Here is one for all you lighting gurus out there. 1994 LeSabre Custom. Great road car and really good mileage. Has 108,000 on it but well maintained. ABS light stays on but I don't slide 'em anyway and the brakes are really good. Here's the situation: Cruise control works but the "Cruise" light is inop. Next the instrument lights won't come on but I can turn the dome light on with the instrument light rheostat. When the keys are in the ignition and the driver's door is opened, the dinger dings (as it's supposed to); when the ignition is turned off with the headlights on, the dinger dings (as it's supposed to); now, with no keys in and no lights on, when the driver's door is opened, the dinger dings (which it isn't supposed to). I'm thinking it's a fuse but which one? There is a small index pasted to the fuse box cover but doesn't mean much to me. I don't want to give the dealer another chance to guess. Now what? Over.

I have heard people comment about the bell going off at the wrong time. The instrument panel lights not workin may mean a connector at the instrument panel isn't making good contact. It could be grounds at the bottom of the A pillar where the plastic trim follows around to become the door bottom. I have a manual for a 93 but don't have a 94 to check electrical problems. The bells could be suffering from the same ground problem.
I believe I've heard mention of a body control module that controls all the bells and whistles. Don't know where it is and believe it was in a Bonneville discussion where some of these have been mentioned. But my thinking is each is a unique circumstantce. Some leSabres have a small fuse and relay and bell panel on the passenger side above the right foot. Remove the hush panel. On top of the hush panel is a listing of what each item is. Listen to see if that's the source of ding sound by the way. The noise maker itself may be under there..
#1404 of 1520 2004 Limited Rear Air
Nov 15, 2007 (1:05 pm)
Just got a great deal on a 2004 Limited with 63,000 miles. Paid $9000 at a Lincoln Mercury dealership. My only issue with the car is that the rear outlets do not dispense any air.
I have tried the lever in between the two vents and nothing happens if I move the lever up or down, although I hear some sliding noises inside the vents. Is there a rear air switch I am missing? Do the rear vents only work in certain modes? (ie, only in Air conditioning or when the flow is on the floor)
Thanks for any help. Love the car.
As a side note, is there a better value out there than large, late model American sedans?

There is a duct that comes lose below the rear vents near the floor under the middle front seat. See if the air is coming out near the floor behind the middle front seat. If it is, then the duct needs to be reconnected. Mine came off on my 2003 about 10 times after 10 visits to the dealer for seat and electrical repairs. To reattach, move the front seats forward and up all the way. Then put your hand on the duct near the floor and push it real hard on and over the solid receiver. The duct is flexible but can come off when you just move the seats too much. Its not easy to get on but mine has stayed on for the last 2 years so hopefully its kind of formed now to stay on. I hope I don't have to remove the seat anytime soon as I probably would never get it to stay on again. I do have a front driver seat heating element out, but have not attempted to fix it for about 1 year.
#1406 of 1520 2003 Buick LeSabre Limited AC Not Working
Nov 16, 2007 (9:05 am)
My AC is not blowing cold on my 2003 Buick LeSabre Limited. It was intermittent about 1 month ago and now has just stopped all together. Also, the blue light on the temp dash control is now out but the red light still works. Further, the lights on the dash fan control now don't work either. Could it be a bad electronic dash AC control panel or a freon leak? Any ideas? Thanks.

Nov 16, 2007 (8:27 pm)
Good news in a way. The instrument light problem was a blown fuse (found by easter-egging) now they work. The Cruise light still doesn't but, hopefully, is another blown fuse - now to find it. Suggestion: go to your friendly auto zone and get a pack of 10, 15 and 20 amp mini-fuses and put 'em in the trunk.

Thanks, mariannesam. That did the trick. Kind of a hokey setup for the rear air. I think I will be "fixing" this problem quite often.
Otherwise, great car (except for the cup holders, which are terrible)
#1409 of 1520 Security light stays on a little while after starting
Nov 27, 2007 (6:57 pm)
This morning the word "Security" light on the panel stayed on after I started and drove my 1998 Buick Lesabre a little ways. Why? What does that mean? It drives so good, it has about 90,000 miles on it. I love my Buick but I'm concerned about this Security Light.

Driver side is the only windowo working!
The rear windows work only after the car has been going at a significant speed for a while.
The Passengers side works only when car is moving (doesn't have to be going fast)and you jiggle the buttons on the driver's side and the passenger does the same!
What a riot, right? The poassenger window was the first one to start acting up! Do you know if this is a master switch problem, or what? I can't figure it out.
Thanks to all
