Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Installed new steering column, computer reprogram.

I installed a new steering column in my 94 buick lesabre. Somebody has told me that I need to reprogram the car, and I have read by disconnecting the battery for a few that it will re-learn after i connect it back up. I only think this will work because I am not planning on modifying my computer, just a simple reprogram. Is this true? thanks

1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.

Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

1992 Buick LeSabre won't start when key is turned on-lights on dash light up, horn & lights work. Can cross starter and get it to start, then it dies right away. Were told it might be a bad key or bad...

It is not the key or lock cylinder - they do not affect the runability issues you are having. I suspect your mechanical ignition switch is bad and needs replacement. It is located on top of the steering column by your feet and you'll need to lower the steering column to get to it. Before replacing it check the wire harness for corrosion or dirt, clean all contacts, grease with dielectric grease and try again. If it still won't start then replace that switch, making sure you mark the exact location of the old switch before removing and the installing the new switch in the same location. It is also critical you have the metal rod in the correct place and that it moves freely.

Turn signal flashers will come on but won't blink

For 1994 Buick Lesabre 3.8L SFI OHV 6cyl the turn signal flasher is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column brace. On the Bonneville, it may be on the left side on the shroud. The hazard flasher is under the instrument panel to the right of the steering column.

The turn signal flasher is installed in a clamp attached to the base of the steering column support inside the car. In all cases, replacement is made by unplugging the old unit and plugging in a new one.

Hope helped (remember rated and comment this).

Can't find flasher on 1990 buick lesabre

A friend of mine restores cars and he said:

There are two different flashers.
1. The hazard lights should be found on the steering column.
2. The turn signal flashers should be found under the steering column to the left.

Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre.

i dont think their is an adjustment under the sterring wheel. ive had mine apart to do a clockspring. the only nut under the air bag is to hold the steering wheel itself on the column, not to tighten the column itself. try looking under the dash for some studs and nuts holding the whole column itself. that should fix your problem. i dont recommend pulling the airbag and steering wheel for any reason. its very comlpicated under their and all the parts are expensive!

Steering column is becoming loose on 1988 Buick Lesabre

There are 3 bolts inside that have backed out, this is a tough job. You have to have special tools to complete this job. You have to pull the pins on the side after disassembling to access the bolts.

Key Ignition lock and car want stay running

You were told almost right. Sounds as though you will need another steering column and a new key to use. The reason why your car will not stay running is because of the chip. Most likely your car has a vehicle anti-theft device installed from the factory. (VAT) Module. Or if it starts with a screwdriver if wouldn't have that. Check with a dealer or mechanic that you can trust to find out more. Being that the car is 11 years old, a dealer may not be the best solution and best by a mechanic to get one from a salvage yard. You can have a mechanic check your VIN # or look in your owner's manual to see if a anti-theft device is on your car first.
