    load test your alternator asap.

    the new battery is still good, but not if you keep draining it.

The Buick Park Ave is the ULTIMATE bells and whistles vehicle. I know, I helped buy one for a friend. Used as it was, it had things that needed tweaked, at home and in the shop. The condition you asked was one of them we couldn't fix at home, but you might. Seems her vehicles antenna retracted as soon as it was shut off, and so they should. This one would keep on going even after the key was removed. The "End of Stroke" switch was broken - The antenna would pull down and when it reached the limit, you couldn't hear anything, but the antenna motor was still running until the motors thermal cut out kicks in thus saving the motor. That is good - and bad. It would cool down, and try again. Seems silly but she had the electrical system checked twice before the dealer caught it. The dealer also mentioned about 5 other devices that are "on" when the car is "off". I only have time to mention one. Hope this helps. If not, keep watching for answers.
Thanks

Check your alternator to see if is charging propperly.. There is also a fuse in the car to control the alternator charging as well. you should look at this.

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

I can not find the neutral safety switch on a 2000 buick park ave


Any chance your vehicles have a security/alarm system. Disconnecting battery on some, will arm it sometimes & not allow it to run. Using key to unlock door, on driver & passenger side have been known to work on some vehicles, but if not, a call to dealer should help.

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.
