There is two differet motors and I believe two different switches. If not two switches, there should still be two motors. Either one of the motors is bad, or the swich is bad. You can use a voltmeter to test power to the motors to see if there is power going to them. If there is power to both motors, then the one motor that isn't turning is bad. If no power to one of the motors, then likely the switch is bad since the power source is the same fuse.

My power driver seat will not move foward but it will go backward


The seat has a transmission to move the seat up, down, foward , & back. Screw jacks adjust the seat up & down. Cables move the seat forward & back. The cable it seems had to break or the end of the cable has rounded out. Possibly the cable rounded out the seat it rides in the transimission housing too. You will need to remove the seat to find out

Every time i start my 98 buick regal ls my drivers window goes down


The only wiring schematic I could find for your car is for the 2000 Buick Regal, but I hope this helps,
since it gave me a reason why starting a car would cause the driver's power window to
go down, and no other window in the car - it has a special circuit component
(the "Express Down Module").

Its possible that the Express Down Module in the power window switch circuit has failed. This
module latches the "Express Down" switch in the "made" state until released by the "Express
Down Module." If the Express Down Module is latching the Express Down switch when it
shouldn't (at power-up) instead of when it should (at the window "down" limit), then the driver's
window would lower when the driver starts the car. The way to tell if this is the problem is to
note how fast the driver's windows goes down - if it goes down ALL THE WAY, then you know
that the "Express Down" circuit is involved (and therefore suspect the Express Down Module).
If the driver's window only lowers part of the way, then the Express Down circuit is exonerated.
See the various components of the driver's power window circuitry in the
2000 Buick Regal power window circuit schematic below.

Trying to remove the headrests from the front seats of a 1998 Buick Regal LS. Want to remove old sheep seat covers for cleaning. Can't find any release. There is a small hole in the back of each plastic...


THERE MAY BE O LOCKING MECHANISM INSIDE! TRY USING A SMALL HARD WIRE, LIKE A LONG ALLEN WRENCH THAT WILL FIT IN THAT HOLE! IF THERE IS ONE THERE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO RELEASE IT WITH A LITTLE PRESSURE TO UNLOCK THE HEADREST!
