on ac voltage and spin the wheel if it generates voltage at all on the meter its good.

The radio and lights usually work when the battery is mostly dead. Check battery and cables to make sure you have a FULL contact. Also do the same with cables and starter. Most parts stores will check battery, altenator, and starter on bench test or in the vehicle for free or extremely cheap. Also you may want to check starter relay for current with an ohmmeter

SOURCE: 2002 Cadillac DeVille wont start (even w/new battery!)

well first off, check the glove box light blub, make sure it shuts off when you close the door, check it by pressing the switch with your finger to make sure it shuts off, also check under the hood for the light there if there is one, pull the bulb, and the same thing for any bulb in the trunk, then check again after a day to see if the battery dies, if it is dying while the vehicle is not running then it is the battery, if it is dying after it is running then it is the alt. you can check that also tho with a multimeter set to the DC volts setting, place the black end <the ground to any grounded area> and the red end <the hot lead to the back of the alt. > it should be reading higher then 12 volts, normally should be a higher reading then 12 volts... if you are getting a lower reading or just 12 volts then the alt. is bad and needs to be replaced...hope this helps you out...

I have a 2002 Olds Silhouette that sat for 3 years. I tried to jump it with no battery. Not enough juice to get it started. I put a new battery in it and now I get no power anywhere.


Most common problem is bad connection at the battery, or battery cable end terminals, but yes, all cars I've worked on have fusible links, either near the battery or near the starter.

I have 2002 pt . I have no problem with it, started it and put in gear, went to pull out and it shut off, now it won,t start back up, put new battery in, new switch, still nothing,


Possible starter failure if the engine doesn't crank. You can try tapping on the starter motor using a blunt object while turning the key to see if it starts. If it starts, suspect a defective starter motor. If it is a manual transmission, you can push start it in gear

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My 98 odlsmobile silhouette wont crank but lights come on my dad say it the fuel pump were is it located?


You say it won't crank...(turn over...?) The motor will still turn over even if the fuel pump is bad...(located in the top of the gas tank...professional repair only:) It could be dirty battery terminals (corrodid) the lights can work, but not enough juice to engage the starter...if it won't crank and cannot be jump started with another battery the starter is probably locked...you can try tapping on the starter with a hammer...(sometimes will temporarily work and confirm starter is bad. Hope this helps:)

2001 oldsmobile silhouette will not crank after.........


does the temp gauge or light come on? is the car over heating? .... oh and a starter can test fine when its cold, but the heat soak from the engine and exhaust affect it's performance drastically. it sounds like you need a new starter.
