Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88
The passenger door window shattered and all the glass fell into the door. I tried to take the door apart, got half way and could'nt go any futher. I put it back together, started the car and moved it. Thje next day battery was dead. I charged it several times over the next few days and it still went dead overnight. I pulled the power window fuse out, put in a brand new battery, used the car for two days and then the battery went dead. Something is on which is making the battery go dead, how can I find the problem? Pls help as this car is really good on gas and only has 110,000 miles on it.
Thank you,Ron Bonito "email@example.com"
Get yourself a multimeter, take the door cover off. Start checking everything. check to see what is hot and whats not. If its not hot, then it not the problem. If its hot then follow it back. Also I'm not real familiar with the Delta modles, but I have run into situations where some of the relays are actualy under the driver seat. If it doesn't seam to difficult you may want to pull the seat.
If your not into all the trouble shooting and diagnostic work, one other way to solve the problem without a lot of work is to go to the junk yard. Find a door that works and is obviously all there. and just replace the old door. The worst thing you may need to do is go to Mayco and get a cheap paint job. The most you need to do is just splice the wires where they are cut and your problem is fixed and you didn't take the door apart at all. and if the inside part doesn't match just replace it with the cover from the one you got rid of.
