Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Hello d Mclinden.
There are a couple of components between the ignition and the starter , one of which is a theft deterrent relay and the other the transmission range switch.
Have you tried to start in neutral or wiggle the shifter?
I'd be more suspicious of the theft deterrent though.
It also could be the tab on the key is sometimes not making contact in the ignition key barrel.
It needs to read the resistance value in the key. If the contact is bad it won't crank.
This will be tricky to solve as it is intermittent.
A good multimeter and a diagram of the system to check where the problem is when it is occurring will need to be done.
Here is a diagram, I hope it turns out large enough. If not, I can send a larger one to an Email address.
Thank you for using FixYa.
