Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

The car just won't start!

I started the car up, made a u-turn from the curb and it stalled. It hasn't done that before, but now it won't even pretend to start. Just the click of the key, no engine turn over or anything. Jumping doesn't work, the lights and radio will still work. Help. I did find the muffler blocked with compacted mud from my front yard hill, but I can't imagine why it won't start now. Please help.

Car stalle Security light on

Try your spare key.It could be that the primary key you have been using needs to be reprogrammed,which can be done by contacting a dealer.Turn the key to the "On" position in order to reset the pass lock system.Wait for fifteen minutes with the key in the "On" position.If the security light disappears, turn the key to the "Accessories" position and wait for a couple of seconds.Turn the key to the "Off" position and take it out from the lock cylinder. Wait a couple of seconds and turn the car on.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My heat works, but my AC does not. It makes a noise if turned on and gives the car the shakes and does not even pretend to blow cold air.

The noise you hear is probably the belt slipping. Turn the A/C switch on and look at the compressor under the hood. the part of the pully on the front side of the belt should spin, stop periodically and then start spinning again. It's tough to tell from here but the odds are that the belt may need to be changed and the system charged with Freon. When the freon level gets too low , the system won't start up and cool the car.

Best wishes.

My a3 says safe when I turn it on and won't start.

Just a simple hint. Just try reset ECU that will fix the problem if its a minor related to electronic.
Still wont start means you need to go to shop to get curbed .
