1998 Oldsmobile 88 Starting problems
My son and I are trying to locate the fuse link on his 1998 OLDS 88 with a V6 engine. Can someone either send directions or better yet, photo's or a video link so we can see where it is at. THANKS DSLJOHN
Re: 1988 Oldsmobile Starting problems
can you tell me why you are looking for a fusible link? is there a circuit you are try to locate a loss of power? If you could tell me what the problem that you are having with your vehicle I might be able to help you.

if it's the starting circuit, here is a wiring diagram

My son changed a firing coil and spark plug and wire on the #3 cylinder. The car started and ran fine. It had been missing before that.
Somehow, my son turned the key the wrong way while he trying to turn the car off. It made a grinding sound, then died. Then, the car no longer would even crank to start. My son then replaced the starter.
Still won't start. I thought that possibly their might be a fusiable link blown, but I need to know where to look for it physically on the car. Now when he trys to start the car, you can hear a very faint click or two in the lower front engine compartment. It is not the solenoid on the starter. He got under the vechile and layed his hand on it, while I turned the key to try to start it.
A friend of my son mentioned that possibly it was a security issue, and the system won't allow it to start for some reason. THANKS Again for any help in getting the car to run again.
Re: 1998 Oldsmobile 88 Starting problems
check your starter relay in the underhood fuse panel.

it could be a passkey problem, is the security light on?
Re: 1998 Oldsmobile 88 Starting problems
Well, this afternoon, my son's friend figured out that it was the reader-chip in the key switch which was keeping it from running. He jumped it out and the car is now running.....Yeah !!! This is the second time that switch has died. We had the first replaced. But, thank goodness it is running again.
