Not sure if I am following your question.
Is the battery charged up when you first start the engine ?
Does the engine crank but not start the second time, or not crank ?
What happens if you let it sit for an hour ?

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.

My starter has for shims on it an it started good for a day now starter just spin when i turn the key on a 1983 buick regal


If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just got a new battery for my 1983 buick regal with 350 motor an it will start good once then wont start again for about an hour or two


You may have bad teeth on your starter or the solenoid may just be going bad. It is also possible you bought a defective battery,may have bad cells.

Starter problem. Make sure your connections to the starter are tight, both the battery cable and the starter solenoid wire. Will probably have to take starter off and have it tested.

1993 buick regeal wont start new battery still


make sure the cable ends attached to the side terminals of the battery are immaculately cleaned by a wire brush and baking soda and water.

If it still won't start with a new battery, it's likely the starter is bad.

However, you might want to check to see the amperage draw when trying to turn it over with an amp meter (inductive type).

If it draws 75 A or above and doesn't turn over, the starter is bad.
If it draws 0 A and doesn't turn over the starter's solenoid may be
not functioning.

May want to take it to Sears or Walmart to have th starting and charging system checked out.

Good luck.
