The problem is with your ignition switch. to check it further, attach a piece of wire to the positive terminal of the starter and directly make contact with positive terminal of the battery. do this with the key in the ignition and on position.

Just bought a 98 intrigue and drove it this morning, it has been starting fine and shut it off and now wont start, just a clicking sound but don't think its the battery. any ideas on what to check


Hi to me if the clicking noise is coming from the engine then this points towards the startor motor packing up one thing you can try to get it started is give the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer doing this sometimes shock the selenoid into working again but dont rely on this lasting long term as it could leave you stuck

the best option is to get the starter replaced as soon as you can

to locate the starter follow the live red lead from the battery this goes to the selenoid on the starter and the big round thing next to the small round part is the startor motor give the bigger part a few taps with a hammer doing this should get it started

let me know if you have any problems

98 oldmobile regency won't start up and check


Well the fact that the traction light came on and blinked off when taking off is a good thing, it just means that your traction control is working properly. When that light comes on it means that one wheel was spinning and that the car adjusted the speed of the drive wheels to compensate. The car not starting needs to be addressed as to whether the car is turning over slowly, clicking, or making no noise at all. The check engine light will remain on until the vehicle is started, so that does not correlate to your problem. If it clicks, or turns over sluggishly, then it just needs a jump start and a test of the battery. If the lights come on, but the car does not turn over al all, then you may need to look at replacing a starter.

98 olds intrigue needs new battery. How do you


The red plastic cover should just pop off, then you will see the head of the terminal bolt. you'll need to remove the braket holding the battery in place, just remember to replace it to hold the new battery still.
