Sounds like theres a problem with the ignition switch or the cylinder lock,your going to have to unplug harness connection under dash to see if radio goes out with the chime if it goes out when unpluged then the problem is in ingnition system, most likely its a jammed key sensor in cylinder, start there hope this helps,

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.

sounds familiar, I had that problem one night, started my car and the lights that are automatic didn`t come on. Well I started to check things I realized my emergency brake pedal wasn`t coming all the way up so I put the emergency brake on and then releast it and helped it come up with my foot and lo and behold my lights came on. sort of a safety feature to prevent you from putting your car in gear and going.

  • Go to Autozone. They can check the alternator while it is on the car.
  • Another thing you can do is start your car. while it is running remove the negative cable from the battery. If the car turns off then your alternator is bad.

1997 buick park avenue ultra


Hi. I also have a 1997 Ultra. I Had the same problem recently and I took the car to the dealer where they found out it was the gas pump, that is located inside the gas tank. Problem fixed. I also had an intermitent problem where the car would stall while driving, and would not start, also it was fixed by the dealer. Hope that helps.

P.S. Try to avoid just any shop with the this car. I had a lot of problems with mechanics that where not properly trained to work on the Ultra. In the end you are better of taking it to the dealer.
