Question about 1998 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

98 buick; Car will not turn over with the key, but when I put a remote start switch to the starter it will but won't stay running, it runs the first time I try it for about 15 sec. I tested all the relays I found and fuses. I'm not getting power to the starter relay from the switch which tests good. Any ideas? Thankyou in advance for your time.

Sounds like you dont have the right key pull the trim away from the ignition and look for a loop of wire around the ignition key area if so, you have an immobilzer system and need to have a key made if not sounds like some problem with the ignition switch please rate -jeff

The starter motor continues to run when the car is running on a 1999 Buick century


The Starter motor can keep running because of a number of things. It receives its power from the large contacts (switch) in the starter solenoid. WHen engaged, this starter sol. allows high current 12 volts to run the starter motor.
A number of things can cause the starter solenoid to stay engaged:
A) stuck starter solenoid mechanicals. probably not the cause
B) more likely a defective start position on the ignition switch in the ignition switch
C) possibly a gummed up ignition key tumbler
I would start troubleshooting with a schematic. Make your own or purchase a service manual. IF you pull off the wire from the switch (in the center console) which actuates the starter solenoid, and the starter motor continues to run, then its not the switch or the key tumbler. its the solenoid.
Troubleshooting is the logical process of elimination.

So I have a 92 Buick lesabre that won't turn over battery is good just when I turn the key it won't crank over now when I take a screwdriver to the starter and turn it over it will crank but won't stay...


Bad solenoid on the starter. Car should keep running tho if the key is on when you jump the solenoid with the screwdriver. If it doesn't, you have other problems, like a bad ignition switch or wiring. NOT the key switch, the one down low on the column the key switch activates.
