Question about 1999 Buick Regal

1 Answer

My 99 buick regal ls 3800 II series won't start or even turn over. The dash lights come on and the radio works, which leads me to believe it's not the battery. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might cause this problem? Thank you

On the passengers side close to the battery there is a junction box.There are fuses and relays in here.Remove the cover and check the crank fuse.It is a maxi fuse so it is one of the big ones.If you look under the cover it self it will show which fuses are for what circuits.If this fuse is blown then replace it with the same size fuse.If it is good then you will have to check and see if you are getting power to the starter.This will be at the purple wire on the starter.You need to have above 9 volts for the starter to turn over.The best way to check this is with a multimeter.If you have over 9 volts then try tapping on the starter while attempting to start the vehicle.If it turns over then replace the starter if not you will have to find out if you are getting power out of the park/nuetral switch.This is located on top of the transmission by the shift cable.Power comes in on the yellow wire and goes to the starter on the purple wire.If you have power going in but not out then replace the park/nuetral switch.Hope this helps and let me know what you find.Good luck.

You name it ive done it!!!! I have a 99 regal with the 3800 series 2 and it is running rough either at idle oe driving and every once in awhile it will just die but starts right back !!! any ideas?


I have a 1988 Buick Century and was having trouble diagnosing a similar issue. $70 and an idle air motor (really looks more like a solenoid-driven valve) solved 60% of the problem...still working on the lagging on the high end, but driving it every day. Good luck!

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.


I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.

Anti-lock dash warning illuminated


check brakes fluid level and also check to see if the sensor was connect back after the pads was change. If all is ok then take it to Auto Zone and they will scan it and clear the code for free also you can clear the code by disconnecting the negative battery lead for 10 seconds but this might make your radio ask for a code in order to play it. good luck

Buick Regal Gs supercharger nose assembly please help if you can


the 3.8" supercharger (belt) pulley? You need a special tool as they are press fit.
www.intence-racing.com and www.3800performance.com

both carry it and offer the tool for rent as well.

Much of the noise comes from the coupler, however there are case (needle) bearings as well that wear, Those are much more difficult to replace.
