Oldsmobile Intrique. Question: the fuel gauge wont move how do i fix it?
Answer: The most common cause for a fuel gauge not working or inaccurate is the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank. This sensor is a resistor and can corrode over time. Have had a few bad connections and broken wires in the harness that plugs into the fuel tank unit, but usually the sensor.

Answer: A few possibilities-The CRANK relay or connections is faulty. An ignition switch problem. The ignition switch sends power to many of thee cars systems. If faulty, you may notice some other electrical problem- like no dash warning lights, clicking in the dash, etc.
Or a security problem. A common cause for this is a faulty ignition cylinder. Also know as the passlock cylinder. When it does not crank, note if the security of theft light is on or flashing after releasing the key during a no crank condition. Releasing the key, not turning it off. If the security light is on, this may indicate a passlock cylinder problem. Of course this is assuming there is no non-factory alarm or remote start system on the car. These are also common for causing starting problems.
