I have a 1999 Buick LeSabre. I had a certified mechanic look at and he said that the security code had to be reset. When I turn the key the lights will come on and the security light will flash but the car won't start. Does that sound like the security code. And there is a gas smell coming through the vents and the diagnostic thing said that it needed a new fuel hose, fuel evaporator canister, or purge/vent solenoid. Is that expensive to fix and can it be fixed by any mechanic?


Yes exactly.. What the mechanic said was right. It is a securit problem and it needs to be reset...The cost of the mentioned parts itself will come to around $100 i believe...It has quite little labour involved...P ... Buick LeSabre

SECURITY LIGHT STAYS ON IN MY 2000 LESABRE - 2000 Buick LeSabre


... 2000 Buick LeSabre

I have a 1995 Buick LeSabre that won't start. I have a new battery and a working alternator. The lights work fine, outside and inside. When I turn the key, nothing happens. I have checked the fuses and used spare keys. The "security" light is flashing. Is this a problem with the diodes on the keys -- seems unlikely there would be a problem with multiple keys -- the wiring from the steering column or what? Thanks for your time and help. Steve
