    My 1995 Buick Park Avenue has same problem...I left it at the Dealership for literally "over one whole year" in hopes of their being able to figure this out but, unfortunately, they were not able to solve this same mysterious problem. They replaced the computer and the fuel pump and removed the fuel "GAS TANK" twice.thinking it might be related to the baffels in the gas tank...but the problem persists. It will crank and run fine untill it decides not to then blah! it just dies where ever and when ever it wants to. The starter will spin over like a top. It just won't start... Any ideas? codes from computer...old one or new one??? Thanks in advance for any help. Rick Howard

    Hello there, my problem is similar. My 1995 Buick park ave will, now after three years of ownership, turn over but not start. I figured out that if i leave the key in the on position or just let it set for 2-3 min it will start. Problem is i can be anywhere and park it come out and have to sit for God knows how long. Inconvienient and embarising! Can anybody help with a REAL SOLUTION! I have been told it was in the security feature, relay, and have paid money to no avail, so i need an actual solution short of trading it in, i can't function not knowing if my car will start from one day to the next!

    The starter works fine, battery full, and I have tried the advice of turning the ignition on for 10 minutes, off for 10 minutes..repeat 3 times-still nothing. I have been told it is the sensor wires in the ignition not picking up the signal from the key--is there a home remedy?

    My Park Avenue will die on me when driving down the road. It will eventually start. I also don't know if or when it will start. It may start for days and then not start. We have replaced the fuel pump, and some other minor electrical things but still the problem persist. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

    I got this off another site: ok this system is very easy to bypass.take a multi meter and set it to ohms.measure the resistance of the resistor in the key.side to side of lead on one side and the other lead on the other side it should give you a reading of OHMS.then swing by a shop that installs after market alarms or remote starters.they have sets of resistors they use when they bypass these systems for remote starts.either get a resistor from them or even radio shack as close to the reading you got when you measured your key pellet.THEN get under the steering column and there will be 2 small wires (usually white)they should run up to the ignition lock threw the steering column.make sure you have found those 2 wires cut them and splice back the wires(harness side NOT the cut wires running up to the lock) put one end of the resistor to one of the wires and the last end to the last wire.that should tell the module you have the correct resistance all the time and allow it to run and start just fine(the only other way to fix it is to replace the ignition lock cylinder.those small wires that go into the lock cylinder love to break and cause this problem

Mine had the same problems and my buddy replaced my vacuum lines and my battery and seems to be OK. Now, though, if I turn it off for just a few minutes on a hot day, it won't start.

95 Park Avenue Ultra dies for no reason I can find, I've replaced the crank sensor, cam ssensor, spark module, fuel filter, I've had the injectors tested, fuel pump tested, plugs & wires t

As you have probably figured out by now, you will have to treat it as a no start and troubleshoot it when it fails to start. Until you figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel to the injectors when the engine dies you have no direction to go in.

The car wont start, it will turn over but wont start. What could be the problem?

two things you need to check, spark and fuel. If there is no spark than you can focus on things like ignition modules, coils, crank sensors. If there is no fuel pressure than you can focus on the fuel pump, if there is power to the pump, are the fuses good.

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.

Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.

95 buick park avenue ignition problem

What is the fuel pressure it has to be at least
  1. Ignition "OFF" for 10 Seconds.
  2. With ignition "ON," engine "OFF" and fuel pump running, pressure should be 333-376 kPa (48-55 psi). For additional fuel pressure testing, See: Computers and Control Systems\Testing and Inspection\Symptom Related Diagnostic Procedures\A - E Charts & Related Test Procedures\A Charts\Chart A-7 Fuel System Diagnosis
  3. Have you tested the compression?
  4. A totally plugged cataltic converter can cause tis too because the engine cannot breathe
  5. to verify a plugged cat connect a vacuum guage to manifold vacuum and ccrank the engine you should get at least 2-4" of cranking vacuum providing the timing chain has not jumped and the cat is not plugged
If you find this information helpful please give me a good rating
