My 1993 Buick Park Avenue just Clicks once when you turn the key on starter won't engage the battery is fine


Sounds like a bad starter or a bad battery cable connection to me. If you are certain that tyour battery is in good condition and fully charged, your battery cables are clean and tight and are making good connection on BOTH ends, replace the starter.

Oil change tech says my idle relearn needs fixing on my 2001 Yukon XL...can my husband do this?


{: ) Anytime the powertrain control module (PCM) or the battery is disconnected, the PCM loses power, or the PCM is reprogrammed, the PCMs learned idle position is lost. The engine idle is unstable when the learned idle position is lost. For a 2001 Yukon XL, you can try these steps: Automatic Transmission
  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Restore the PCM battery feed. ( IF it was disconnected)
  3. Turn OFF the A/C controls.
  4. Set the parking brake and block the drive wheels.
  5. Start the engine.
  6. Ensure that the engine coolant temperature is more than 80°C (176°F).
  7. Shift the transmission into Drive.
  8. Allow the engine to idle for 5 minutes.
  9. Shift the transmission into Park.
  10. Allow the engine to idle for 5 minutes.
  11. Turn OFF the engine for 30 seconds.
Manual Transmission
  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Restore the PCM battery feed. (IF it was disconnected)
  3. Turn OFF the A/C controls.
  4. Set the parking brake and block the drive wheels.
  5. Place the transmission in Neutral.
  6. Start the engine.
  7. Ensure that the engine coolant temperature is more than 80°C (176°F).
  8. Allow the engine to idle for 5 minutes.
  9. Turn OFF the engine for 30 seconds.
After the procedure, you can do testing and observations. If unsuccessful, you may repeat the steps.
Also, the best time to relearn idle is after a throttle body clean (from carbon deposits)

Car was working fine i parked outside my house then retired for the night i came out the next afternoon and it will not start


Hi

Sometimes the car won’t start because the wheel is turned the wrong way. Try turning the wheel and then trying it again. Check that the car is in park. If it was shut off in gear, it won’t start. Next, make sure the car isn’t out of gas.
Check whether the tires are stuck up against a curb or something. If so, turn the steering wheel firmly to the right or try to get out and physically move the car a bit and it should start. Do you have the clutch pedal down if it’s a standard? Or, if you have an antitheft device, check to see if that’s allright. Check your distributor cap for moisture. If you recently ran through a deep puddle, a damp or wet distributor cap will keep the car from starting. If there are cracks in it, replace it.
If you cant turn the car key then this is probably due to an antitheft gizmo that turns on when you shut off the car. Just wiggle the steering wheel a little and then try. If that doesn’t do it, turn the wheel as far to one side as you can and try again. This should get it going.
However if the battery’s good but the car still won’t turn over you may have a bad ignition switch. Try this test. Turn the key to ON (not start) and see in the warning lights are working. If they don’t and the battery connections are clean you have a bad ignition switch. If it's the ignition switch you probably will have to take it in to the garage.
Call for service if you’ve checked out all of the above things because the other possibilities will require a little more technical skill to discover.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.
