Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
I was told by the mechanic that the ignition switch had been replaced. I do not know if the passlock sensor (part of the ignition cylinder) was replaced or not.
I read about hundreds of people on line who have had the same problem as I. It is peculiar that I can't find a solution anywhere. This problem has been around for years and years
I put the key in the ignition and turn the key. Lights come on and all the electrical part of the car seems to be ready ......except the engine will not turn over. I try turning the key again and again with no result. I wait for a couple minutes and try again...the same thing happens (no start)........I wait again
Then...sometimes 3 minutes and sometimes 15 minutes later I turn the key and the car starts. This is the same story countless other Aurora owners share on the internet.
I thought the ignition cylinder had been replaced. I can check with the mechanic to find out for sure. Have you had this question before? Is this generally the source of the problem? Thousands ahead of me have had this problem....certainly someone out there mus know the answer.
Thank You...I hope it works
What size is your engine?
I searched and I even found several different possible causes, starter, solenoid, sensors, and the list goes on.
If your answer is "that it can be any number of different things", that is hardly an answer to my question. There appears to be a specific, recurring problem with the Aurora starter relays. I told you earlier that I spent a fortune replacing my starter and ignition. Auroras have a common starter problem. The symptoms on all Auroras are the same as I have described to you. I would like a specific answer rather than generalities....
I would like a specific answer to the Oldsmobile Aurora starter delimma. The problem is well known and someone must know the specific source of the problem. If no one at your location knows the answer then please rip up the credit card.
I am not satisfied with your answer
