Asked by Feb 21, 2017 at 10:01 PM about the 1999 Buick LeSabre Limited Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 buick lesabre limited. Use to
start an run an then when I shut it off
wouldn't start again won't even crank over.
When I attempt to start it power cuts out foe
about 3 seconds. The battery is good. I
arced the starter it cranks it but won't start.
Thought it may be security system but light
doesn't flash after door is closed or in the on
position. Any ideals what this may be?

Check your battery cable connections at both ends. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Definitely sounds like a bad battery cable connection. HTH. -Jim
