Question about Buick LeSabre

Open Question

The 83buick lesabre just got a tune up. I don't have my alternator hooked up to the battery. I had to buy another connector for it. Would that make it not crank. Or just recheck my tune up

should have a large guage wire from back of alternator to post on battery. then there is a connector that needs to be plugged in. if the wiring connector is gone, you will need to buy a new connector for the alternator and wire it. best to buy chilton manual to find wiring diagram to know which wire goes to what terminal

Battery tests good & alternator tests good on 2002 buick lesabre. keep charging battery and then it does start, but not after driven for about 20 miles, then it won't start again.


Hook a digitalmeter to the battery in your driveway while the car is running. It should read 13.5vdc. If it doesn't, something is pulling it down. We can start there. Looking forward to hearing from you again.

My 1998 buick lesabre wont crank and it makes a clicking noise when I try to start it


if it clicks more than likely a jump start will get it going and unless the headlights or other power is left on you might need a battery or alternator also the car is new enogh it will need a direct 12 volt power source for the pcm so if you un-hook the jumper cables and it dies it definetly needs a battery hope this helps

Removing alternator is connected to any hoses, looking at the back of the alternator I see two hoses that the housing is connected to the housing of the alternator.


There are 2 wire connectors in black tubing. Make sure to disconnect the battery 1st. The one is a connector with a pry up tab. The other is a red wire that is bolted on 12mm i think socket only.
The other thing that looks like an alternator but isn't is the a/c pump with hoses!!
The alternator is near the firewall cab the ac is nearer the radiator.

93 Buick LeSabre. Battery not charging


use a volt meter while the car is running to check the main wire or large red wire coming off the back of the alternator it should read a steady 14 volts, the volt meter must be set at dc 10 amp settings, ground the black wire to ground or a metal surface some where on the car and touch the red probe wire on the volt meter to the main terminal of the alternator as i said it should read a constant 14 volts if it doesn't the alternator is bad.

1988 Buick Lesabre drained battery


Sounds like you have a bad alternator. but first , check the battery connection o the positive side where the cables overlap eachother. they like to corrode in between the two cables and do just what your saying. but it really sounds like you need an alternator. have someone check the red wire on the back of the alternator and see if there is power there al the time- should be. if so replace the alternator, i have had many new or not vary old one fail. - good luck
