Oldsmobile Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be attempting to help you today. When you the key to the start position, what happens?
If you try to start the engine and them let the key go back to the run position, does the security light flash, stay on or go out?
What size engine do you have in your car?
Do you have a digital volt meter AND a test light?
Do you want to do some testing tonight and see what is going on?
The first step will be to check all the fuses with your test light, ignition switch on and see if you have power to both sides f all the fuses in all the fuse boxes. from there I can tell you what needs to be done. I will be here to help you every step of the way. As for what to do next, that all depends on what the fuses tell us. Each test has a different direction to go in depending on the results of each test.
Did you check EVERY fuse on both sides with the test light?
What fuses did not have power on them at all and what fuses only had power on one side?
I have no magic ball that will tell me what is going on with your car. I have to depend on you to do the testing I ask for so I have data to go by to be able to help you fix this problem. If you do not want to do the testing I need you to do then let me know and I will opt out and let another expert try to help you.
