    Default 96 Buick intermitent start problem

    If you seen my name, this is the same car, another issue.
    Intermitently, the car will not start. You turn the key and nothing.
    I am going to check all the connections to the starter. I am also
    taking a close look at the anti theft key. I have heard they can go
    bad because of a poor connection. Two things have happen, car starts,
    go somewhere, come out, car won't start. Another time, car started,
    shifted from reverse to drive and stop. In each condition, the engine
    does not turn at all, however, the lights and fans all work o.k.
    Battery is not that old and the one time I saw this I was able to
    measure the voltage and it looked good.
    Thoughts?

    First guess would be bad starter solenoid.

    I would also check the PassKey system (that's what the chip in your key is
    for). Is your "Security" light on?

    No Security Light. However, I decided to check the battery and
    connections. Found a battery going bad when we put it to test.
    Replaced and will see if it solved the problem. All of the battery
    connections, starter connections and cables are good.
    Thank, Tom
