Question about 1999 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Headlights won't work

I have a 1999 Buick Regal. When my wife turns the brights on, all the headlights go out. Whenever she has the headlights on there is a burning electrical smell in the interior. If my wife does not touch the brights, there is no problem except for the smell. Last night on her way home from work, all headlights stopped working.

Relay was stuck.  Now you replace the relay and a few burnt fuses and the burnt wiring.  You should have fixed this at the first warning sign of a problem...sadly, now you pay the price for not doing so.

My headlights wont come on. i checked fuses, bulbs and all is good. what might be the problem

Not an expert on autos but I did own a Buick Regal of that era. I had problems with mine also. They finally found that the wires to my headlight were crossed ad bare with the wires to my horn. Every time I turned on my light the horn kept blasting. Check for stripped wires near your headlights or have someone check them with a voltage meter to see if there is even power getting to the headlamps. Good luck.

pull out on the headlight switch to manually turn the lights on and push it back in to shut off to override the automatic feature. I do this on my own at times
