2003 oldsmobile Alero Put new lock and cylinder in and car still won't turn over

I don't have anything to go by in regards to your vehicles history. The main items to check are Fuse and relay (are they in good working condition?), the Battery (load test, 12.6volts before the test and won't drop below 10.5 during the test), the Battery cables (tight and free from corrosion and frayed strands), the Motor (free from corrosion between it and the ground cable and the starter), the starter (bench test), and the ignition switch (worn or loose connections). Besides the mew lock and cylinder, what have you tested and replaced? What is the repair and maintenance history? Please write back with more information and I will do my best to help, good luck.

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry

The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

1996 honda accord, 6 cyl, EX Both low beam headlights went out last night. As far as I know, they were working. Went to Walmart and bought a 2 pack headlisghts and put only 1 in and the low beam (new bulb)...

Check the wire circuit for voltage and ground. The top wire is voltage, you can see the wire color, use a test lite, with lights on. The bottom black wire is ground for low beams, chassis ground. You can use test light to check ground, With test light touching voltage, touch ground wire terminal, if the light comes on, at least, the ground is good enough to lite the test light.
