My car is a 1991 buick park avenue 3800 engine. You can crank my car from the stater but you can not crank it with the key. My key has a cip in it. So I would like to know if the key or the switch or is both bad and how can I check to see. Can some please help me
The keyless entry has no chip inside of it. Check the switch to the starter. I have the same engine. Do you have an after market security system?

I just fixed a car problem just like it.I would first take the key to the dealership and have it tested. They have a machine they insert the key into to see if the chip in the key is good. If the key is good I would install a ney key and tumbler. There are two wires coming out of it and go to a connector under the dash. After fifteen years the wires will break.
