Inside the dash behind the information display ( speed, gas, etc ) you will find wires that are will have to replace them. i have a 1983 Olds Regency 98 that had the same problem.

I have a 1997 buick skylark custom problems

I too have a 97 buick skylark custom, that hasn't been cranking. Heres what I have figured out so far, so you may have the same problem. Heres the first question - Is the theft system light flashing when you try to crank the car? Cause if it is, it means the car isn't wanting to recognize your key as the correct key which is causing the car to go into tamper mode which disables fuel to the engine, in which case you have to turn the key back to the start position and wait for the light to stop flashing then try to crank it again.

P.S. i'm not sure why this other thing would be a problem but i lost my gas cap right before this started happening and someone told my that might trigger the sensor, do you have yours?

My 89 Buick Skylark speedometer reads 10 mph fast.

there is no censor for speed on a buick skylark.
i have an 88 same motor and everything
u jumped a tooth on the gear that drives the needle.
u have to pop the dash off and get to the problem behind the main gauge and the needle assembley should come right out. either that or you stripped the gear and its just going wherever it pleases.
