Buick Park Avenue Problems

HVAC Mode/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.

Engine Stalling Due to Mass Air Flow/Crankshift Position Sensor Failure

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.

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.
