I had the same problem with my 98 regal. I replaced a wiring harness on the steering column that has heavy gadge wires coming from the fire wall and going to a small black box directly below the ignition switch.Since I replaced it I have not had any problems

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

My '98 Buick Regal won't start randomly but fires right up when it does. randomly when you turn the key to start it does absolutely nothing. No warning lights or clicks - absolutely nothing. All the...


It dosent need a new steering column. But It very well may need an ingnition position sensor. It is a sensor that identifies what position the key is in. Obviously if it was malfunctioning it would not recognize you have the key in the start position, and when it does it suddenly fires. I had a 95 Regal that had the same problem, not a cheap one but pretty necessary.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.


I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.

A 1998 Buick Regal GS. 83,000 miles. For the last 30,000 miles, off and on, the engine shuts off when the turn signal is in use. I went to complain on the NHTSA site. Eight other Regal owners...


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.
