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

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.


Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.

89 Buick Park Ave with no power going to the fuel pump and no spark at the spark plugs.


Check your ignition switch - not the cylinder but the switch located under the dash on the steering column. You should hear an eletric click when you turn the key.

1991 buick park ave wont start


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

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

91 Buick Park Ave won't start


i just came across this problem myself the other day. i have a 91 buick park avenue that sometimes won't start. i checked several things out like cable connections and coil pack etc. etc. come to find out it was the wiring that came off the coil pack and connects to the crank sensor. the wiring that ran over top of the water pump had finally heated up so bad the coating on the wires had melted and when the engine got hot enough the wires would come in contact and send false signals to the computer not letting it start. after the car cools down and the wires contract it would start. so check the wires from the coil pack to the crank sensor to make sure the wires are not melted together.
