My problem is similar to alot of others in here but a bit different. My problem is all of a sudden, like twenty mins apart, my tail lights, running lights and dash light all decided not to work anymore. The headlights, brake lights and turn signals all work fine. I have changed the fuses in the fuse box inside the car. Any suggestions on this problem or ways to repair cheaply will be greatly appreciated.

Try replacing the crank shaft sensor and this may
fix your problem.
Good Luck kendall

I've got the same problem as myervin (message 65). My dash lights, and tail lights don't work 99% of the time. I've checked fuses, they're fine. I heard that there's a bunch of wires on the passenger side under the hood, not easy to get to, and that their could be a loose wire. I've checked them the best I can. Try delivering newspapers at 4am at this time of year, and see how many looks you get. Not fun.
Any help would be appreicated.

Is there anyone who had this problem: My engine fans come on as soon as I start my car, this prevents my car from getting warm enough to provide heat in the winter time. One solution that I have came up with is to remove two main fuses, but the problem with that is when I do get caught in rush hour my car runs to hot. If anyone has had this problem or just know the solution could you please help me?

Our gas gauge needle has rotated all of the way around and is now on the wrong side of the stop pin. We were told that the dash has to be taken apart to repair this for $100 and there is no guarantee that it wouldn't happen again. This also happened about a year ago after our battery was changed, it was repaired with no extra charge at that time. Every hear of this happening? Are we getting a true story? For the moment we are keeping track of the number of gal of gas used with the computer. Any suggestion?
#71 of 592 Highbeams go out
Dec 19, 2005 (5:09 am)
2002 Buick Century. The highbeams go out completly. If I switch to lowbeams they stay on. Switch back to highbeams & they may stay on for a while but in time will go out again. This problem started about a yr. ago & only happened a few times. Now it is becoming a real problem. Any ideas on the fix?
#72 of 592 lacks power
Dec 19, 2005 (7:46 am)
Same car with headlight problem 2002 Buick Century 3.1. 78,000 miles. Noticed lately that it lacks power going up hills. It won't much go above 35 unless I kick it into overdrive. Also a slight miss is sometimes noticeable when driving on highway. Fuel filter? Spark plugs? Also researching the plugs I found the iridium plug is the OEM plug? Should I stay with that or go platinum or regular? One last ? does the engine need rolled back to change the back 3 plugs?
#73 of 592 Buick Century...boo
Dec 20, 2005 (5:28 am)
So yesterday when I started my car, then turned on the lights, shifted into reverse, and was about to turn off the parking break...my car just turned itself off. When I tried to start it again nothing would work except for the clock which had reset itself...but that slowly turned off.
i tried to jump it from a honda civic, but nothing happened. my buick's power locks won't even work. everything looks connected around the battery, but i have no idea...
I got a ride home, but i'm thinking i'll have to get it towed today...any ideas how much this might cost me/what might be wrong?

My situation is #67 of 73. I just got my car out of the shop for the tail lights not working. Have your headlight switch, and the connector checked. It fixed my problem.
