#340 of 349 2001 Regal: fast warning chime & no parking or dash lights
Jun 24, 2012 (12:02 pm)
I was tooling down the highway changing lanes to pass a slower vehicle when there in my path was a whole torn off retread. I was able to straddle the tire but I felt it wacking the undercarriage. When I stopped I looked under the car to see if there was any obvious damage but saw no obvious damage.
2 days later I was driving in a heavy rain storm. That night I noticed I had no dash lights & no parking lights. The parking light fuse was blown. I replaced it & it blew again so I tried upgrading to a 20 amp from a 15 amp so I could troubleshoot looking for a damaged wire.
I had no luck finding a damaged wire. The next day when I opened the driver door I had a fast warning chime. When I put the key in the warning chime slowed to the normal & stopped when I closed the door.
Any ideas out about what the fast warning chime means with no dash nor parking lights?

Did they all go out at once or was it at seperate times? I knnow there is a fix on youtube on how to fix the odomoter by just soldering on new resistors which I had to do.

Yep, sounds like the resistors need replacing. Mine came completely loose and fell out eventually for the odometer.
Here is the fix: Youtube video

Hi Gary81, did you resolve the issue with the key not coming out of the ignition? I replaced my ignition switch which solved the problem of the car shutting off while driving, but the key still sticks in the freaking ignition. It may go several weeks without doing it, then for several weeks it will do it again. Any luck?

Thank you for sharing! I've been going crazy trying to get the Air Bag light to turn off before my inspection. Looked under the seat and there was a travel mug pressing on the plugs! Many thanks! What a quick, easy fix
#348 of 349 2004 Buick Regal dash light short
Mar 02, 2013 (7:23 pm)
For some time the instrumet panel lights would not immediately come on when you started the car. After driving a short distance you would hear a click and they would all come on. Recently the dash lights went out but all other lights worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. I replaced it and turned on the ignition and it immediately blew again. Any suggestions wheer I should start looking?
