Check your battery terminal connections. If they are very secure and clean, you may have a cable connection issue at the starter. This is not a starter related issue.

You still have a poor connection between the battery and the starter. Or a defective battery. (the headlights, if turned on will nearly go out when the key is turned to start)

How to change a starter on a 1998 Buick lesabre


Disconnect battery, locate starter wires [should be 3] make particular note of how wires are connected, then remove the two nuts that hold them in place, loosen and remove the two bolts keeping hold of starter to prevent it falling and remove starter. Replace new starter and it's two bolts, wires and nuts as previously hooked up, and then battery wire, and carank vehicle.

Where is the starter located on 1994 Buick Lesabre


You should probably have it fixed. I have a 98' LeSabre and am
wondering why the engine keeps blowing up. I have changed it
3 times now. Keep checking fluids and everything but still not having
any luck. So i hope the help i gave helps you.

Check for dirty battery cable ends,and if this is o k,then replace the starter,tapping on the starter while trying to start the engine will confirm this solution.If the starter turns over and starts the car doing this,replace the starter.

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.
