The positive is connected to the starter relay on the back of the starter. The negative is attached to the block as a ground.

Why won't my 1999 Buick Regal LS start?


You most likely have a low system voltage issue caused by a defective battery. Pull it and have it tested, if it is ok then clean and inspect the battery cables for corrosion.

Car is clicking when trying to start battery is new starter is new is there a starter relay on the fire wall there is 8 relays there wondering if that could be a problem


Listen to the clicking. If it comes from the starter solenoid (on the starter), then relay is not the problem, cause starter relay has passed current through to starter.. If clicking from one of those relays on the firewall, that might be a bad relay. You should be able to find the click by ear and by feel. Be sure and check your battery connections for tightness, the battery ground, and the starter connections. Could be a loose connection not letting the large current pass through.

2002 buick Lesabre (Limited) - When operating the AC I have warm air coming out of the on driver's side vents and cold air on coming out the passanger side vents.


check battery,battery cables,starter,starer solenoid, check if your battery have any power left, by turning lights on, if light is strong then on the starter motor,remove the remote wire, the thin wire connected to the starter from the ign. switch, instead of the remote cable, try to by pass it, with battery voltage, with ign switch on on pasition, if your starter works the starter is good if not change the estater, if starter works then check the remote wire, could be damage, could be the starter switch, fuse , or the starter relay. when working on car always make sure if the engine starts there is rotsting components. Thanks

99 corvette put key in security light goes out, turn key and exerything on dash goes out gages go to zero. doese not crank


With the gauges going to zero it's an indication the battery don't have a good charge or the battery cables need cleaning, tightening. In other words when you turn the switch over, all the components are draining the little power it has or you have a bad battery cable connection.
