Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

Dead battery or starter?

Wipers were left in the "on" position, but I don't think any lights were left on...? Dead battery in morning, not even dash lights. Tried to jump-start, battery gauge showed no change until I slammed the driver's door... then the dash lights & all came on and the gauge started to go up. I tried the ignition (before it showed a full battery charge) and it went "click" and all power was gone. Waited about 10 minutes and checked, still no lights or change in the battery gauge?? Is it a dead battery or is my starter bad... or something else??

Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.

1998 Town & Country Dash Buttons are Flashing on and off


set it on full cold, set it to panel vents, blower motor to high. hold the wash and rear wiper buttons on the control head until all the lights come on. it will run through different tests, different lights will flash and alternate, and when it is done the rear wiper button will flash if everything passed. push it and everything will go out. if other lights still flash when it is done, you have failed the cooldown test because the a/c doesn't work right, or a door calibration did not pass.

Hi Am, Open the hood and check the fuses inside the fuse box. I'm sure you will find one which has blown. If that fails, check the wiring from the battery terminal on the positive side. Regards John

98 Contour, starter ticks like dead battery and wipers cycle a couple of times when I turn the key to start. Wiper switch is in the off position, battery is fully charged. I would think possible starter...


If you turn the key and you hear a click and the motor is not moving your starter is probably bad. Everything can work on your car and the starter can be bad all by itself.
Check and see if your wiper is inthe correct position,sometimes we accidently move it without knowing.

provided you disconnected the battery before you charged it, its probably just a new battery you need, but if you did not diconnect it you have probably done damage to the starter motor and maybe the alternator and god knows what else
