Question about 1997 Buick Regal

1 Answer

I have a buick regal 1997 and the lights are all on but the car won't start my window wipers work but my locks won't manually unlock from the inside

First I went out to my car and I tried to unlock it with the key beeper... it didn't work, then I went and opened the car with the key. I tried to cut the car on and all the lights came on in the car and outside the car. Then I tried to unlock all my doors from the inside of the car and nothing happened. I then tried my wind shield wipers and they worked. Can anyone help me identify my problem so I can try and get it fixed tomorrow?

Does it start if you jump it? Just cause lights come on does not mean you have a good battery. The lights will require less amperage to work than the amperage required to crank the engine. Having stated that, how old is your battery? is your battery able to meet the demand? Have your starting and charging system looked at and good luck

i don't know what you mean by stripped, but iam gessing you mean it won't stay on the windshild when it wipes. have you tride another blade? if not i would try that first. if that dosent work you may have to try another wiper arm. all wipers will do what yours is doing when conditions are just right. you can minamise this problem maybe with a double wiper blade. hope this will help. OLD SCHOOL.

SOURCE: Driver side power lock will lock but not unlock

The only way to really see the problem is by removing the door trim panel. This will allow you to see if is the actuator is moving, and how far, along with noting any interference of lock linkage movement. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The auto door locks on my 1991 buick regal quit or

I had they same problem a few years back. Aging electronic circuits may be the issue here. That is what happened to cause the remote door feature to operate intermittently in my 1991 Buick Regal. Over time the heat of summer and the cold in winter stress solder joints on printed circuit boards. That stress can bring about what is known as cold solder joints.

I located the remote door receiver module behind the back seat under the cover that holds the Third Brake Light. Once removed from the car I opened the module up and inspected the printed circuit. Sure enough I saw the problem using a magnifying glass. Many of the solder points had cracks around connectors, resistors, capacitors to name a few. Resoldering each bad point sovled the intermittent operation. I hope this helps...

2001 Buick Regal. Power door lock swith will not lock doors.


Remove the door panel and unplug the connector to the door actuator. Probe the contacts with a voltmeter set on DC volts. Then operate the lock/unlock switch. You should see the voltage toggle from +12 volts to -12 volts. If you do, then the wiring, switch and connector are good and you have a bad actuator. Be prepared to start replacing all of them because they all operate the same number of cycles.
