- Buick Ownership
Hey im new here ive had an 85 buick skylark for about 2 weeks its been sitting for 2 years i was told. who knows could be longer. Anyway when i turn the key to start nothing happens. I have replaced ignition switch plugs wires and battery. Still nothing no cranking when i turn the key. So i bypassed the ignition running a wire from starter to battery and the engine would turn but was also not getting any spark. So i decided to put a new ignition coil on and was almost positive that would work but still nothing. Only now the new ignition coil started smoking and the insides melted out. Can anyone help? What could cause this?
