1994 Buick Park Ave doesn't always start


Here’s a problem like I have from another forum with no replies –

Hello. I have a 1994 Buick Park Avenue Ultra with a 3800 Super Charged. The car has 58,400 miles on it and for the most parts looks and runs (when it runs) like new. So here’s the problem.

Sometimes when I turn the car on, I get all of the dash lights and such, but the car doesn’t turn-over / start. Basicly nothing happens. Now I was told be a friend, that I could leave the key in the on position for 8 - 10 minutes, and then turn it off, then try it, and it should work ? well that does work, that’s the good news.

The bad is, it seems to be taking longer each time I have to do this. After doing it, I can go 10 - 30 times starting the car like nothing every happened, but then, back to no start.

Now the only thing I’ve noticed is the security light seems to stay on when ever this happens, and when leaving the key turned on, once that light goes out, I can re-start the car.

My car would crank over but not fire up for 3 days. I tried this and it WORKED first time!

Anyone know why?
