I think we can do that

Happy New Year all! Let's keep this board alive for 2021.

@  dezldave961 : (26 November 2020 - 07:26 PM)

Same. While having my GTP from 02-14, I built it for a buddy in 09 and bought it from him in 16. Going all out now while we're still on partial shutdown. Great way to pass the time.

Welcome back earth1. I'm still sticking by my project regal, even if it has been a garage queen for the last couple of years.

@  earth1 : (18 November 2020 - 03:27 PM)

I want to thank those who run this site for their dedication and for keeping this site going through the years. To have a really good Regal GS, one has to have an extraordinary level of dedication to the car that includes a long-term commitment to it, and not just a passing fancy. Similarly, to the people that keep this site going through the years had to have a similar level of dedication and commitment to keeping it going. I just want to tip my hat, pay my sincere respect to this level of commitment, and say thank you. I will try to contribute what I can. I know that these cars are 20+ years old now and a lot of people have moved on from them, but I want to be counted as one of the ones that stuck with them for the long-term. I hope to see others that love their Regals be active here in this site, and for the Regal community to support each other. Count me in.

I finally remembered my password and can get logged in. I have missed posting to this forum. Lots of things to add here from my own Regal GSE project.

@  ejguillot : (20 October 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Well, welcome back!

@  Marchi1 : (13 October 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Glad to hear there are still lurkers around.

sup turd buckets?

@  de.regal : (04 October 2020 - 10:50 PM)

Still lurk every day

@  tpivette : (03 October 2020 - 02:32 AM)

Sucks these forums are as vacant as they are... oh well, there's still the faithful like us!

@  kevandkaye : (27 September 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Yet still, we lurk. :o

@  ejguillot : (27 September 2020 - 01:08 AM)

Yeah, Facebook took over and killed forums.

@  dezldave961 : (26 September 2020 - 03:24 AM)

Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.

@  ejguillot : (23 September 2020 - 09:02 PM)

Finally updated my signature to match my current Buick.

@  ejguillot : (10 September 2020 - 03:20 AM)

Things are terminally quiet around here...

@  dezldave961 : (29 July 2020 - 04:06 AM)

Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

Turn signals driving me crazy!

I hope I'm not commiting a website faux pas here, but I'm at my wits end with this problem.  Here it is:  My 97 GS has developed serious issues with its turn signals.  Driver side rear signal is non existant.  Front flashes quickly.  Passenger side front signal won't flash, but rear flashes quickly.  All flashers work when hazards are on except for driver's side rear.  Daytime runners work fine.  Replaced all the bulbs, and all fuses test ok.  The indicators in the gauge cluster don't flash, but you hear the clicking it would normally make if you just had a bad bulb.  How screwed am I?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You may need to replace the turn signal switch in the steering column. Try searching "Multifunction Switch". It's not too expensive, but is a little difficult to replace. I'm sure that are DIY instructions somewhere on here.

Do you have aftermarket headlamp assemblies? Bot my gs and ls have them and had the same problem, turn on your blinker and take out the bulb and press on it and see if it starts working. It had to crack open the connectors and bend the contacts inwards and that fixed the problem.

Mine work fine in the daytime but the driver side rear doesn't work at night making the driver side front blink fast. Only 2 things I have read we're the turn signal switch or a new connection wireset for that back bulb. New bulb or old bulb kept same symptoms.

before you get too crazy replacing things, take a look inside each socket.  I've seen a few over the years where there is major scorching inside some of the bulb sockets and they've had to be replaced.  I just found replacements at the JYs for a couple of bucks.

i had similar issues. turned out to be a bad socket in the drl/turn signal light, the wire inside the socket was messed up kept breaking the wire on the bulb and failed to make contact.

 

id check all your bulb sockets first, try swapping the bulbs from side to side.

I have the exact same situation, but it's the front left signal light that doesn't work, the rear is fine and flashes fast.  After much research I found that it is the DRL Control Module and it's very, very expensive... I got one from Morad's but it was the wrong year (they are year specific), find one that is working and your problem will be solved and if you find a second one that works, I'll buy it from you.

Along with all the other answers you guys have provided, how often do you think it could be the issue of the wires in the rear harness at the trunk lid causing some of the problems?

I know I've heard of the DRL modules flaking out, but seems like it'd be a good idea to at least check the wires there at the trunk hinge. You know... Just in case.

 

Good luck either way. Sounds like a very annoying habit for a car to have.

Absolutely agree!
Gy and I went over his car with a fine tooth comb before looking at the DRL box.
I would hope OP checked all the sockets and harnesses for issues. Very common to have a burned out socket or a short/pinched wire in harness.

Once I got to the DRL box, I noticed right away it was the culprit.
