Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

Aurora won't turn over

My Aurora will not turn over. I drove yesterday, stopped the car to get the mail, and when I tried to restart the car it only clicks. I tried to jump the car, no luck. I put a battery charger on for hours, no luck.
I am wondering if the shift linkage could have something to do with it. I seem to have good power.
I pushed the car to my drive way and there it sits. Any suggestions??

    My wife drove yesterday with no problem. Went to start it today, got no indication of electrical power anywhere. Had to use the key because the remote wouldn't work, no lights on opening the dorr, no dash lights when key is inserted or turned, and of course no attempt to crank. Tried jumping the battery, it still has no indication of any electrical power flowing anywhere. totally dead.

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.

If the symptom really is that it only "clicks", then this sounds like you are describing the starter solenoid clicking. This typically occurs when you have a poor electrical connection to the starter or a weak or uncharged battery.

1. Make sure the battery is good. Putting a charger on it doesn't mean it is taking/holding a charge.
2. Turn on the headlamps - are they lit normally. If they are very dim, then the issue is power/battery.
3. There is an electrical connection under the hood next to the fuse block. Try jumping the car from another car using this connect and a good ground on the engine block. Make absolutely sure you have good connections on the cable when doing this.
4. If the car still just clicks - check the connections at the positive terminal next to the fuze block under the hood and also at the starter.
5. If the care still clicks - then it looks like the starter is the issue. You can try tapping it with a hammer while engaged to see if it will start - careful though. This happens sometimes when the solenoid engages but the high power connections are corroded - time for a new starter.

Have a 1999 chrysler seabring coup started fine yesterday morning drove kid to school came home put brakes on it started it pump the brakes few time put n reverse died wont start


HI,THAT IS A USUAL ISSUE RELATED TO THE ELECTROMAGNET WHICH IS ENGAGED ON "P or N" position.Charge your battery overnight,try your handbrakes,if they work fine,just leave the car in whenever you stop and put your handbrake on.This won discharge then the battery unless there is a unrelated electrical fault in the system.

My Oldsmobile aurora won't start. Battery still


The lights coming on are standard start-up checks.. The most likely issue is corrosion on the battery terminals. Pull them off give them a good clean up and try then. This is the most likely issue failing this it is probably the solenoid on your starter motor.

Jetta 95 won´t start


Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.
