2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS Starting problem

Asked by Feb 11, 2017 at 06:17 PM about the 2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok in the morning or whenever I don't use for a
while it will start, but after I use for a while it won't
start and the check engine light is on. Or even if I try
and remote start, it won't start. Only starts when it's
cool.

Best thing to do is get it scanned for codes. This would point out the problem for repair. May want to take it to your local trusted garage.

Ran into this same issue with my Lacrosse - it ended up being that a cell in the car battery had gone bad or was going bad. I replaced the battery and all was resolved. I would start by checking your battery terminal connections to ensure they're good and firm. If so, then take the battery and have it tested to verify it's working properly. The other possibility could be that your alternator isn't charging the battery quite right and the battery only recovers after sitting. Good luck!
