A lot of gm vehicles use a single wire alternator the only way to tell is to either look at the back of the alternator or go to a parts store and look at a new alternator for you vehicle

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

I need to know where all the wires go on an alternator on a 1979 350 rocket on an oldsmobile cutlass supreme


You should have a heavy #10 red wire with an eyelet that will fasten to the stud on the back. You should also have 2 smaller wires ,14-16 guage, in a plug-in that slides into a slot on the top rear of the alternator. They are probably brown and red or orange. If for some reason, the plug is not there then the brown wire goes to the #1 or left hand tang, looking from the back. The red or orange goes to the #2 or right side. Make sure you use an insulated connector if you have to do this because voltage will arc between the 2 and short out your alternator. Hope this helps.

My 83 cutlass supreme check engine light on


It means the car is running too rich. Check the air filter. If it clean you will likely need to rebuild the carb if it hasn't been done. If it has you might just need a carb adjustment.
