New battery and starter and all you get is clicking sound on the crank.
The best thing to do is to first make sure your timing belt didn't break. As long as the engine cranks you can do this. Give the battery a 3 min charge . Then have a helper crank the vehicle while you observe the rotation of all the pulley's and belts. They must rotate together. If the vehicle has a distributor remove the cap ground the coil wire and watch the rotor as the engine is cranked. it should spin. If this is a-ok your worse nightmare is over.

Next check out condition of battery cables, starter relay, neutral safety switch and ignition switch.
Make sure your getting full B+ to starter. Put voltmeter on wire from relay to starter and crank the car. What is the voltage? It should be 10 vots or better. If not check all items listed above for resistance. Use shop manual for spec's. Item with most amount of resistance is holding up the show.
Although battery is new make sure its fully charged before doing any testing.

Sounds like the battery is dead..Sometimes you have to clean the jumper cables and terminal on the battery to make a good connection try that and let your battery charge for a few minutes before trying to start it. If that doesnt work you may have a seized starter! Good Luck!

1999 oldsmobile delta battery changed but won't power on


If everything else checks out Ok in the ignition system (electrical) and if the engine and transmission turn freely,that sound like you might have starter drag.Check to see if you have good connections at the starter.I know its new but check your battery for 12 volts,good connections,ect.
