Question about 1989 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

My 1987 Buick Park Avenue alarm goes off for no apparent reason. Up until last night the security alarm was okay. It went off while we were away from home (we found out later). We had just got back home when it went off. I did the driver side door key thing and it turned off. I locked the car. An hour later it did the same thing. I left car unlocked and it was okay from there on. How can I disable this thing?

Same here. What I do is lock all doors using the button on the driver's door before opening the door, then open the driver's door and lock it manually. That seems to keep it disarmed. I believe it has to be the driver's door for this to work, but I don't know for sure.

My 1993 buick park avenue will not start but i have power. and it has the factory security system. it has and new starter and alternator... so just wondering what this could be


I would definately think its the security. Look for a light somewhere near the dash that says SECURITY. Thats a dead give away. I think on the park avenue its in the middle of the dash above the radio. Check out this site, it explains the whole SECURITY thing, why your car isnt starting, and solutions to fix it yourself for cheap.

My security system coms on for no apparent reason


The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it gets worse till the car won't start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue with the same system.

Car alarm goes off for no reason


There is probably a reason...I would look for bad grounds. A good place to look is at the battery terminal. Clean them and if the problem still exist, I would have an experienced tech look at the unit itself.

Believe my car dies because of security issues.............


if it dies while running it is NOT security. This is 100% sure. I had this same problem though and solved it on my 94 Park Ave by changing the Crankshaft sensor and the Camshaft sensor. Have those checked by your mechanic. It's a very typical problem in those cars.

Engine shakes when accelerates, lost power, Buick Park Avenue


Look for a bad coil pack. If you have the bank of three coils on the front passenger side of the motor, it is possible that one of them is going bad. This can be an intermittent problem since it failure is frequently heat related, and may not show up until the car is all heated up. It is simple enough to change one of these if you can figure out which one it is. There is a little device ( Spark detector) that can sense the sparks inside the wires. Get one and hold it close to each wire... away from the coils. The wire, that does not make the spark detector light up...is coming from the bad coil. (It is also possible that a spark plug wire is bad instead.) Good luck. Chip
