Ok boys and girls I just left my 1991 park avenue up at a convenience store
because I pulled up, went inside, and came back out. I tried to start the
car but the car will not turn over at all. It has always run fine. It does
have a security key which I inserted and removed several times. I tired to
move it to neutral position and still nothing. The battery seems to be fine
and all the lights work. I even tried jumping it in case the battery was
low but nothing. Anybody got any ideas?
Check for neutral safety
Jump 12+V to the solenoid on the starter to get it to turn over.
Sometimes a simple PRND21 --> 12DNRP movement will get it to engage.
If no luck on that & there isn't a supplementary security system on
the car you might want to tow it home / to a garage, check the
starter, the wiring, the ignition harness, etc, etc, etc..
Could be your key, could also be your battery cables. You have a side
terminal battery, unless you changed it, and if the cables get a bit
loose you will not be able to start the car, and you will not be able
to jump it until you tighten the bolts. I had the same problem on my
88 PA, and that is what was wrong.
