Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.
Can I start by getting your VIN and any stored codes in the computer?
Thank you for that information. Does the engine start and run?
If not, does it crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?
Does it crank over?
Have you tried using another key?
Something came up. I have to step out. I am going to leave this question open for other experts.
new expert here
what is the year and make and model of this vehicle ?
what is it doing cranking over and not starting up ?
will it run on starting fluid ?
and a jump start will not help at all ?
if not in the under hood fuse box put your fingers ion the relay called start do you feel that relay click with your fingers every time you hold the key to crank position ?
ok and did this start out of the blue one day this issue ?
can you do this here and see if a relearn will work ?
IMPORTANT: This procedure is not available on vehicles equipped with option code (Z49 or BAE).If replacing a theft deterrent control module with an GM SPO Replacement Part, perform the procedure to setup a new theft deterrent control module prior to the 30-minute relearn procedure.
IMPORTANT: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
if you could jump start the starter or the starter relay and it will run it is NOT a theft issue as the theft system shuts off the fuel injectors AND stops engine cranking
this is not going to be a theft issue if you can bypass the starter for it to run
ok then the issue is the theft module or the computer keeping it locked out
have the dealer perform a relearn with there plug in scan tool and see if that will take
