1995 Buick LeSabre won't start

Ok, so my Buick had a fuel pump problem- I replaced it. However, about a month later, the car started dying at stops or when I took a corner. Then about 2 days after, it stopped completely. I cannot start it back up. There is no noise whatsoever when I attempt to start the car, just dead silence when I turn the key. I know it's not the battery- the battery is brand new. I checked the fuel line on top of the engine and I have fuel pressure. I'm thinking it's the starter- maybe because I had to start it back up when it died so many times on the road, maybe I fried the starter, but I don't know for sure. If anyone could give me some advice on what the hell to do, I would greatly appreciate it!!

    yes, i have power- its a new battery. and yes, i can hear the whir of the fuel pump when i put the key on the run position- i also pressed in that fuel valve and fuel sprayed out a little so i know theres pressure. but no, there is no click, i turn the key to start it and there is nothing.

My car is a 95 buick century. frequently when i stop and shut the car off , the next few minutes when i try to start it it won't start. i have battery power as far as the whir of the fuel pump, and lights, gauges come on but when i turn the switch it won't start. Is this the starter or ignition switch? After about 30 minutes or so, it will start again.

Hi estark
im dave
when you attempt to start you get nothing or do the lights on the dash light up?ie do you have power
second when you turn the key to the run position(not start) do you hear the whir of the fuel pump behind you? You probably do if you have fuel pressure. This is another indicator that you have enough power to power the starter.
when you turn the key to start do you hear a click at the front or no?post me back

    hi estark

    dave again

    next thing i would do then is to apply a jumper cable from a running cars battery directly to the starter. put the positive cable on the large screw at the rear of the starter that the battery cable goes to and touch the negative jumper to a good ground. You will have sparking that is normal but if the starter engages it is not the starter. if the starter whirrs but doesnt engage remove it and you'll likely find some mechanical damage to it like a broken nose cone or the rubber seal out of place. If the starter does nothing replace it. If it whirrs but doesnt start when you remove it look at the flywheel that the starter teeth engage to see if there are any broken or missing teeth

Why does my 94 buick stops running for no reason, acts like it is running out of gas


Could be anything electrical. A weak relay, the coil pack or ignition module, and so on.
You'll need to figure out what is loosing electrical power when it fails to start to know what to test. You might start with the fuel pump relay.

Turns over,but wont start.


Did you check base fuel pressure with a gauge before and after replacing the pump ? Is the pump getting power from the relay ?
The fuel filter is under the car and should have been replaced with the pump.

Sometimes my 1995 buick lesabre wont start then later it starts


These cars are notorious for failing antitheft systems. When this happens, the car temporarily turns off the starter as a theft prevention measure. It normally resets in about ten minutes, and warns you with a light on your dash that reads SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. This link explains the problem, and how to fix it.

Car dies while driving and want start back sometimes


I would check the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay I am guessing if you let it sit for awhile it starts then one day stops again and over and over if that is the case definitely 1 or both of those things

Whats wrong with my 1995 buick lesabre when i start it it dies,then start again and dies?


sounds like a fuel blockage, remove the supply hose from the fuel rail and turn the motor over to see if fuel is coming through, if no fuel check the fuel filter, if no fuel you could have a faulty fuel pump in the tank if that is where it is located on your car

1995 buick lesabre custom. has a new fuel


even if you have preasure in the line that does not mean you have fuel going into the engine. you should check the injectors to see if they are spraying and if not you need to check the injector pulse to find out if the PCM is sending the signal to them to spray. to check injector pulse you will need a noide light to test the pulse it the light lights up you have pulse, but easy way to check is pull an injector and turn the engine over see if it sprays.
