Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
My fiance has a 1997 Buick le sabre with under 100k. Every now and again it won't start. All the dashlights come on, but the car doesn't even attempt to turn over.
The security light stays on in the car. I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem or not.
When the car does start (which is most of the time) it runs fine.
whats wrong with the beast?
My wife has a 96 we had a similar problem. I believe that the connectors on the chip that is in the ignition key are worn out. The manual said that it is a safety feature on the car if someone tries to use a different key in the ignition or tries to punch it, it disables the car for like 3 minutes. We had a spare ignition key and switched to that and haven't had the problem since. Hope that solves your problem.
