Asked by Feb 15, 2013 at 08:12 PM about the 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Sadly, your keyed ignition switch is having a problem. Will shop for a replacement but I would assume this is a two hour job at $80/hour plus the switch would be around $50 (guess, could research further) talkin a couple of hundred to fix.
