Did you cut any wires when doing any work?

Buick Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

I do see the stoplamp circuit does go through the turn signal switch, so I have t ask, are you sure you bought the correct switch? If so, I would think that the switch is just bad right out of the box.

I took everything back apart just to double check that it had no pinched, cut or any wire issues. Then double checked where it connects to harness to make it was plugged in correctly and no bent pins. Everything was fine and I was kind of wondering if it was the switch itself. Also the it quits brakes/blinkers on rear quit blinking when you press the brake pedal
Buick Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Where did you purchase the switch and what part number or brand name is ***** ***** will double-check and see if it's correct.

You can hear the turn signal flasher start clicking when ignition is on and that's when rear lights start flashing the front turn signals works fine while this is happening
Buick Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Well, it's the right switch, must be bad.

That didn't work either
Buick Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Hi there.

You have the wrong switch according to the O'Reillys website (click here to see). To confirm, ask them to crossover the original GM part number(###) ###-####/p>

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
That number comes up for a century not a regal
Buick Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

Are you referring to the GM number? If so, ask your local Buick dealer parts representative to confirm.

If you're referring to the BWD number, then refer back to the O'Reillys web page (click here to see).
