Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

3 Answers

I pulled into the gas station the other day, and turned the car off. I walked in and back out and went to start the car. It wasn't turning over. Car has ran fine for 170k and now this. I replaced the ignition module and it still didn't fix. Gas pump works fine and my battery was drained over this first night. Now the battery will barely hold a charge and I don't know what the problem is? Would a bad battery cause this to happen?

Yes it can, if the battery has a weak or dead cell in it, it won't hold a charge, also the alternator should be checked to see if it's charging the battery, it should put out between 14 to 15 volts.

You say it wont turn over? a ignition module has nothing to do with turning over. You will need to charge battery and have it load tested, to verify if its good or bad, and go from there. Its a help to describe the problem as Cranks or Does not Crank, or Cranks but doesnt Run.

Definitely , Without a battery you will have no power to start your engine. You should have your alternator checked as well most part stores will do this check for you for free. You could have a bad cell in the battery or perhaps it's just time for a new battery and possibly alternator.

That's a lot of coolant to lose in that short amount of time- especially with no visible leaks. It sounds like you might be losing coolant to the cylinders which could be from a bad head gasket or a cracked block. Good luck, let us know what it was!

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
