I was told by the dealer that this happens as a result of a failing battery. I replaced the battery and it still happens on occasion.

We turn the auto light switch to manual as the solution.

Hello! I'll need the trouble code to fix your vehicle...Below is procedure with a code list...Guru...saailer

Remove the trim panels in front of the center console. Locate the engine computer attached to a floor-mounted bracket on the transmission tunnel between the console and the firewall.

  • Turn the diagnostic mode selector, located in a round opening on the side of the engine computer, until it stops. Observe the small red and green LED lights on the side of the computer next to the mode selector. They will flash to indicate the modes, with a pause between each mode. One quick flash is mode one, two quick flashes is mode two and so on. When the light flashes indicate mode three, quickly turn the mode selector counterclockwise until it stops. You have entered mode three diagnostics.

The red light flashes to indicate the "Tens" digit of the code and the green light flashes to indicate the "Ones" digit of the code. For example, if the red light flashes two times and the green light flashes seven times, this would indicate code 27.


    Turn the ignition key off for two minutes to exit diagnostics. The computer will automatically return to mode one for normal operation...

    My 1984 Buick regal back lights stop working, any suggestions on wht to and where to check?


    Hello ojuice44,

    If the bulb are good the next place to look is to check the fuses, if your turn signals work the fuse will be good. The fuse for the back-up lights is the same one for the turn signal..

    After that there are two areas to check.

    First, check for power and ground at the bulb sockets if ground is good and no power go to next step. If no ground repair the ground circuit ( See diagram below).

    Second,check for power to the gear selector switch. Check for power with the key on and engine off going into the switch on the dark blue wire (See diagram below) if no power repair that circuit. If there is power there, then with the key on and engine off put the gear selector in reverse and check for power at the light green wire if there is power there the switch is good if no power replace the switch. If you do have power at the light green wire coming out of the switch repair the light green circuit from there to the taillights.

    1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead


    When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
    With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
    Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
    **If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
    Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
    Try and start the car-anything change?
    If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
    The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
    If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

    Hope this helps.
