Question about 1995 Buick Riviera

1 Answer

A couple of months ago my CD player broke (no display or sound, a month later, my entire climate control center went dead. Then, a couple of weeks later, i got stuck on I95 and had to be towed to my house. The car cranks but will not turn over. There is spark. There is no fuel coming out of the fuel lines under the hood when i crank the motor. I did some research and tried a different key. No luck I pulled the fuses and found that i got no reading when i went across the terminals on some of them. More research I read that it could be the ignition switch A new one is over $100.00 and i am unemployed Also, i read that you can cut white wires under steering colomn and install resisters that equal the resistance of the key chip. I need a way to be sure of what is wrong because i dont have the money to try different things

I think you mean the car engine turns over but will not start. If there was a problem with the anti theft key cylinder it would not turn the engine over at all. You probaably need to get the fuel pump replaced along with the radio and ac control head.

I looked your security system, it said starter motor disable. It will probably also disable your fuel injectors. If security system has a problem, you may need a scanner that can communicate with your security system. Also, sometimes when battery voltage is lost, some modules may need to be reprogrammed. Are there any applicable trouble codes?
You can check the basics, spark at the plugs, proper fuel pressure, compression.

You should check your fuses inside and also the fuses under the hood if that's not it then its a wiring problem in the dash somewhere.

Lack of power, hesitation, climate control blowing hot air

Always check body grounds. You may have good power to the engine with a good ground still, but your body grounds control power to all else.

I bought a new hyundai accent back in 2006, after 2 years the dealer replaced a faulty starter motor, that is now ok,about 18 months ago one of the coils broke down, that was replaced,about 6 months later...

Hyundia are the best car in the world. Sorry, but they are getting better. I haven't heard of a harness issue. anyway the coils have the ground in common, but the hot wires are separate. probably got there coil packs from china( junk). And I have seen coil packs break down one after the other on different models. Hopefully the dealer is using a better grade of coils. You might even ask them to go ahead and replace the rest of them, seeing there is an issue there. You just never know.

Intermittent dead ignition to dead ignition

This problem is usually caused by a failing neutral safety switch. Try moving the shifter when it is dead. Will it start in neutral? Move the shifter while trying to start (foot on brake!)

Climate control system went dead

Could be the ground connection broke loose. Not sure where it is. You would have to remove the control panel and trace the ground wire to where it bolts to the chassis. See diagrams at link below.
