More info would help to answer this. Do ignition lights come on? Is there clicking noise?
If dash lights come on, and one click, then the starter is bad. You could try tapping starter with a hammer while holding key in start position. If it kicks over, then replace starter.

If noclick at all, then the starter relay is bad, usually a part of the starter, replace starter.

Pull your battery cables and clean thoroughly. Especially the bottom ends, they're exposed to grease & road grime. clean all ends with wire brush.

    Listen up. Ive been dealing with this for over a year and just recently fixed it myself. First, turn the key forward 2 clicks and wait ten minutes. (no less) then trystarting it, turn it back then start it. I used this trick for over a year. Finally it all went out. 800-1000 bucks at the dealer. I took a risk and spent 200 on this part from a website. Installed it myself and i couldnt be happier.

95 Buick Regal will not crank when engine warm wait 20 or so minutes and it will crank what causes this issue.?


Define crank ? Does the engine spin when you turn the key to the start position ? This is referred to as engine cranks . now yours won't start an run ! This is a cranks no start condition ! When it won't start an run check for spark at a coil , your vehicle has three if a V-6 . Pull both plug wires off same coil an crank engine , is there spark ? Yes - No . No spark , ignition module could be bad , crankshaft position sensor , Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

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? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Sometimes after I put my 2000 Buick Regal LS in Park and turn off the engine the ignition switch not the key gets stuck in the on and acc position. What causes this to happen?


Replace ignition switch (the tumbler portion) seems like its hanging up, and you shouldn't be able to remove the keys unless the switch is off.The park safety switch possibly. This switch tells the vehicle its in Park. Hope this helps.

Does a 95 Buick regal have a chip in the ignition key? Does it need a chip in the key to start?


1995 Regal has a factory "anti theft" type device. The way it works is the ignition key has a resistor built in, if you try to start the car without the correct key (with the resistor), it shuts down ignition and no gas will go to engine.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

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.

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.

95 Buick Fuel Pump, or Filter?


do you have a dis system(direct ignition system)? If you do it is probably your crank sensor. If you don't it could be your ignition coil or distributor. You could tap on the crank sensor while starting this could help.
