Question about 1999 Buick Regal
Maybe a solution. Are you sure that its because your using your turn signal? Does this occur while moving or while sitting idle?
My car engine would turn off while sitting idle at a traffic light. Many people turn their signals on while idle instead of before they get to the light or stop sign. There is a problem with the engine getting too hot while stopped and then turning off. Make sure you're put your signal on before stopping and see if that makes a difference. If it keeps turning off while just sitting it may be the engine.
However this might be something different and if so that very weird.

I had the ignition switch replaced in my 98 Buick Regal and it has worked fine since. I cringed the first few times I turned on the signal lights but it is working fine now.
The dealer would not tell me that this was the problem - I had to request that they install the switch. I was willing to take the chance - I had to have my car.

I have a 98 Regal LS with the same problem. Took it to one dealer and they said it was the multifunction switch which cost about $600 before labor and tests. Decided to go with another dealer (one I used before) and they fixed it by replacing the ignition switch. Total cost was about half. Car runs great with 201,500 miles on it.

I had the same problem with an Old Cutlass. Nobody could diagnose nor fix until one day a mechanic suggested changing the ignition switch. Never anothr problem! I kept it for three more years and it never stalled again. Hope this helps. MGB

You could have a short in the wiring harness in the stearing collum. I had one on mine and it would shut off turning corners.

Ive got a 98 regal LS and i believe its the main computer board on my car thats malfunctioning 1 out of every 3 or 4 times i turn the car on my "Anti lock" and "emergency Brake" light turns on and my steering wheel gets a bit tighter to turn it will go away after i turn the car off and on again? also my front right turn signal socket eats the plastic of my bulbs constantly i'm looking to replace just the socket if anyone knows of a place i can get this at? Another weird problem I've discovered was when i turn the cars ignition off after driving and i leave the turn signal on an "On" position my dash board makes a buzzing sound with my speedometer gauges going all the way to 120mph and my rpm gauge also going all the way over? has anyone had these problems before? again my vehicle is a 98 Buick regal LS with appx 100k miles on it looking to replace mainly my front right turn signal socket for under $25? dealer is charging almost $40 for this part.
