Customer Question

I have a 2008 Buick Lucerne that I believe may be having some electrical issues. When I turn the key it tries to turn over but keeps cranking even though I've stopped turning the key. It wont start. Is this also associated with the interior fuse block?

Sorry for the slow response. I was not near my car. The fuel level is high and there is spark while cranking.Im not sure if there are any codes cause all the lights are lit after trying to crank. Also I smell an electrical smell everytime I try to crank.

Hello and thank you for the reply!

How do you know that there is spark while cranking? Did you use a spark tester to check for spark?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?
