1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 012013

Aurora 8-cyl

  • 260,050 miles


Vehicle running in normal traffic on a city street, key switch just suddenly turned back and vehicle shut off. No braking, and no steering. Had to try and steer off to a safe place. Ongoing issue as the ignition switch is still in this condition endangering my life, my family's life, and the lives of others.

Car stalls once a day, almost every day in traffic. Sometimes it doesn't quite stall and catches itself and learches forward a few feet. Neither Oldsmobile or indipendent mechanics can find the problem. Tha codes are there in memory of the car but the codes do not say what to do about the problem. Know one knows what to do other than guessing and changing expensive parts.

Intermittently while vehicle is in park at residence, alarm will go off, also headlight and horn will come on. Dealer put vehicle on computer, but could not determine cause. Defect was possibly due to electrical problems.
