Question about 1992 Buick Riviera
Turn key and nothing happens sometimes I get "error" on the dash.
This started after changing the starter it worked fine up to that point.
Does this car have an alarm system on it?

To my understanding, it is directly neither a wiring problem nor a computer problem. Technically the the computer is affected but it is not the source of the problem. The computer needs the dashboard cluster/instrumentation as part of its sensor array/feedback and therefore will not function correctly in the absence of the signals from the dashboard.
There are specialist for this kind of troubles which unfortunately is not an easy user repair. Perhaps your best bet then would be to consult or seek the services of these qualified professionals. Pls try Mr. Wizard. You can verify if your particular model is repairable by them here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

In order to to clear an error code your best bet is to hook a diagnostic scan tool to it. chances are you have an active code that won't allow a gate to open to close the circuit. if you did not have but a bad starter and now you can't get it to start. you might have had a voltage spike when you rehooked the battery and either a fuse blew or a relay went bad. check all the fuses and relays first be for going to a scan tool. also make sure all your ground cables and straps are tight. please rate this solution. thanks
