Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

When I turn the key to the start position, no power goes to the starter. If I wait a minute or two and try again, it starts. Weeks will go by before it happen again. It is becoming more frequent. The last time it happened, I noticed the security light was on when the ignition was in the off position. I watched until the light went out and it started . My car is a 95 Buick Lesabre custom. Thanks for any help offered.

Hi I have a 1985 Buick Lesaber. I turn the key and get nothing a few times. Than I turn the key and the dash lights up and it starts. What do you think? Starter? Battery?

My Cadillac cts 04 won't start... Every time I turn the key it won't even turn over... But the light that shows a car with a lock on it blinks what do I do


Sounds like the anti theft system is active m try this process. Turn the key on. Do not attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes. Turn key off. Turn key on. Wit for theft light to go off. Now attempt to start.

put the key and put it into the position just before the starter turns (do not start the car) push the gas peddle all the way wait 3 seconds and turn the key all the way back but do not take it out, now release the gas peddle and wait 2 minutes! remove key than put it back in and start the car! you should notice a better response while pressing the gas do this once every few weeks!

1998 s-10 security light


If the security light is hot or flashing when the key is in the on position, most likely the ignition key tumbler housing has failed.

You can try resetting the pass code by turning the ignition switch to the on position (do not crank or start the engine). Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position, wait 5 seconds and turn the key to the on position again and leave it on for 10 more minutes. Cycle the key to the off position again for 5 seconds the back on for a final 10 minutes. Once the final 10 minutes is complete, turn to the off position again, wait 5 seconds and now turn the ignition on and to the start position. The pass code has now been reset and it should start. If the reset does not work you will have to change the ignition key tumbler housing that contains the key code resistor.
Good luck

You have a security issue going on. Try turning the key to the on position and leave it on without trying to start the car. Wait about 10 minutes and the light will stop flashing and come one solid. Then try to start the car. Turn the key to the off position. Wait 60 seconds and then turn the key to the on position. See if the light is still flashing. If it is then try the process again. If it isn't flashing and it is on solid then start your car.

03 grand am 3.4l no crank at all. All the light on dash work good fuel pressure starter spins and engine starts and then stalls when jumping the starter directly installed new pass lock switch and...


If the Passlock switch has been replaced, the computer has to "learn" the new Passlock code. You will need to hook up a battery charger to perform the learning process. (It takes about 30 minutes with the key in the "ON" position and it will run the battery down.)

Step 1:

Turn the key to the "START" position and release to the "RUN" position. The "SECURITY" light will be flashing. After about 10 minutes, the light will stop flashing.
.
Step 2:

Turn the key "OFF" then back to the "RUN" position. (Do NOT try to crank it yet) The light will start flashing again. Wait about 10 minutes for it to stop flashing.
.
Step 3:
.
Turn the key "OFF" and back to "RUN" one last time. The light will be flashing again. This time, when it stops flashing, do not turn the ignition off. Instead, turn the key from the "RUN" position to "START". The engine should start and run. The computer has now learned the new Passlock code.

Please help myself and others by taking the time to rate my answer. Thank yoou for using fixya!

POSSIBLE CAUSE BATTERY CABLES COULD BE LOOSE OR CORRODED OR BAD GROUND CABLE.YOUR STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER IS FAULTY.YOUR CAR COULD BE IN THEFT DETERENT MODE.ALSO CHECK IGNITION FUSE TO MAKE SURE THE IGNITION SWITCH IS GETTING POWER.BECAUSE A BAD IGNITION SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO START PROBLEMS.

2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD 6.0 Won't turn over


I have seen many ign switchs. Check to see if the theft doesn't flash when you try to start. It is still posable that the starter is going. Have someone crank the engine. Check for power on the purple wire. If there is power and the it does not crank. Check that the big wire has a soild 12 volts. You can use a screw driver and jump the purple and the big 12v battery at the starter and it should turn on if not replace the starter

You may have a starter or ignition switch issue. I would guess starter with just the information you are giving. Of course with electrical problems proper testing needs to be done to condemn expensive parts such as a starter.

Starter will not engage anti theft light is on it is a 2005 cobalt


I found this on a website try this

1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
(RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
an existing key to start the car.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.
