Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora
Ok! Quick! Make sure the battery connectors are clean and tight.
Next, Test to see if the battery has enough charge in it. To do this: Turn on your high beam head lights. If they are very dim or get dim when you try and start the engine, your battery is weak and needs a charge or replacement or one or both cable connections require cleaning.
If the lights don't get dim, your starter motor, the attached starter solenoid or an electrical connection to or between them may be defective and require cleaning, tightening or replacement.
Ok... Turn your lights off...

Sounds like a bad battery. Try jumping the vehicle. If it won't start from a jump then you need to look at the Solenoid.

It could be:1. the battery is flat, in which case recharge the battery OR jump start the vehicle OR, PROVIDED YOUR CAR DOES NOT HAVE AUTOMATIC GEARS, get somebody to push the car while the driver is in the driving seat and the car is in second gear and the ignition is turned on ---- ; OR2. there is a loose connection from the battery to the starter motor OR a loose connection between the battery and the earth (where the lead from the battery is connected to the body of the car) OR there is dirt at one of these connections which is inhibiting the current. Solution in these cases is to check the connections, clean them and reconnect.Best of luck!

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

Sounds like you might need a new starter. If the lights and radio still come on, then you may need a new battery.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
