Im have the excat same problem tell me some found the reason why. Thanks for the help.
Lesabre no instrument lights and won't start
I have a 1996 Buick
LeSabre. Wife was stranded at a trailhead parking lot thinking battery was dead. Upon arrival, tried to jump it but will not crank. Turning key to run allows the radio, blower, etc. to work but, NO lights on light strip across dash (ABS, CHECK ENGINE, etc.) and the gauges do not move (battery, water, oil, etc.). No solenoid clicking on starter. Checked all fuses and all are OK. Thought security
issue but, cannot see the security
light since I believe it is on the strip of lights that will not light. Had battery tested and cleaned/checked battery connections. HELP!!!
