Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue
11/24 - I have recently had a puzzling problem. I have a '92 Buick Park Avenue Standard. I backed my car into the garage, raised the car up, dropped the oil filter, drained the oil (while the oil drained I cranked the car for 1 minute and then turned off the car), and changed the air filter. I put on a fresh oil filter, and put oil back into the car. I went to crank the car. When I put the key into the ignition and turned the key, only the lights would come on. The starter would not engage. I took a screwdriver and placed it on top of the power and switch bolts on the celinoid, the starter engaged and crank, but stayed running for like 15 secs. We checked all the fuses, relays, and inline fuses we knew of with a volt tester and all checked out ok. Please help...very frustrating.
The computer did not read the resister in the ignition key, it says in the manual to wait 3 minutes then try again. it should work unless the contacts in the switch are worn or the resister in the key is worn enough not to make contact
