Rear license plate does not work
My park avenue has star bit screws on both sides of the plate lights right at the top of the license plate holder. I just chaged them last week. I do not know what size the bit was and I am not sure your car is the same. My car looks just like the car in the picture just longer and a little bigger.

1998 buick lesabre 3.8. Replaced starter. jumped
voltage is a bit low. have you tried rotating the engine by hand with a socket on the crank., just to see if the engine is free to move. if the starter engages but not turn, it could be the voltage as they can be regulated this would stop it from flattening the battery via the solenoid, its usually around the 11 volts mark on some types. as low volts will damage the battery. or the battery amperage is not good.
1998 buick lesabre all control (radio, a/c) is off
Hard to say - using the data port to program a remote is unusual, and depending on what device or procedure you used, you may have screwed up the datalinks. You should start by using a code reader to see what trouble codes exist.
Where can I get the wiring diagram for a 1998 Buck
Starter enable relay is under the hood in a fuse box that runs along the bottom of the windshield wipers, there are (2) twist knobs and (1) wing nut in the far left hand corner of the fuse box cover. remove cover. now you will see a group of smaller fuse box remove covers and look inside there will be I.D. to tell you which is which.
Looking at the end of the solenoid on top of the starter, the battery cable hooks to the larger stud on the top "12 o'clock". A smaller purple wire connects to the smaller terminal at 3 o'clock and the stud at 6 o'clock connects to the flat wire coming out of the starter. The purple wire comes from the neutral/park safety switch, which is fed by a yellow wire coming from the start relay which is fed by a yellow wire coming from the ignition. The start relay is also controlled by the Pass Key decoder module. Hope this helps, as for starters.
Check the fuel pump relay
The fuel pump relay is located to the right of the glove box.
Remove three 8mm screws (along the front edge) and a wingnut (drivers side near the accelerator) to loosen the insulation panel. Twist out the light courtesy light and using a pair of pliers squeeze the plastic nipple to remove the SIR. Remove the insulation panel from the vehicle.
After the insulation panel is removed, the fuse/relay panel will be to the right of the glove box. The insulation panel should have a diagram of the fuse/relay panel layout.
The relay should be in the left column of relays just above the fuses.
A Good contortionist with small hands and this can be done in about 15 mins.

Engine blew white smoke. I replaced the head
You need to replace ALL the gaskets that seal coolant from ANYTHING... You may have a cracked head, cracked intake manifold,, or at worse a cracked block - between the coolant passages and the combustion chamber area...If you have a aluminum intake and cast iron heads.. this is a potential leak creator when the engine gets hot and cold quickly...make sure ALL the gasket surfaces are CLEAN.. and use:
DO NOT use silicone sealant - period!
