  • emmettjames Nov 27, 2008

  • emmettjames Nov 27, 2008

  • emmettjames Dec 02, 2008

    i got it started now there is an irreguler knock what is this it does not sound like the rod



  • emmettjames Dec 02, 2008

    yes its a court low and i was driving it back and forth from the store before i had it rekeyed



  • emmettjames Dec 02, 2008

    when it was rekeyed the locksmith killed my batterry thats were all the trouble started but like i said once it did start it has a very iregular knock unlike the knock of a piston and it is a metalic knock

    this car has not been started for 6 months put a new battery in and i override the emmobilizer but it still just sits there and cranks no firing but it also has 45 pounds of fuel pressure and spark.

REMOVE BATTERY TERMINALS AND CLEAN REINSTALL AND TRY TO BOOST AGAIN BEFORE YOU SPEND OUT ON STARTER OR MORE EXPENSIVE ITEMS

    THEN MAY NEXT SUGGESTION IS TO REMOVE STARTER AND HAVE IT TESTED OFF THE VEHICLE AT AUTO SUPPLY STORE THEY WILL TEST IT FOR FREE , BEFORE YOU FEMOVR IT MIGHT TRY TAPPING ON IT WHILE SOMEONE ELSE IS HOLDING THKEY IN THE START POSITION ( A OLD BROOM HANDLE GOOD FOR THIS TAP HARD ) CHECK TERMINAL ON STARTER MAKE SURE TIGHT ( much less amperage req for lights than starter so it is possible to pass voltage and not enough current to starter )

    IF CANNOT AFFORD TO REPLACE BATTERY , RUN BATTERY ALL THE WAY DOWN AND RECHARGE AT RAPID RATE FOR ONE HOUR , IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A CHARGER OR CAN GET SERVICE CENTER TO DO IT FOR A SMALL FEE THIS WILL SOMETIMES CLEAN THE PLATES IN THE BATTERY CELLS AND WILL GET A LITTLE MORE LIFE OUT OF BATTERY DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK BUT SOMETIMES WILL GIVE A LITTLE MORE SERVICE GOOD LUCK

The starter on a 1990 buick le sabre clicks once when trying to start but won"t start


if the starter justs clicks once and all the lights stay bright i would say the starter is going bad. sometimes as a test ,you can tap the starter and if it works, it points to a bad starter

My buick lesabre is having problems starting. the battery is charged, the lights come on when i turn the key but when i try to start it all i get is a click. what is the problem and how can i get to where...


Typically a battery can power the lights, etc. and still not start the car when it is "bad". The clicking is the starter not getting enough juice from the battery. Jump start the car and go to an auto parts store and get the battery checked. I suspect it will need replacing. In my 2002 the battery is under the back seat but there is a jumping post under the hood.

IT NEEDS A NEW STARTER. WHEN I TRY TO CRANK IT ALL I HEAR IS THE STARTER CLICKING.


Make sure it is not your battery, try jump starting and see if it makes a differance.

Ive got a 99 buick lesabre that will not start. Its not even turning over when i turn the ignition switch. My battery is new, and the alternator is good. Could my starter be bad? Its the 3600 series V6.


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.

93 buick lesabre 3.8 liter starter replaced,new one just clicks


Given the steps you have taken, only one of two things this can be is a resistive connection between the battery and the starter solenoid terminal. Or the battery itself has a bad internal connection. Bear in mind: you cannot crank the engine through the average set of jumper cables unless the battery in the dead vehicle will hold and deliver a good charge. Jumper cables are not really intended to start the car, they are for boosting the good, but low battery in the car being jumped.

Would appreciate your help


It could be anything. Please describe "doesn't start", do you get power to you dash/headlights, etc? Does the starter wind up, and make a high whining sound. Does it crank very slowly, and die. Does it crank normally, but the engine refuses to fire?
