#357 of 592 1994 BUICK CENTURY GEAR DISPLAY NEEDLE STUCK
Dec 06, 2007 (6:13 am)
Was wondering if someone can help me out here. This morning I started my car (buick Century 1994) and when I switched into gear I accidently went to the 3 mark. When I tried to go back to D the needle did not wanted the move on the display. The car switched into gear because I can hear it, but the needle is stuck at the 3. What can I do to let it go back to P and then move when I switch the gear.
Any help appreciated.

Had the same trouble with my Chevy Lumina. It is likely to be your Crankshaft position sensor. There is a trick to removing it. Let me know if you need help.

Hello, can anyone tell me where the ecm is located? I have power to the engine and a/c relays when thy are removed, but lose it when they are plugged in. I checked the relays with my meter and battery and they seem fine. I suspect there is something on the ecm allowing power but no current. Does this sound like the ecm? I'd like to change it but need to know where it is. Thanks!

Just checked my factory service manual and it says that the ECM is located under the instrument panel on passender side. Probably behind glove box. Never had to find mine so I dont know first hand. Let me know how it goes.

That's where it is alright. I haven't a clue how I'd get it out as there is almost no roo,. It looks like the glove box has to come out.
In any case, I found out it is the intake gasket causing the problem, so I'm changing that this weekend. Thanks for the response!

My 99 century is overheating and I have changed the water pump and thermostat and bled the system and it is not leaking water (visibly) but it still overheats. I took it to a radiator shop and spent $158 on sensors and testing fan circuits and all is ok, but it is still overheating. Can anyone help me before "I" overheat?!
