I've had my 1994 buick in several times to be serviced for the very same
problem, over and over again, and I'm tired of parts being replaced.
My buick when you try to start it, turns over just fine, sounds like it
starts but as soon as you turn the key into where it should be while
running, the engine just goes completely dead, basically it stays running
only long enough for a second or two after it starts before dying. I've had
them do all sorts of computer tests, they said it was the passkey module,
not more than one week after having the car repaired I was stranded at work
and the car would not stay running. They took it in and it was a holiday
weekend, by the time they looked at it, the problem mysteriously went away,
and were happy to charge me another $100 for a problem they said was fixed.
I've had a host of problems with this car, around the time I started having
this problem, I was driving along and the car completely lost all power, all
readings and lights, literally the entire electrical system cut out then
kicked back in again. Ever since I've had this car, the battery light would
stay on while the car was running sometimes it would go out for days then
come back on again, and I've had the alternator replaced several times (3-4
times), as they keep burning out, also around the time I started having
these problems, the cruise control won't kick in, it just kicks off as soon
as it's engaged.
I've done some research on the car and apparently many buick lesabres from
1994 had faulty ecms but never did a recall. What is causing my car to not
remain in a running state after being started?
I would really appreciate some help from somebody, anybody, I cannot afford
to continue to have parts replaced on the car and paying labor costs for
parts that do not need replacing.
