#180 of 209 1997 Buick LeSabre trunk latch retrofit
Aug 25, 2009 (9:24 am)
I have a 97 LeSabre that doesn't have the power trunk latch option.
I would like to retrofit one.
I would like to know what parts I need and what parts are already there (wiring, etc)?
The existing latch has a wire to it but does not appear to have an actuator. I am assuming I will have to replace it, but I wonder what the existing wire is for?

Just wondering - I have a '95 LeSabre Custom & would like to swap out the instrument cluster with that of a 96/97/98. Is this possible? I want a tach & other guages rather than just the idiot lights & speedometer.
#182 of 209 2000 LeSabre blinker problem
Sep 29, 2009 (9:57 am)
My rear left blinker randomly quits working. It lights up when I open the door like it suppose to but does not blink at times. I have changed the bulb and it worked for awhile but then it started again. Any ideas?

I realize there might be hestitation with min orders, but those bulbs are probably used through out the vehicle, in the dash, the radio, and the HVAC controls, and the steering wheel controls..
When the snow starts flying here in West. Pa. the LeSabre will be parked in the warm garage for some TLC and all of the bulbs burned out in the areas mentioned.
EDIT: I just ordered 35 bulbs from Atlantic for $43 something.

The driver door works, but suddenly the others don't (windows nor locks).
Switches on the dead doors neither so I'm skeptical it's the door controller. Also checked the fuses (why, right? ... sheesh...)
Is there another controller? What else?
Thanks very much.

By any chance have you had water in the car under the front seat area? You might check. Some Bonneville owners have had corrosion on a wire splice that joins three wires there from the other three doors to the wire from the driver's door controller. If I can find a picture, I'll show you. I think the wires are light brown or tan.
Check fuses in the rear fuse block under the seat, but I think those controll the two rear doors. I don't know that the right passenger door is through that area.

Thanks for your help... no water (I don't think) under the front seat and did check the fuses (there's one for door, one for windows).
#187 of 209 Fuel Filter Problems???
Mar 17, 2010 (6:51 pm)
We have a 91 buick lesabre with 63k miles on it the fuel pump runs constantly even though we put a new fuel pump and a new fuel filter on. Our thoughts are that it is a fuel pressure regulator. We don't know if it has one or where it would be. Any ideas anyone?
