Question about 1993 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Buick Regal 93 Light/window electrical problems.

I just bought this Buick Regal for 500$, it runs great, cold air and new tires but...it has all kinds of electrical problems I didn't know about.

My rear turning lights and my front driver side turning light all do not work. only the front passenger side turning light works.

My drivers side brake lights didn't work either but I spliced its hot line into the working sides line to fix that. If that's an issue or a clue, let me know.

The passenger side windows, front and rear, do not work. I noticed though when I press the switch, the interior light dims just a tiny bit.

I'm most concerned with getting the turning lights fixed, but any other advice is appreciated.

    I get no power to my front left turn signal and my back right one.... Some one spliced the power from the tail lights to the signal so everything works but the front turn signals illuminate when I hit the break. The middle inside break light is out too. How can I fix it so everything works the way it should, without paying 700 bucks when I could do it myself probably.??

Start with the basics... check the bulbs... then the fuses.... after that use a multimeter to see if power is going to the lights that are not working.... bad grounds will cause the lights to be dim or not work.

Hi, 1996 buick regal custom 3.1


The most common emission system problem to set off the check engine light is a loose or defective gas cap ( always tighten cap until you hear at least two or three clicks, and try switching the cap with another one to see if it makes a difference ). The trac light is for the traction control system. Either your spinning your tires a lot or maybe a ABS wheel sensor is bad, dirty or a loose wire. The trac light might be on because of a computer error as well ( if you just bought it, make sure all tires are the same size and brand, because some systems are sensitive to different tire circumferences ).

Is yourd check engine light on? If it is, I would have the codes read first thing. If not, it could be clogged fuel filter or air filter, loose vacuum hose, or bad throttle position sensor or other sensor but the sensors or any electrical problem will set off check engine light.

I had they same problem a few years back. Aging electronic circuits may be the issue here. That is what happened to cause the remote door feature to operate intermittently in my 1991 Buick Regal. Over time the heat of summer and the cold in winter stress solder joints on printed circuit boards. That stress can bring about what is known as cold solder joints.

I located the remote door receiver module behind the back seat under the cover that holds the Third Brake Light. Once removed from the car I opened the module up and inspected the printed circuit. Sure enough I saw the problem using a magnifying glass. Many of the solder points had cracks around connectors, resistors, capacitors to name a few. Resoldering each bad point sovled the intermittent operation. I hope this helps...
