Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue
My car wouldn't start and I needed a new battery. The car sat for about 36 hours before I got the new battery and had it installed. Now when we try to start the car it wont start. It acts like it wants too, but wont stay running. Someone told me I need to reset the computer,but it needs to be running to do this. I remember I had a car like this before and we had to have a code to put in to reset, but dont remember how I got the code. A computer was hooked up to the car to see what the problem was, but it wouldn't read the car.
Find a programmer that can open the computer the is in the computer to see it

Sounds like your theft system. You can reset it by leaving the key in the on postion for 15-20 minutes. IF this doesn't work, you may need to visit the dealership.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you
have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty
alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will
surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be
replaced to resolve the problem.
You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery
connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This
will reset the system and can get the battery light off.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
