Question about 1989 Buick Riviera
I would take the car to an autoparts store and have the battery condition and alternator output checked. Most parts stores will do this for free. Since the message displayed indicated an engine electrical problem, checking the battery and alternator output is a good start toward isolating the problem. The generation of this message indicates a possible problem in the starting/charging system and these areas would be a good originating point. Check that you have a good and clean engine ground and clean and tight battery connections. I find that electrical problems are the worst to troubleshoot and sometimes you find the problem simply by process of elimination and careful observation. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
