The positive and negative FROM the battery are BOTH under the hood. MAIN pos. cable(red) goes to starter, neg(black) goes to engine ground.

BEFORE you start, disconnect neg(black))cable first, then pos(red) from the battery

The reason for this is if you have a wrench and you touch the pos(red) post of the battery, and ACCIDENTLY touch ANY part of the vehicles METAL parts YOU WILL short out the system, and S P A R K S WILL FLY!!!!!!

DO NOT CONNECT NEG.(BLACK) BATTERY CABLE TO BATTERY UNTIL ALL OTHER CONNECTIONS HAVE BEEN MADE.
Rember Negative(black) to the battery LAST !

Yes just jack up so can slide under, most to remove will be the cable brackets which hold them down, not hard to do

Where is the fuse box on a 1997 Oldsmobile 88?


I assume the fuse box locations for a 1997 Olds 88 would be the same as for a 1999 - which are: (1) In the lower cover panel below the instrument cluster just left of the steering column - with a snap-off cover. (2) Passenger side 'kick panel' - side panel under the dashboard just forward of the door - lower cover panel underneath the dashboard and next to the firewall must first be removed. (3) Under the hood on passenger side on the firewall - need to remove black plastic outer cover (1/4 turn finger latches) then two black plastic inner covers (side spring latches).

I have a 1993 Olds 88 that is stuck in neutral. The shifter handle moves too easy, indicator needle moves but its not engaging. I was told it was shifter rod or cable. I took the steering wheel off but...


do not touch the column. the cable is attached to the bottom of the shift lever and on the trans. find out which end is bad and go from there. most likely you will need to replace the cable but ck both ends first.

The hood release on my 1993 chevy lumina snapped. the lever seems to have snapped from inside the car since it isnt attatced anymore. how much will this cost to fix at a shop?


YOU CAN FIX IT EASILY AT HOME IF IT IS JUST THE HANDLE. THE CABLE WOULD REQUIRE ABOUT 1-1.5 HOURS LABOR TO REPLACE SO DONT PAY MORE THAN THAT.
