Sounds like either a short in the wires somewhere, or a bad ground wire that is wiggling and sometimes making contact, sometimes not. If you're mechanically inclined, pull the panel and follow the wires behind it. Make sure none of the insulation has cracked off and is grounding positive wires to metal. Also check the ground wire(s) to make sure they are securely grounded and not loose where they mount.

Have a 1992 buick lesabre with a new problem. I tried to start the car on Thurs. all lights inside, radio, ac, instrument panel lit up. there was no sound from the engine. I adjusted the gear shift and...

The ign lock cylinder has two tiny wires that may be going bad and not making connection. The fix is to replace the ign. lock cylinder and chip key. The starter will not turn over if they are not making contact and it may go into a shutdown mode for a few minutes due to the anti-thieft device.

1992 Buick LaSabre. Alternator apparently quit and no warning from the idiot lights and all of them were not lit even on turning the key to "on". . Once new alternator installed, idiot lights (all of them)...

depending upon where inside the alternator the failure occurred, it may or may not trigger the light, especially if the failure was sudden. That's one of the reasons I like gauges or a gauge&light arrangement better.

Location of turn signal relay

It should be mounted to the firewall just to the left of the steering column under the instrument panel. But you really should pay attention to the post above. Especially if it's just one side. Turn the signal on, and look in front and back to see if the bulbs are lit. Then do the other side. If they aren' t on, they're burnt out and that's your problem.

Car radio and clock quit working

I figured out that it was just a blown fuse after all the work of pulling the light bulbs. Changing the fuse for the radio fixed the interior light problem go figure.

With your transmission warm and your car running. Check your fluid level. With that amount of Km, it most likely needs serviced and the bands tighten. There are some additives on the market that will give you a little longer life. You may want to try some of them.
