Did you check the starter solenoid, or the relay? Also there is a starter or ignition fuse that may be bad.

You need to first stop guessing and start making some reasonable tests to see if you even have any fire. Put a spark tester on your spark plugs and turn the vehicle over to see if the spark tester lights up...then if it does, spray some ether in the vehicle' air intake to throttle body, and see if it is capable of running. This is a place to start then you can give me more informaiton after these tests and they don't cost you too much to do, then we can go from there...might even be able to get you running.

I have a 1994 buick park ave ultra.sometimes it turns on sometimes it doesnt but will later on,it wont even turn over.I replaced battery,starter,spark plugs n wire,ignition module n coils,and fuel...

Replace your key or try your spare often time the security chip is worn or not working properly if that isn't itand you can get it to turn on short the starter by taking a large screwdrived(makesure the handle is insulated either plastic or rubber) and touch both terminals on the starter if it starts its the starter relay. Could also be a bad ignition cylinder or loose connection at the ignition cylinder both of which would require removing steering column cover

Hi i have a 1995 buick regal gs,when i go to start the car nothing happens,the battery is good,the starter is good,and i even changed the steering column,and it wont turn over even at all.we tried to start...

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.

Typically,fusible links protect everything but the starter. I'd check them anyway & they're down at the starter. Also,make sure the engine isn't siezed,3.8's freeze all the time. Yes,that would mean the engine is toast. Also the transmission has a clutch in it & it could be locked in the on position. You can unplug the 4 pin connector in front on the trans & see if that makes a difference. Write back if you need more help

Can my spark plugs cause my car not to start if i need to change them?

You say the car sounds like it wants to start--does the engine crank when u turn the key? If the engine cranks (engine turns over is the same thing), then it's not the starter. so, if the engine is cranking over, u must check to see if you have spark at the spark plugs. It is possible for the car not to start because of bad spark plugs. How many miles since they were changed? Pull a couple out and inspect them to see if they need to be replaced. 1st thing to do is see if u have spark at plugs, then check to see if gas is getting to the plugs.

Do the interior chimes and headlights turn on when you turn the key in the ignition???? We have a 95 Riv that gave us the same problem. Occassionally we have to put the key in the ignition, turn it on, move the steering column up and down (sometimes roughly) until the chimes etc. come on (some security thing) then the car will start.
