Question about 1992 Buick Regal

2 Answers

Help, The turn signals only work when I pull up or down on them. While I do that, the brake lights stop working on my 92 Buick Regal.

I checked the fuses. The noise indicator that sounds when the keys are left in or the lights on goes off at will. I have put a temporary spacer under it to keep it from doing that. I think the problem lies in the steering collum but not sure. What do I need to do. Given the age of the car are parts to fix this avaliable?

It sounds like the turn signal switch is bad. If it is, you'll need to pull the steering wheel off to replace it. Here's a good source for parts.

SOURCE: Turn Signal

The turn signal switch most likely needs to be replaced, and yes the steering wheel does have to be removed to make this repair.

I had this same problem. I replaced the turn signal switch in the steering column and it worked great. To test for this, check your lights while wiggling your hazard light button and/or signal lever. When I pulled my hazard button forward, all my lights would come on.

SOURCE: 95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail

I dont have a diagram but the brake light switch has to feed the turn signal switch, Either that wire has a bad connection, or the turn signal switch is bad. Jiggle the turn signal lever and see if the brake lights try to work.

95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail lights work, turn signals work, stoplight switch seems to work ie 3rd brake light working, fuse is ok, changed bulbs, but no rear brake lights.


If the third brake light works and the regular ones don't, it is most likely a bad turn signal (multifunction) switch. The switch is able to kill the brakes lights to run the turn signals, and in rare circumstances does this. I've seen it several times. It could also be wiring, especially near the turn signal switch, but it is usually the switch.

i had the same problem had to replace the turn signal switch....GM for some reason wired the brake lights through the turn signal switch. to check if this is the case with yours. put some pressure on the turn signal lever as if you were going to turn on your brights and press your brake pedal and see if the lights work at that point that is how i found mine. hope this helps. if indeed they work with pressure on the turn signal lever. the new switch cost me $60 at autozone and that is with the steering wheel radio controls, make sure you get the proper switch should be part# sw771 if you have the radio controls on steering wheel and you will need a steering wheel puller and lock plate compressing tool.
