Question about 1996 Buick LeSabre
I have a 1996 buick LeSabre with about 107,000 miles on it. In February a car hit mine on the passenger side with the main impact being in the headlight area. The damage was very extensive and called for a new battery being installed. Since that time the car will not start after resting for 5 or more hours. I have taken it to a mechanic that is talented and trustworthy. I left it overnight and he got the problem to present itself again. He checked the fuel pressure and it was excellent. We tested the battery, starter and alternater and all was 100%. Here's the thing. If it doesn't start, I can turn the igntion five times (not to start the car but enough to turn radio on). I do this five times and the car will start almost every time. A co-worker suggested that something might be staying on after the car is turned off causing a slow draw from the battery, like an automatic starter. any ideas?
Well first when you attempt to start it does it turn over slow or like normal.. if normal then i would persue the security system... the chip in the key... does the security light stay on steady or flash... also when car does not start does the check engine light come on with the key in the run position.. let me know
