Question about 1998 Buick Century
I have a 1998 Buick Century Custom with a 3.1 litre engine. I turned the car off when I got home from an errand and went to start the engine again because I forgot something and all I got were clicks out of the starter. I bought a good used starter from a reputable used parts dealer and I can't even get a click out of this new starter. I've triple checked all the wires and they are all OK. I just can't figure out why it is having this problem. I have all the dash and head lights, but can't get anything out of the starter now at all. I put a battery charger on it and it's pulling 4 volts. I can't get the electric windows to work but the radio and cassette and headlights work fine. What could be causing this problem?
Do you have 12volts to the small wire on the starter while you are trying to crank or in the start position? and is there a constant 12 volts to the big red wire on the starter? you may have a bad ignition switch or starter relay first answer the above questions and i will help you further -jeff
