Your vehicle is designed to auto lock the doors when you reach about 15 mph. This is a one way deal. When you park the car, unlocking the doors becomes a manual process to insure the occupants safety at their destination.

2000 regal won't go out of park


I would think it has something to do with
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consist of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid (Regal only).
• The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
• The transmission range switch.

Regal
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids. The transmission range switch provides a path to ground in the PARK position. With the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids energized the shift lever is locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Do the brake lights work ? If not could be cause by bad brake light switch .

20% of the time I cant get key to lock into the lock position, dash lights go out,BUT ignition circuit is left on,its like trying to remove key,w car Not in park.Could it be the neutral safety switch?


No , it's not the park neutral switch , The park neutarl switch won't allow the vehicle to start if not in park or neutal , has nothing to do with turning off the vehicle . Problem with the shift lock contro system probably !
Park Lock Control System (Regal)
The park lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is OFF. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid
• The brake to shift relay
• The body control module (BCM)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition in the OFF position the park lock control solenoid is de-energized. This mechanically locks the shift lever in the PARK position. With the ignition in the ON position, battery voltage is supply to the park lock control solenoid. The control circuit of the park lock solenoid is provided a ground through the brake to shift relay when energized. The body control module (BCM) supplies a ground for the brake to shift relay when the body control module (BCM) receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the transmission is in the PARK position. This closes the normally open contacts of the brake to shift relay and grounds the park lock control solenoid. This energizes the park lock control solenoid releasing the mechanical park lock.

Sorry , but your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

I have a 1995 Buick Regal that automatically locks the doors when you shift from park into drive, I dont like that feature. Is there any way to disable that feature?


If you start it in neutral, the auto locks don't auto lock. As an mechanic, I start in neutral out of habit because it technically reduces wear by avoiding going through reverse.shift out of park while in acc to nuetral and start

I have a 93 buick regal but my front doors & rear


Well, the mirrors would be on the circuit with the courtesy lights. The door locks and windows would be on different circuits.
Why can't you unlock the driver's or passenger door with the key and open it with the door handle ?

My key wont come to the lock position on my 2001 buick regal. how do i get it out


make sure it is completely in park. sometimes you have to slam the gear shift into park position. make sure your key in in the on position. put the car in gear then slam it into park that should allow you to turn the key off completely and remove it

Twice my 21 yr old has told me he cannot start the 2002 Buick Regal. The first time I think the gear shift had not fully engaged in Park. This last time he said the steering wheel locked up, so he...


could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

If the trans.oil is dark brown in color and smell's burnt your tranny is probably on it's last leg.If tou have bad pump pressure or low oil you will have to rev the eng to get it to build enough pressure to move.Your detent cable or kick down cable is for passing,when you step on the gas when passing someone this cable is pulled causing the trans. to go into a lower gear and when you let off the gas it should shift back into a higher gear.if it's out of adjustment it will kickdown to soon or to late.If your car has alot of miles it may be in need of a filter and fluid change,but usually when slipping occures its to late and you will need a replacement tranny.Hope this was helpfull.
