Thanks for writing in about your 1994 Buick Roadmaster. There are many things that can cause a no start condition. You may want to have this thoroughly looked at in person by a professional before moving forward with any other repairs. Some basics in the charging or ignition systems may have been overlooked in this case. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your car's location to pinpoint the cause of the no start and help you have this repaired correctly.
