Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
Check the solenoid and see if it is clicking... could be an issue with the ignition switch.... switch sends power to the solenoid which sends power to the starter when the key is rolled forward....

You have perhaps corrosion or loose connections at the battery. if you see corrosion brush it away or pour a soda solution on the corrosion. coca cola or any carbonated soft drink has enough soda to burn off corrosion

its the electrical connection at he fuel pump,if this is ok ask if they replaced the strainer on your fuel pump,your fuel pump is inside your gas tank ,you have to drop the tank to service,most fuel pumps are not warrantied if you dont change the strainer,when your car shuts off the sediment on the strainer falls back into the tank,but when you run your car and it sucks up the gas thru the strainer to the pump it clogs the strainer and the fuel pump cant pump,you shoiuld find out if they changed this because your forcing your fuel pump to work harder,was it a new fuel tank or used one that they put in

My wife has a 96 we had a similar problem. I believe that the connectors on the chip that is in the ignition key are worn out. The manual said that it is a safety feature on the car if someone tries to use a different key in the ignition or tries to punch it, it disables the car for like 3 minutes. We had a spare ignition key and switched to that and haven't had the problem since. Hope that solves your problem.

there is two bolts on the starter you will have to remove them but before doing anything disconnect battery so you don't short anything out. there is a red wire on starter that will have to come off to. when you take the two bolts out the starter should pull right out if not use a screw drive to help it. It is really easy I hope this helps.

not entirely sure about your buick, but I have a 2000 pontiac that has a switch just inside the glovebox that deactivates the trunk switch. that, together with locking the glovebox would prevent someone with jsut the valet key from gaining access to the trunk area.

Access via trunk, remove carpet and find inspection cover, remove to access fuel level sending unit which is attached to the fuel pump.
