Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

Need a new battery..but what size?

I think my battery has gone dead...I tried jump starting it earlier today and it did. However, after shutting down after only 20 minutes or so, it wouldnt kick at all. Once again I jumped it..Nothing..inside lights come on, buzzer sound, windows will roll, but it does not crank. I let the other car run for about 10 minutes with the cables, but nada!
So if I replace the battery, whatz the amps that I should be looking for?

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.


The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

My daughter car battery went dead had a jump start but her cousin put the leads on the wrong terminal could this have blown the main fuse as no lights at all put new battery on today


Yes this will defiantly blow the main engine fuse. This fuse is located in the engine compartment and is usually bolted down with 10mm bolts.

Had a dead battery Thursday a.m. got a boost. Took it to have the battery tested. Guy told me it was 5 years old, testing not bad but recommended a new battery with winter coming. Today. dead battery...


There is a switch above the break peddle that is adjustable for the break lights. This is running your battery down that is why the gauges are jumping. Change the battery.. If it is 5 years old draining it dead will kill the cells. Hope this helps.

When turning key all the way over it simply does nothing what could it be


Hi,
You'll likely need a new ignition switch. (The electrical side) You can confirm this by pulling the lower steering cover when issue is occurring, and using a test light on the black and yellow wire when turning key to "Start" position. If test light doesn't illuminate, replace switch. (Easy)

Battery goes dead often. Must jump or charge almost everyday


perhaps your problem is not so complicated. maybe one of your vanity mirror lights arent shutting off or something. go out in your car at night and look for light after your dome light shuts off.
