Sounds like a bad connection! are your battery terminals tight? you should check your engine ground wire, and then check your connection to your starter.

1990 Buick Century Limited 6cly wont start turn over or crank


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.

You have a flat battery and needs charging.
If the battery is 3 -4 years old then it could be worn out and needs replacing.

Take a close look at alternator as well. Low /dim headlights may be a sign of battery not receiving a charge from alternator. If bearings are gone in alternator, it will get noisy as well.

1999 Buck Regal Stalls While Driving


Possible solution to stalling '99 Buick. My '99 Buick Century would die for no apparant reason with no error codes. After 4 days at a Buick dealership and many frustrated mechanics, the problem was corrosion from under the battery location. The wiring harness had small amounts of corrosion internally. Check the wiring under the battery for any corrosion. This has been the problem on more than 1 vehicle that we are aware of. No service bulletin has been issued by Buick.
