Q: Won't start on 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I turn the key nothing happens, no interior lights or anything. I checked the battery and it seems like it has enough power, but when I try the headlights they won't turn on. Nothing electrical works. What could be causing this?

Starting with the battery of your 1996 Oldsmobile Sihouette all electrical connection should be checked to be sure they are clean and tight. The battery should be correctly tested "It seems like it has enough power" is not good enough. If you are SURE the battery is OK then begin with the battery cables and follow the electrical power flow checking ALL connections until you find the problem.
