Try this. Open the air intake hose. thats the 4 inch thick hose on the top to your motor going from the air filter box. shoot starting fluid into it while someone cranks it. if it starts look at the fuses but most likely be clogged fuel filter, clogged air filter, bad fuel pump. these are the most common issues when it trys to start but won`t.

SOURCE: when my buick century 1995 is cold it will start but won't rev up. once it is hot it runs okay

Number of possibilities. See if you have any diagnostic codes stored. Could be throttle position sensor, coolant temp. sensor, hard to say. I would start with the codes. Does it start easy when warmed up, and run good? Boy, I just don't know.

SOURCE: 1996 buick century door locks won't work and radio goes to am station when you turn off the car

This same thing happened to me in my 1996 buick century just a few days ago. I have the same problem with the door locks and the radio resetting to AM too. I also have the problem of the seats not moving. I think it might be the curcuit breaker or a fusible link. I am not a mechanic, but I do have the repair manual and the mechanics book with the wiring diagrams. If you want me to send the wiring diagram I could do that. I hope that helps. Let me know what you find cause I got the same problem.

SOURCE: 2003 buick century won't start -replaced battery, no clicking noise

Check for power on the large wire at the starter. There should be power all the time. Check for power on the small wi at the starter. There should be power with the key in the crank position. If both of the above are true than the starter is likely bad.

check whether your vehicle is equipped with any immobilizer -anti theft system- as these systems are the one which could cause these unexpected situations.
