    that will not work
    the car needs to be taken to a mechanic to be reprogrammed with a scan tool. should cost between 50 and 100 bucks. more than 100 and go somewhere else. it sucks but that is the way they were made to be. ******** move on gm's part.

    Commenting on the guest and ronnie49
     neither of those are the right way there is a procedure involving the presets and the am/fm buttons with a 1800 number. I know the procedure but don't have the right numbers. Sorry

Have a 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra SL 4dr. VIN# 2G3AM5IN8K240


have you checked the glove box light? another way to tell where your short may be is to hook a voltage meter to the battery and notice a drain on the battery with the key off! then start pulling fuses to see when the drain stops and that will narrow down the possibilities of the problem... the drain should be easily located if its killing the battery overnight... help this helps

Automatic locks are draining battery, 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sup


Pull fuse to locks and see if that solves the problem first, does the battery drain over night, could be a bad voltage regulator in alternator.

Cutlass supreme wont start


It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

Olds Cutlass GL 1998


Are the battery cables corroded or otherwise no making a good connection? Clean them with a cable end cleaning tool avail at any auto parts store for around $5.00 and try it again, I bet the that is the issue, also charge the battery and have it tested at Kragen, they do it for free.

My car radio locked up when my battery went dead in my 1999 cutlass supreme


The only way to retrieve the code is to call a dealership. Give them the VIN and they should be able to tell you the lock code. That was the only way to get mine. It sucks, sorry!
