Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue

Car won't start after changing battery

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.

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.

My 1995 Pristine fully loaded BMW 525i has a battery issue. It sat for a while and I put a charger on it trickle and the car started fine. The battery slowly died, won't take a charge at all now.


Hi,the battery on most of these cars is in the boot behind the cover on the right hand side as you look in the boot,I hope this is correct,all the best,sorry it sounds to me like you are right about changing the battery.

Truck shuts off while in park idling.


Your car is 18 years old. It's likely history. Sell it as is for what you can get.

I just buought a 98 Volvo S70 T5, the car sat for abit, to the point were It had to jump it. to start. ran great for the next 2 hours off and on mybe 7 diffrent starts but it never running for more then...


It could be a number of things:
  • Bad connection or corrosion on battery cables
  • Dead cell in the battery would prevent it from charging fully
  • Bad or worn drive belt would slip, preventing the alternator from fully charging the battery
  • Bad alternator
If the car will run at idle with all accessories turned on, the alternator is good and you should concentrate on the battery and battery cables. If the car won't idle, then the drive belt and/or alternator could be the issue. If the car starts everytime when it's cold and only gives you a problem starting when the engine is hot, the starter could be the issue. A bad starter will often work when it's cold (after sitting a few hours or overnight). When a bad starter gets hot, it takes more and more power to get it to turn over.
Overall, I'd have the electrical system checked out. Most chain auto parts stores (Autozone, Advance Auto) will do a complimentary electrical test for you.

2001 Ford Windstar Battery light came on when driving by the time we got home all of the dash board lights were on. Turned engine off and it would not restart, sounded like dead battery when tried...


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!

My car randomly wont start. I put a new battery. it will however startif I get a jump. my post are clean


I had a similar problem.  It was driving me crazy.  If car sat for more that 3-4 hours I would have a dead battery.  It turns out that this apparently is a relatively common problem with BMWs.  What was occurring is that the blower fan for the ac/heater was randomly turning on and off while the car sat.  If the car sat for more than a couple of hours, the fan was draining the battery.  It was about a $250 fix at the shop.
