Question about 1995 Buick Regal

1 Answer

95 Buick Lesabre seems dead, but was just fixed!

My 95 Lesabre was just at the mechanic last week to get a new brake line. When I picked it up it would not start the first time I put it in the ignition. I tried again a few seconds later and it was fine. I drove it to my driveway and now when I try to start it, it's dead. My mechanic is very reliable and trustworthy, so I have no idea what's going on. Not even my lights will turn on and my electric locks don't work either. My battery was replaced last August. Is this an ignition switch problem? How much will it cost to fix?

The locks don't go thru the ignition switch. Check the battery connections for corrosion or looseness.

SOURCE: Won't start, no lights, nothing.

If you need to do some testing yourself, first clean both battery terminals where they contact the battery post, Use a volt meter to check battery voltage (should have 12v or better) Terminals may just be dirty and I don't know anyone that removes a battery cable to change a brake line. Therefore the shop likely is coming with the attitude of the typical customer complaint that "you just fixed my tire and now the radio dosen't work" A good shop corrects the problem and lives with it as long as it's not something big. Others use this as a starting point for an argument (those guys usually don't last long).
Chances are its what I said in which case just roll with's no ones fault.

2001 buick lesabre would not start, mechanic said bad MAP sensor and water in fuel drained and replaced fuel, and new MAP installed. Car died again on way home from garage. Mechanic said bad Fuel Filter...

This is the piecemeal approach to automotive maintenance. Take your Buick to a competent mechanic to have stored codes retrieved which will identify probable causes for the problems you are experiencing.

95 Buick LeSabre, brakes will only hold for a week then have to re bleed the system.has new master cylinder,Any ideas

Check all your brake lines especially those going to the bleeder valve where you find the most air when bleeding. Also check for leaks at the rear of the master cylinder and at the calipers and wheel cylinders. If either half of the master cylinder is going low, that shows you there is a leak somewhere. If it's staying full, I'd suspect the master as having an internal bypassing problem.

Won't start, no lights, nothing.

May I make a suggestion that this reliable and trustworthy mechanic, check out this fault? I'm not doubting the mechanics ability in any way, (Especially not after the high praise you gave!), but
perhaps an error was made in installation.

If not, perhaps this is the person to check out this fault.
