Possibly ignition switch issue, remove the lock cylinder and manually jump the wires, if that works, replace the switch

Buick Century 2000 gear shifter moves freely will not start


Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

1999 Buick Regal GS gear shift knob button is stuck to release


Check in your fuse panel. The top first row and the first fuse. I took that fuse out and had the same problem. My gear shift button was stuck. I put the fuse back in and it worked.

I have a 2003 Buick Regal LX -After I start the car, the button to my gear shift is stuck and I cannot get car into gear? Do you know why this may be?


It could be the park safety that works off of your brake switch , may need to be replaced , it is under the dash hooks to brake lever, don't know if you can adjust it or just hook it back up try holding more pressure on brake , please let us know what happens , Thank You .

This car has a lock out device as all vehicles have. You need to depress the brake firmly to shift into gear as you may know. The solenoid that retracts the lock out for the shifting is at fault and needs to be replaced. You will see it if you remove the entire top of the shifting console

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

87' buick regal


I am assuming you have the 200 4R, I just replaced my tranny fluid on my 87 GN, took about 6.4 quarts. I also have an external tranny cooler and let the tranny drain for about a week.

I would start with 4 quarts and start her up, dont drive anywhere. Keep adding and checking while the car warms up. Every now and then get in and shift through the gears, pausing in each one a few times, ALL GEARS. When the fluid level refisters on the dipstick, take the car around the block slowly at first then fast enough to shift into 2nd, depending on factors 3rd or 4th. Head home and leave engine running, check fluid again and adjust accordingly.
