#45 of 54 Buick Le Sabre power steering pump help
Jan 09, 2008 (6:41 am)
I have a 1998 Buick Le Sabre. I cant find the reservoir to put the power steering fluid in. I have had 5 people look at it and cant find it either. Can someone please tell me where to put the power steering fluid?

See if this helps. Lean over the side of the car right next to the strut tower on the right side. Look straight down. This picture will show you the landmarks. Directly below the alternator is a cap with orange lettering... It seldom needs checking, so it's not too bad that it's hard to reach.
#47 of 54 Charging battery with solar charger...
Jan 19, 2008 (4:48 pm)
Hi to All...new to forum. I purchased a Battery Saver Plus for my 1989 Buick Le Sabre, but unfortunately the plug wouldn't fit into the lighter socket and I had to recharge it at my local gas station. Thus my alternative, according to www.4lots.com, is to "...attach the [solar] panel directly to the battery. This may be done by: A) Cutting off the cigarette lighter attachment and attaching the stripped wires directly to the battery, Negative to Negative (Black to Black) and Positive to Positive."
First question: is this risky? And if not, do I simply loop each wire around the terminal, starting with the negative one? Thanks in advance.

No great risk but I'm not fond of having any loose wire that can create a spark near a battery. I'd much rather see you put alligator clips or large spring clamps on each wire, then tape the clips with electrical tape so that they are somewhat insulated. This way, you can just clamp the solar charger on there safely.
Of course, a solar panel is to maintain the charge on a charged battery, not to charge up a dead one. Seems like you know that already.

Thanks Mr. Shiftright. Excellent advice. I received similar advice on another forum.

I HAVE WENT THROUGH 3 BATTERIES IN THE LAST 4 MONTHS. I TOOK THEM BACK TO WALMART AND THEY EXCHANGED IT ALL THREE TIMES.
I'M WONDERING IF THE CAR IS KILLING THE BATTERIES AND IF SO WHAT COULD BE CAUSING IT.
#53 of 54 1995 buick le sabre died cant start wont even crank
Jun 17, 2008 (8:42 am)
i back out of the drive way and started driving it it then died.i tryed to start it again but nothing happened it wont even turn over. i tryed a jumper cables and a different battery. it has a new starter and the battery was a new one. when i turn the key the lights turn on on the dash but thats it nothing else happens it dosent even crank. is this a security system problem with the key or is there a fuse problem. but what would cause it to die when driving and then not being able to start again

My aunt's 2000 LeSabre has the exact same problem except very infrequent. No codes, only at low speeds, and two mechanics have been unable to replicate the problem over three weeks of trying.
Did you ever get an answer? Thanks for any help you can give.
