I have a 97 and the answere is that olds locks up the engine after several miss starts. put the key in then turn it to the on position and bump the key forward as if to start it but then release the key and leave it in position for 10 minutes. Now turn off the ignition for 10 seconds then turn it towards on but do not try to start it for 10 more minutes. Now again turn off the ignition for 10 seconds then turn it towards on but do not try to start it for 10 more minutes. On the third time you turn it off for 10 seconds and turn the switch to on the engine will start. It works my 1997 does it all the time. Larry
