You might check the connections to the ISC which is the unit under the three coils. The contacts occasionally don't (CONTACT) and then restart.
I just read another problem car with some miles that would die after running for a while because the fuel pump was heating up and not working right. The description was that it would start right back up. I assume that's because it cools quickly when it's not running. My suspiction was that it was a contact problem but either way the fuel pump fixed it. The only added part was that it sometimes would act like you were trying to give too much fuel. That was due to reduced pressure affecting the spray pattern of the injectors when the throttle body was opened up.
The one thing missing is yours seems to quit right now. No sputter. No poor running. Just quits.
A CPS, crankshaft position sensor, often gives trouble restarting. Cooling them with a splash of water onto the sensor at the edge of the crankshaft balancer will sometimes speed up the restart. But others have had problems and the car restarts right away.
Myself I would look carefully at the contacts on the Ignition spark control. The ground wire is black if I recall the post.

The drivers door on my "91" Park Ave will not lock from the inside or outside.
Anybody have/had this problem?

Re post 183.
The coil pack on mine was the problem. Runs great now.

How can I reset the anti theft device in my 1992 Buick Park Avenue?

can they be reset? Maybe by disconnecting the battery for a good while to completely clear the computer of current memory. Be sure to turn off the HVAC before you disconnect it.
What is the symptom?
#188 of 463 rear bumper assembly for '96 p.a ultra
Sep 27, 2008 (5:29 am)
Hello I am in a world of hurt. Recently I was rear ended and my bumper assembly collapsed because the energy bars and upper and lower impact bars were rusted. Fortunately all the damage to my vehicle was confined to the bumper area and did not damage the quarter panels or frame. The problem is when I took my car to the repair shop they say they cannot find any replacement parts for the car. GM has stopped making the rear bumper cover (the plastic wrap around assembly). I believe the repair shop because I did a search myself and came up empty also. Does anyone know of any place where I may find what I am looking for.
upper and lower impact bars
right and left energy absorbers
lower bumper cover support
This car is in great shape both mechanically as well as inside and out to be just written off as a loss The engine and transmission are in great running condition.
thank-you for any info you may have vanman391

I'm not clear about what you're saying.
You are saying your fan for the heater inside and AC air is blowing just fine.
You are saying that the fans behind the radiator do NOT come on when the AC is turned on.
Am I right?
If so I believe there are two relays in the Relay Center that handle this. Give me some time. I have a 93 LeSabre/Park Avenue factory service manual.
If I'm not understanding, try explaining to me again.
