Oldsmobile Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello you say it was perfect for a week. What exactly happens when you try to start the car does it turn over? Does it spin over but not start, Or does the engine not crank over at all? Does the security light come on with the bulb check?
Okay no doubt we have a connection issue somewhere what about your battery cable ends any corrosion
Has there been any previous work done to the car, when it does start have there been any other issues such as performance problems or electical issues. You can take both those battery cables off and soak them in a cup full of baking soda and water it will boil it clean
On your car it will be fine i do it all the time i will slightly wet it spray it down with some good degreaser and hose it off
Can you follow the battery cables to the starter and to the engine block where they are grounded? ANy signs of overheating, are they tight?
Due to the fact that you are losing memory i beleive you have a connection problem
thank you for that, and the fact you cant jump it off goes to further my beleif we have a connection problem.
Do you have a voltmeter or test light?
Yes by all means check all fuses. after you hose it down and clean it real good, do you have a blower of some type like leaf blower or compressed air? if so good idea go blow everything dry. And i will be looking for you tomorrow
Very well i look forward to helping you fix it
Good morning thank you so much for your patience. Have you had the battery checked yet?
Okay please let me know where we can get this closed thank you
