No Spark?

Sorry about that, I guess I said the wrong thing, I'm not getting power to the ignition fuse. The (15A) one. I have included the picture of my actual fuse box with the correct fuse that is not getting power. I hope that helps.

The fuse box is shaped differently that what I show in the manual. However, if that fuse isn't getting power, are the ones around it?

I don't know if you ever replaced a breaker in the electrical box at your home, but the same principal applies. You have a steel power bar that always has power. When you put the breaker in the box, it contacts that bar and then you can control the power to different circuits in the house based on amperage. The same idea with the fuse box in the car. That box has a connector that has power from the battery at all times. The fuse takes the power from that supply and transfers it to another pin for a specific circuit. If the fuses near it have power, it should as well.

Let me know. I hope my analogy made sense. I'm really trying here. LOL

So are you trying to ask me to check the other fuses around it? So here's how I can answer your question: when I check my test light to see if I have a good ground I usually test the side of the fuse box (positive cable), and the three fuses (empty slots) next to the ignition, cruise, and vent. Not sure if you're asking to check to see if the harness is getting power or not? Wait. I just got it. I finally understand. Let me try this: are you asking if I'm getting power to connector C1? I've included a picture. So I got no power to 27 but I have power to 28. Hope that helps.

Hi,

Yep, you got it. Now this is what doesn't make sense. If you have power to 28 and not 27, there has to be either a pin pushed in, a wire not making contact, or the box is bad (which at this point doesn't make sense to me).

Joe

PS: I'm sorry to make this so confusing. It is much easier when the part is in front of me. LOL

Yeah, wouldn't make sense to me either, so I'm going to try to do a more in depth check on this. I haven't been able to do too much because I'm doing a water pump on an Acura (a whole headache), but I will be able to do more tomorrow. I just know there is something I'm not getting correct. I wonder if the wires going to the connector are messed up somehow. However, I checked that pink wire and the green/white wire the other day and got no power to both of them. Now here's a theory, would I have these problems if the connector isn't pushed in all the way?

Also you're not confusing at all. I'm the one that's confusing I'm sure. There is something that I'm not getting. That's for sure.

You are not at all confusing. We are both learning together at this point simply because it isn't making sense to either of us. If the pins are pushed out, then the fuse may not be making a connection and completing the circuit. Is that what you mean? If so, yes, that is very possible.

Bear with me here, I've ordered a already programmed pcm from Flagship one. I believe that's the problem.

Okay, so I got a whole bunch of questions. Now I just got a new scanner today and got to use my new toy, it's called the ThinkDiag. Pretty good scanner (even though I have no idea what these numbers mean. So I looked up my security status (because a mechanic suggested it might be security) and I got this.(Picture included) help please!

The second code you provided indicates the PCM is bad. Take a look at the attached pic. It is the diagnostics for this code (B1009). I feel bad saying this, but contact the local Buick dealer and see if you can purchase just the eeprom. Either way, the eeprom or PCM will require programming.

I wish I had better news.

Let me know if you have other questions or if I can help.

Yeah, I kind of figured that a while ago. There were too many problems. When I did the scan it said I had a code P0481 for a bad cooling fan number 2 and 3. Plus the fact that things kept going out one after another. Now what is this EEPROM you speak of? Remember I ordered a new computer like two weeks ago. However after reading lots of BBB complaints, I doubt I'll be getting that unit anytime soon.

Hi,

You look like a young man in your picture attached, so the easiest thing to compare it to is the RAM memory in your computer. EEPROM stands for electronically erasable programmable read only memory. In your vehicle, it is a permanent memory that is physically part of the control module. The EEPROM contains program and calibration information that the power-train control module (PCM) needs in order to control the powertrain operation.

Special equipment, as well as the correct program and calibration for the vehicle, are required in order to reprogram the control module.

I have to be honest, I'm not sure if the EEPROM is even available for your vehicle separately.

I hope that makes sense.

Well I've ordered a new PCM that's scheduled to be here Wednesday. Hopefully that will be the answer.

Okay. So, here's the deal:Changed the PCM lights come on now. Still no start. No fuel pump at all. Think diag says the fuel system is still disabled. There is an issue with my security system that I can't seem to fix. It's right under my nose. There's a gentleman named Mike eyecanfixthat on YouTube that had a very interesting video on a 2006 Buick. He said the guy changed the PCM multiple times and has the same issue. He hooked it up to a computer and now disabled the anti theft. Wondering how I can do that.

When you crank the car over is the security light flashing? if so this guide will help you reset it:
