Sounds as if the window regulator is bad. fairly common problem. it is most likely allowing some contact with wiring or a sensor in the door triggering the security light. Window regulators can be bought fairly reasonably at any Auto Parts store.

We replaced the car's battery and now the dash board lights blink

Under the dash on drivers side is the black box for the security system. If you look on the box there is a little red button. Push the button for a couple of secounds and it will click and stop your marker lights and dash lights from flashing. It is a stock anti theft part of the security system. Hope this helps.

1998 Buick Park Ave wont start

Roll down the drivers side window. Close the door. Turn the key to the On position but not cranking. Let it sit there for ten minutes with the key on. After ten minutes turn the key off and then try to start the car. I hope this helps.

Hello Ron,
There are a few things you can try, first of all take a look under the drivers side brake lights you will see a bunch of wiring there going into a block sometimes the wires will just fall out after a few years of getting hot,cold ect. Now make sure that all the wires are plugged in and tight. Now if thats all ok the next thing you can try is to take off the negative post on your battery and leave off for about 10 minutes should be enough to reset computer. Now after you do that you may have to reset the security system, Now what you want to do is make sure battery is hooked back up, and now you want to make sure your window is down drivers side in case doors lock, Unless you have another set of keys, Now use the key with the little sensor on it put it in ignition and turn key to the on position and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes remember not running the engine just in the On position, After that time go ahead and try everything out, Everything should be set back to the factory setting on your computer and security center. Alright Ron Thats about it for now. Give me a hoot if you need to ask me anything else. OK And Thanks for Using Fix Ya Bear001
