A tune up might be in order. By tune up I mean spark plugs, Distrubtor cap and rotor button and plug wires. I would also check the timing and replace the fuel filter.

Absouetly nothing happens when the ignitionis turned to start position


Don't worry or panic, This is very Common in Auroras especially with the 3.5 engine. I can't guarantee it will always start when you wait a while. But till this day my aurora does the same thing, no sound from the starter at all, then it starts. There is a good chance its the crank sensor. Not a hard or expensive job, just sucks if that ends up not being the problem. Its one of the problems with my aurora but am not exactly sure if that's whats causing it to randomly not crank. My advice just wait A while. when my aurora finally cranks, the rpm jumps and reads backwards.

2001 oldsmobile aurora cranks but wont start


Yes your brother is partially right. the code says that it is the sensor circuit. so test the sensor and the wires. Does it seem to turn over faster than usual? if so your suspicions would also be correct (timing belt).

I have a 1996 Olds Aurora...it turns over, but takes longer then normal to start. It's like it doesn't catch right away. If it was the starter or starter relay connecters then it wouldn't turn over at all....


maybe the fuel pressure regulator bleeding down while parked. Take a fuel pressure tester and hook it up, cycle key to gain optimal fuel pressure, turn key off and monitor fuel pressure. It should hold at around 20 psi.

MIGHT HAVE TO DO THE RELEARN PROCEDURE LIKE THE DEALERS DO.....PUT KEY IN IGNITION AND TURN TO RUN POSITION,,, DO NOT CRANK,,,, LET STAND FOR 10 MINUTES.... THEN TURN OFF KEY AND THEN BACK ON FOR ANOTHER 10 MINUTES. THE FOR THE LAST TURN OFF THEN BACK ON FOR LAST TEM MINUTES..... FINALLY TUR KEY ALL THE WAY OFF,,, TAKE OUT KEY.,,,, PUT KEY BACK IN AND TRY TO START... IF NO START THEM REPLACE KEY ONLY FROM DEALLR

Engine wont start


Try this: attempt to start car. Leave key in "on" position for 10 minutes. Turn key off for 30 seconds. Attempt to start car. Leave key in "on" position for 10 minutes. Turn key off for 30 seconds. Attempt to start car. Leave key in "on" position for 10 minutes. Turn key off for 30 seconds. This lengthy proceedure is the pass-lock relearn. Should crank after this unless something is unplugged, body control module is bad, or other security issue.

Car won't start it takes numerous tries and then it cranks up.


IF the starter is cranking and it just won't start...I recently repaired an Aurora in this condition. Turned out to be a simple, but really tricky problem. Fortunately I noticed that the electric fuel pump was not running. (In my case the car would crank but just never start) I traced this circuitry and found and intermittent ground connection in the cable connection going to the fuel pump and sensors.

Fortunately in the Auroras you can expose the connection at the pump by removing the access panel in the trunk.

Difficult to diagnose and find - easy to repair.

If the starter is not cranking, could be a stuck solenoid - new starter.
Could be related to the transponder in the key.
Could be the starter relay.
Could be the ignition switch contacts - I have had one of these go on me as well.
