Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
Car won't start it takes numerous tries with the key before it cranks up. Everything turns on but just don't start on first try it takes at least 10- 20 mins. before 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.
