Thumbs down 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette Sometime Will Not Start

Once in a while Olds will not start.

Good battery (loud honk on 0.2 sec of the video). If it is running - runs great!

This is 3rd or 4th time in last 6 month the car simply will not start. Somtime starts in 10 or so minutes. Security light is not coming up. I am using a key to enter/lock the car. Not the remote.

Trying to start cluster lights, radio, AC goes down then comes back as the key is back to "on".

Today I filmed the process. Presented on YouTube is very end of it.

I noticed, first Switching gears will not active /deactivate door locks, second time (0.47) switching gears you can hear door locks clicking and the car starts.

Thank you!

Once in a while Oldsmobile Silhouette Premier will not start.

Good battery (loud honk on 0.2 sec of the video). If it is running - runs great!

This is 3rd or 4th time in last 6 month the car simply will not start. It would start later after some unfounded and un-explainable manipulations and prayers ...

When it will not start, the "Security" message is not coming up. I am using a key to enter/lock the car. Not the remote.

Trying to start cluster lights, radio, AC goes down then comes back as the key is back to "on".

Thank you!

I found this part on rockauto.

Also, a very quick fix to it, (until the part comes, surely!)

Will it work?

I can't remember the year they started doing it, but they put the P/N switch inside the tranny....why in the world did they do that? It was an easy replacement, now you have to remove the side cover....
