Question about 1999 Buick Regal
I have a 1999 buick regal ls and you drive down the road and it dies. Then you can crank back up sometimes and sometimes it takes about 10 min.
I found the problem. It was the crank position sensor. There was also a cracked vacuum hose connecting to the diaphragm on the fuel rail. Replaced both and my 92 Buick no longer dies. For the guy who's Buick was dying when using the turn signals - replace the crank position sensor. One of my symptoms of my Buick dying was when I used my turn signals. Use of turn signals places a varying load on the electrical system which messes up the crank posistion sensor if it is going bad.

I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.

I also have a 99 Buick Regal GS that dies when I use the turn signal. I have followed the noise to a circuit board on the foot well drivers side. During the investigation I found that if I turned on my hazard lights the car would start and no noise. I also noticed the problem would go away at night. The control box/circuit board is from Lectron in Michigan p/n on the box is 10408961-9147 but I can't find it. Sorry no solution yet.
