Buick LaCrosse QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My car won't start and I'm not sure if it's the battery or starter. When I pumped gas the past couple of times it wouldn't start right away it would make a humming noise for a while then start up. This would only happen when I would pump gas. I tried turning my car on and now it won't start but when I turned the key everything in the car would turn on on its own(whipers, radio, heater/AC and then the car alarm sound would go off too). I tried jump starting it too and it wouldn't work. Also when this happened the ABS, traction light and engine light turned on. Any help would be great.
The service dept stated the front bumper has to be removed, and that's why it will cost $1450.00. I find that way to expensive so I called around other dealerships and I'm being told that is too high.
Car has lights , but won't start until I cross jump the wire from the starter. Then it will start the rest of the day
replaced battery in car. Started it ran for 15seconds-shut down completely no power at ALL Lights horn dash etc. Keys will not remove from column no display nothing. can't move car at all as its nose 1st in garage! rechecked battery and cables/ fuses/ swapped some of the relays all look good HELP!!!!!
I have drove my car gotten in it put it in gear and it stalls 4 times now, after letting set 3 of the times it started back up . i pulled out of garage to go to work put into drive went 5 ft it died and will not turn over . car has 39,000 miles on it . I try to start it i get messages on dash , service power steering, service charging system, blind zone alert, service afl lamp, rear turn signal , and left tire shows 19 lbs . tire has 35 lbs in tire . when i push button to turn off ignition , the tack light go off and speedometer light go off, but radio stays lit, transmission gears stay light white no mark to identify what gear its in . and me accent lights on dash and doors stay on . I am thinking security module might be sending no password to BMC. Any help on issue.
Just had the key fob replaced and it's doing the same thing...
Back up camera comes on but very little color
The front end scraps when backing out of driveway on concrete
I disconnected battery it stopped then wait a awhile and put cable back tried to start again radio came in seat moved forward but would not start do you think it is the battery ?
I have new tires, want to make them last for as long as possible.
Just seems there must be a leak but I can't find it.
Happens every time, just goes from 1/4 full to E and sounds the alarm.
How many gallons of fuel can fit in my tank?
Where is the spare tire located?
My car seems to drift to the left when I am driving over 65MPH on the freeway.
When i press the gas the car seems to have a problem taking off like its the transmission. Can i still have it repaired under warranty?
Automated solid panel below sun/moon roof won't stay closed. Closes but then retracts immediately and stays open halfway.
Engine turns fuel pump is working but no firing from coil replaced module and crank sensor injectors not pulsing.
Repaired or replaced?
Was driving on the freeway while all power stopped!! Lost acceleration to a complete stop. No power sterring or breaks. Would not turn over!!!
when i turn the car oof sometimes it sounds like boiling water under the hood and when i lift the hood to check the coolent the cap be so hot that i cant even touch it..and it also has a fan clucking sound now
What is causing my front panel to be out. Do I need to replace a fuse. If so which fuse.. the fuse box is very confessing.
Slow down to stop mode & the whining comes to a stop - any idea?
Hear sound of a "geiger counter" from a tiny speaker on righthand side of ignition. Noticed it this morning upon turning key one click before turning over and throughout entire drive until key removal.
I put a fuel pressure gauge on and got 0psi. I don't understand though cause it has to have some kind of pressure if the car runs
It's been serviced. They fell me that the compressor is not turning off at all.
Fuses were ok. Guessing it might be bad blower control module, blower control resister, or bad blower, or some relay or large fuse.
this is a summary addendum to my earlier reports and hopefully my last..
Symptoms - The car cranks but does not start. I have had the car into the dealer 3 times and purchased spare relays and spare fuse box from them. Car became very unreliable...never knew when it was going to start. I replaced fuel pump relays 8 times until my third (and hope final) visit to dealer (Barnes Wheaton GM in South Surrey BC). Total bill so far about US$1700. 1st visit (Sep 15 2015)- they replaced fuel pump and relay. Car ran until..... 2nd visit (Dec 01 2015) - they replaced fuse box with used fuse box from Detroit because GM did not have any new ones at any warehouse!!! They read bulletin 15-NA-051 that referred to fuel pump relay problems due to rear seat clip and modified seat clip so it no longer protruded into fuse box cover. After this visit whenever the car kept on cranking past the usual quick start, I would stop cranking right away and check the fuel pump relay which was always fried. This happened about ~5 times until..... Jun 22 2016 - Visited dealer (after my phone calls not answered) to discuss repeated problem and possible causes with Barnes Wheaton Service Manager - he reviewed the problem with me for 1+ hours and found a deep mark in fuse box cover that indicated that the used fuse box installed in my car on Dec 01 had been in contact with the seat clip probably before being installed in my car (since the seat clip in my car had already been trimmed back.) 3rd visit ( Jun 23 2016) - they checked wiring between fuse box and fuel pump carefully at my request and replaced the used fuse box with new one I had purchased to keep on hand due to unreliable starts. So far after 10 starts it still works and I am a little bit more confident that we have found the problem (damaged fuse box terminal due to seat clip?), but only time will tell. One independent local mechanic mentioned that he had replaced fuel pumps etc regularly (1/week) because of poor quality gas available near our area. To eliminate this as a possible cause I have changed to super premium (no ethanol) to eliminate this as a possible cause. GM's lack of interest in this problem is disgusting...I have read over 60 complaints for this car from 2006-2011 models and no doubt this is a small sample. It is the most common complaint for the Lucerne on websites like this. Also: --The bulletin re the seat clip is not available publicly online, This is an easy home handyman fix and would save much frustration and dollars. -- Despite the fact that this was a common and serious problem with this car, GM did not stock new replacement fuse boxes. This prolonged my problem.

My car was parked in my garage overnight & there was a large pool of dark reddish oily fluid under the car in the morning. I initially thought it was under the right front wheel but after looking at the stain on the floor again it was in more of the center of the front end and then ran toward the passenger front tire. It has not had one drop of fluid since. I checked under the car and did not see any fluid spray anywhere. Anyone else experience this or know what it might be?
when car is in drive mode, a winding noise is coming from the rear axle. as you speed up the noise gets louder and levels out at about sixty mph. starting out at low speeds the noise is very low. tires have been balance rotated and checked out ok.
