Check to see if there are any codes. You can do that by placing a paper clip on the A & B terminal of the diagnostic connector under dash above the gas pedal. You will now turn the key on, engine off, which it isn't running anyway, you will hear the fan start running. Now the service engine light will blink once, then twice. Now the next blinks is the ones you want to pay attention too. When the last code is given, it will repeat itself. I would be looking for codes such as 14, 15 or 41,42, 43. You can call Autozone or Advance Auto if you get one to see what it refers too. If you don't get anything other than the 12, I would be suspective of a timing chain expectaully with that high of mileage. You can spray ether into the air intake while attempting to start it. If it has spark, it should start. If it doesn't start at this point, I would go after the timing chain.

I've got an old Buick Park Avenue with 200,000 miles on it that doe the exact same thing. It is caused by fuel leaking past the injectors while the vehicle sits overnight. Your problem may be something else. Have the computer scanned for codes. That's usually the best place to start looking.

1991 buick park avenue will not stay running and runs rough

I think you got your answer to the alarm issue. I had the same problem with rough idling, lack of power, and the chugging that occured when going up hill. I have a 1991 Park Avenue with 190k miles. Fixing the catalytic converter helped, but the real problem was in the ignition control module. It seems that older buicks will heat these units to the point that the glue inside melts and eventually exposes the electronics. Look for glue or exposed wires below the ignition coil. It's a $100 part that you should be able to change yourself. I hope that helps.
