I had the same problem for 1 year. The headlinght on for awhile then off then back on. I just replace the HDM module relay at position #35 and it work good now. It cost $38 from Auto Zone.

#96 of 102 2005 Buick Allure low beam problem
Feb 07, 2013 (3:32 pm)
This was exactly what the problem was for me. 2005 Buick Allure, the low beams just stopped working but the high beams still worked. I called auto parts stores and the dealership who wanted $75 for the part (15016745). I went to an auto salvage and they gave me two of them for free! Put it in and the headlights work again. That part is used in 03-06 GMC Envoy and Chev Trailblazers as well if your local auto salvage doesn't have many Allures/Lacrosse. Thanks for posting this and saving me about $300!
#97 of 102 fog lights added
Apr 11, 2013 (9:32 pm)
I added fog lights to my 2006 Lacrosse, I changed out the switch in the dash with one for the fog light option. and installed the DOT approved OEM fog lights to the front fascia. I just need to know where the harness is located to power the fog lights

Thanks for the great advice, spicoli2!
The low beams on my '05 Lacrosse wouldn't come on last night, either automatically or with the knob set to on, but the high beams worked fine. Both lamps had been replaced in the past couple of years, and I could see that the fuses were good.
I found your post and the positive feedback from others, and just got back from Advance Auto Parts with working low beams, thanks to you and a $35 replacement HDM relay module.

I just wanted to thank you for your solutions posting. The HDM was the issue and was easily replaced. Who knows how much money and trouble I saved attempting to replace a light bulb, (which I already know is a b#$%h to do) or getting raped by the stealorship. Thanks again, spicoli2!!!
#100 of 102 Instrument Panel went Dim while driving daytime
Nov 25, 2013 (9:22 pm)
Driving my 2005 Buick Lacrosse CXS today at 4:00 pm the Instrument Panel that displays Mileage and the Radio Display that shows Time, Music Selection all went dim for about 10 minutes then returned to normal, and went dim again. Any suggestions??? Thanks

The most likely occurance was that the headlights came on and switched the settings to night, controllable by the dimming switch. Then the ambient brightness went up and the headlights turned off putting the panel lights into the daytime brightness setting.
Look down through the windshield to find the little light sensor that controls the auto headlights. Sometimes people lay things on the dash over the sensor. Sometimes the sensor doesn't "see" sunlight because of the sun angle, heavy clouds, overpasses, tunnels, and turns on the night lights.

Thanks "imidazol97" for your response, I will keep a check on the fwy overpasses and driving directions during the daytime.
