A ton of Buick and GM owners replace the ignition switch so that their cars won't cut out and KILL THEM.
The distributor might be damaged on your 1999 Buick Regal if it stalls occasionally and will not start. This problem is common in older vehicles and once you sit for a few minutes, the vehicle will generally restart.Ê
try replacing the crank senser,.
I have the same issue it is the map sensor

buick regal grand national
I had the same problem check the crank shaft position sensor i payed maybe 25 bucks for one and its not all that hard to change with the right tools.
The alternator is probably at fault. Charge the battery and drive the car to your local auto parts store, they will test the charging system for you for zip.
I have a '95 buick regal with a similar problem. I took it to the local dealer, who changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and one of the ignition modules and the problem was fixed. I researched it on the internet and found several other cases with the same sensor problem. You can in theory change it yourself, but it's not easy - I think I paid $200-250 for parts and labor.
Out of gas
push the parking brake ,before starting the engine
The Fuses 5 23, and 30 are under the hood fuse box in a 1993 Buick regal limited with a 3800 while the ignition fuse is at left side of the fuse box
sounds like you need a new dimmer switch, or there is a loose wire
Area where your left foot rests while you are driving
Happened to me .. it was the crank sensor. Pretty inexpensive to fix
you buy a new car!
One of the main causes for a 1998 Buick LeSabre to die while driving is a problem with the computer. The computer might tell the fuel pump to shut off and stop sending fuel to the motor.
could be alternator? On 2001 models there is a problem with the fuel pressure regulator that causes this. I suspect there may be a problem with the 2000 models also. Mine was replaced for $70 over two years ago and I have not had this issue since.
On a 1994 Buick LaSabre why does the engine continue to rev up while driving even when the brake is applied ? or when driving why doesn't the engine return to idle when the brake is applied? I would check for a vacuum leak
Had a recent situation with similar symptoms. Turned out to be a faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor. P/N of replacement was 19179715. Hope this helps.
It actually could be some type of sensor such as the o2 sensor. Having a fried sensor can actually send mixed signals to your ecu which will make the car die or shut off.
The amount of coolant to fill a Regal radiator depends on the engine size. A smaller motor might only use 1.75 gallons of coolant, while a larger motor could use 3 gallons.
Check camshaft sensor. When it heats up the car will shut down while driving in town or on freeway. It may start back up right away or it may take a few minutes to cool down then start up. We had to trial and error through this and it can be frustrating, and the part is fairly easy to change and costs under 30 dollars.
