Have replaced the ignition switch and security wire on a vehicle we purchased which had no key. The dash gauges light up but the starter does not engage when the key is turned...nothing happens. Any idea what else I could check? I have not re-installed the air bag on the steering wheel after installing the lock-set. Does anyone know if the airbag has to be connected for the car to start?

How can I pinpoint exactly why this is happening? All this just from trying to change a bulb in my trunk.

I was changing a bulb in my trunk. The light lit for a fraction of a second, then nothing. Then I noticed my inside lights and remote door locks stopped working. I checked all the fuses and they were good. That only leaves me to believe that it's a cirquit breaker. Anyone know how I can reset one?

I added freon while the car was started and had it turned on high/ auto. Still not blowing cold air. I checked to make sure the freon wasn't leaking. Is there a fuse i need to change? Could it be an easy fix or should i take it to the shop?

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

The gas pump will stay running and also the 3 min delay to start comes on says security and i have to wait 3 min to start it.I had to put a key on the battery to turn it on and off every time i am not using it.Now it started yesterday the motor shut off going down the road.Can this be anything to do with the speedometer or any ideas?? Thank you..

It will start one minute and the next it will

I cannot find a replacement lock for the alarm system, only a standard lock. How can I fix this so I don't have to disconnect battery?

It seems to not shift properly. Normally when stopped at a light RPMs about 700. Lately its been above 1000 RPMs. I am getting horrible gas mileage. Any suggestions to figure out how to fix the problem appreciated.

I'm trying to find an auto trans range selector cable for my 1989 buick Riviera.

Driver door blows warm air while others are cool in a/c mode. Just opposite in heat mode.What component causes this and where is it located? Is there a diagnostic available from a dealer to identify the problem?

I do have power getting to switch because the motor does get hot. I assume the actual pull down bar is seized. What other cars share the same unit?

I bought a 95 buick riviera supercharged, only the 3rd owner, no prior problems reported...every now and then right after i put gas in it either won't start or dies soon after...when i put my foot on the gas it doesn't register and the last time in the midst of breaking down i lost power steering and breaks. i don't know if those problems are because it died or not but i do also have a gash in my muffler/ up by where it connects by motor. whats wrong n how do i fix it?
