You may have damaged the starter when the engine kicked back.

The ignition module may have been defective.....but change the crank pickup too.........more likely it is the cause of the problems.

Change the crank pickup at every tune up..........it has a high failure rate.

If your engine has 250km or 150K miles you may need a chain soon.

How do you change the driver name and memory for seat and mirror adjustment on a 1997 buick park avenue ultra


I am not sure about changing the name as my 2000 park ave. only indicates driver one or driver two. To reset the memory for seat/ mirror position is rather simple: with the ignition on and the car in park, adjust your seat and mirrors to the desired position. Then press and hold the desired button (driver one or two) until you hear a beep, This is the procedure that works on my 2000 park ave. I hope this helps you.

I have a 94 Buick park ave. I replaced icm, ecm, tps, map sensor, cam position sensor, and crank position sensor. Starter tested good but not getting a spark. What can it be


Have you tried testing the ignition coil pack(s)? If this goes out then there wouldnt be any spark delivered to the plugs, this part is relatively cheap and is a common problem causing no spark.

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.


Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.
