Could be a couple of things. First open up the underside panel on the passenger side, pull out the BCM box and check for corrosion on the pins. Sometime the AC leaks water out here or if the windshield leaks(Condensation or otherwise) it will rust the pins. Remove all corrosion, and it should work fine. After that fix your leak. Clean the trap in the condenser leak hose to ensure the water escapes from now on. If there is no problem there, you will need to replace the lock cylinder.

1999 buick regal won't start

This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into.

Why wont my 99 Buick regal ls stay running it starts then immediately stalls out

Is your SECURITY light flashing? If so, you have a V.A.T.S. problem. VATS stands for Vehicle Anti Theft System. Try getting a new ignition key made because the resistance value has probably changed in the one you have. If that doesn't do it you'll need to get a VATS bypass.

2000 Buick regal- My key is stuck in the ignition and will not come out and it has no power, I am unable to even move it oiut of the garage. Help!

I suspect your battery is dead. The key won't come out unless the car is in park also.. and might even require power from the battery to get the key out.. I would start with a jump to the battery and see if your key issue is solved.

After putting key in the ignition of my 2003 buick regal, it seems that all power was zapped from the car. The key is still stuck in the ignition.. starter? alternator? battery? brain? I don't know where...

most likely your battery or, cables: when all your power went it probably was because your battery cables are loose or corroded this is also why in some cars the key is retained also check to see if your car is in "park" first

1999 Buick regal Security light on. Won't start.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.
