#109 of 354 Re: ignition switch [louis68]
Sep 14, 2007 (4:40 pm)
I resolved this problem in my 2000 Regal by removing the plastic plug next to the shifter on the console and spraying a fair amount of WD-40 straight down onto whatever linkage is there. This is pretty far from the key in the steering column, but I read a post on a Regal GS site that this cured the problem of a spilled coke in the not-waterproof boot around the shifter. This is also a wintertime fix for me after traveling on freezing slushy roads when I can't pull the key out of the ignition. Love that WD-40. Hate that Buick design. Otherwise, really like my Regal.
#110 of 354 Remote door lock sensor location

Can someone tell me where the remote door lock sensor is located on a 2000 Buick Regal? I believe this is my problem and want to check it out. Thanks.

Recently, the remote for my 2000 Regal LS has been acting up. The button to unlock has to be pressed several times in order to unlock the car, and the button to lock it sometimes won't work at all. Replaced the battery in the remote and that helped for about an hour and then the remote started having the same problem. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

Hello-I noticed your question on this forum and I need to replace the tensioner on my 1996 Buick Regal-I have changed tensioner's before on other vehicles and it's been very easy-are there more parts that have to come off in order to get the tensioner off on the Buick?? I'm sorry I can't help with your question-do not know much about this Buick!!!
Thanks in advance for any responses to my question!!

I am looking at a 2000 buick regal LS and am having the same problem. Does anyone know if the digital odometer is 5 or 6 digits? It states that there is only 47k miles on it but I think the interior shows more miles of wear.
#115 of 354 1995 Buick Regal GS interior light electrical problem
Oct 10, 2007 (1:51 pm)
I recently had to replace the driver's side door lever/handle and soon after I noticed that the interior lights did not turn off when the car was on and the automatic locks did not lock when in drive. I don't know if there is some kind of ground issue, but it seems like the car cannot tell that the door is shut, which doesn't allow the interior lights to turn off and the automatic locks to trigger when in drive.
#117 of 354 Head lights
Oct 17, 2007 (10:35 am)
My wife has a 2000 buick regal.
I was reading about the water leak in the passanger side, and we have the same problem. I am looking into that, but if anything was found out that would be helpful
Problem right now is the head lights arn't coming on. I cover the sensor and the other lights come on, but not the head lights. If I manually put on the lights it is the same thing. If I pull the lever to switch between hi and low beam there is no click but I get the lights to come on as long as I hold the lever. They say this is for flashing to pass. I would like to know before I tear apart the steering column to replace the switch or if someone else has had this problem and there is an easier fix.
#118 of 354 Dashboard Lights
Nov 05, 2007 (8:48 am)
Please help me figure what is wrong with my dashboard lights. They come on in the day time, can see the clock, the temp, etc., but when the car recognizes it is evening, it switches to lighten up those panels brighter, my Buick clicks off, and I cannot see my speedometer (not digital) and the clock and temperature and fan controls are not illumninated fully. I have taken it in so many times and spent hundreds of dollars to find mechanics who cannot find the "electrical" problem. This has been happening for a year, and it has worked and illuminated at night approx 4 times, for about 10 min or so...Any ideas? Thanx
