Will a fuel pump from a 96 buick riviera interchange with a 98 buick riviera?

The pump will but the sending unit is different and that is all part of the so called "Pump Module"

Random shutdown

check battery connections at battery and starter ends. Check fuel filter, fuel pump relay, or maybe fuel pump is too weak to run engine at speed or under load. Can be coil or igniton module, map sensor, crank/camshaft sensors. Your description is pretty generic, so it possibly could be one of those "search till you find it" type repairs. Keep this in mind: In order for an engine to run it must have three things. Fuel, air, and spark. Air is easy to get. Fuel problems could only be the relay, pump, fuse, injectors. Spark is more hard to get, as you also need spark at the right time. So check igniton last, it gets real costly as you go. Coil, ignition module, any and all sensors ect.

1996 Buick RIVIERA security light stays on but car functions properly for now

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars/years. When the TDM starts failing, it will do it gradually and the car will begin to randomly don't start and then get worse with time up to a point that it won't start anymore. It's been a nightmare for us. You can find a great write-up here: , it was the only thing that saved my 94 Park Avenue that has the same security system.

96 Buick Rivera, won't start, won't crank

my friend has the same problem with the same exact kind of car when it doesnt crank over see if your security light stays on if so its your anti-theft system. check your owners manual under the security light portion.if the anti-theft system detects a problem with the chip in your key it will shut down the starter and the feul system for 3 minute intervals.
