Buick made ABS standard on all cars in 1992 i think, but don't hold me to that. :-D But I know for a fact that the 1999 Buick Century came with ABS standard. New to 1999 though was an optional traction control, and you can't have traction control without ABS.

Ignition Lock Cylinder is locked on?

The most common cause for this happening, is the retainer cap has come loose. On these types of ignitions, there are tumblers in the cylinder. On top of these tumblers are springs. Holding all in place is a metal retainer cap which is staked in place. when the stakes are wrongly placed, not deep enough, etc., the cap will come loose. when you insert your proper key, it allows the cylinder to turn to a spot in the housing that is larger than the cylinder. Once at this spot, the cap pushes away from the cylinder and locks it into place. Once this happens, it is best to call a reputable, licensed locksmith to replace the ignition cylinder.

First, the best thing to do is go over to the parts store and pick up an ignition lock cylinder WITH KEYS. Then take off all parts of the dash that cover up your cylinder. Then look at the new one find where the little button is to push. Put the keys in the ignition, turn it to the on position (battery disconnected), push the pin in and it will come right out by pulling on the key

What do you do if the ignition starter is sticking and won't turn with the key in it?

Four reasons come to mind. Your key is too worn out to work anymore. It's the wrong key. If you have a locking steering wheel, it could be jamming the ignition cylinder... try turning the steering wheel left and right, while turning the key. Or you just need a new ignition lock cylinder.

How do you know if your key is bad 1992 Cadillac?

If the key will turn in the ignition cylinder, the only other fault the key can have is a missing or damaged resistor. The resistor is in the middle of the key and looks like a small black oval. The resistor has one of 16 specific values and is "read" by the Pass-key module. If you have a vehicle with 30K or more on the odometer that won't start, and everything else is good, (battery, starter etc…), the most likely problem is the two little wires that connect the Pass-key module to the ignition cylinder. These wires have to flex each time the cylinder is turned and eventually break at the ignition cylinder. The only reliable repair is to replace the ignition lock cylinder and key. New Ignition lock cylinders do not come with real ignition keys, only a temporary key to identify the cuts. If the cylinder is changed you have to purchase a new key separately to match the old key resistor and then cut to match the new lock cylinder.

1998 Buick Regal all dash lights flutter car doesn't crank then does Is it the computer?

It may be the ignition switch. I would unlock the ignition and try to manually start it by touching the wires together. If it starts every time. Then it's the ignition switch. The reason i say this is because my sisters 99 Buick regal had the same problem. They bought a 300 dollar ECU that wasn't even coded to their cars system and then they come to find out that it was a simple ignition problem after they had checked online for people with similar issues. .

How do you change the ignition lock cylinder on your 2003 Dodge Durango?

Are you sure the key is inserted in all the way, try it with a different key. Make sure the wheels are not turned either fully to the right or left. You may have to remove the panels around the ignition cylinder to see if anything is restricting the cylinder from turning all the way. I know normally you must put it in the run position in order to be able to remove the cylinder but, have you tried removing it while it was in the locked position. You might be able to press the cylinder lock pin with it in the lock position. It could be that a tumbler has come loose and jammed cylinder.
