Buick riviera start problem

Hi, I have a 1995 buick riviera that will not start. The engine does turn when I turn the key, but it just will not start.

At first it would suddenly die on the road, and after a few tries it would start, but now the only thing that happens is the engine turning but does not start.
thanks, for your help.

    I had the same problem where my riviera wouldn't start, but after a few tries it will start. I ended up replacing my starter and the car starts fine, but a few days later my car shut off and wouldn't start. I have a brand new battery and alternator.

1995 riviera security light is flashing and engine will not start. How do you reset security so it will start?


Let the car sit undisturbed for 10 - 15 minutes, then try to start it. Check the owners manual if you have it. Sometimes, on various cars letting them sit awhile will allow the system to reset itself. On others sometimes rapidly turning the key from off to on, without turning to start 3 to 8 times within 10 seconds and then on the last turn to the on position leave it there until the horn chirps, at that point turn the key directly to start, or turn off first and turn to start. If all this fails, a GM dealer can reset the system.

1995 Buick Riviera SC: traction and the security light


traction switch is located next to drivers left knee on bottom of dash....you should be able to turn off the traction light there by just turning on the traction control.....the security light is telling you that there is a problem with your security system....could just need a new key with a new computer chip....make sure the key is clean and dry when using so it can read the chip....the security light comes on whenever your start the car and stays on for approximatley 2 minutes and then should go out....it is just a reminder....try this and see if it works....lock the door using the power switch on door.....close door and see if the security light comes on....watch and it should go out after about 2 minutes...if it does then your alarm is activated and working....to disarm you need to unlock the driver door with the key...anything else will set the alarm off and the lights will start flashing and the horn honking...after you set the alarm off you will always have to use the key to unlock the drivers door to turn off the alarm and reset the security system.

My 1995 buick riviera won't start. It won't turn over. You can't hear a click when you turn the key.


it sounds like the starter motor relay could be bad. You also can be looking at a dead battery. Try jumpstarting the vehicle.

Do the interior chimes and headlights turn on when you turn the key in the ignition???? We have a 95 Riv that gave us the same problem. Occassionally we have to put the key in the ignition, turn it on, move the steering column up and down (sometimes roughly) until the chimes etc. come on (some security thing) then the car will start.
