HI. This could be as simple as a faulty wire or a bad ignition switch assembly. Use the procedure below to isolate the culprit.

1.Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.



2.Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.



3.Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.



4.Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.



5 Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

Do the ignition switch an door locks take the same key in a 66 Buick lesabre


Kevin, Ignition and door locks are different cut keys on 1966 Buick. the ignition key was square/octagon shape and the door lock/trunk key were oval.
Below are links that show the difference.

Is the gasoline in the carb boiling, or are you loosing spark to the plugs, or is the starter hot and not turning the crank ?

Battery good, alternator good, starter good but my 1966 oldsmobile the alternator isn't charging the battery


Have you replaced the voltage regulator?
Unless you have changed the charging system and eliminated it, the alternator does not have a built-in voltage regulator like the newer ones do.
Be blessed.

I have a 1966 Buick Skylark and none of the tail lights or headlights work, when you turn them on, the fuses are good and the bulbs are good, anybody have any other ideas of what it can be


Well the first thing I would do is check to see if the headlight switch is getting power from the battery-starter. The switch has a circuit breaker built-in for the headlights, and the tail lights are on a fuse in the box under the dash.
