From the symptoms you described, I'd pull the starter and check the solenoid.

Double check the battery is fully charged first.

Grab a test light go down to the starter, hook to a good ground and probe the battery cable. If that has power probe the solenoid engage wire( its the little one) have a helper turn the key to start if that gets power replace the starter.

1981 oldsmobile delta 88.... I think i have major electrical problems.... outside car lights work, good battery, good connections on battery, car has a stereo system, has after market alarm, both do not...

Not to worry a fuse blew, delta 88 have fuseable links that are equipt in certain area there are some at the starter they blow open. There are some at the positive battery connection that controls dash and ignition switch, so the one we are going after is the ignition switch controls so when you turn the key on inside light goes on and door jam light goes on and better yet the key in ignition goes on. lets hunt that fuse down. First a fuseable link is a wire that allows heavy current to flow through it if it exceed the rated amperage it blows open 2 ways it opens youll see it seperated or you put your hand on it andtug it and it stretches because the wire seperated internally.So go to the positive of the battery are there link there do you see opens how about tugging anything stretched out. okay lets goe to the starter are they open or stretched if you find any open or stretch you need to replace it. now do you have a fuse box the one in the engine compartment is called a battery junction box look for fuses that went open.If everything is intact and looks good now lets go the the ignition area take a peek along the steering column. and turn the key see the rod that moves. as you turn the key that called a strut iginition rod. follow it it will lead to a juction that is called electrical ignition switch feel and move some of those with the key on and if you get power on(You will have to have the key on to do this) there you will find the problem. let me know

No power to anything - how do I reset anti-theft system? Checked battery at Wal-mart - print out says okay low on charge. Charged battery for several hours on slow charge and then fast charge. Battery...

no... no power to anything means like the headlights are inop and such

in that case its a battery or battery cable issue

assuming you have headlights and power to accessories and the vehicle still will not start AND the theft light is flashing then YES your anti-theft system is trying to keep the car from what it thinks is a theft issue

simply pressing the unlock button on your remotes will resolve this

assuming you do not have the remotes then you will need the anti-theft computers reprogrammed at a dealer or good garage

keep us posted

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead

When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.
