#153 of 4482 Aurora Manual now available online....
Jun 01, 2002 (2:06 pm)
Hey what up peeps, I wanted to share the news with you all about getting your owners manual online from this website, if you still have not purchased your own. What you have to do is register with these website and you should be able to see your owners manual. Okay so the website is https://www.mygmlink.com/main/US/en/gm/home once you register you can keep a profile on your Aurora or GM vehicle. I wish I had found this website a while back, when I was waiting for manual to arrive from the Oldsmobile dealer. This website had the owners manual for my 1999 Olds Aurora, so I take it, it should have the manual for the earlier Auroras.

#157 of 4482 Parking Lights
Jun 07, 2002 (11:44 am)
I had this problem. It is a short in the manual light switch cause by too much grease. Drop the two panels under the dash, remove the shroud from around the steering column. This exposes the light switch on the right side of the column. Turn the light switch. You can see the contact through the holes in the switch. Get some electrical contact cleaner (aka brake cleaner) and spray it on the contacts while you rotate the switch. That should take care of it.

Oops. The switch is on the left side of the column.

Thanks a bunch Jim! Dealer wanted $600 to install new light switch...I did the cleaning thing yesterday and parking lights are fixed! The crazy
type screws on the steering shroud gave me a fit
however I bought a 3/16ths. nut driver and got them out ok...yea left side..no problem...figured you were facing car ha ha! On a different note...I installed a Amsoil oil wetted foam air
filter (which flows a bit more air than a K&N - a filters a lot better) and noticed my service engine soon light on afterwards...then it went off for a day and has come back on...seems like
I read where the extra air flow from using this type of filter will cause this until things re-adjust to the extra air??? Ever heard of such!
I still have a miss going on and I think it is the plug wire carbon tracking thing...AutoZone
told me they can get (2 days) Bosch plug wire set
for $69 and I am ordering them today and want to also order (on-line) Denso iridium plugs and
try and install this week...hope I can get to the back 4! Again....thanks...I owe you one!
#160 of 4482 Adjusting to the extra air flow?
Jun 09, 2002 (9:31 am)
Hmm, that sounds a bit fishy. At low rpm (as in regular driving, at least for some of us), the paper air filter will flow as much air as the engine can pull in. So a lower restriction air filter isn't going to cram extra, or too much, air in. Plus, the car can sense how much air is going in it. That's what the MAF does. The lower-restriction air filter isn't going to sneak extra air by it.
I mean, maybe it's some OBD-II thing that I've just never heard of, but I find that hard to believe. Even if you removed the filter altogether (which is certainly less restrictive than an Amsoil filter), I don't think the "SES" light would come on.
Jun 09, 2002 (4:05 pm)
Yea Robert...you are probally right...the SES light is off today...the missing still there...even spits back through intake several times under light throttle...full throttle just
surges or even runs fine at times???? Hope the new plug wires and Iridium plugs help! Seems i should not even be having to do this stuff at 41,000 mi. I hear some folks have had to replace
a coil and should all 4 be replaced when 1 is bad??? Thanks! Bullsender
#162 of 4482 Problem with sunroof
Jun 09, 2002 (7:12 pm)
My sunroof is acting up for the first time, It opens some what, but it won't close all the way, and the glass won't go up to lock mode or pop up mode without a couple of hand pushes. Anyone here had any problems with their sunroofs? And do you guys think it's covered under warranty? I took it to my some what local OLDS (if you can believe that in the Chicagoland Area there is only 2 local dealers close to me which are the Park Ridge and Highland Park OLDS) they stated that if it's not covered under my warranty it would cost me $90 dollars for them to take a look at it, that's wack though, will see what happens. I'll keep you guys post it.
