The Park Avenue will not start

Asked by Dec 06, 2012 at 03:36 PM about the 2002 Buick Park Avenue FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn the key on, everything comes up fully, but when I move it to "start" the whole thing goes dead.  When I release the key, it stays dead for a count of three and then comes back to life again. The battery is good, the connections are good.  Is there a relay in the fuse block that relates to starting?  Could the relay be bad?

1 Answer


Ignition switch could be going bad, saw the exact same thing happen on an 01 regal. It needs to be tested by a compitent mechanic.
