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

SOURCE: 1997 buick le sabre

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

SOURCE: 1997 Buick Le Sabre will not start somtimes

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.

SOURCE: Need procedure to replace starter

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.

SOURCE: trunk release button won't work, remote will

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.

It appears to be right above crankshaft pulley. Your lower radiator hose should go to the pump.

My 2000 Buick Lesabre will not start when i turn the key it does nothing.


I have to ask - since you didn't include any other info - do any lights work? If not - you may have a dead battery. You can attempt to jump the car or put a charger on the battery. Once started, you should drive the car w/ minimal accessories on (if jumped to start) to allow the battery to charge. You should have the batter checked for possible replacement or service very soon.

97 le sabre is surging and stalling at low speeds of about 5 mph, like when pulling into a parking lot. Usually will start right back up but last night had to have jumped


If "VOLT" or battery symbol is lit when engine is running, the alternator is not charging the battery. Replace alternator.

The starter on a 1990 buick le sabre clicks once when trying to start but won"t start


if the starter justs clicks once and all the lights stay bright i would say the starter is going bad. sometimes as a test ,you can tap the starter and if it works, it points to a bad starter

When I try to start my 91 Buick Le Sabre all I get is a click sound. The batt is fine all lights work. I replaced the starter and still the same problem.


please check whether 1 cell of the battery isnt dead .all the lights will still work without 1 cell but the battery wont take the load of the starter.the click sound is the starter relay energising . REPLACE THE BATTERY .
