Question about 1998 Buick Riviera

1 Answer

I replaced the battery in my 98 Riviera last month. This past weekend, after driving the car all afternoon, everything on the dash went blank. No power at all to anything. Where do I start looking for this problem?

As you just had the battery replaced, I would start with the connections there. After that, have your battery and alternator tested. Sometimes, batteries are bad right out of the box!

How are you testing in the vehicle ? Just volt meter on battery post's while vehicle running ? Fuse an fusible link good ? Have turn on signal from the PCM - engine computer ? Any DTC'S stored in the PCM ?

Alternator keeps going out


Have your battery checked before you put any more alternators in the car. If your battery has a dead cell or just needs replaced it could be making your alternators cover too much slack and burning them up.

You can hear the relays clicking no start


I would start with the battery. Have it tested. Advanced Auto parts or Autozone can test it for free in or out of the vehicle.

Lately my accord (98) has been cutting off while driving


Sorry I guess this should have been posted as a solution. Here goes again...I had the exact same problem. After many test and trials, I changed out my ignition switch last month. "MAGICALLY" No more problems!!!! Everything started working normal again. Problem is that everything in that car goes through the ignition switch. Even the battery charges through it. Anyways, I bought an new one from adavanced discount auto parts for $55 installed it myself. Problem solved. If you want to install yourself here is an awesomely detailed link that really helped me: http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=2353017
I hope this helps you the way it did me.
