What made you think the coil or starter were a problem? Not knowing the year of your Cutlass it's difficult to give specific advice, but if it is injected, run a diagnostic test using a code scanner. If you don't want to buy one you can rent/borrow from many auto parts retailers. It might be something as simple as an electronic ignition pickup module or something as bad as a slipped timing belt, but without more information it's impossible to get more specific. Check for spark at the plugs, fuel pressure/prescence at the carb/injector,or clogged air filter frst.
changed seliniod on starter and on firewall ,checked fuses still won't turn over, if I cross the upper seliniod with a screw driver it turns over but won't start?
It is likely that you have a bad ground in the system... check all the ground wires
cables and or check for good ground first.
Follow the + battery cable should connect to the starter relay (solenoid)
where is the windshield washer fuses located in 1997 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme
Usually when this happens the starter solenoid has failed -- remove the starter and have it checked/rebuilt. Some auto parts stores can run a check for you also.
have you checked the relay on the starter? and check the wire that runs from the started relay to the starter.
The reason it blows out is because the starter shorts out the circuit. Replaceing the starter solves the problem
Check ignition relay. Jump the battery directly to the starter and see if the starter is any good.
On the 94 and 95 you just pull it out. Be careful with the wiring connector.
Check the fuses and the starter relay.
Have you checked your fuses?
Example sentence - The fuses in vehicles should be checked carefully.
check the starter button. pull it out and see if the like comes on if it does you might need a new spring in the button. i had this problem on my 86 700. good luck
yes i can answer what is shorting the chevey tahoe fuses theres a promblem with the starter wires moving and touch and grounding on to the starter remove starter and adjust wirers
My 1991 Olds Cutlass Ciera had that problem and it was corrected by replacing the turn signal switch. Troubleshooting with the factory service manual pinpointed the problem. Paul S
If it is the starter that is grinding, the bushings are worn and the starter is "dragging" and not spinning fast enough to get the engine started. Replace the starter, chances are that the armature is damaged due to the dragging (grinding against the inside wall of the starter.
Is this an automatic or manual transmission?
Open passenger door. Look on the end of the dash panel for a door marked "FUSES".
If the brake lights are not coming on in your car and you have changed the bulbs and the fuses with no results, you could also check the wiring in your '98 Chevrolet Lumina. The wires may be damaged or even broken.
Check th e ground on the lights. If ok, you may have to have a mechanic check it out.
I checked fuses and replaced blown fuses and now it won't start.
if you took the wires off at the battery to change the starter, make sure you put them all back on
