Have a 1991 Buick regal,it stops charging wen I plug in temp/fuel gauge into the cluster,why would it do that?

Does it stop charging or the light just comes on/gauge goes down? Plug it in and check if the alternator is putting out 13+ volts. It could be a short in the cluster or the wire from the alternator.

Where is the mileage fuse at on a 1998 buick regal GS

There is no fuse, if it's an LCD screen then it has just stopped working. Sometimes you can get lucky and pull the gauge pod cluster out and replace the bulbs that provide back lighting for the gauges and you can fix it that way.

There should be a fuse marked cluster or gauges that could be blown.
The turn signals are on a separate circuit.
You could also have a problem with the wiring behind the cluster or the cluster itself.
A mechanic would check the fuse and then check for power and ground at the cluster. The gauges are grounded thru their sending units.

The gauges fuse under the dash powers the idiot lights and gauges.If they are working, you need to check the fusible links.Disconnect the battery then look at the starter.The terminal that the heavy battery cable bolts to also has 2-3 other wires bolted to it give each wire a moderate pull,if any stretches easily the link is burnt.When a large short occurs the link will burn out but the insulation usually still looks fine.Make sure to replace it with the same size fusible wire.

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.

Buick sounds like a dying chicken

Do you have the 3800 V6? It sounds like a bad bearing. Most likely the tensioner pulley or alternator.

A 1998 Buick Regal GS. 83,000 miles. For the last 30,000 miles, off and on, the engine shuts off when the turn signal is in use. I went to complain on the NHTSA site. Eight other Regal owners...

Maybe a solution.  Are you sure that its because your using your turn signal?  Does this occur while moving or while sitting idle?

My car engine would turn off while sitting idle at a traffic light.  Many people turn their signals on while idle instead of before they get to the light or stop sign.  There is a problem with the engine getting too hot while stopped and then turning off.  Make sure you're put your signal on before stopping and see if that makes a difference.  If it keeps turning off while just sitting it may be the engine.  

However this might be something different and if so that very weird.
