Question about 1994 Buick Park Avenue
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.

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

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.
