Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre

1992 Buick LeSabre

I was on my home from work sitting at a red light, the light changed and i realized my car was off. i placed it in park and tried to start it but it would not turn over. i was trying and but it would just not start. the more i tried to start it the weaker it got till finally all i could get is a clicking noise from the engine. i waited till the next day and tried to start it again and again got the clicking and some minor smoke and a burning smell. now all i get is a clicking noise when i try to start it. it not the battery because i replaced it with a fully charged one and i got the same thing. What would make the car just die out in traffic and not turn over again. It almost seems as if there are a couple problems that happened. If anyone has any suggestions it would be helpful.

It sounds like a battery cable is bad. It could be corroded or have a bad connection. Both cables,(positive or negative) could cause this.

The LeSabre had the same body style up until 1999 in the rounded style. So it should fit just fine.

The LeSabre's starters are known for going bad. I would replace the starter and I am sure that will fix your problem. Hope that helps!

Parking brake stuck on a 1990 Buick LeSabre

I live in snow country and have had the same thing happen. In my case it was the cable that hug up. It got corroded with road salt and water and when applied froze in that position. Also a frayed cable will hang up in the sheathing. I don't think the spring is bad as the peddle did come back. Good luck.
