Check all your fuses and your coil/coils, could be your alternator. check your distributor cap also, points, tightness, etc.

    my fuses are good just checked. tryed to get a reading from my obd1 but they say it isnt giving a reading so it might be an electric problem.( earlier problem of running rough)then woulnt start unless i took off the gas cap and let it cool down for awhile (2hrs) went to work and back started fine, came home to leave again and its dead. i was checking around and seen the ignition switch could be bad.

    A friend told me to check batter I had it on a charger for 15-20mins. And the car still didn't start. He advised me that most new cars now . The battery runs the alt. So I took it in and had it checked. Yep Bad. Replaced and started right up. It actually fix all problems. Ran rough while cold. Check engine light WAS on . Now runs good and light is off. Thanks.

SOURCE: 1994 buick regal wont start unlless a jump off,and then run good

Means you have a bad battery, unless your alternator not charging, take an ohm meter set to dc volts put on battery while engine running should be 13.1 to 14.3 volts, if within voltage bad battery if lower bad alternator

Lately my 95 Buick Regal won't start when turning on the ignition key, unless I wait a couple of hours - then it may start. What causes this poroblem?


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

I have a 2000 buick Regal LS. My battery died, I gave it a jump. The Car cranks , but wont stay on unless the gas pedal is press down. If you let the gas pedal go , the car shuts off. what is the solution...


Check out the TPS on the throttle body. It has three wires to it, The black is the ground and the other two are for high and low resistor readings. If an open occurs the car will die out and very well start again. The tps should have a 1.5 volt setting to operate correctly when new

My wife's 1995 Buick Regal has no power


Sounds like a dead cell/shorted battery. 3 years is a little soon but with the fact that you recently replaced the alternator, I would suspect that your battery is done! Even a weak battery will let you jump one, bad cables usually will let you jump one, but a shorted/bad celll in a battery will prevent them from taking a jump. good luck

95 buick regal will start but dies right after


Exact same problem that I had on mine. The typical resistor trick was useless. Here is the only thing that saved it from the junkyard: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass

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.
