You may have a problem with the lock cylinder istelf, they have a tendancy to become "unstaked" which causes them to jam-- sometimes they won't turn off, others won't turn enough to start.

The other problem may be the ignition switch, which is located down the steering column, under dash. The switch is governed by the rotation of the lock cylinder (key) moving a rod by way of a pinion and rack.

The switch my be adjusted or replaced without removal of the seering wheel or lock assembly.

Expect to pay $250 to $400 depending on the actual failure.

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.

1st check your battery cables to make sure that they are not corroded with acid, if they are , then clean them with a solution of baking soda and water, take a brush and scrub them, then rinse them of, and make sure they are tight, if it still doesn't start, then have someone check your battery out to see if it has a dead cell in it, if the battery checks out ok, then i would suspect the starter.

If you get power to the small wire on the solenoid, when you turn the key to the starting position, the ignition switch is ok and you may have a bad solenoid and/or starter. Most parts stores can test your starter. Also check the "crank" fuse and ignition fuses.
