Figure out what year and model it is, then look on eBay for a replacement used part. you can also find thousands of recyclers on the internet and you can search their inventory. used to be called junkyards. many, many many, parts are interchangeable for the whole 91-99 S series. many, i did not say all.

Possible shorted transmission harness or transmission shift solenoids. Disconnect the big connector at the transmission under the car and see if the short stops and fuses don't go.

Inspection and Verification
  1. Visually inspect the following for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Axle shafts and universal joints
  • Driveshaft and universal joints
  • Fluid leaks
  • Matching tire size
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse:
    • 1 (50A)
    • 3 (50A)
    • 13 (20A)
    • 30 (10A)
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse:

My 2011 buick regal cxl stalls over speed bumps,and makes a clicking sound when starting up sounds like its coming from passenger side under hood

Look for a loose bulkhead connector, or something near the alternater. This ride should still be under warranty, so let the dealership figure it out!

Its not turning over, i replaced the starter relay, the starter and put in a new battery. nothing comes on in the cab except the headlights, cab lights, tail lights,horn & the warning sound that comes...

Look for a fusible link or fuse link off of the starter or a set of fuses or Maxi fuse that is blown in the fuse box.

Fuse Link The fuse link is a short length of special, Hypalon (high temperature) insulated wire, integral with the engine compartment wiring harness and should not be confused with standard wire. It is several wire gauges smaller than the circuit which it protects. Under no circumstances should a fuse link replacement repair be made using a length of standard wire cut from bulk stock or from another wiring harness. To repair any blown fuse link use the following procedure:
  1. Determine which circuit is damaged, its location and the cause of the open fuse link. If the damaged fuse link is one of three fed by a common No. 10 or 12 gauge feed wire, determine the specific affected circuit.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Cut the damaged fuse link from the wiring harness and discard it. If the fuse link is one of 3 circuits fed by a single feed wire, cut it out of the harness at each splice end and discard it.
  4. Identify and procure the proper fuse link and **** connectors for attaching the fuse link to the harness.
  5. To repair any fuse link in a 3-link group with one feed:
    1. After cutting the open link out of the harness, cut each of the remaining undamaged fuse links close to the feed wire weld.
    2. Strip approximately 1?2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the detached ends of the 2 good fuse links. Then insert 2 wire ends into one end of a **** connector and carefully push one stripped end of the replacement fuse link into the same end of the **** connector and crimp all three firmly together. NOTE: Care must be taken when fitting the 3 fuse links into the **** connector as the internal diameter is a snug it for 3 wires. Make sure to use a proper crimping tool. Pliers, side cutters, etc. will not apply the proper crimp to retain the wires and withstand a pull test.
    3. After crimping the **** connector to the 3 fuse links, cut the weld portion from the feed wire and strip approximately 1?2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the cut end. Insert the stripped end into the open end of the **** connector and crimp very firmly.
    4. To attach the remaining end of the replacement fuse link, strip approximately 1?2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the wire end of the circuit from which the blown fuse link was removed, and firmly crimp a **** connector or equivalent to the stripped wire. Then, insert the end of the replacement link into the other end of the **** connector and crimp firmly.
    5. Using rosin core solder with a consistency of 60 percent tin and 40 percent lead, solder the connectors and the wires at the repairs and insulate with electrical tape.
  6. To replace any fuse link on a single circuit in a harness, cut out the damaged portion, strip approximately 1?2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the 2 wire ends and attach the appropriate replacement fuse link to the stripped wire ends with 2 proper size **** connectors. Solder the connectors and wires and insulate the tape.
  7. To repair any fuse link which has an eyelet terminal on one end such as the charging circuit, cut off the open fuse link behind the weld, strip approximately 1?2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the cut end and attach the appropriate new eyelet fuse link to the cut stripped wire with an appropriate size **** connector. Solder the connectors and wires at the repair and insulate with tape.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable to the battery and test the system for proper operation. NOTE: Do not mistake a resistor wire for a fuse link. The resistor wire is generally longer and has print stating, "Resistor: don't cut or splice."

No brake lights,have replaced all bulbs and brake light switch is good what left

you could just have abrake light switch problem located on your brake pedal. i have ran across a bad connection at the fuse box.

1. Check power in and out of the dash fuse box. Power comes in through connector JB-10 and goes out of JB-05 and JB-07, all White/Green wires. The connectors plug into the back of the dash fuse box. If there is power in and no power out, the problem is in the dash fuse box.

1996 olds acheiva electrical problem


Other than the dome light, all of the other electrical you posted operate using the ACC terminal of the IGN switch. The most likely then would be a loose connector either of the wiring harness, relay base or fuse holder fed by the ACC B+. Determining which is a matter of tracing the wiring from the ACC terminal to the fuse box/feeder (in some instances, there would be a relays likewise). From the fuse box/feeder it would go to the different fuses for the radio, defogger, auto door lock. The fuse(s) may be OK but their connectors might be loose and/or the main connector that feeds the fuse box/feeder being the common denominator.

The dome light should work even with no key in IGN swtich turned to ACC. But then again, it is fed from the fuse box/block straight from the battery's + terminal. Which leads back to the connector to the fuse box/block. Your best bet would be to remove/reconnect the different connectors going to and from the said fuse box/block.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
