Question about 2001 Buick Regal

Open Question

2001 Regal intermittent problem. Dash, radio, a/c and windows go dead. still runs fine. No defrost is a problem! Where are the grounding points to check? Is that the problem.

This can happen a couple times a day or it can go out for days or weeks or work just the same. Also, when the electrical is out, the car starts when the key is turned to on before it gets to the start position.

SOURCE: car dies while driving

I bought my 89 Reatta in 2000 with less than 10,000 miles on it. It ran perfect for a couple of months and then it would just die for no reason. No lights-nothing. This would seem to happen more often as I drove it. I finally zeroed in on the battery connector as the problem. I had my local Goodyear dealer replace the positive cable with a different type of connector and the problem disappeared. It has not ever happened again since replacing the battery cable. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Bought a new battery and my 1992 buick lesabre still won't start

i had the same problem on my '92 Lesabre ltd. All you need to do it is get the rust off your battery cables, use the wire brush to scrub the contact surfaces. also use a wrench to tighten the bolt to the battery, take precaution as to not to tighten too much , it might beak the battery threads.

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Regal just dies going down the road but starts again

If your car dies suddenly and otherwise runs fine, the root of the problem is an electrical problem or electronics/computer related. Even though it could be a fuel shut off that caused the car to stop. The "brain" controls ignition and fuel thus my assessment. Have the codes read to see if a problem is indicated with the computer or sensors. Since it is an intermittant problem, it is possible your code reads will still be normal. Check all connections if you don't get a coded problem. Good Luck!

I have a Buick Regal 98 car that want say anything when starting, and the head lights, radio, horn and windows not working.

No radio, no lights, no start = dead battery. Even with key off, lights should come on if battery isn't dead

2003 Ford Expedition XLT climate controls not working

Check the wiring harness around the radio inside the dashboard. Perhaps you cut or pinched a control wire (the pinched wire may be shorted to ground). Also make sure any connectors to the climate controls are properly seated - they may have been pulled loose.

Something is draining my battery 134,000 M

IT costs nothing to have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell which your problems point to. While the engine is running the alternator will be handling the power requirement but the battery will not supply the power required to start.

Replacing radio, need to know how to remove dash

dash is ismply snapped into place. There are only plugs in teh dash if your model is a 4wd. It's easiest to tilt the steering wheel all the eay down for removal of the dash bezel. Once the bezel is removed there are only two screws holding in the factory radio.

Speedometer, gas gauge and instrument lights stopped working but radio and tach work fine. defroster fan runs on high and can not be turned off because no buttons on the dash work. car runs fine.

First use a test light and check all fuses. Then check and make sure brightness control is up all the way for the dash lights. If everything there is fine check under the dash for all ground connections and make sure they are clean and tight. If all this is good you need to check the headlight/dash lights switch. If it is okay then you have a problem in the dash itself and the instrument panel will have to be removed and the wiring and printed circuits checked.

Windows, radio, sunroof, trunk all wont work

After you check and test the fuses and breakers, look for voltage present. Then, look for a grounding problem. Many items out at once,or intermittent power, points to a problem with a lack of, or a poor ground. LB
