Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Have the battery tested to see if the battery is good. Check to make sure there isn't a broken side post on it, making a bad connection, by taking off both cables, and sticking a flat screw driver in the hole for the screw and prying sideways and down, if it's broken it will move the entire post inside the case or fall out. You can take the battery out of the car and take it to Autozone and ask them to charge and check it for you for free to see if it's bad, but they won't check the posts for you to see if they are broken, they will only do a load test on the battery to check to see if it's good or bad under a load like using the starter on it.... same kinda thing. If it's bad, replace it . if the post is loose or broken, replace the battery. make sure there is NO corrosion built up on the cable ends that connect to the battery, if you see white corrosion that is acid and needs to be removed entirely, you can help this with you a bottle of water mixed with baking soda to neutralize the acid in the corrosion and then taking a wire brush or flat screw driver and scraping it all off on both sides of the area and rinsing it really well with clean water, keep doing this til all or as much as it is gone as possible.
