Replace your starter. I think that you are expecting your problem to be in the same place as the repair you had done. General motors is famous for this problem. your starter will work fine but when the car sits the starter will drain your batt. even if the starter is taken off and tested they will tell you that's not the problem. I've been almost right where your at.

Take it to your local mechanics for a battery check. Most of the time battery check is FREE. They will also check wires that is connected to the battery.

Sounds like a short is draining the battery.

I'd suspect somewhere in the electric mechanism for the drivers window in the door.... Take it back to the guy who fitted the window and tell him about it.

They probably had to move the mechanisim to fit the window and may have trapped or rubbed a wire

Whats wrong when the computer as ys check your charging station


Does the radio turn on when you turn ignition. If not then the Battery
has bad cell. Replace battery. Battery's in Olds Aurora 98 typically
get a very long life. 6 years . After 6 I recommend replacing battery
If your car turns what does your battery read. If it's reading only 12 V
with eng. going, your alternator has gone out. If battery is new then you'll need to find another reason your battery is draining charge.

I have an '87 Olds Toronado and my problem is the battery goes dead over night while parked and shut off. I have had the GENERATOR light come on and also ELECTRICAL light come on. Any suggestions?


Sounds like the battery is not holding a full charge...or not being fully charged by the alternator...(may be a corroded connection) Both of these are free tests at your local parts store...if both test fine...(unlikely) the starter has to be shorting out to drain the battery overnight...Hope this helps.

Battery goes dead overnight on four occasions


I dont think the dealer knew what he was doing ,your altenator has 6 diodes inside it and the are a one way check valve for current,If one fails no light will come on because it is still charging,But will drain your battery,I hope this helps you and have a merry x mas and please dont forget to vote on this solution

Car won't start


buy a cheap volt meter check voltage on both sides of the starter seleniod on the fenderwell if you have 12 volts on both sides while cranking test voltage at starter if you have 12 volts at starter with fully charged battery and it doesnt start you will need a starter it also sounds like you might need an alternator once you can get it started
