Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Okay, lets see if i can help, first the radio, the radio on some off these models stay on until a door is opened, next is the windows and loccks check the wiring coming into the door it where the door hinges are if the door is open look in the middle you will see a rubber boot, the boot must be pulled back and foward a little cutting of the rubber is needed to slide start by pulling and take a good look at each wire the problem is that a wire or some of the wires break in half from opening and closing the door also check the connector at the door switch, make sure its plugged in good, i think you will find broken wires, last is the no start, sounds like a lot of money was spent, lets start with the fuel try spraying starting fluid into tthrotlebody and see if it runs a few sec, then dies if it does then is the common problem the fuelpump,when spraying the starting fluid have someone hold gas peddal to the floor so it get inside the intake then release pedal and hook up intake hoses and start. if it doesnt start then check for spark , remove a plugwire and stick a screwdriver into the boot and place close to a ground and have someone crank the motor while you see if it sparks, if it does then its got to be a fuel problem, try these checks and let me know what happens, hope this helps, good luck.
