Battery drains on 1989 Buick Electra. New Battery and New Alt. No lights staying on In the hood, glove box, truck or inside. What could cause this?

Its hard to say really it could be a number of things.

From my experience, id almost always go tot he power antenna first. This things always break stick bind etc and when they do they cause a nasty battery drain.

Will not turn over...brand new battery...will not jump start..absolutely no problems starting it since bought 3 weeks ago. Everything but paint job in great condition. What is going on?

Possibly the security system or the shifter safety interlock. Is the security light on? Did you try starting in neutral? I do not have the wiring diagram, but you might also look for a start circuit fuse and/or relay in the engine compartment relay box. To bypass all of this stuff and check the starter and solenoid, you can jump the solenoid terminals as I describe in the below post.

Please see my tip at .

I have a 1989 buick park avenue electra and I don't know how to remove the air filter box lid in order to change the air filter. I see no spring clips that are holding it into place.

I had a 1989 Buick Regal, and from what i remember, there were philips head screws, or bolts in the corners of the lid, that when unscrewed, they separated the top from the bottom, thus exposing the filter. And I believe they screw/bolt heads stayed connected to the top lid part.

Totally going on memory here. Hope this helps.
