Question about 1998 Buick LeSabre
I turn the ignition key forward and nothing from the starter. I turn the ignition on and was able to do the screwdriver trick on the starter to get it to turn over. It started and ran for about three seconds then died. Replaced the battery a week ago. I can get the starter to engage with the screwdriver but engine wont start. Not sure why the starter wont engage by turning on the key but bypassing the ignition and able to engage starter at the solenoid with a screwdriver but car wont start?
Do you have a Chip in the Key? if so that Could be the Problem,Ya see the chip is a resistor and if it looses its ELECTRONIC VALUE in its Case Resistance it wont start to test this Turn the Key in the ON posission then do the Screwdriver thing If it Starts Key is Good and Most Likely the Ignition (SWITCH) is Bad <<ELECTRICAL Side NOY LOCKEST SIDE For More Info Recontact Me
