SOURCE: 1999 buick lesabre security light stays on car wont crank

Hello sthomasbf
This sounds like it may be a problem with the passII security sys.
First check the two fuses in the fuse block, #1A and #2E the block is
located under the left side of dash. They may be marked as vehicle anti
theft system(vats)#1A. Fuse #2E may be marked vats/air bags.If these
are good, locate the anti theft relay located above the fuse block.
There will be a yellow wire and a purple wire on each side of the relay,
you wan't to jump the yel wire(A2) to the ppl wire(C1) one of the yellow
wires will run from the relay back up the steering colum. This wire is C1
the ppl wire on the other side of the relay is A2 jump these two wires
and this will bypass the relay. If the car still won't start the problem is
most likely in the colum, either the chip in the key or the resistor in
the ign. lock. You can start the car by locating the purple wire under
the hood in the harness with the blk plastic cover, that runs accross the
firewall. In the same bundle of wires there should be a slightly thicker
red wire, with the key in the on pos. take a sharp knife and cut into
the 2 wires at the same time to make a connection. This will turn the
starter and start the car. If you need to take it to get the key and lock
checked. Hope this helps.

Why does my 1999 buick lesabre motor stop while driving but restart after a frew minutes?

it sounds like you might have a crank sensor that is going bad. When it does not start check for spark and injector pulse. If both are missing than it is very likely a bad crank sensor. If there is no spark but injector pulse than the crank sensor is working and you may have an issue with the ignition module.

Locating the knock sensor on a 1999 Buick LeSabre Custom

the knock sensors are threaded in to the block on either side of the engine. One is located near where the oil dipstick tube goes into the oil pan. The starter will need to be removed to see/replace. The other is in he same place on the opposite side of the engine.

My engine stalls?

The crank sensor is located behind the crank pulley on the 3.8 liter. The crank pulley must first be removed. A 15/16" socket, three very long 8 x 1.0 bolts (pretty sure that is the size, some large washers, and a crank pulley pulley will be required.

With the crank pulley removed mark the bracket where the old crank sensor is located so that the new sensor can be placed in exactly the same position. Failure to do this will result in the new sensor and/or the crank pulley being severely damaged.

Then it's as simple as removing the old sensors and installing the new one.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

Location of crank sensor on 1997 lesabre

The crank sensor should be on the passenger side of the engine. It probably won't be visible without first removing the power steering reservoir, and possibly other items on that side of the engine. It is located down below near the waterpump pulley.

Find crank position sensor

The crankshaft position sensor should be located behind the vibration damper/harmonic balancer and it will have to be removed before the crankshaft position sensor can be replaced. (Let me know if you require assistance with the proceedure)

Also, it usually requires a special tool to align that sensor (available from most auto part stores) and if the sensor is not properly aligned then damage to the sensor or the tone ring can occur.

Here is an image of the crankshaft position sensor with the vibration damper/harmonic balancer removed.

2000 buick lesabre stall after starting or after running for 30 minutes

I have a 1996 Lesabre. I had a similar problem that slowly got worse. I brought it to two different mechanics that did diagnostic checks and could only "suggest" what to replace to fix the problem. Their problem was that it wouldnt stall out while they had the mv. After replacing a bunch of sensors and the fuel pump/ filter, I solved the problem by replacing the Crank Sensor. Its located behind the lower crank pulley on the 3.8 lt motor. Hope this helps!
