Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue

No Power to Starter

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

Stater park ave 92

Many "no start" situations on GM vehicles can be traced back to the security system. If there is a light on your dash that says security, this is you problem. Not the starter.

Make sure there are no leaks and that the system is full to capacity. After the vehicle has warmed up check radiator hoses for temperature differecial also check heater core hoses. A significant difference in temperature may indicate a plugged heater core or thermostat failure

92 buick park ave security light on car wont start

Someone put the wrong key (resistor value) in the ignition lock, you will have to disconect the battery for 3 min. Make sure you have the right key. Very important! Make sure the climate control is off before disconecting/conecting the battery.
