Customer Question
Car will not start...

Car will not start or come out of park

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Buick. The Buick Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The button on the shifter will not depress all the way

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

All power seems normal except to the starter solenoid and shifter

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Buick Mechanic should know about your Buick?

Is a new battery and neutral switch.
