I have a 1998 Buick Regal GS. It is the 3.8L Supercharged model. I am having terrible electrical problems that seem to come and go as they please. When I turn the left or right turn signal on sometimes the car will completely shut off, all lights will go out like it shorted out or something and immediately 2-3 seconds later the car will pop all the lights back on like the key was just put in the car. Sometimes it happens when I'm driving and I have to quick put it in neutral and restart the car when the lights pop back on. Hoping someone can help me with this problem because it seems it may be impossible to detect cause it is only there once in awhile. It happens everytime I'm in the car but sometimes it won't do it or will go away. It's very confusing for me.

This has actually happened to me also. It lasted maybe a month. In the mean time before it fixed itself, what I used to do is as soon as I start the car I turn on the left turn and then the right turn. When I did this I was able to drive just fine until I turned the car off. But I did this every time I started the car just to be safe.

Unfortunatelly I had a period of no problems with this for a couple of months, only to come back for no reason and now it is with a frequency of once a week or less. Not really fixed it self.
