I think I may be able to help you, but first we need to clear a few things up. Is it getting spark or not? If it is getting spark, why are we testing the ignition module? The next question would then be how did you go about determining that it is getting fuel? Have you tested your fuel pressure? If so, what was the pressure reading? Did you check for injector pulse to make sure that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is able to fire the fuel injectors?

Also, you are working with an engine where the ignition timing and the fuel is controlled by the PCM. Have you scanned the PCM for fault codes? If so, what codes did you get?

If you do not know the answers to these questions, or if you do not know how to do this stuff, post a comment to let me know. I can give you step by step instructions on how figure this out. These questions MUST be answered before anybody can give you any REAL help with your problem (Although many may try to "guess" - which rarely works and usually turns out to be VERY EXPENSIVE!).

Won't start no spark


Check all your fuses, under the hood and at the fuse panel for ign fuse or ecm fuse and make sure they are'nt blown, then check for power to ign module which is under the coil paks, should be pink wire. good luck...sounds like maybe your ign module or crank sensor may have gone bad.

1999 Buick Lesabre Custom will turn over but won't start.


sounds like it could be your crank sencer or being a 99 does it have a distributor or a coil over plug ignistion system called a DIS [distributorless ignistion system] , if it has a distributor it could be cap and rotor that you need. best bet is to get a diognostic systems check but if no codes detected then you need to check all in line fuseable links for a dead short,a fried brain box ,or a bad pron in your ecm [electronic control module ]

My 2000 buick lesabre want start fuel pump comes on when i turn the key i have spark at the coils.checked all fuses. Changed fuel filter but car still won't start its trying to start but just...


It could be the fuel pump. Sometimes you can hear them engage, but they are not pushing enough fuel pressure to run the car. This can be checked.

Replaced ignition module now it won't run at all


After changing the ignition module, you may have broken the communication between all the components in the anti theft security system. This is common on GM antitheft systems. Check out this link for how it works and solutions to security problems. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

My 1999 buick turns over but won't start I had the ignition module checked & it was ok it appears that i am getting spark any ideas why it won't start?


It could be that your fuel pump is not getting enough fuel to the engine to start it. Is your starter turning over or trying to start the engine.
