    That is very helpful. I tried to remove the shroud around the steering wheel. It appears that the steering wheel will have to be pulled to get to the ignition switch. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I just bought a 1999 Aurora for $500.00. It's in good shape. But sometimes it won't crank without a jump start. When I put the key in the ignition and crank it. It just clicks. The lights, Radio and other stuff turnes on but the car won't crank. Without a jump.

Definately the ignition switch. The main relay has 2 sides to it. Its turns everything on like fuel pump ecu and ect. when the key is in the start position. Then the other side of it is the simply run side which keeps everything on but disengages the starter. You can fix it by taking it apart but its better to just go ahead and get a new one. I dont think they are that expensive.

1999 dodge ram van 3500 starter engages while engine is running only in park or neutral. Had to pull starter relay to disengage starter, also starter relay somehow connected to blower motor high speed

Check ignition key switch wiring. Could be a short between blower motor wiring and starter wiring. Try switching on high speed blower when ignition is on only (not started). If the starter cranks, then there is surely a leakage/short in the wiring.

Starter will not disengage after

It sounds like the "bendix drive" is gone in your starter. This is the assembly that engages and disengages the starter to the engine. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the starter. Hope this helps.

Lexus rx 300 starter issue

In the old days, a coil spring on the starter pinion gear would disengage it when starter power was removed. Nowadays, the retraction mechanism probably is inside the case with only the pinion sticking out. The pinion could be binding, preventing the retraction mechanism from woring or the mechanism could be defective. In either case, the starter should be removed and checked.

99 Aurora. 2nd starter. Car sometimes won't start. Sounds like starter solenoid. When it doesn't start, I turn the key and hear solenoid click. Mechanic claims it's not the starter. This happens about once...

We had the same issue on an 2001 Aurora. I left it for a year before it finally annoyed me enough to fix it. In our case it was the starter. The only difference was we didn't get a click of the solenoid when it happened.
I would guess the starter OR the alignment of the starter. If the starter is not aligned properly, sometimes when the solenoid engages it does not throw the gear out into the flywheel properly.
The "starts with a jump" doesn't make any sense to me. If this is really the case I would look at the battery and connections for an issue. If you do not have enough power to engage the starter properly this could be the issue.

As soon as I turn the key to the on position, the engine turns over

The problem is either in the mechanism that pushes the rod that activates the ignition switch from the key lock cylinder, or the ignition switch is defective.
