First thing to do is always check the fluid level and condition of fluid(burnt smell or brown?).
If fluid is okay, add the proper amount of SEA-FOAM TRANSMISSION Treatment. It won't take much to treat a small tranny. Follow directions on can. don-ohio (:^)

That is typically indicative of a fuel pump issue. It isn't necessarily the fuel pump itself, but the way it is positioned in the tank when low on fuel can keep it from getting fuel. If you fill the tank and find however that the problem still exists then the other cause is related to parking. Your Buick has a safety mechanism that will not allow it to be started if not fully parked, called the Brake Transmission Shift Interlock. Not only does this solenoid controlled component not allow you to shift out of park without applying the brake, you also will not be able to start it if this mechanism is faulty, or something in the gear select linkage prevents the shift selector from properly engaging the parked position. When on a hill and you shift into park, the vehicle weight is rolled against a component of this system, preventing it from properly "registering" the parked gear select position. What you can do the next time you need to park on a hill is with your brake applied and the gear select in Drive, apply the emergency brake and hold it down, THEN shift into park. Then release your feet from the brakes. This should help.

TITLE: A/T Inhibitor Switch
APPLIES TO: 95-00 Sephia
SERVICE TIP: CONDITION Some 1995 thru 2000 Sephia Automatic Transmission equipped vehicles may exhibit the following inhibitor switch concerns:
The vehicle may not start intermittently in park or neutral.
The vehicle TCU may intermittently lose the gear position signal from the inhibitor switch and go into failsafe mode (third gear). If the inhibitor switch signal returns while driving, the TCU will return to normal transmission control. The vehicle will then upshift or downshift abruptly depending on vehicle speed.
The TCU will set a pending OBDII code and then after two key cycles, the MIL light will come on and the O/D light will flash.
Corrosion/dirt on the inhibitor switch connector terminals or internal contacts. CORRECTIVE ACTION Replace the inhibitor switch with P/N KFW35-21-444 and carefully adjust per procedures in the applicable service manual. Note: The 1998-2000 Sephia Service Manual has an error on page 42-104 inhibitor switch inspection/adjustment. The connector terminal chart should show terminals 5 and 7 having continuity in neutral. The correct inhibitor switch terminal locations are shown below.
