Try the "throttle position sensor". It's very low voltage so doesn't show up easily. Had mine replaced, and so far no more problems. I was having the same problems as you are. I was told it could be the ignition module, or the computer, or the coil pack, but none of those codes were actually coming up. The sensor was less than $60 here.

My 1995 Buick Lesabre, six cylinder, intermittingly the check engine light comes on when starting car. If you shut car off, and turn back on, it goes out. My mechanic has checked it, but says there are a group of things it could be. The huge problem, a safety problem is the car will shut off when driving, for no reason. Or sometimes it won't start. There could be a month between events.

Hi,
I just bought a 2004 Buick Lesabre custom, beautiful car. When I start the car I hear noise coming from the back (trunk area? last about a minute then goes away (sounds almost like a compressor). It may also come on later while I'm driving, the dealer said it's the air suspension. Not sure about that, does anyone out there have similar experience????
Thank you, it will make me feel better if someone else has the same issue and hopefully it's "normal".


It is the rear air leveler. Not a issue. My neighbor said the same thing, after haveing the car for 3 years.

I have the same issue, Mechanic said to check for a broken wire between the drivers door and the kick panel on the driver side. Must be a bad ground. I reploaced all the moduals and still the same issue.

when you open the hood you will see above the head light assembly, on the right side, a hex nut (you may have to use a long screw driver). unscrew that one screw, and swing out the assembly. you will have full access to the bulb.

I'm having the same problem. From what I can tell this usually happens the first time I drive the car for the day. It typically lasts about 5-10 minutes and then doesn't come back on for the rest of the day. Some days it doesn't happen at all. I've went 3 or 4 days without it happening and then it might do it for 3-4 days straight.
This had been happening for a few weeks now so I need to get it looked at. My problem is that it is so random I'm not sure if they could find out what's wrong.
I have the exact same problem, did you find out what it was?

I have a 99 Buick lesabre. It starts up fine but after driving it for a while, the car shuts off, the battery light comes on. After letting it sit for awhile, it starts back up. The battery cables were loose but then I had them tightened up & thought it fixed the problem, but it cut off again last night but started back up. I had the battery, starter, and the alternator checked and they were fine. I don't knw what the problem could be. Any suggestions will help.
