Question about Buick Century
HELLO: Sounds like a failed battery or a failed starter. If you can try jump starting the car. If you have good solid connections when you try to jump start then you might have a failed starter. ONE WAY TO CHECK THE STARTER IS HAVE SOMEONE HOLD THE KEY IN START POSITION AND HAVE SOMEONE TAP THE STARTER WITH A HAMMER, IF THE CAR STARTS THEN REPLACE THE STARTER.

The starter is bad or the battery is dead. If the battery is fully charged then the starter needs replaced. The solenoid inside of it is clicking

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

Check your battery cables. Remove them and clean the contacts, if the ends are replacements take them apart and clean. Use a wire brush or sand paper. Make sure you remove the negative first and reinstall it last. Also check the battery and fuse links. Your problem is in there some where the battery, cable ends, cables, or a fuse link. If still no start let me know the results and we can go from there if need be.

SOURCE: 91 Buick Park Ave won't start
i just came across this problem myself the other day. i have a 91 buick park avenue that sometimes won't start. i checked several things out like cable connections and coil pack etc. etc. come to find out it was the wiring that came off the coil pack and connects to the crank sensor. the wiring that ran over top of the water pump had finally heated up so bad the coating on the wires had melted and when the engine got hot enough the wires would come in contact and send false signals to the computer not letting it start. after the car cools down and the wires contract it would start. so check the wires from the coil pack to the crank sensor to make sure the wires are not melted together.
