93 buick park ave fails to start

Sometimes my 93 buick park ave won't turn over. Had the batt & alt checked both were fine. Starter won't turn over or even click. However, if I try several hours later it will start, or sometimes it takes a day or two. Any ideas?

SOURCE: I can not find the neutral safety switch on a 2000 buick park ave

Any chance your vehicles have a security/alarm system. Disconnecting battery on some, will arm it sometimes & not allow it to run. Using key to unlock door, on driver & passenger side have been known to work on some vehicles, but if not, a call to dealer should help.

SOURCE: Car starts sometimes - sometimes it doesn't -

Try shifting the shifter when this happens to see if it is related to the PRNDL in the transmission; you of course will have to have the key in on possition to attempt this. If this doesn't work, you will need to take it to a quaified mechanic since there are serveral test that will be needed to be find this issue, but let me assure you that the security light comes on and blinks often when starting the vehicle.

My 1996 Buck LeSabre won't turn over. I took the starter off and had it checked, it was fine. I checked the starter fuses and all was fine. \ Cabling was fine to the starter, voltage was 12.54...


Be sure the AIR BAG/VATS fuse 10 amp, is good. there is a STARTER ENABLE RELAY up high on the left of the steering column. I ASSUME the anti theft light is not flashing?" at the STARTER ENABLE RELAY the YELLOW wire is hot in the crank mode and comes out large PURPLE to the starter. the small purple wire is hot in the crank mode if the fuse (air bag/vats) is good. the small yellow is grounded through the park switch and the VATS module (anti theft)

When I turn the key it just clicks instead of cranking. Lights and radio work


If it has been running fine until now...check the battery post connections for corrosion, and tightness...this is your cheapest and first inspection...Have you tried jump-starting? If so, and same symptom...the starter is locked, and worn out...sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer to release and start the car...if so, this confirms you shouold replace the starter instead of risking being stranded...the starter replacement on your Park Ave is not a big deal...It is a high powered small starter. Hope this helps.

Will start sometimes and wont start sometimes. batt is good. do you think it is the starter? it doesnt do it all the time


If the starter rotates [ turn-over ] the engine, then it isn't the starter. If it dosen't turn-over all the time, then it could be the problem. Other items that will cause issues are the nutrual saftey switch,or the igntion switch.
The starter can be tested in the car, many autopart stores will do this for free.

1991 buick park ave ultra their is loud sound by the starter area, it starts up fine no hesitation or whistling sound.


The starter drive may be staying engaged. Don't start or drive it until you have it checked-out, as it could also ruin the matching teeth on the flywheel. Replacing this would require removing either the transmission or motor.

Got 1988 buick park ave.car wouldnt start,hooked


You may have damaged the starter when the engine kicked back.

The ignition module may have been defective.....but change the crank pickup too.........more likely it is the cause of the problems.

Change the crank pickup at every tune up..........it has a high failure rate.

If your engine has 250km or 150K miles you may need a chain soon.

My 1993 want start or turn over buick park ave.


Check the battery connections and the battery itself the battery must be charged and tested, clean the battery terminals charge the battery and try to start, if no luck take the battery to an auto parts store to have it tested for free replace battery if neccessary, always wear safety glasses when working near a battery. If the battery is good and connections are good replace the starter, but you may want to check the connections at the starter first before purchasing a starter there may be corrosion on the connections.

I would try and find one from a junkyard (auto recycler). Most of the time it is difficult to make sure the fit is right.
