1999 Buick LeSabre won't start, good battery but OBD reads 5.9V

Asked by Oct 30, 2015 at 02:16 PM about the 1999 Buick LeSabre Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When it first wouldn't restart it almost turned over with a jump.... A few clicks
on the starter... then it didn't make a sound. One badly corroded end of a
starter wire that goes to the fuse block on the firewall. Did a splice and put a
fully charged battery in. Got my dash lights and automatic door locks, interior
lighting back. But it won't start. The anti-theft light goes out like it should.....
No sounds under the hood at all when I try to start it.

Electrical is my weak point.... I have a volt meter.... Can you please explain how to send and read power for starter??? Really need to get my car back on the road.... Am without anything to drive right now and no money to waste at the crook down the street.....
