Question about 1995 Buick Riviera

1995 Buick Riviera

Sometimes when I turn my ignition to start my car I get a buzzing sound and the car doesn't turn over. After 1 or more attempts it will start. Could this be associated with the the chip in my ignition key not making the resistance required for the security? well i am having the same problem but i did not hear a buzzing sound the car would not start

Even with a fully charged battery, if the terminals are oxidized, you will have a "break" in the connection when the electrical demand is high (starter draws more than just about anything else in vehicle)
Before worrying about anything else, remove the battery leads and clean them (both on battery and inside surface of cable ends. This cures over 80% of most starting problems and MUST be done before any further testing, or values obtained for tests will be inaccurate.

It wont start it turns over but spark plugs arent firing


Check the voltage to the ignition coil...Sometimes there are several signals from emission sensors to the ECC that will stop the coil pulser circuit. For instance the "Crankshaft Position Sensor.

Good Luck

1995 Buick Riviera Horn starts honking on its own.


the older cars like that have little contacts that touch each other and if they touch the hor blows. the cover needs to be taken off and readjust the contacts. its alot more difficult when there are airbags. so DO NOT attempt if there are airbags in the car. very dangerous

My 1995 buick riviera won't start. It won't turn over. You can't hear a click when you turn the key.


it sounds like the starter motor relay could be bad. You also can be looking at a dead battery. Try jumpstarting the vehicle.

My buick riviera wont stay started


Mine did the same thing, it apparently was the mass airflow sensor, however the computer module also had to be replaced. It runs fine now!!

Do the interior chimes and headlights turn on when you turn the key in the ignition???? We have a 95 Riv that gave us the same problem. Occassionally we have to put the key in the ignition, turn it on, move the steering column up and down (sometimes roughly) until the chimes etc. come on (some security thing) then the car will start.
