I live in the South and don't recall having used it maybe more than once or twice. I'll take the money and go to the casino to have a little fun. leaving it hooked up or going to the casino, either way it's a gamble.

How about if I take the $100, go to a nearby casino in Oklahoma, win big and with my winnings start up a company that sells good heated units to GM? Well, it's a thought. Seriously, I am going to get it disconnected. Thanks for the info.

Had mine done yesterday. However the $100.00 check comes from GM. No telling how long that will take.

I appreciate everyone taking the time to share their experiences with this problem. I bought my 2006 Lucerne (brand new) in 2007. I suspect, I am fortunate our battery completely died yesterday (first time) and at the house. Interesting that we just had a 50K service 2 weeks ago and the dealer reported no issues with the battery nor any electrical systems. Similar symptoms: No power. No dome lights, no dash lights, cannot open the trunk nor remove the key.
My wife and I really like this car; but, have lost some confidence in Buick for not correcting this problem, nor recommending a trickle charger for a car with demanding energy requirements.
Would appreciate feedback on the final resolution that solved your problem, if solved. I'll do the same.
#45 of 116 06 Lucerne electrical problems/battery

We too have an 06 Lucerne and it just wouldn't start today. No sign of problems before this. Today I drove for 20 miles, shut off the car and it wouldn't start again. We tried to jump start the car but nothing. The battery was so low that the lights wouldn't even come on. The man that tried to jump the car said that the positive on the battery acted like it was not taking a charge. Any solutions? Had to tow the car in to the dealership becuase we could not get it out of park, the wheels were locked up, trunk would not open...
Crowing blow was when the recker picked the car up he just dragged it onto the tow truck. Probably need two new tires now!

My mother in law has a 2006 Lucerne and very frustrated as having the same problem with the battery going dead. She has taken the vehical to several different dealers with no luck.(WI, Florida and Missouri) They kept the car for 4 days on a monitor and could not find anything. Random dead battery can sit for several days or even after an hour.
Thanks for your help

#50 of 116 Odd Problem
Feb 08, 2011 (6:39 am)
I'm experiencing an unusual problem with my 2008 Lucerne. It doesn't get really frigid here in Virginia, but going home from work twice on nights when it was about 35 degrees, the third brake light would stay on after braking and the cruise control wouldn't work.
Has anyone else experienced this?
