The contact owns a 2014 Buick Lacrosse. On several occasions, the contact applied the brake pedal to engage the push button start, but there was no response. The dealer was unable to replicate the failure. A second dealer indicated that they replaced the key fob battery, but the repair was not a solution to prevent the failure. The manufacturer provided no repair solution. The contact had no remedy from the manufacturer pertaining to the brake system with the push button start feature. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 26,000....updated 06/14/17

My wife was driving our 2014 Buick Lacrosse on the interstate at ~65 mph when the electrical power steering suddenly quit working- almost causing her to crash. A service power steering and service stabilitrak message is now displayed in the information center. A ABS and traction control light is also now on.

During driving the vehicle at @65 miles per hour in traffic the vehicle will drop battery power and dash board goes blank and car shuts off and in less than 1 minute all electrical to dash and engine will come back on. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times in last 90 days and they cant find the problem.

Was driving the vehicle at a fairly lower speed. (35 mph). Was utilizing the cruise control, moved my right leg, and due to the positioning of the ignition, my leg bumped the keys slightly, which caused the key to turn into the position where the vehicle was no longer running. Upon noticing that the engine had stopped running, was still successfully able to place the car into neutral and restart the vehicle without causing an accident- however, had I been driving at a higher rate of speed, this could have been catastrophic.

The instrument panel went blank for at least 10 seconds before resetting as though the car restarted, while driving on I95 at a speed of 65-70 mph. The car did not stall.
