Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
This could be several things. A common issue for this car is a faulty Pass Key system. It can ingage the Immobilizer feature in your Security device and it locks the relay from the ignition to engage the fuel pump and starter. Can you hear a low elecrtic winding hum when you turn it? I would say take it to a dealer or a good machanic and have a diagnostic ran.
If you want to see if its your Security lock out before a garage try relearning the key to the system
Turn key to ON leave on for at least 10 minuites. If security light flashes or stays on steady it should be relearning the radio sequence needed to start. After 10 minuites ( no less) turn key to off for about 30 seconds and turn to ON position again then again off for 30 seconds. Do this 1 more time and from OFF position attempt to start the engine.
If this doesnt work It could be the "smart chip" in your key or maybe the key you are trying is dirty or damaged. Try a different key that you dont use as often and this may work. Dont use valet key when attempting to get out of Lock out.
If neither of these work then it could be a number of things ranging from Needing a new key and ignition. Or it may be your something entirely outside the Pass Key system.
Again get it to a mechanic for a diagnostic if unsure
If it is your Security and you would be interesting in doing away with problem all together. You can Bypass the security relay system with a Bypass on. They are not full proof and cant just as easy have defects and wear out. They are alot easier to replace and run any where from 200-600 dollars from what Ive seen.I did this with my Aurora about 2 years ago and just very recently had an issue with my Bypass failing.
I hope this want over load and really hope it helps!!!
