SOURCE: Low voltage, the battery runs low when running the car

What is the voltage you are reading? Is it below 13.2 or so? Also have you checked the current with the engine off to see if something else is working that should not be on. I ran across this twice while working on a truck and car. A relay that was wore out keep trying to close and would drain the battery every couple of months. Sometimes you can hear them clicking or buzzing. Touching them sometimes they are warm or real hot. But that is not a sure sign it is bad. In my Trailblaze they get hot but are ok. Another thougth is the belt on your alt, correctly set to spin it at the right voltage. I have ran across this many times lately with serpatine belts.

SOURCE: No air conditioning, flashing climate light

You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.

SOURCE: Air Ride on 1994 Buick Park Avenue

You can unplug it right at the pump...the only problem is that the rear end is going ride low and you will notice a steering power, and some bottoming out in the rear. The best thing to do is see if that shocks themself might be leaking and replace them if they are since eventually this will damage the pump. Sometimes it will just blow the fuse, which brings me to my next could just pull the fuse in the fuse box to shut it off.

SOURCE: have a new battery 1999 park avenue will not start

First lets start with any sounds the car is making. Is the car turning over or is it doing anything? Once we have that information we then can make a much better diagnosis. If not you will be playing a very expensive game of elimination.

SOURCE: I have a 1991 buick par avenue with 3800 engine.

If you have NOT replaced the CRANK sensor....REPLACE IT NOW.
It is known to fail often and cause stalling often.
It is so bad it should be replaced at every tune up.

Other common causes of stalling as you describe are.....failing fuel pump or connections to same.

A/C cycling lowering voltage and causing stalling?........not likely.
If you want to test that.....just disconnect the A/C pressure switch to prevent the A/C from coming on at all for a few days and see if that is causing a problem......before spending more $.

Well its not quite that easy.
You have an automatic system to control heat and ac. The control module may have failed, or it could be a blend door problem under the dash.
You could try pulling the HVAC fuse or the blower fuse to stop the air from blowing, but it may still be hot when the car is moving.
The fuse locations should be in your owners manual.

Buick Park Avenue 1999 "Drainage Problem"

This can be very difficult to diagnose.
Check the battery after turning the car off after a trip (do a load test). The battery should be fully charged, and if not, you still have an alternator regulator or battery problem and the battery is not charging correctly. If this is the case, driving the car will eventually fully discharge the battery.
If the battery is OK, then the car has several electrical circuits that are hot (power to them) at all times and one of them is probably continuously drawing unusually high current with the car turned off - these include interior lights, leveling compressor at the rear of the car, computers, remote control receiver and so on. You can start by carefully checking after you turn the car off and open then close a door if any light is being left on (inside the cabin, under the hood, in the trunk, in the glove box), if the compressor is running, or if anything sounds like it is running or making a low whining noise.
If there is nothing obvious, you will need to check how much current is being drawn from the battery after the car has been off for a while using an ammeter in line with the negative battery cable (you will need to remove the underhood light bulb if there is one) - it should be very low (much less than around one amp). If not, remove one fuse at a time until the current draw drops substantially - this will identify the culprit circuit.

In the meantime, a temporary solution might be to use a battery trickle charger when the car is not in use.

Hey the rear of my car is siting low,can i add air?

the airbag suspension system is busted, air is to be added by the compressor everytime you start the car or a person sits in it. the compressor, check valves, seals, and all the other parts of this system can and do go bad, one right after the other. the only real fix is to gut that system and replace with standard shocks and springs. check out the parts cost on and think about the labor, then think about the price of a replacement vehilce a few years newer. never have another air suspension system car, even if it is a BMW that someone gives you.

Falty air compressor

It could be in one of two places. They did mount an air pump under the alternator, (looks like the air pump for pollution control or it could be mounted near the rear axle if it is an electric one. I am not sure which one you would have so jack up the rear (safety first, use wheel chocks) and trace the air lines off the shock back to the source. I hope this helps you and good luck.

How do I get the air bag off the steering columm to get to the turn signal switch on a 98 Park Avenue? I have already removed the ground cable from the battery, and have attempted to get to the switch by...

Don't worry about removing the airbag itself. Unscrew it lift it up unplug it and take it away. If you are afraid of activating the airbag then removing it won't. The airbag is activated by a power surge this is only sent to the airbag on impact.

Rear auto air suspension not turn off

I used to have the same problem with my 1997 Park Avenue. The constantly-running noisy motor kind of ruined the effect of having a nice quiet car. After spending several hundred dollars on routine maintenance, it went away. I'm not sure which item took care of the problem, but I suspect it may have been replacing worn shocks. The motor is still noisy when it runs, but it doesn't run constantly like it used to.

The rear airbag suspension needs to be replaced.

If you are refering to your rear shocks you may just need the compressor pump, located under the hood on the left side. That pump may just be bad, especially if the car sit extremely low.
