1993 oldsmobile achieva S ignition problems

When you turn the key to start, it will start with the help of a remote starter hooked up under the hood, but you have to hold the key in the on position. If you move the key at all, the car immediately dies.

Check the ignition switch connector. Check for 12v on the start circuit with the ignition in the start position. Check neutral safety switch connector. Check for 12v in and out of the N/S switch when the gear selector is in neutral or park and the ignition is in the start position. If you have 12v there check at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. If you find 12v there and on the big terminal there would appear to be a starter problem.

Car starts with remote starter. The start procedure with key?


Well, it sounds like your ignition switch is bad or the remote starter you have also has an alarm with a starter immobilizer. Do you have the owners manual to your remote starter? If not you can always remove the immobilizer part of the alarm by hooking the start wire back together from the ignition switch that is cut when you hook it up.

95 olds achieva starter not engaging


The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

My 96 Oldsmobile decided not to stay running anymore,


Check the Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump. Also Check under the Hood and Look for a Fuse Relay Box. Inside this Box there should be a Relay for the Starter and Fuel Pump and Crank, Also after Replacing these Take a Flashlight and Check ALL the Fuses Really good in the Box under the Hood and the one Under the Dash on the Inside.. Replace these and let me Know how it goes.

Remote starter


The wire under the hood is for the hood pin switch, this wire when grounded will prevent the remote starter from starting, for trouble shooting I would leave this unhooked and make sure it is not touching any metal, also try to remote start your car with the key in the ignition swich if it remote starts you have a transponder issue if not post me and we can go from there
