1991 Oldsmobile Silhouette Question: wont turn over
I suspect you either have a bad battery, bad battery connections or the starter has failed. First check the voltage across the battery it must be 12.6 volts or the battery is not charged and would need to be charged and tested. If the battery voltage is low perhaps the alternator has not been charging the battery, (engine running the voltage across the battery should be approx.14.6 volts). Check the battery connections are clean tight and secure, try "jump starting" your car from another car, if it "jump starts" the starter is fine and mechanically the engine is sound, if it doesn't "jump start" you need to check the battery and starter circuits. - patrick mannion
