#181 of 354 Dim Headlights
Nov 03, 2008 (12:12 pm)
I have a 1998 Buick Regal and the headlights are very dim. When I checked on internet I found a couple of recalls but the only thing they did was send a supplement to the manual telling you how to readjust the head lamp. My husband said when he looked at the headlamp the inside plastic was cloudy. Has anyone had this problem? There was also listed a recall regarding rack and pinion steering. How long are these recalls valid? And does the recall cover a used car?

Should still be covered under recall. I had my front lights (99 Regal) replaced under recall about 3 years ago. I am the second owner of said vehicle. There is a product out there that can remove headlight cloudiness if that is the problem.
#184 of 354 indicator lights going crazy
Nov 10, 2008 (8:30 pm)
i have a 97 Buick Regal LS which was given to me, so i dont know its history. But ive had it for about a month now and just within the past week my battery, anti-lock, oil, brake, and low track indicator lights have been going on whenever they feel like it! Mainly the battery light. Ive had my battery and alternator tested. no problem there. i checked for loose wires, the battery terminals and the brakes themselves. Im confused and was wondering if this was something serious or if its just a quick fix i could possibly do myself before going to a shop... any ideas?

Could be the sensors going bad for those particular items.... or a loose connection. The coolant level sensor went bad in my 99 Regal LS. The coolant level light has been on for about 6 months now... hopefully it will burn itself out shortly.
OR, YOUR CAR COULD BE POSSESSED BY DEMONIC SPIRITS....

My 1998 buick regal is having an electrical problem, the head lights turn off, the fan stops working, also the interoir lights dim, cruise control shuts off, main dash board light flickers.
I have checked the battery and the grounds and haven't ffound any problems.

A Switch Doctor?

its a switch? I was driving today and ALL the indicator lights went on, and odometer/ clock started flickering. then my car seized up and died while i was driving... took 20 minutes before i could start it again and drive home with the hazards on at least. could this be the ignition or just electrical problems just in the dash?

Seadog - Did you find the solution to your dash lights? I have a 2000 Century that the dash lights went out. The fuses and dimmer check out OK. The tail lights and head lights work fine. Any help is appreciated.
