Question about 2000 Buick Century

1 Answer

My car started out by stalling when I put the right turn signal on but would start back up. Now it died and will not start back up has new battery. the dash lights come on but when you turn the key

Just googling the problem seems it could be the ignition but not sure. Also at one point the ABS light and check engine lights were staying on but eventually went off

Sounds like you might have wire problem.
Try turning the key to the point before ignition. This is actually a dashboard test that have all lights on the dashboard turn on. Try to see if the lights are completely bright or a bit dull in the light.

You battery might be uncharging itself, instead of charging. I have tried that. even with an only 1-2 day old battery.

Turns over then stalls


Check the mass airflow sensor. Possible dirt build up.
Check the rubber vacuum hoses for leaks.

I would say it may be the distributor, I would start there first. You may want to try a tune up first to see if it helps and I would definitely get my battery checked out since winter is approaching and it has been run down a few times. hope this helps tim

Car dies


Your 94 should be a 350 engine,is it?
That would be a timing chain,which means the distributor cap was removed to locate cylinder 1,
Your high rpm in neutral,and low rpm in gear sounds like a vacume leak,The turn signal problem I'm not sure because you didn't say if the battery is going dead or if it starts right back up.
