Oldsmobile Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The inside door handle may break causing the door not to open from the inside.

Oldsmobile Owners' Reviews

Purchased Silhouette new in August 2000.
Vehicle has always been serviced with full synthetic oil.
Vehicle now has 129,000 miles and I have replaced the intake manifold gasket twice.
The transmission failed at 114,000 miles and had a total rebuild.
All brake lines had to be replaced at around 105,000 miles. Air shocks replaced due to failure (Delco) at 40,000 mile intervals.
Replaced starter twice as well as alternator at 121,000 miles.
The undercarrage has rusted away due to extreeme amounts of salt used on roads in winter even though the vehicle had a car wash with underspray every two weeks.
The steering rack and shocks replaced twice within 100,000 miles.
The list goes on and on.
The General strikes again!

Ran Great didn't give me any troubles

I purchased a 2000 Bravada in 2004 with 59000 miles on it. It has been very reliable and with the smart track gets through the snow great. I have never had engine problems but had to replace two motor mounts at 99000. The leather seats with heat are fantastic. I would trade up but Oldsmobile stopped making this model..to bad.

The brake light comes on and dings. The brakes are working and there does not seem to have a problem with emergency brakes. The dinging last about 15 minutes in warm weather, but will not stop dinging in cold weather. It appears to be affected by cold weather or cold engine.

Car giving me nothing but problems starting, new battery distributor rotor sparkplugs cam sensor spider injector and still gives me problems with initial starting. I am at wits end feul pressure is good .this is the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I need help any ideas.
