    I have a '95 Buick Lesabre, it worked fine for a while. Then one day I noticed that, twice, the clock reset to 1:00 and the radio was off, then later that night I went to start it and when I turn the key everything died, and there was exremely low battery power, the battery power was fine just before that. After a few minutes of sitting the power would be back to normal until I try to turn the key.

You will want to have the crank sensor checked and check it for spark when this happens. The only problem is that it will need to be in the cut out mode to get a correct diagnosis. You can try and warm up the car and spray the crank sensor with water and see if it cuts out.If it does it is bad. This car has a high failure rate on the crank sensor and the ignition module. But when it is running good the two componats will test good. I've also seen computers just shut off in these cars for no aparent reason. Tuff to nail down in any event. Have it checked for codes and see if it has stored any thing. Let me know and I will try to help you further... Thanks. Dan

Dubeone suggests several good things to check.
I will add checking the speed sensor.
I know of a case where at 35 mph, the sensor was showing 135 mph, while being monitored.
As a precaution, the computer limits the maximum speed to 125 mph, as I recall.
This produced a symptom similar to what is described.

You need the charging system and the battery tested first, then if that is good you need the system tested for a current draw that exceeds 500 milli amps and 9 volts. Autozone and Advance auto parts do the battery and charging system test for free, the draw test will cost about 1 hour of labour.

Have your charging system tested and battery tested. Any good parts store can do it. I suspect a bad alternator.

1993 buick lesabre shut off while driving,battery was dead then bought a new battery drove well for 3 weeks then shut off while driving again had to jumpstart it.


Your alternator is bad. It's not recharging the battery as you are driving. The car is using battery voltage until it is all used up and then the engine dies. Replace the alternator and recharge the battery.

The fuses and relays are on the back fire wall under the hood.Just remove the plastic cover.This is not a fuse problem but more than likely a bad battery or charging system problem.Check the battery.Have it load tested and have your charging system tested also.Make sure all the cable connections on the battery and alternator are all clean and tight.Hope this helps.Good luck.

i have a 1995 buick lasaber that was doing the same thing. we replaced everything that we could think of, including the things that are mentioned here. i took it to the buick dealership and they finally were able to find out that it was faulty wiring that connects to the crank shaft censor. they said it is a fairly common problem that is misdiagnosed all the time. hope this helps.
