#25 of 123 Buick power window problem
Jun 20, 2008 (8:35 am)
I have a 2002 Buick Century and I'm having trouble with one of my power windows. It's the front passenger side, I have replaced the motor and regulator 3 times now in a 12 month period. I have a lifetime warranty on it but they are looking at me funny now when I return it. They seem to think that I'm getting power surges when I use it. I get about 10 uses before it dies. When I do use it, it interferes with the radio, could this be the window relay that is going bad? Is there anyway that I can check to see that the voltage is not spiking to the window motor.
Where is the window relay? any ideas?
#26 of 123 Can I reset my radio and clock without going to a dealer?

The battery cables were disconnected so the anti-theft device is on. Can I go somewhere to get the code so I don`t have to pay the dealership?

hi, im having same problem with my girlfriends car. the window problem is most likely not the switch, its the wires either inside the door or inside the door boot. my problem is the harness coming out of the switch. you can test by prying out switch( pry from the side of the switch that is closest to the front of car) turn key to run, hold up or down on switch and wiggle harness. it should then work intermittently. if thats the case then the conductor (metal inside) is broken or cracked loose etc inside wire insulation. as for the trunk release im troubleshooting that now. i hear relay clicking inside car but am getting no trigger at trunk release. bad relay?

#29 of 123 98 Century Turn Signal
Dec 08, 2008 (11:45 am)
The right front turn signal doesn't work, the rear right turn signal flashes rapidly. The right turn signal on the dash doesn't illuminate but you can hear the rapid clicking sound. I have replaced the bulbs in each. The bulbs and lamps do work if i turn on the hazards.
I believe this is a switch problem and I'm looking for instructions on how to replace it. Any ideas?
#30 of 123 Cluster light not working
Dec 27, 2008 (10:23 am)
I have a 2001 buick century that had the light go out in the area of the cluster where the trip milage is displayed and where the totals miles is displayed.
I was wondering if this is a simple fix or if I need a whole new/used cluster. If a replacment is in order where is the best place to find a good used one for not alot of money. Any other info would be greatly appreciated.\ Thank all.
#31 of 123 Which Fuse is it?
Dec 30, 2008 (6:08 pm)
I have a 1995 Buick Century. The dash lights are out. When I put the headlights on the radio light goes out. Also, the lights showing the door handles and the power locks and windows are out. What fuse do I replace if it is a fuse?

I had a similar problem with my 2000 Century. I checked all my fuses to find that they were good. Replaced the headlight switch (approx. $55) and cured the problem. The switch was a snap to get to on my car. It only took about 10 min. to replace. Good luck.

I have a 1998 Buick Century 3.1L Custom
I am looking for a way to turn off the headlights at night or a way to disable the Automatic Headlights.

I also have a 2000 buick century and when the secutirty light comes on you cars security system thinks that the car is being tempered with this could be your key chip is not being read right or the security system needs to be re trained to read the key the only way to really know which one it is is to take it to a buick dealer and have them run a diagnostic test. All in all your car has a brain and if the brain thinks that the car is trying to be stolen then it will not start.
