I turn my blinkers on and the car dies so i replaces the multifunction switch and i needed a jump too get it startes it still dies and now it wont start.. any ideas what i can do next i hear the ignition...

I would have to agree. The ignition switch is most likely the problem. If you replace it then you should solve the problem. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. I hope this helps you out.

I have a 1998 Buick Regal GS that the ignition does not go back to off setting . It starts and runs just fine but will not turn off completely. Whta could it be?

Can you get the key out? if so then it is a bad ignition switch. If the key won't remove then the nuetral safety switch from the transmission is not sending a signal to the switch to relase the key and it wont turn off till the selenoid in the column relases the pin that is holding it back. That could be the issue, but I would recommend that you lubricate any moving parts that you see, and shoot some in the ignition switch as well. Use only a graphite lubricant. Worst case scenario, you have to get a new switch.

What wires go where to starter solenoid on 98 buick regal 3.8l

the large wire is the wire that goes directly to the battery positive,the other smaller wires on this same terminal go to feed different circuits on the car,these wires are fusible link wires, on the other terminal one wire comes from the ignition switch to activate the starter solenoid to start the car.

How do i change the starter own an 1998 buick regal 3.8L i heard that it was simple but u have to remove something under the hood. i was wondering is it the same as a 1996 or 1997 buick regal.

Your 3800 Regal should not create any additional work to remove/replace the factory starter...Ask your parts store to show you sure to disconnect one side of the battery prior to any work around the starter...Should be just 3 bolts (plus 2 wire conncections) for the switch out...Hope this helps.

My Buick Regal GS 98' has electrical issues, wont start, or if It does sometimes the dash goes crazy, or it stalls. Have replaced the turn switch. Could the power windows on driver side be problem? How do...

I had the same problem with my 98 regal. I replaced a wiring harness on the steering column that has heavy gadge wires coming from the fire wall and going to a small black box directly below the ignition switch.Since I replaced it I have not had any problems

1998 Buick Regal Electrical Failure

My 1999 Buick Regal GS was doing the exact same thing. Replaced the ignition switch on the steering column and everything worked fine. You can buy one online for around $85. Installation took me a couple of hours.
