Have the terminals of the battery and the starter motor inspected. Check for any wear. It may just need cleaning or tightening. If that does not solve it, it may be a bad starter. The solenoid may have worn out and need replacing. Inspect also the alternator as it may not charge your battery especially if it worked before after replacing your old battery with a new one. If you have a voltmeter, you may test voltage across the terminals. The minimum voltage is 12.7 anything lower would decrease the chances of the car starting.

When replacing battery on 93 buick, starter engages


were you trying to start it before you removed the other battery?
if so the solenoid is stuck.
turn the key on and hook up the battery and let it start then turn the key off and let it die. the kick of it starting should knock the solenoid back like it should be. if it keeps trying to start you will have to pull the starter and replace the solenoid

Jump start it from another battery, if it starts then your battery is bad. If it still makes the same sound
without starting then your starter needs to be replaced.

Check guages light comes on after short drive while engine is running, and the car died while driving on I-95 the lights started flickering getting dimmer. the radio would turn off when anything else...


It sounds like the Alternator is actually bad.
One great way to determine this:
Recharge the new battery with a trickle charge overnight. Make sure use remove the wires going to the Battery before recharging.
Replace the Battery Wires.
Get the Vehicle Started.
When it has Started: Leave it Running and Disconnect and Remove the Negative side of the Battery. If the Vehicle dies, it is the Alternator that is bad, and needs to be replaced..
The Battery starts that vehicle, and provides nominal power to certain accessories. The Alternator actual Runs the Engine and Recharges the Battery with a low trickled charge.

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.
