#87 of 354 Right front turn signal issues on 2000 Regal
Apr 01, 2007 (12:44 pm)
I have a 2000 Buick Regal with 104k miles on it that has performed very well for us. However we have been having an intermittent problem with the right front turn signal which seems to have become permanent. I spent a good part of yesterday trouble shooting this issue without success. The flasher blinks rapidly and the front light does not burn but the rear light does. The daytime running light goes out as it is supposed to. It seems to be getting the same voltage to the plug as the left side. I switched the whole socket unit from the right to the left side and the problem remained on the right side. Any ideas? I'm thinking it could either be a fault in the flasher or the controller in the steering column. Thanks for any help! Tommy

I have a 2000 Regal LS many miles and had the dash lighting problem you describe. Isolated it to the headlight switch. When I did get it out, found burn marks around pin J gray wire although they aren't marked. Took old switch apart, thought it was burned. Gunk had formed on a contact in the switch causing the problem. Kind of trickey to disassemble be careful of two spring loaded detent parts. I blew it. Might have been salvageable. Obtained new switch from diyautoparts.com for $67. no shipping as compared to $112 from dealer plus tax. Problem fixed. Good luck

I have a 2000 Buick Regal LS. About once or twice per day for the last 2-3 weeks, the car will completely shut off while I am driving it. On my way home from work last night it did it in the middle of traffic on the 10. The stereo and what not will stay on, but the meters on the dash go to zero and most of the dashboard lights come on. What should I do?

I'd get it looked at asap. By the time you get a knowledgeable answer in this discussion, it may be to late.
#91 of 354 two minor electrical problems...
May 01, 2007 (12:14 pm)
I recently picked up a 1999 Regal LS with just over 104,000 miles. Took the keyless remote to the local Buick dealer in town, as it works on the doors and emergency button, but won't open the trunk (trunk opens fine with key). Testing reveals that the remote is indeed sending a signal. Before bringing the car in, any clues where to look? Also, in the past week, the passenger rear window won't open with the switch on the door itself or the driver's control. Again, any clues? By the way, the door has never been damaged.

Thump the passenger rear window area near the switch a couple times with your knuckles. As scientific as that sounds, it worked on my 1999 Regal LS with 77,000 miles. I'd also flange out the window grooves so the window can operate smoother.

Here is your too late, knowledgeable answer - ignition switch. I had all sorts of strange problems on my '99 GS; engine shut down when put blinker on, airbag light that would not shut off, other dash lights not shutting off and finally the car would not start. On my mechanics recommendation I had a Buick dealership do the replacement work. Since the replacement, I have not had any problems.

Thanks. That is exactly what it turned out to be. I went out to run errands not long after I posted the original message, and the car wouldn't start at all. I ended up having it towed to a chevrolet dealership who replaced the switch and haven't had any problems since then. Anyone with a similar problem, I recommend having it fixed as soon as possible.
#95 of 354 Buick Regal power locks
Jun 06, 2007 (9:33 am)
I recently changed the driver side power window regulator and motor. Now my power locks will not lock by switches or remote. They will unlock onthe remote all four doors.
there is no attempt to lock on any switch or the remote. Do you have any suggestion.
#96 of 354 Buick Regal Electrical System Odometer Doesn't Work
Jun 26, 2007 (5:04 pm)
My odometer, transmission setting display along with the speedometer doesn't work. The odometer display is lit but it doesn't change or display the correct mileage. Same is true for transmission display- doesn't change always set on "D". I've replaced the cluster panel with a re-built one but same issue. Any suggestions?
