    look under the dash by the steering column for the white plug there's like 6-8 wire's in it unplug it and plug it back in sometimes it loses connection, my friend has the same problem with his, get a can of dielectric spray and spray the connections when you have them unplugged, you can try cleaning the battery connections they also get corroded

    I looked under dash by steering column could not see or find white plug or any plug. The only white plug I saw was on left side behind ebrake pedal and it was plugged in a box along with several other plugs.

SOURCE: 1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.

You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.

SOURCE: 99 buick regal won't start

Hello, the Regal seems to have that problem. Insert your key in the ignition and turn it but do not turn the car on, make sure you here the fuel pump kick in, then at the end of you r fuel rail there should be a cap, remove it, use a very thin screw driver and push that part in, Be careful it's going to squirt gas, that's a good sign. If it does not, check your fuel filter. And last, if nothing above described works first check your negative wire on your fuel pump, second your injectors, they might be clogged.
Best of luck, God Bless.

2002 Buick Century won't start for ten minutes?


It's the "someone is trying to steal me" sensor that plagues us all with GM cars during that time frame. They can program the computer to ignore it, but they charge about $200 for it. It actually occurs as the ignition gets worn, and starts to feel the key a little less, and thinks that someone it trying to pick it.

THERE IS A CHIP IN THE KEY I BELIEVE. THERE IS A RELEARN PROCEDURE YOU CAN TRY IF WHEN YOU TRY AND START IT THE SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES. HOOK UP A BATTERY CHARGER. TURN THE KEY ON AND TRY AND START THE CAR AND RELEASE . DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POSITION. AFTER 10 MINS THE LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING. TURN KEY OFF. TRY AND RESTART CAR AND AGAIN DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IN THE RUN POSITION. LET SET 10 MINS AGAIN. LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING AFTER THAT 10 MINS. DO IT AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME. SHUT KEY OFF LET SET 5 SECONDS AND START THE VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS

Firstly it is advisable to energise the starter solenoid manually. If the engine cranks the fault is - immobiliser, ignition switch, relay, supply, wiring or connections.

If the engine doesn't crank the fault is likely the starter motor or solenoid.

If you get power to the small wire on the solenoid, when you turn the key to the starting position, the ignition switch is ok and you may have a bad solenoid and/or starter. Most parts stores can test your starter. Also check the "crank" fuse and ignition fuses.

Key won't turn off in 1989 buick century


You may have a problem with the lock cylinder istelf, they have a tendancy to become "unstaked" which causes them to jam-- sometimes they won't turn off, others won't turn enough to start.

The other problem may be the ignition switch, which is located down the steering column, under dash. The switch is governed by the rotation of the lock cylinder (key) moving a rod by way of a pinion and rack.

The switch my be adjusted or replaced without removal of the seering wheel or lock assembly.

Expect to pay $250 to $400 depending on the actual failure.
