I have a 2000 lesabre as well. Indeed a good car. I have replaced every window motor in my car and I have replaced the drivers side one twice. The first one I paid $450.00 at the dealership. Now you can get them at www.powerupauto.com for about $65.00. They usually charge me about $30.00 to install at the dealership body shop. Other than the window motor problems the car has been solid. I have 175,000 miles on mine and it steal runs great.

hello to wesconjr. and thanks for the info. when you say dealership body shop fixed it cheaper for you, what dealership body shop? different than the first dealership you paid the $450.00? if i could get it done at the discounted price, that'd be great. any feedback helpful.

I am unable to get a scanner to link up with my '95 lesabre. When i try to plug my obd11 scanner up i get a message it is unable to connect with the computer. the scanner works with my other vehicle so i know it is good. Has anyone got an idea on correcting this prob.

That must be one of the crossover years where the connector is OBD II but the link is OBD I. It requires an adapter.

Thank you for your reply. What kind of adapter and where can I get one?

I have a 2000 la sabre limited, 170,000 miles. Great running car. With the rear windows, you can hear the motors run but nothing happens with the windows. Is this the regulator, cable, or what? Also, how difficult to fix? Additionally, my steering wheel lights do not work. I can get the switches out of the steering wheel but the lights look like little blue LED lights that are soldered to a little circut board.

Lately when I start the car I have been getting a CHECK ENGINE light that stays on. I then shut it off and on again and the Light turns off. Also once in awhile the car shuts off for no reason when driving down the road. To restart it, it sometimes takes 15 times of turning the key on and off, almost like the fuel pump is told not to turn on.
We put it on a machine and got 2 codes:
P1361- Ignition Control Signal Not Toggling
We are pointing toward Replacing the Ignition Control Module.
Does anyone have any ideas or imput?

When you go to restart, what does the Security light on the dash do. It should come on when you turn the key to "on" and then go off after about 5 seconds. It should not be flashing.
When you turn the key is the car cranking? Is that what you mean by it's not getting gas from the fuel pump?
I've read posts in another discussion by people chasing problems like this. The crankshaft position sensor seems to not give a clear code or sign. For your Ignition Control Module is it getting spark? If it quits and you can remove a spark plug wire to determine it's NOT giving spark would be a great help. Don't just toss on parts. Diagnose (I know, easy for me to say).
The shutting off while running sounds like it _might_ be crankshaft position sensor of camshaft sensor. If the crankshaft sensor gives a problem it _sometimes_ is heat related. Are you in a hot climate? is the car hot when this happens?
People in another discussion have mentioned putting cold water on the crankshaft position sensor (it sits just behind the flywheel and you can throw cold water from a cup on it they've said). Cooling it sometimes gets it back to sensing the timing pieces as they go by.
How many miles on car?
