OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS BATTERY PROBLEM

1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass • 112,000 miles

Drivers side window won't roll up. You can use the window crank with someone pulling on the window and get the window up, the window will roll down with the crank, just not up, can it be fixed

It sounds like the regulator may be bad.


Its not electric, just regular

It still has a regulator


Thank you, I have the door panel off, but i'm not that smart, I can see all the parts but don't know names or where they are are placed, if I knew where to look, I could pretty much figure it out

See pic There are rollers that are attached to the regulator. Check them to make sure the are good.

Let me know if you have other questions.


Still trying to figure out why my car won't start, it just clicks, got a new battery, turned right over, drove two blocks and now its just clicking again

Remove the battery cables, clean them and retighten them. Also, check to make sure the ground from the battery to the engine is clean and tight.

Thank you, no one suggested that, they suggested buy altanator, but it doesn't make sense to me, I have never had any trouble, the car always started right up, lights never dimmed, it does sound like battery down, it clicked on the old battery and it is clicking on the new battery like poor connection, also would the starter selinoid or starter do anything like that?I am 70 yr old lady but not senile lol
