Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
I have a 1994 buick park avenue, one day the car just wouldnt start and the security light came on. After three minutes the security light would go off and the car would start up. After few days, it would have the same problem but it would take anywhere from three minutes to an hour to get it started. We tried jumping it and that worked too. Now we have replaced the wire harness in the steering column, but the car will not start at all, and the security light flashes. Can anyone help? Itsbeen
I believe your car has a passkey security system,a chip in the key is actually a resistor which sends a signal to a module allowing the car to start.There are two very small wires running from the ignition (perhaps purple and white) which relay this signal it sounds like one of these may have become broken or disconnected,they should run down column and out under the right side make sure these are connected, if they are you may have to replace the key or the module as the vehicle will turn over but not start.Hope this helps.
