Yeah thanks for the reply...I fixed that a few weeks back....
I took the whole car almost appart to find out previous owner did some shabby electrical ....He cut the radio wires to install subs and amp in back to factory radio...ALso installed his own python alarm system ...THESE ARE THE last problems I have if you can help....He shorted out the odometer so it now reads 388K when its a 98 with 122k I found a place in florida 125$ to reset ...they say there is a device that kept track and will still have that number..
MY radio wont hold a station...SOME days it will hold a radio station for 5 mins sometimes it will for 1 hr sometimes it wont hold any stations including am..I checked the am/fm antenna amplifier in the HEAD LINER back seat and it is good...What do u think this kid did? I am trying to fix so I can sell this NIGHTMARE!!!!! thanks again....

Did you ever find out what the problem was? I have a 2003 Buick Regal that is doing the same thing. Only mine is doing it now as soon as you start the car and you can even but it in gear because it won't stay running the engine lunges and then dies.

I don't know about odometer,however about the radio not holding a station I think that someone cut into your radio memory wire.This wire is usually orange or orange with white stripe.No other wires should be spliced into this wire as it always carries voltage as long as the battery is connected.If this is not the correct color wire,leave key off and test other wires with volt meter or test light & you should find it.Hope this will be some help.

My climate control is putting out hot and cold air with no regard for selections. I have tried high,low temp;dual,no dual;recycle;manual - all to no avail. Anyone ever have this problem or know solution?
Thanks for any help.
#153 of 354 Elec Prbs 1993 Buick Regal w/ tilt steering

I bought a 1993 Buick Regal with 47K miles it now has 57K. The other day I turned the started the car and a small amount of smoke started coming from the crack where the steering wheel tilts. I am now in the process of taking the steering column apart to look for a pinched or melted wire. The smoke was about like you get when you snuff out a wooden match, but it was steady. Everything seems to be ok for now, but something is cooking. Anyone have this problem before?

Add to 153. I took steering wheel apart and ckd wiring harness running underneath steering column. No bare spots or pinched wires. Several relays along with ignition switch is attache to top of steering column. I did not take any of these out. Drove car over weekend and no problem.

I have a 92 Buick Regal and a couple years ago I have the same problem of smoke coming from the steering wheel and the smell of an electrical short right after starting the car. For me the problem was in the turn signal switch, just behind the steering wheel. A couple of the contacts shorted causing the smoke and eventually the lose of bake lights on the rear passenger side. I just replaced the signal switch and was back in business. Hope that helps pdykes.
