Changed front turn signal on '03 Buick Century with car running. Car died and will not start. All lights on dash operate, headlights and radio operate. Cannot find a fuse that is blown.


Did you short something out ? Do you have a SECURITY light lit on the insturment cluster ? anti-theft system problem . Will not start how ? does the engine do anything when you turn the key to the start position ? A - crank no start or no crank - no start ? If the engine cranks an doesn't start , is there spark at plug wires ? Is there fuel ? An anti - theft problem will let the vehicle engine crank but not start an run , disables fuel injectors .

Wont start with key


Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.

I was driving my 2001 sukuie down thestree, it just died like you yurned the key off and it would not restart, hauled it home and now need to find the problem, it has pleanty of fuel.the lights in the...


wont CRANK or CRANKS Fast but will not start , which is it?
the fuses blew or the battery is dead (discharged)
battery voltage is 12.6vdc rested, if not and is lower, its discharged.

did warning lights come on before the STALL? (died is stall)
if yes, and the charge lamp came on, and was ignored this is normal
for the battery to die. with alternator dead.

try jumper cable starts yet? that be next after fuses. and battery volts. (no cranking)
if it cranks fast, still fuses. check. then check for spark if not a diesel. some GV have Diesels, (3 kinds too)

Car goes completely dead. Drove car for a while and after a short stop at the post office tried to start the car but completely dead. After about 10 minutes car it regained electrical and started again....


does goes completely dead mean it stops running while going down the steet or maybe only when you come to a stoplight? if it runs ok and just will not start as it sounds when you return after a short period of parking it.there are several oter things unclear.when you turn the key to start it do you hear the usual sounds like the engine is turning but it just wont run=one issue.if you hear nothing at all= dead baterry, loose connection in the wiring, bad starter. it sounds like the starter is working but the engine will not run.this could be a problem with the ignition system= computersystems =crank sensor. or fuel supply problems. nothins easy anymore. sorry.
