#134 of 354 2001 buick regal LS- Electrical issues??
Jan 27, 2008 (12:52 pm)
Not sure whats going on, i think it might be the PASS Key security system?!
Here's the deal:
Check engine light came on while driving. Turned car off when i got home. Then it wouldn't start again. Put the key in the ignition, turned forward, wouldn't turn over, no sound at all! No lights, radio, locks dont work, no power at all! Its not the battery or starter. And ignition will not turn back to farthest back position so i cant even get my key out! ANY suggestions would help! Thanks

Water leak on passenger side is probably the rubber gasket by the passenger compartment air filter. I had the same issue and it ruined my blower. The gasket tends to fall out of position. It is under the hood on the passenger side beneath the plastic cover under the p/s windshield wiper.
#136 of 354 Most Dash Lights Out
Jan 29, 2008 (1:11 pm)
I have a 2000 Buick Regal GS and most of my dash lights and radio lights won't work. Problem started with the light on the odometer. Now the only lights that work are on the display for the oil life, mileage, and idiot lights. Any ideas on how to tear down the dash to replace the lights?

How did you get the dash apart to take out the light switch?
#138 of 354 01 Buick Regal Dashboard
Feb 02, 2008 (9:57 pm)
Hey all. Just found this forum on Google. Hope you don't mind the noobie post. I've got another dashboard light problem.
I've got an '01 Regal and the backlit dashboard only lights up occasionally. Sometimes if I play with the headlamp control nob that'll turn it on for awhile. But it always turns off eventually. I've talked to mechanics and car parts store guys about it and I've gotten a dozen possibilities.
One said it might just be a fuse. Another said there was probably a wiring problem within the dash and it would most likely have to be replaced.
#139 of 354 Re: 99' Buick Regal ABS, Check Engine, and Trac Off light malfunction
Feb 09, 2008 (5:35 pm)
I have the exact same issue in my 99' Buick Regal. ABS, Check Engine, and Trac Off all come on at the same time. This occurs periodically, such as when hitting bumps driving, but they disappear when I turn the car off and back on.
I have had electrical issues with this car before including multiple blown (light related) fuses and blown light bulbs (with melted plastic). I believe there is some sort of short in the system. Unfortunately, pinpointing where is the hard part. This may also lead to a problem with the main computer module. At this point, I am unsure and would appreciate any advice. Thanks, Dan

SO #1 am/fm stations dont hold on radio more like constant fuzz
#2 no lights/no running/just died in driveway and key wont come out or go back/not battery/not altenator.
