I guess its an automatic? If so, the starter has a switch which will not allow the car to be started in gear. The switch or wiring may have moved or disconnected.

SOURCE: brake indicator warning light for a 1993 buick century

Check to see that the emergency brake isn't engaged. This happened to me a couple weeks ago after I did some work on the dash and had to barely depress the pedal. Also verify your brake fluid is ok.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?

the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  6. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.

1995 Buick road master I put a flywheel in now it's cutting my started keep putting new starters in is engine my no good


You keep replacing the starter motors?
The starter motor may be fitted incorrectly and isn't meshing with the ring gear properly.

It may be that ring gear - the teeth - on the flywheel are worn/damaged or even the wrong fit for the starter motor.

Another alternative is that the flywheel isn't torqued up correctly and consequently it - and the ring gear teeth - are out of line. However, I would have thought that an out of balance flywheel would also cause vibration problems. Your car runs okay?

My 1993 buick century will run great, I even put a new battery and high output alternator in, but my car lights still dim and the other day it just turned off and I turned it back on but when I put it in...


You could be sitting on a hot seat - literally. There is probably a wire shorting out under your seat and it has a control wire for the seat adjustment motors. Adjust your seat and go to the fuse box and read the labels. Pull out the fuse from the slot that contains the seat power supply.

Changed the heater core on a 1993 buick century and now it wont start


I need Moe info. Does it turn over? Does it try to start,but just not for? The core is in close proximity to some wiring that is essential to the start sequence and if cut or otherwise disconnected would allow the engine to turn over but not fire.
