A number of items could cause this.

1 Worn shift linkage causing the neutral safety switch to not go into PARK or NEUTRAL.

2 Defective neutral safety switch

3 Cracked wire in the ignition switch, causing the anti theft system to prevent engine from starting

4 One or two bad commutator plates on the starter armature. If the starter stops so that the brushes land on the defective plate, the starter won't work. When it lands on a good one, it will. This requires replacement of the starter.

Long story short, you need a skilled mechanic to diagnosis this.

Check your fuel pressure. When you turn the key to the accessorie point you should hear the fuel pump pressurize the system. If you can't hear it that could be your problem. If you can hear it I would then check the fuel relay..usually not far from the gas tank.

First you need to trace the entire ignition wiring. from the battery to the starter. Remember if you can jump the starter then its in the wiring before the starter. check your sylinoid, check the ground connection to the block, make sure to remove the ground for the block clean all surfaces with wire brush and sand paper. Don't forget it could still be in the stearing column. check all your connections and 2ndary connections. get your multimeter out and start checking anything.

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
