Question about Buick Century
New battery then it was trying to crank but not starting or turning over. found out the fuel pump was bad so replaced fuel pump and now nothing no dash lights come on car wont crank nor try to start/turn over. would it be that putting new battery in be4 fuel pump was replaced then replacing the fuel pump and now nothing is working could it be that the battery is now to low and not got enough voltage to work?
Usually if the battery is dead, you will hear clicking. If the battery is good then I would check any Starter fuses/relays. If they are good then I would check for power to the starter solenoid. You can find many youtube videos on how to check this.

SOURCE: car wont start
I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.
You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.

hello,good day,first we are in fuel side,better to install a fuel gauge,to determine the right pressure, is not mention your fuel pump relay,this should also check,some occasion the power supply is missing,now if all is in order (fuel side) then your switching unit(transistor box) need tobe check,assuming your engine is 103 engine,ty

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

start by getting the car to run...If you played with the fuses and battery, this is where to start. Clean the battery terminals and tighten them after cleaning...test the fuses-the tester is about ten bucks at most autoparts stores...If after that no start, then you will need to break out a multimeter and find the short circuit.
