    I have a 1994 LeSabre that would not start. On further investigation, there was not fire to the plugs. I removed the ignition module and took it to a local auto parts store for testing. It failed the test. I replaced the module and it ran great for about 3 days and the same problem re-occurred. The "new" ignition module was taken back to the store where it failed the test. They replaced it. I installed the second "new" module and the car started. The next day the car will not start. The symptoms are the same.

    I have a Chilton manual, but it is not a big help. Is there another electrical problem that could be causing the ignition module to fail or am I just getting bad parts?

    To answer the question about fuse and relay location:

    You will find it under the hood on the firewall, just below the windshield wipers.

Obviously that the ignition you bought is broken or not fit with your car.

I need the firing order diagram of a 1990 Buick LeSabre? I also need to see a diagram of what wire goes to what plug? Replacing ignition coil and module ?

I would ask a buick car dealer. Someone in the service dept should know. Maybe one day you could just drop by there, go to the service dept and ask the guy at the service desk. He can pull out a service manual and in about two min. tell you everything.

Thanks for the help on my 93 buick le sabre ive replaced the crank sensor but it still wont start. cranks over ok. no spark. the ignition module has been replaced

thats weird mmmm make sure than you have power going to the black and pink wire or pink with black stripe wire when you turn the ignition on, i don't know what else to recomend you since im not close to the car but the only coming problems on these cars is the module or the crank sensor, did the module installed on it was new? or used? if not sure or even if is new call to auto zone
and ask them if they test ignition modules for free i belive they do and if tehy do take the module out and take it to them, for testing, also by the time you remove the igniton coils turn the ignition on, and make sure you are geting power to one of the coil conectors, and the only way to get to the conectors is by removing the coils, and if there is not power then your ignition switch or a lecttrical problem is present, also make sure to do a cotinuity test to the wires coming from crank sensor to ignition module, check them for open or short to ground
