    I am having assorted electrical problems.Two or three years ago my odometer display went out on the cluster all other features worked fine, about two months ago out of the blue I stared the car one morning and the odometer reading was visible , shortly after that on occasion when driving at night headlights would go out, I would cycle headlight switch manually a couple times and lights would come back on., after that headlights went out completely, would not operate manually or with the twilight sentinel feature. After that the car would not start , I noticed if I pushed the hazard flashers or fooled around with the ignition key or tilt positions on the column it would start. I tried my spare key thinking the V.A.T.S. chip on my main key may have been worn ( same problem with both keys) After that I noticed that when I turned the ignition to the on position and turned on the hazard lights all of the warning lights on the cluster would flash at the same time the

    hazard lights flashed. Sorry don't mean to be long winded but I am trying to give you as much Info.as I can.rember in order of failures. Thank You Sir , S.R. San Diego Ca. Peace

    Yes , the car still will not start( think I will replace vats ign cylinder to start) it is a pass key system so I will need keys to go along with the cylinder replacement. question I did manage to find a know-how on replacement of ign switch , this person suggests cutting and splicing the brown and green key position sensor wires at the top connector (IS THIS ACCEPTABLE) .// TWO// Cluster lights would flash only when ign. was in on position. this is not happening now. I would appricate the wiring diagrams .( send to cvraddad@aol.com). Thank you kindly for your help, I will let you know where Iam at once I replace the ign. cyl. THANKS AGAIN . Have a great weekend. S.R. Peace

I don't know where you can get free manuals, but I might be able to help you with your problem. What seems to be the trouble?

    Wow that is a lot of weird problems. Lets start with one. The most important likely, the VATS system. Is this still messed up preventing it from starting? It is a passkey system?(pellet in key)? The headlight still don't work and the hazards flash the dash lights? Do the hazards flash the dashlights with the ignition off. I can send you wiring diagrams for these three issues.

Have a repair shop check for codes,find & solve the issues

Same procedure as every vehicle problem you get

Not much you can do in your driveway, unless you invest
in scan tool software to access the modules in enhanced mode
& own all the service manuals to learn about the systems

I have a 2000 buick regal well i had one it burn up.it was a recall problem does anyone no what is buick responsiblity


Yours is most definetly one of the recalled units which were prone to fire. The GM Recall number is 09047. The National Highway transportation safety association action number is EA 07008. The NHTSA campaign number is09V116000. I am not an attorney, but would advise you to consult one with these numbers and get your claim submitted.

Go to autozone.com and you will be able to enter your make/model/year of vehicle and go to vehicle repair guides category and choose brakes and that should show you what your looking for.

My car will turn over but won't start wht could be the problem?


well without more information. I would advise to get a code puller from your local auto parts store, it should tell you where the problem is. However, if it is turning over, the two most likely things will be your starter motor if you have been having problems intermittently before now. If no previous trouble then I would look at the distributor cap.

2000 Buick Regal. Will be driving along and at times it will not shift into OD cruise gear. Tachometer shows high rpm's. If you take your foot off the gas, then depress again, it appears to shift. Crank...


IF THE TRANSMISSION FLUID IS NOT FLOWING PROPERLY THROUGH THE PUMP DUE TO A CLOGGED TRANSMISSION FILTER, THEN IT MAY NEED TO BE SERVICED. YOU CAN CHANGE THE FLUID AND FILTER YOURSELF AT ABOUT 40 BUCKS AT THE AUTO PARTS STORE. THE PAN HOLDS ABOUT A GALLON OF DEX/MERC TRANS FLUID. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.
