Truck key wont turn on my 1988 delta 88


Hi John:
The Delta 88 is not a truck.
If you're trying to use a truck key and it's not working, it's probably not for that vehicle.
You should be able to get the correct key by taking the VIN to a dealer who can provide the key code. Then you go to a lock shop and have the correct key made.

1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 (Vin "C") won't start, won't turn over


the 12 amp is for a jump start and the 2 amp is for a trickle charge which doesn't degrade the battery. i believe you have a loose connection either a loose ground cable or the positive cable to the starter check these and tighten if neccessary
