Best Answer

Once you have proved that the battery is in good condition, you should then check the starter solonoid to determine if it is working. It triggers the bendix spring in the starter shaft gear so that it in turn engages the flywheel and makes the engine turn over. You should hear a positive click ( you will need someone to engage the ignition key while you are listening under the hood). If the starter fails to engage even though you are certain the solonoid and Bendix spring are working, or if the starter engages but is "dragging", you could have a defective starter. More than likely, this is the case, and it is best to have it removed and replaced with a new or rebuilt starter from your parts resource. Again, before you give up, make sure your battery is not the culprit.

What causes a 1993 buick lesabre not to start after replacing the starter?

My suggestion is to make sure that you have a good connection between your starter and your battery. Is the starter even functioning? If not, it is probably a bad starter, a bad battery, a bad fusible link for the starter, a blown fuse, or just a bad connection.
