Question about 1995 Buick Regal

1995 Buick Regal won't start or even jump start....

My son's 1995 Regal has been starting just fine. Went out to start it this afternoon, and it wouldn't even turn over. Just a clicking noise. Tried to jump start it - nothing ... just the same clicking noise. Is this a starter problem ?

    Same problem with my 95 regal it had been starting fine, stopped for gas and car would'nt start just clicking sounds. Make sure you have good connections when jumpstarting the battery is buried deep not easy to get to. it took a couple of tries and starter spun fine I used the pos accessory post and engine block for a good connection. Charged battery and it held a charge . Alternator was bad and I now Know that the batt dash warning light was burnt out. I was running on battery power for a couple of days till there was not enough battery power left to crank engine

The clicking noise is the solenoid sending a signal to the starter, likely your starter is pooched. There is a way to bypass the starter by touching a screwdriver to two of the posts on the starter (which is under the engine), I think the two right posts? (Watch your fingers, the fan may come on when it starts!) I had this same problem, this got me through the day until I could get it to my mechanic.

    What do you think it is if you cross the terminals and it turns over but won't stay started?

Slow charge the battery up for 3 days on a trickle charge and see if it still does it.

If it does, maybe a new battery is in order.

Batteries last only 3 years on average.

Good luck.

Fuel pump, fuel pressure will read within specs until the pump gets hot, and sometimes this shows up intermittently, I discovered this with my Moms 96 Buick Regal, it was such an intermittent symptom / problem that I couldn't find the problem for about 6 weeks of troubleshooting, but I stumbled on the fuel pump not holding pressure(even after testing many times) then that one time I caught it, and replaced it and that fixed the problem.
Good Luck !

Hey there, how do I check the codes, how to jump


The codes have nothing to do with starting or not starting the car. No start means it is either getting no fuel or no spark. The codes are to diagnose a driveability or emission problem.

My wife's 1995 Buick Regal has no power


Sounds like a dead cell/shorted battery. 3 years is a little soon but with the fact that you recently replaced the alternator, I would suspect that your battery is done! Even a weak battery will let you jump one, bad cables usually will let you jump one, but a shorted/bad celll in a battery will prevent them from taking a jump. good luck

Check the Tension on the Belt. If it is even a Little loose it will not allow the Battery to Charge. Check the Alternator Also.
