Check at the alternator with a meter to see if it is charging there and if the gauge is reading accuratly because it sounds like it is shorting to ground on the way to the gauge

1989 buick park avenue battery wont stay charged


A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

1995 Buick Park Avenue when motor gets warm oil pressure starts to drop, no noise in engine, no rattling or knocking the oil pressure just drops what could cause this, oil sending unit/oil pump how can I...


These sending units are known to fail, a replacement is about $25. I had a Bonneville that did the same thing. The only real way to test it is to remove the electronic sending unit and test it with a manual gauge. In my case I had 40 psi of oil pressure with the manual gauge but the dash would read 5-10psi.

Check the votage of the battery with a volt tester in the DC mode and the probes reversed ( black on red red on black) if a reading of voltages shows of any amount, the diode is bad in the altenator

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.


Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.

How to change a voltage regulator for 95 Buick Park Avenue


The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator. It's better to replace the whole alternator then to just replace the regulator. The regulator and other parts like the bearing all have about the same amount of life time, unless the battery is weak which can put extra taxes on the regulator. Good luck and hope this helps.
