    While driving down the road the vehicle turns itself off. Headlights go off and there is no control of the vehicle. Sometimes the vehicle will crank itself without touching the start button. Sometimes several times before it will remain on long enough to start driving again. It is very dangerous to drive because you have no control over the vehicle at the time of engine shutdown. It doesn't matter if it is highway speeds or in town. Tonight it took over 2 hours to travel a normal 20 minute drive. It all started 27 feb 21 and today (28 feb 21) it is progressively getting worse. Most of the times that it happens a bell will ding 4 times and right after the bell chimes the engine immediately shuts off. All lights extinguish, it loses steering control and brakes are minimized.

    I PURCHASED A CPO 2017 Buick Regal SPORTS TOURING EDITION ON 11/13/2020. ON 12/12/2020 I TOOK IT TO GET WASHED AT A HAND CARWASH AS I DO WITH ALL MY VEHICLES. I HAD TO WAIT FOR MY REAL LICENSE PLATE TO ARRIVE AS THE PAPER/TEMP ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN RUINED. AFTER THE CAR WAS FINISHED, I NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF CONDENSATION WITH IN MY PASSENGER SIDE HEADLAMP. AFTER ARRIVING HOME, I RESEARCHED AND FOUND THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR APPROX. 10 YEARS WITH THESE SPECIFIC VEHICLES. I WENT AND LOOK AT THE CAR AGAIN AND FOUND THERE TO BE A CRACK IN THE HOUSING WHICH APPEARS TO ME TO BE A MANUFACTURING DEFECT. THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY A SAFETY HAZARD AS MY RESEARCH SHOWS THAT IT HAS BEEN BLOWING PEOPLES BALLAST AND BULB CAUSING A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR BOTH DRIVER, PASSENGER AND OTHERS AROUND INCLUDING PEDESTRIANS. IT ALSO SHOWS THAT WIRES WITH THESE HEAD ASSEMBLIES HAVE BEEN MELTING MAKE IT MORE LIKELY AS A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD. I CHECK THE DRIVER SIDE AS WELL AND IT APPEARS TO BE ON THE VERGE OF CRACKING AS WELL AS THE PICTURES SHOW.

    MY DRIVER SIDE HEADLIGHT WILL NOT LIGHT UP ORANGE FOR A SIGNAL. THE DEALERSHIP BUT A NEW LIGHT ON THE Encore AND IT STILL DOESN?T WORK. NO ONE HAS ANY IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM IS OR HOW TO FIX IT. THE LIGHT WORKS FINE EXCEPT THE TOP LIGHT THAT LOOKS LIKE AN UPSIDE DOWN CHECK MARK WILL NOT LIGHT UP ORANGE FOR THE SIGNAL.
