no it was done at home. i checked the connection and it is solid.
my mistake. i just bought the car a month ago private party but i found the mechanics receipt. it was done at a mechanic shop 2 months ago.
i have seen a lot o people who have had pumps go bad by merely running out of gas. they put gas in but car wont start. end up putting in new pump. also seen lots of after market pump failures usually under a yr after replacement. so if your pump is getting power but not running/running right that would be my guess.

Our Aurora (1995) also won't start the first time you turn the ignition on, maybe not even the 2nd, or 3rd,... today it took at least a dozen attempts, and it finally started. It has taken a while to realize it is something to do with the electrical system. We have had triple AAA start the car for us a few times; we have had a variety of mechanics service the car - because the dealer could not diagnose the problem, just let it run with the "SERVICE REQUIRED" lit up on the panel. Those servicing the car have tested and replaced the battery (expensive), replaced the alternator (more expensive), and replaced the started switch, all to no avail.. We now think all the problems the vehicle has are related to whatever electrical/computer glitch is in the vehicle - it is not mechanical. Now the speedmoter needle bounces furiously from 0 to 150, messages keep poppong up on the message panel: "PASSKEY SYSTEM FAULT", ERROR CODE "32", bells ring, lights flash, and it goes on. We think that the times we or AAA jump-started the car, if we'd just turned the key in the ignition a few more times, it probably would have started anyways. Other than 'just keep turning the key and pausing between attempts', any suggestions would be most appreciated

Ok my aurora is having same issue but was caused by different situation. My 95 aurora got stuck in the mud on an inclined driveway, (there was no way to turn around)front was raised. I gave it gas to get it unstuck and backed it on out to leave. It drove sluggish but still got gas...until we started up a hill that raised the front end up high again. We started losing pressure and then it stopped altogether. This was at night and it was pitch black! Every time we tried to re-start it would not get gas. We finally had to back it down to a flat spot, have a friend tow it with their truck. They tried tapping the fuel filter, adding 108 octane, checked the jet, regulator still wouldn't start. Finally had it towed and here it sits 4 months later and still won't start! I had several car savvy people troubleshoot, even the tow-truck driver, my brother helped over the phone but I wouldn't just let any person get in deep, I love the aurora! It had bout half tank of premium grade fuel when this occurred, basically still does. I've never run out of gas and don't think I've ever run it low enough to cause a issue. I also NEVER had a problem with this car before & it was used in 2006 & when I bought it had a great warranty history. The nearest dealership cost a fortune! Local tow company is outrageous (both are only 10 mins from each other!). I could shop around for a local mechanic BUT do I really want a backyard mechanic fooling around with an aurora? No offense but its a high-tech ride in my opinion & most local mechanics and regular folks around my area have no idea what the auroras can do! Sorry so long. Please help! Any ideas?
