Tell the technician to sell his tools and but a frankfurter cart!! A real tech does not changed anything unless he is absolutely sure it is the problem.

There are many reasons a vehicle will not start. Too many to list but having parts changed until the vehicle is repaired is not the way to do it.

You vehicle probably has a 3.8L engine. These engine were known for CPS (crankshaft position sensor) problems. Tell your 'tech' to check for spark, injector pulse and fuel pressure and DON'T PAY HIM FOR THE MODULE. Insist he re-installs the old one to do the diagnosis.

How do I replace the ignition (keys's lost) in the steering?

did u get a key that was the proper code? these keys have a little piece of resistive wire embedded in the key, does the key u had made have that? if not it will not work, u can't just get a key cut, they have numbers to select the proper resistance value for the key to work with your security system.

Car will not start

it sounds like your ignition control module.the location would depend on the engine in your car.with a v6 they are usually located under the coils on top of the motor.with a 4cyl. it is usually on the back side of the motor,it is also mounted under the ignition coils.

1993 buick regal start and stall

The average life of a battery is 3 good years, regardless how BIG, or how it cost. Anything after that is a blessing. Personally, I would replace the battery ASAP, and then with a FULLY CHARGED battery. Then drive, and see if the problem still remains. Hope this helps

2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start

The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.
