QUESTION: Without a jump, does the motor crank when you turn the key to "START"?


If you can jump start it, then you know you have spark, fuel and compression; you know your starter and ignition are fine.

My guess is a loose/missing connection at the positive battery terminal for your starter.

SOURCE: Buick park avenue 1994 heater not working temp.display blinking

off the top of my head you probably have digital controls
the jump probably gave the heater relay a jolt of elec. which made it freeze open or shut
try disconnecting battery for 5 minutes and reconnect it this should reset relay
also heres something to look at even though it gets cold a hose could have split and slow leak on passenger side check floor for wetness if so take to nearest auto shop this needs fixed right away

i had a car that the relays froze shut so i had to manual start it under neith the car with a long screw driver cause key wouldnt start it

temp guage only shows temp not low coolant you gotta pop the hood and check manually the coolant tank for low fluid
even with low fluid the car would have heated up quicker so the idea of low fluid is a gasp heater would have heated quicker too
check condensor in front the small radiator infront of big radiator to see if iced up a little hose water sprayed on it should loosen the ice if any try to see if theres a way in mornings to see if you have any coolant leaks
coolant leaks can break a car into parts and be costly

SOURCE: 1994 buick park avenue, idling up and will not idle down

If it's not sticking throttle linkage, and i assume it isn't because you have an engine light on, it's probably a faulty idle control sensor. You can get one at any parts store, and they aren't hard to remove and replace. The parts guy can show you exactly where it is on his screen.

Car will not turn over lights come on battery seems fine

lights will work even on a bad battery its the amps in the battery that need to be good for a starter motor to work. if it starts on a jump start then would check the battery fully. also the alternator just in case its not charging the battery properly .

Cars battery was dead after jump starting the car

The cold air is not related to the battery trouble.

I order for your car to MAKE electricity, there must be some power in the battery. If your battery is dead, when you jump it, you can run the starter motor but if you dont put electricity back into the battery, the alternator will not make power. And ... you have the blower on consuming any power that might be remaining in the poor battery.

You might need a new battery and you might need a new alternator in your 15 year old Park Avenue.

1994 buick park avenue . driving home and shut off

how did you jump the fuel pump relay, by bypassing the relay or by applying power to contact that closes the relay? If you bypassed the relay completely you need to b ench test the relay you can do this easily by using any 12v dc power source. If you tested the fuel pump relay by applying power to the relay and the pump run and developed pressure. I suspect a wiring or ground issue. Good luck

No air conditioning, flashing climate light

You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.
