I had the same exact problem, It was the alternator, tested bad. They replaced it
problem seemed to go away, the following week the new part failed and they replaced it again. seems to be fine now. Yes that brace needs to be removed to replace the battery. I soaked the bolts with wd-40 then it come off without a hitch. For the record my 2000 buick century has 58000 miles.

an electrical short in your system, get a meter that measures current and voltage and test your battery and the connections. I had to replace the battery cables and the battery then I had the alternator tested at autozone the person testing it said that it was still good but something was going bad inside it the way it sound it sound like metal grinding so I replace the alternator, since I replace both battery and alternator my back windows will not roll down so I checked the fuses they where blown this is a buick century 2000

2003 Buick Century. The low speed blower does not work (the 2 lowest settings). I checked all of the fuses, all are ok. There are some lights out on the face plate for the blower/ac, and there are some lights out on the radio. Not all of them, just a few. Is the problem likely under there somewhere? And, what would I be looking for? And, how hard is it to remove and get in there, without screwing things up or making everything look bad when I put it all back together?
#450 of 592 1997 Century wiper issue
Mar 23, 2009 (3:29 pm)
Last year I replaced my wiper motor and all was great until today. On my way to work the wipers stopped working and after removing all the plastic molding I found that the screw that holds the wiper arm gears to the motor came lose.
After replacing the screw and putting everything back together, now when the wipers are in timer mode, the wipers pause in the middle of the windshield. Other then that the wipers work ok.
So I have two questions:
1. How do i fix the pause location?
2. Which side does the longer wiper are go in? I wasn't sure if I mixed them up. I have the larger arm on the passenger side. Is this correct?
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.

#451 of 592 01 century transmission problems
Mar 23, 2009 (4:42 pm)
o1 buick century 145,000 miles.
When you start out cold the vehicle shifts up to drive then just kinda nothing happens. Like it is out of gear. shift to lower gear & it goes until it hits drive & then nothing. Shift down again it starts going & then put it in drive & it finally goes thru gears & keeps going. Now you can stop & start & no problems. Stop, floor it, it shifts thru all gears & is fine. Let it cool down for a few hours & the same problem. Transmission fluid is full & no sign or smell of burnt fluid. In my past experience when the filter was dirty, a vehicle wouldn't shift out of gear so I don't think it would be the filter. Any one have any ideas of what's going on?

Yeah, my driver side rear window works when it wants to. Mostly works in the winter time when its snowing and is likely to be the only one that works when the others are frozen shut. In the summer there is no chance of it working.
