1996 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Automatic 183000 miles
While I'm driving, suddenly everything locks up, I cannot move the steering wheel unless I force it, pressing on the gas does absolutely nothing. The "VOLT" light and the "OIL" light come on, as has the "TEMP" light on a few occasions. It seems if I pull over, turn off the engine, and restart it immediately, it restarts fine. On one occasion, it did this, but I was no longer able to restart it. I got it towed to a garage, where they changed the battery and said that was the problem. I asked about the alternator but he said it wasn't that. It ran fine after that, but as I got closer to home it died again.
It's been doing this at random times ever since, which as you can imagine is very dangerous and stressful for me. People have said that it might be an electrical problem. The price of repairs will probably influence my actions with this vehicle, I don't have a lot of money to fix it.
have the same problem?
