You need to proof read your problem, confusing. Motor turning over and one starting are different. Is the remote factory? If not you need to disconnect the power to it and try again.

Car makes a weezing sound, turns over, but wont start

Yes, this sounds like your starter is begining to go out. What will happen as this problem continues to progress: is that when you go to start the car you will have to try 2, then 3 then 4 times for the starter to finally engauge. Then if you pray really hard when it gets to the 5th time it might start. The noise you hear is the bendix drive not engauging the flywheel.

89 Buick Lesabre wont start - it is not the battery - Is it the starter of a bad chip in the key. Is there a way to tell?

1989 buicks did not have a chip in keys. get someone to use a remote strter switch(which you can buy at a parts store). follow instructions. if it doesn't start; try there.

1999 Buick regal Security light on. Won't start.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.
