WAS HAPPENING TO ME IN '05 AND HAS RECENTLY STARTED AGAIN. IN '05 THEY REPLACED A SWITCH #26068757, COST THEN $130+ AND $264 IN LABOR. THEN IN NOVEMBER WHEN I WANTED TO START THE CAR AND IT WOULD NOT I RETURNED TO THE SAME DEALER AND THEY INSTALLED A NEW CYLINDER #26054914 ($94.74 & $30.78 - GOT DISCOUNT ON PARTS BECAUSE I THINK THEY MESSED UP BY NOT DOING THIS IN SEPTEMBER). LABOR $201. SO NOW IT IS 5 YEARS LATER AND IT HAS STARTED AGAIN. I FOUND THAT BY HITTING THE LOWER PLASTIC COVER WITH YOUR FIST OR A SMALL RUBBER MALLET SOMETHING HAPPENS AND THE KEY WILL START THE CAR JUST FINE. SMALL RUBBER MALLET, LESS THAN $10.

On my 1998 buick regal GS the perf shift light has turned on what is that?


Should be a button on the side of the shifter - push it and the light would go off.
It is how you change from regular to performance shifting.

My Buick Regal GS 98' has electrical issues, wont start, or if It does sometimes the dash goes crazy, or it stalls. Have replaced the turn switch. Could the power windows on driver side be problem? How do...


I had the same problem with my 98 regal. I replaced a wiring harness on the steering column that has heavy gadge wires coming from the fire wall and going to a small black box directly below the ignition switch.Since I replaced it I have not had any problems

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.
