Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora

5 Answers

1996 Olds Aurora will not start.

Hello, can you please help me?
I have a 1996 Olds Aurora that was getting progressivly harder to start over a few months time. Motor would crank and crank and crank, but not fire. Would eventually catch and run, sometimes with a mini-backfire. After it started in the morning, it would run fine and start any other time of the day. Then on the way to work one morning, I was at a red light and it was running fine, then all of a sudden, it stalled. Since then, I have not been able to get it to start again and am out of ideas. Please help....

I had the same problem with my 96 Aurora. I guarantee it's the fuel pressure regulator. Had mine replaced by GM dealer started like a new car

Hi, I had the same problem with my dad's 1996 Aurora. It was hard starting and backfire sometimes but when started up it ran fine. I had to change the fuel pressure regulator and never had any trouble since. Just to confirm read forums on the Aurora owners sight.

My 1996 olds aurora will not start. The security lite comes on and tells me to clean key, wait 3 min. No longer starts at all.


Your ignition key has an embedded chip.
If you have a spare, try that, don't use a simple copy that has no chip. You can use that copy for the doors, etc, but not the ignition.

You might turn key "upside down" if you get the same message again.

If you don't have a spare, a locksmith willhave to program a new key for you ($50) at Ace Hardware or True Value. ... Dealer ($80)

Hope this helps!
