I just got thru with this problem on my daughters 96. It's either the ignition switch, or the I.P.C.(instrument panel cluster). If you turn the key to on and let it sit for 10-15 min. then turn the key off, then turn to start it should start right up. The key switch forgets it's code somtimes and this resets it. This will continue to happen from time to time so you do need to have this fixed by getting a new ing. switch or (and sometimes also) a new I.P.C. with the security system bypassed.
GOOD LUCK.

Check fuel pump and wiring (even if you have to take the pump out of the fuel tank).

I have a 96 achieva the cooling fan only powers on at start up for a second then shuts off and does not come on again what needs to be replaced and where can I find this part under the hood?


check your coolant level. there will be a temp probe in your coolant system. if this isn't getting coolant on it (due to being too low), it may prevent your fan from coming on.

Have a 96 Olds Acheiva. It starts and runs for about a second then quits. It will only start when the gas pedal is half way pressed. Any other position and it will not start at all. Is this the fuel...


If the security light is blinking, the car thinks its being stolen and has engaged the antitheft, passlock system. All you have to do is leave the key in the ignition, in the on position for about 30 mins... this will reset the passlock system, then your car will start.
