Question about 2005 Buick Century

1 Answer

Car will not start

My 2005 Buick Lesabre will not start. The battery is just a few months old. I started it this morning, it ran a little while and then just shut off. I checked the battery and it is showing no voltage. I tried to jump it off but when I turned the key it would just made a clicking sound. I also smelled a slight burning smell from under hood at fuse panel. Please advise.

SOURCE: Car wont start, no clicks no sound

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck

SOURCE: smell gas under hood see moisture on engine as

check for a fuel leak, some will leak along the side of the car A fuel leak. in the high pressure side also known as the feed line will cause it to crank over longer before it starts the car .. If the car is running check under the car 9 times out of 10 you will see fuel dripping from the area of the leak Its not too often you will find it if its not running...good luck

SOURCE: THE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM AT THE IGNITION WHEN TURNING

Can you please detail it...


  • Your car probably have an immobiliser kit with the security system
  • This cuts off the engine during a start under the hood
  • This kills the power from the ignition point
  • The keys may be code protected
  • Check whether your security system is still active even if the doors are open!!
  • Try to click the the unlock\ lock button simultaneously, when the doors are open
  • Its better to remove the fuse of the security system and cut it off

Check the battery voltage. If it's less than 12.2 volts, you've either got a charging problem or something is draining the battery. Read this post on how to find a battery drain.

If the service engine light is on, it could be a faulty sensor or anything electronical with the car. It may even be something non noticeable. The only way to check exact problem is to run error codes.

Best to do a fuel pressure test, pump might be weak and dosent show up until it gets gets warm. Best to do the test after it quits again when pump is at its hottest. If you havent done it yet chg. fuel filter too.

Won't start, no click, leave for a while turn key it starts.


See if pulling up on the shifter lever makes it start.  You may have a bad switch.  Or try cleaning the battery terminals and retightening the battery terminals solves the problem.
