Question about 1992 Cadillac Fleetwood

Open Question

Car wont crank, starter assembly good,buzzing sound behind dash, lights on

I have a 1992 Cadillac Fleetwood FWD 4.9L V8. I cant get it to start or even turn over. Battery is good, starter and soloinoid are good. I can even crank it with a screw driver by touching the 2 leads at the starter and the key in the on position. I at one point tried to troubleshoot and i tried turning the key to on but not attempting to crank and i left it in that position for about 5 minutes then turned it the rest of the way and it would crank but you shut it off and try again right away nothing would happen. Now it wont even do that. I thought maybe some sort of relay but I couldnt figure out whats what. Also I took the glove box out and theres this silver box i think its the BCM, mounted a little to the left and its making a buzzing sound atleast i think thats what it is. Im wondering if thats it before I make a major purchase. Also the anitlock, traction off, lights are on and sometimes the security light comes on and off. Im wondering if its all because of the BCM or whatever. Help me please Im so sick of this car.

All my lights in my 1993 fleetwood brougham turn on, but when I try to start it, it don't start or crank.

Is the security light lit up on the dash when it wont start? If so, you have a VATS security issue. The system will actually turn off the starter if it feels that it is being stolen. It thinks its being stolen when the chip in the key doesnt communicate with ignition/lock cyclinder. Or if the security computer is going out. (it's called the TDM) If that light is on, its a dead give away that the vats is messed up. If no light, id try a good charge on the battery. Sometimes the lights will work fine but you dont have those cranking amps that you need to start.

Car won't turn over, has power to dash from ignition

ignition switch. the one in the column where the key goes into. not exactly an easy replacement due to the airbag location as sometimes the mount screrws for the key switch retainer will be between the wheel and the column assembly requiring the wheel to be removed.

I have a 1992 cadillac fleetwood fwd, 4.9l wont crank. Starter is good though

Seems to be my mantra lately but i suspect it's the time of the year where there is alot of condensation. Locate the starter relay. very likely in the engine compartment close to the battery. it has fuses/relays in it. remove the lid and if you are lucky there is a label under the lid that will tell you which fuse/relay is it. change it then try it out.
