Question about 2000 Buick Regal
The only time the dashboard lights will stop flashing and I can start it is when I have my hazards on. As soon as I turn the hazards off the car dies and the lights on the dashboard start flashing. If I try to start the car when the hazards are not on it sounds like its messing up my starter. I have just replaced the alt. and battery about 3 months ago. If you need more information please let me know.
Most likely it is the ignition switch (the key ignition switch) in the steering column ($100 at a dealer).
It may be a loose negative battery ground cable, too.
Check the negative battery cable where it conencts to the engine ground. It may be loose, corroded, damaged, or otherwise not making a good ground contact.
Add a grounding strap ($11 - AutoZone) from the engine to the chassis. That may help, but it's most likely the ignition switch.
