Check battery for condition including load test if you have another key try that not a new key it may be a bad key setting off anti theft.

Here is a guide that will help

Have you checked to determine if there is both spark and fuel getting to the engine? Simple trick. See if it will start for a few seconds using starting fluid. If it does, there is a fuel problem. If it fails to start, then you have an ignition problem. At least that will help point you in the right direction.

One other thought. Since it has the OBD2 system, if you can get your hands on a scanner, check to see if there is a signal from the crank sensor. That can cause the same issues if it's bad.

Hi,
Just replaced the timing chain, sprokets, magnet, camshaft sensor. Car will now crank but stops running after a few seconds. Everything was done following the instructions in my Haynes book for my car.
What do I do now?
Thanks in advance,
Dave

Check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump. If the fuel system is okay-

Check the mass airflow sensor, idle air control valve and throttle position sensor-

All three check out ok. I cranked the motor and left the starter running and as soon as let the key go back to the on position, the engine shut down making me think it is an electrical problem within in the ignition switch. Does this sound right?
Thanks,
Dave

Sounds like the ignition circuit of the ignition switch is gone. What's powering it is the start circuit once you let go-it will die out No power to coil.

another thing to ck is your crank sensor, and I believe its in your front crank pully, since you did all that work in that place of orgin

I adjusted the ignition switch module (the rectangular box where the rod comes down from the locking cylinder) and the car started and ran perfectly. Thanks for all your help. I'm new at doing major jobs on my car. This was my first time for anything this big.
Thanks again,
Dave

The first step is to read and record any diagnostic fault codes. Check this page for the procedure:

http://www.2carpros.com/articles/buick-cadillac-chevy-gmc-oldsmobile-pontiac-gm-1983-1995-obd1-code-definitions-and-retrieval-method

Check the fresh air tube between the mass air flow sensor and throttle body to be sure there's no leaks or loose hose clamps, and check the vacuum hoses and other signs of a vacuum leak. If there aren't any fault codes, the next step is to connect a scanner so you can view live data. That usually takes an experienced engine performance mechanic to interpret, but you can look at the sensor data to see if anything is obviously wrong.

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.

Engine Performance problem
1989 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 77000 miles

My Lesabre stalls after running for about 10 minutes maybe more. It mostly happens when at an idle or slow speed. It has happened on the expressway also, though when maintaining a constant speed and rpm.

I checked the fuel pressure and it was exactly within specs. The check engine light said the code was for a bad crank position sensor. I replaced the sensor. Next code that came up said it was the ignition control module. I replaced that and the coil pack. The car continues to stall but now it stalls somewhat slowly where before it would just stop.

I have also replaced the cam position sensor and had the catalytic converter checked to see if it is plugged.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just another suggestion
clean throttle plate and body
clean idle air control valve
disconnect battery and reconnect start and let it idle for few minutes and than take it for a ride
hope this help if not done it already
good luck

I cleaned the valve and throttle body but the problem still persists. I was able to get a new code 027 which is the quad driver module (2nd gear). How would I test what caused the fault? I don't want to put a new ecm in and have it happen again
