Do you have good spark ?? Also you can have fuel pressure and not enough volume to keep it running . A good way to find out one you get it running try spraying carb cleaner in small burst to see if the engine stays running . If so then you'll need a fuel pump.

It is possible that the clock spring was left unplugged or damaged while repairing the turn or multifunction switch.

Try disconnecting the MAF sensor and see if it dies then. If not you can attempt to clean the MAF sensor or replace it.

We have had check lights on vehicles since 1981,
33 years or more,so what possible question could you have?

The car has to go to a shop to be diagnosed & the fault found
& repaired

2001 Buick... | Answered on May 19, 2014

Is this after repairs? If so then it's one of two things. One is the codes must be cleared. Second is that the repairs completed didn't fix the problem

The whining sound that you here could be coming from a number of places. It may be a coincidence but I think you may be talking about the transmission's pump. You may want to buy a stethoscope. This tool, if properly and carefully used, will help pin point a mechanical noise. Other possibilities are the power steering pump, tensioner and idler bearing, A/C compressor or A/C clutch, or Alternator. I hope this helps, write back if you have any other questions, good luck.

You will have to troubleshoot to find out if the blower motor is burned out, you may have a bad control module, or check for a blown fuse. If you had a squealing noise coming from inside the dash while it was working, you can count on the motor being bad.

if your refering to the odometer lights going out this happens alot I see. one of the circuits on the back of your cluster shorts and actually gets pretty hot then some times tapping your odometer reset gets it back on usually only a temp fix :O( I read a few years back that odometers are warranteed for life by buick. dont quote me on this as it was about 8 years ago and may no longer pattain. I had mine go out. bought a new one on ebay and 2 years later say thing.

And what is the question?

Brakes come apart at least once a year, for rust removal,
inspection,lube & whatever machining or parts replacement
is required

Not every year, you have to replace anything, but they have to
come apart to do what I described or they fail to work correctly

Have you checked for OBD 2 System Codes?

2001 Buick... | Answered on Apr 02, 2014

The easiest thing to do to have that checked is go to autozone, checker or someplace like that. They test for free and can tell you what the light means. Then we can figure out what is wrong.

the fuel pressure sensor tell the pcm if pressure inside tank can be achieve.if your problems is when you fill up the tank then could be a separator inside the tank or fill tube restriction
hope it helps

well there are a few things this could be. first on most dash boards up toward the window is a little square. this is usually the sun sensor. if covered or dusty the sun won`t hit is and your lights remain on. if it is damaged it will need to be replaced. there are also ways of using your lights manually. They does this with a combo or things at the same time. like putting your key in the one position and turning your lights on manually while holding a door lock or some other combo. Try pulling your battery for about 20 minutes and put it back on PS MAKE SURE YOUR RADIO DOESN`T HAVE A SECURITY SYSTEM AND IF SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THE NUMBER OTHERWISE YOUR RADIO LOCKS.
