Why doesn't my 1971 Cutlass Supreme start?
The battery has some power, but is not completely charged. The lights are completely out. The car doesn't crank and is completely dead. What would cause this?
Put a fully charged battery in it. A half dead battery will will give you the problem you described.
Also check the battery terminals. Make sure they are free of corrosion and have a good solid connection.
