Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre
New battery or not, pls run this test.
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

Check your battery terminal connections. If they are very secure and clean, you may have a cable connection issue at the starter. This is not a starter related issue.

Jump start it at the starter and see if it will turn over. If it turns over then check the fuesable link at the starter. If it does not turn over then your starter is probable not good.

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is faulty. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.
