The problem has to be wireing.checking with an ohm meter will not tell you for sure how much current the wier will carry so you need need to find where it starts and ends and disconnect bothe ends.put a jumper to ground in one end then hook a test light to your positive battery terminal,put in the other end of the harness and see if the light is bright or dim.

2003 buick park avenue misses badly on acceleration or hill climbing. ZSpark plugs show burn lines on ceramic part replace and it reoccurrs


Did you also replace the spark plug wires? The burn lines on the ceramic would indicate that it's jumping fire. Are the burn lines on ALL the plugs or just one or two? If you look closely at the wires in the dark, you will be able to see the spark jumping to ground if the wires are bad. If you have already replaced the wires and still have that issue, it's possible that you have a bad coil pack or ignition module.

Need a picture of firing order on a 1991 Buick Park Avenue


Check this site I believe the black images is the coil pack firing order. I used a coil pack from a different model but had to open it up and change the firing order since the spark wires wouldn't reach for my 91 buick. You should have some knowledge about wiring before attempting that. Basically I just switched the wiring on each side inside the coil pack.https://www.google.com/search?q=buick+1991+park+avenue+firing+order&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=reisU9eSH9HioAThh4D4BQ&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1440&bih=748

On the magnavox coil pack the opposite plug on the coil pack fires at the same time. If it is dead only on one side it may be the coil pack {six terminals on one brick looking unit.}
