2000 Buick Lesabre wont crank when hot outside? Sign In

2000 Buick LeSabre Custom 3.8L 90,000Miles

When I try to start my car when it is hot outside it will not crank. I have to keep trying until the ignition engages. Sometimes I have to shake the car, close the door several times or pound on the steering wheel and then it will crank over. Had this issue last summer then it stopped happening all fall and winter. Now the problem is happening again.

When this condition happens, the windows will not work, radio quits. Brake Pedal makes a clicking sound. Heater controls still work. Power lock will not work.

Once started the condition will continue off and on at random. The car will remain running but some indicator lights on the dash will turn off some will turn on radio will turn off and on with the condition but the car continues to run.

You're going to have to check all the power supplies under the hood at both the battery and the fuse box. It sounds like a major supply wire has a bad connection somewhere.
