Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Coupe

2 Answers

I am attempting to replace the exterior door handle of a 96' cutlass supreme 2-door coupe. I have removed the broken handle and replace it with the new handle. I attached the clips to the arms and secured the locking mechanism into place. My problem came when i went to shut the door and the latch at the bottom of the door did not move, cause the door to bounce back and not lock,. How would i fix this? thanks jeff

The release rod from the handle is adjustable it sounds like it not adjusted properly causing the latch to stay in release ! Also make sure the rods are installed in the correct location ! The striker could be out of adjustment - open the door and use a screw driver to manually close the latch leave the screw driver in place and pull the outside handle and see if it releases ! Also when you manually close the latch does it stay locked - if yes the striker or door may be out of adjustment !

Take your finger and rotate that little gear on the latch on the door, either back or forth and it should work then.

'94 Olds Cutlass Supreme Door Handles


You have to find the linkage and pull it. If yu cannot find the linkage, one trick is to go to a self serve wrecking yard and play with one of the 90s olds by removing the door panel and looking at it to see how it works.

I have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme that intermittently won't start


If the lights on the dash all come on but the engine wont turn over it could be a problem with the VAT security system. Your key has a little chip on it between the teeth and the handle. This is a common problem with GMs', often just replacing the key is necessary but sometimes the VAT module needs to be replaced.

External door handles broken


tedious, but not very hard. you must remove the inner door panel and reconnect the rods to the handle from inside the door. if the clips that hold the rod onto the handle are broken, you may need to source new clips, or just get another door handle that comes with clips.

Cost of labor and parts to fix door handle to 1996 Cutlass Suprem


Unless you are the same poster with the cutlass, I am cut and pasting the same remarks:

It would cost you WAAAY less if you pick one up on ebay or craigslist or something and do it yourself. Not a difficult task. Go to a library or auto parts store and pick up the manual for your make/model. You can do this. No special tools required, but you may want to pick up a door panel fastner removal tool....$5.00 if that.
