Question about 1999 Buick Park Avenue
Could be battery cables or a loose battery connection. I had a friend who said his truck would crank sometime and sometime not. I took the battery terminals (one at a time) and cleaned both terminal and cable. We put everything back together and it never did that again. The terminals and cable looked clean to me but we cleaned them anyway since we had them apart. Hope this works.

Well , The vehicle could have several problems. The vehicle needs to be scanned for codes. The electrical system has an open circuit. The open circuit can be a window switch , door switch , head light switch , a radio amp. or relay. There are so many possibilities that a very experienced mechanic is going to have to trace the wiring harness and check for power and resistance . Hopefully a code can be pulled to lead him in the right directions.
You have to make sure all the tail light bulbs are correctly installed and all the fuse installed are the correct type. The vehicle could have an open in the ignition switch and staying on all the time even with the key out and the engine off. I hope this information helps but to be honest there is no easy fix to the electrical system in this situation.
