Positive is connected to the positive terminal on the battery and negative is connected to a ground point on the engine away form the battery. Under the Hood, on the passengers side, is a positive terminal with a red plastic cover. Put your ground on a metal part of the engine. No need to pull up the back seat to hook to the battery.
Check this stuff: Battery, Battery cables, Starter, A click usually indicates low power supply.
under the back seat
I just read that there was a recall on the fuel lines and other parts sometime in 2004. Google "recalls on a 96 olds aurora" and it will list it.
There should be a diagram of the belt's routing somewhere under the hood. There is on my Aurora.
I have a 96 Aurora. The battery (believe it or not) is under the back seat on the passenger side.

Possibly bad spark plug cable(s) (have you replaced them since 1996?)
Remove the intake manifold. The starter is underneath.
10-30...........change every 7K miles
for a 1997 olds aurora you have to press the engine "eng" button till you get to the "change oil now" then press and hold the reset button till it says "oil life 100%". it should be the same for a 96.
If the regulator is broken, you'll have to clip the cables to get to the window glass attaching bolts.Here's how to do ithttp://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/window-power-repair/replace-a-power-window-regulator
The spark plug gap on a 96 Olds Aurora should be set at .050, and they should be torqued at 11 foot-pounds.
i have two cables on my 2001 0utback i had to replace the engine now dont know to adjust the two cables need help.
Remove rear wheels and lubricate emergency brake linkage and cables--make have to disconnect and replace cables (back off adjustment) Lubricate and try to operate cables from under vehicle
I have an 89 and you unhook the battery for at least 30 seconds and hook it back up. TRY THIS FOR A 1995 CUTLASS 1) Unhook the positive and negative battery cables. 2) Wait 10 minutes. 3) Press the brake pedal in for 1 second 4) Touch the positive & negative cables together for 3 seconds 5) Hook the both cables to the battery. Start car. Just did today 10-24-209 Another way is to use an OBD reader to reset. This does not work on 96 cutlass using the innavo 3120 model reader from shucks
Need to know which engine and which transmission.
Same circuit/fuse as the parking/tail lights.
There should be a positive post in between the washer fluid tank and the relay box. It came with a stock red plastic cover with a "+" on it but this may have been removed by a former owner. Hook your hot or red jumper to that and you can ground the black jumper on any unpainted metal under the hood...like a motor mount bolt.
there is no such thing as a 97 caprice they stoped making them in 96
The starter on this car is located under the intake manifold, in the engine valley. Tech JK -------------
If the 1996 Olds Aurora will not start and there is a clicking noise from under the front panel, check the starter. The clicking noise is probably from the starter solenoid.
To set distributor timing on a VS 96 Golf 2.0, hook the timing gun up to the power. Ground the terminals on the battery and hook the sensor that accompanies the timing gun to the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
First, take the battery cables off then remove the battery hold down then remove the battery. Reverse order to install. Be sure to clean the cables.
Disk brakes on rear? My 96 aurora was simple The disk brake slave cylinder has to be screwed in after you get the caliper off. After that its just like any other disk brake pad replacement
