Question about 1997 Buick.5 Regal
On the regals they have a ceramic resistor on the passanger side under the fender. It heats up and over time it tends to brake and the wire inside tends to rust away. The fuel pumps run in 2 different speeds. Had the same problem. Dealer only part yet the car would run and you would think it was the fuel pump. Turn the key it kicks on then start and dies out. Ceramic on the pass side would need replaced. It is white about 2-3 inches long or so held on with 2 bolts i do believe. Ill find a bulliten i found online to help me diagnos the problem. :) hopefully this helps someone out instead of spendin $$$ that ya cant afford with the recession eh?

Hello; i am not an expert, but i do own a 97 regal gs and i sort of had a similar problem with no start. what i suggest if you have done any work at or around the battery or engine bay fuse block, like replaced a fuse or relay horn or ac check the fuse that is i believe a 15 amp that says on the cover (ELEK IGN) check it and do pull it out if blown replace it. if not reinstall and then try to strart vehicle it should start.
