How do I move my driver side power seat and mirror back to my setting? It got wet during a rainstorm. And the seat moved forward towards the steering by itself and won't move at all anymore.
I have a '98 Riviera with only 75000 miles and is a great car! But when the spring is coming and outside is hot I'm getting angry (because of my car VATS system). The Security light stays ON, I have to wait 3 min to try again. The engine starts. I have no problem with fuel pump, radio, panel lights...everything works well. Sometimes I have to try twice(3 min rest). This week I had a rest 3 min near a gas_station's pump which is not funny.
I suppose that there is a problem with the key contact inside of ignition_cylinder or with the reading of the value (ohm) on the key's chip. Also I'm looking about how to bypass this system. Here we don't have any GM dealer or GM auto_service. I'm trying to solve that on my own or to give an advice to my mechanic what to do.
I'm sure nobody will try to still this car (In this part of Europe is very rare and only a few people love old american cars). Help please!

Apparently it's not the high pressure side so it has a leak. Well we went to put the uv leak finder in but the low pressure side is reading 120...but i was told until i put freon in it will be high...cani put the freon in so i can put the leak finder? Cuz its auto air
The loud constant humming noise stops after about 1 minute and will sometimes start up again while just sitting there. Could this be the fuel pump?? It's supercharged and the noise seems to be coming from above the drivers rear tire. Thanks
It will start one minute and the next it will
It is hanging on by the electrical wires.
The only clip I see is riveted on the the inside of the trunk wall through the bottom. I cannot find any installation instructions anywhere. Please help!
The car stopped while I was driving and will not turn over when I attempt to start it. It just cranks but will not turn over the engine as if it is out of gas but it is full.
The door locks on my 98 Riviera unlock on their own when you are riding down the road and even after you have shut it down. hope someone can give a clue.
The 98 Buick riviera is blowing out hot air. Someone said it might need freon.
