2001 Buick Park Avenue ProblemsMode/Temperature Door Actuators May Fail
The mode and temperature door actuators may fail causing improper air flow or temperature output from the heating and AC (HVAC) system.
The mass air flow or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the cause of any stalling condition.
Do to a low or erratic voltage condition, the fuel gauge needle may "jump" around and become stuck on the back side of the "stop" below the "empty" indicator. This does not mean the gauge is broken. If the gauge cover is removed and the needle is gently moved back around to the correct side of the pin, the gauge will again function normally. When the needle is moved back to the correct position, the electrical problem that caused the needle to jump in the first place must be corrected or the needle may jump around again. The most common problems that cause this condition are a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable ends.
