Where is the circuit breaker located on this car. I only have an owners manual thats it. We are getting blasted with snow and wind and freezing temps. I started the car a few times yesterday now she won't start got to get a jump. So am stalled at the moment. I am out here checking wires and bulbs and fuses with a tester. I do not have a volt meter however and no lights. Can't even get it to the parts store to see if one of them can check it. Thank you by the way for helping out appreciate it very much.

Sorry to hear about all the bad weather and all the bad luck. I'm not familiar with the 95 but it doesn't sound to me like breakers, fuses, and bulbs are your problem. I'm thinking more like cables, grounds, bonding straps, and cable connections. To effectively trouble-shoot electrical problems these days a person pretty much needs some instruments to work with. Maybe its time to get some outside help. Good luck.

My dash lighting was out along with the rear running lights. While lights were on and car running at night I popped my trunk and opened it past 20 or 30 degrees it blew the fuse. It's a 15 amp fuse that supplies lighting to the 2 items mentioned. Haven't bothered to locate short. I just pull the fuse when I need to get use trunk. Hope it helps you or some in future. (keep spare fuses in car just in case)

No, but I got it fixed. It was a fuse. I thought it could have been the switch. I replaced ther 5 amp fuse with a 10 amp.

#53 of 123 1999 Century Headlights blink on and off

When driving along in the evening the headlights occasionally blink on and off. I turned on the headlight switch thinking it was the sensor but it still does it. Any thoughts? Thanks, jmurray171

It may be a loose or bad bulb.

I am on my third battery at this point same year 95 buick century wagon when I first got the car the dome light was very hot and I just took out the bulb and didn't mess with it. Noticed though that when I turn something else on my dash lights would dim a little then go back. My car is still down and you can read my other entries let me know if you have come up with anything. Hope I helped.

Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your 1995 Buick Century? I have almost the same exact thing happening with mine right now. I did not change the starter but did replace a fender and did some headlight work due to an accident. Now the ABS light is on and most of the items you identify don't work for me either. They did work for a couple of days after the repair work was done and then went out.
