Buick Park Avenue Problem Report
Buick Park Avenue Car Won't Start and Security Light is On
Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.
car started once then won't start again thought starter but found no power to the start wire at starter when key is turned over. all fuses good, no power going into start switch at transmission. - fredman_is_1

I need to have this checked out, as well. Stranded numerous times & unable to start the car, only to find it will start at times & seem to work just fine...then stranded again in a parking lot or someone's drive, besides my own...bummer!!! - Visitor
Car ran fine for the last 950 mile trip we took, after we were home it set for 5 weeks. I went out to start the car - the security light is flashing and will not turn over or start. - Visitor
for 4 times during the last 6 months it had no power to start the engine. Battery wwas checked 3 times and AAA and dealer could not find problem. Went to NTW and they examined the car and said battery was bad. 7 weeks later it did not start again. There is no sign in the lights and no noise from the start attempt. I do believe it is electronics but I need something to point my dealer at the problem. - gtaylor
Car won't start and security light is on ran fine yesterday - Visitor
REPLACED IGN CYLINDER AND KEYS - Visitor
The key refused to go into the ignition. When I was finally able to get it in, the ignition wouldn't turn because the switch is broken. I'm having to pay a lot of money to have a mechanic come to my house to replace it, since I can't get it started in order to drive it to a shop. - Visitor
security light stayed on one day, but car ran fine. now it may stall as I drive, giving me no indication. - buggs1325
My car will not start after I parked and have been driving it all day. When the car is off the service engine light is on, but it is not on when the car is on. I do not know what to do! Usually when I get out of the car and lock the doors, use the key to unlock the doors and then start it it works but not today!! - Visitor
Car wont start i think its the security system locked - Visitor
car will start after system sets a condition that key chip failed while running. No repair performed, security light stays on. - basscombat

My solution was to bypass the key cylinder by finding out the resistance of the chip and placing resistors equal to that same resistance in line to the anti- theft system. - Visitor
