Sounds like a bad ground to me. Follow the negative cable to where it bolts to the engine or frame, undo the bolt and clean the mounting surface and bolt with a wire brush. This is what was wrong with my truck, and it had the same problem.

Check for bad connections art the battery. If they are good, get a volt meter and start testing the connections going back to the under hood fuse box. If everything is dead, you must have a blown fusible link or a bad connection somewhere between the battery and the fuse block.

SOURCE: Aurora won't turn over

If the security light comes on when you try to start it, you may need to wait three minutes to try to start it again. If the "computer chip" in the ignition key was not making good contact in the steering column when it was inserted. If the "security" light comes on after you initially try to start it, then wait three minutes, and try it again when the light goes off, if this is the problem. It happens occasionally with my piece of ---- Aurora. It may need to have a new key programmed.

Sir I can help you with this, I have all the service manuals on your truck and will provide anything you need, but this honestly sounds like a bad wire connection or ground on a primary battery cable. I would trace all my battery cables and clean every connection even the engine ground cable and the one at your starter. I will be glad to help you further, I can post step by step trouble shooting guides on your truck if you need them. Hope this helps.

Battery is in trunk compartment. Must be positioned exactly and locked down. Not easy to do and keep in position unless using BMW battery. There is a slight size difference (BMW wants to sell their batteries - at inflated price.) Save yourself the headaches and get BMW battery. In the meantime, just move your battery position a little bit until trunk light comes on. Car will start if trunk light is on - unless the problem is really something else. Hope this helps. Let me know.

How do i replace the starter on my North Star 32 valve V8 engine on my 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora?

Before you replace the starter check all your wiring to the starter, and I don't mean just look, I mean loosen the light and heavy connections, wiggle them to help remove any corrosion and retighten.
Check the heavy ground wire from batt to chassis/engine is good. As a secondary check, attach a jumper cable from batt neg terminal to clean engine casting in case ground cable is bad.

No power and batt is good

My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...

this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Titan will not start

I think that you have a harness problem. Check the negative batt. cable to see if its tight on the engine. Clean any corrosion. I would check all the grounds in the engine compartment. Very common, for those to corrode and cause problems. There are whole bunch of those in the engine area. There is one under the battery tray also. Check the grounds under the windshield washer bottle. those also corrode and mess up your CAN system in the truck , resulting in no start condition. If you are 100% sure that your battery is good, than check all ground wires.
