#91 of 349 two minor electrical problems...
May 01, 2007 (1:14 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 349 Buick Regal power locks

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 349 Buick Regal Electrical System Odometer Doesn't Work
Jun 26, 2007 (6:04 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?

Yea, replacing the ignition switch eliminated same problem I had - which was when I used my turn signal (left or right), the engine would completely turn off by itself.
