Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre

1992 Buick Lesabre dies in the middle of driving

Interior lights stay on and go off when the door is opened. A/C condenser runs continually. Radio stopped working. Heater blows cold. Battery is good; radiator is good; now the mechanic wants to replace the ignition switch. Do you suspect any other possibilities?

Besides the ignition, the only other thing I can think of, is that a ground wire from the battery to the body, engine block to battery, or the dash harness ground came loose or undone. That's all I can come up with from your descriptions. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you. I really hope that you get out with a cheap repair. Best wishes.

Why is the interior lights on a 05 Buick LeSabre staying on


You clicked the always on switch or there is an earthing fault on one of the door switches. They normally just pull out. You should have no continuity when the switch is pressed and an open circuit when released. They are very simple switches.

check the operation of the little door switches. Push switch that cuts off when the door is closed. Check that some one has not put the interior light switch in the off position.

Security light stays on and occasionly something runs down battery overnight .since i lost my keys with remote opener these problems have come up. this car is a 1994 buick park ave ultra.


One of the door pin switches is faulty, Interior light must be staying on and draining the battery. If you don't see the dome light staying on possibly the trunk switch is bad.

1997 park ave battery dies over night


I just posted my experience in another place on this site but on my 1992 PA the accessories relay stuck closed. This relay is the one that allows you to listen to the radio etc and keep things on until you open the door then all shuts off. When it is stuck closed accessories keep running until your battery drains dead. The relay was replaced and all worked great.

92 buick lesabre, all interior lights, radio, seet belt tone im guessing


First of all, you had a short in the electric system that included your cigarette lighter. When you saw the spark, you saw the result of a short. What you are experiencing now is a bad ground in the system.

This is what we refer to as stray voltage, which is why your lights are staying on. This is not aa fuse problem. If you haven't unplugged your cigarette lighter, do so. You are going to need the services of an automotive electrian to solve this problem. The reason your cigarette lighter may have been unplugged is that someone else knew of the existing problem.
