#64 of 123 NO SOUND
Jul 01, 2010 (6:51 am)
I have a 2000 Buick Century with a six speaker sound system. For several weeks I would get a crackling noise from 1 to 3 of the speakers even if the volume was turned down completely. Then it would quit and all was fine for a while. The problem occurred whenever I hit bumps in the road. Sometime the speakers would fade in and out. Eventually the sound stopped. The radio would come on fine, just no sound. I installed a new radio, still no sound. Any ideas as to the cause and fix?

They don't have drain plugs, GM figures it cost too much. Some gm cars
don't even have
a dipstick for the trans. The last time I had my pan off I welded
plug in. Changing trans fluid is a big mess any way you go about it. My kids Saturn has a drain plug & a spin on filter. I guess that made too much since so gm's answer was to quit making the Saturn. I thought they had a decent product with Century and Lasaber but they got dropped. Same way with S10.
#68 of 123 fuse box query
Jul 10, 2010 (3:15 pm)
I have a 2002 Buick Century that will not start. My friend has looked at it and checked the fuses themselves and says that they are good. He believes the problem is something to do with the the fuse box itself going bad. Can this happen? He knows more about cars then I do but this has both of us stumped. Something about an electrical low? (not sure about this part) We've tried putting it on a charger but I don't believe its the battery. We've tried jumping and still nothing.

I had a similar problem that turned out to be the chip on the key. I used the spare set of keys and it worked fine.
#70 of 123 Help!! no lights
Jul 16, 2010 (8:37 am)
I have a 1995 Century Wagon 3.1L engine. Took it out to store got home the autolocks quit working.Took it back out at another store started it up and my headlights didn't work my tail lights,brake lights,hazzard lights,horn,courtesy lights are out. The radio and clock won't stay set resets everytime you start it. I have turn signals and back up lights thats it. All went down at the same time. Had to replace two 5 amp fuses still not coming on. I replaced the headlight switch still nothing. Just put in a new relay switch still nothing. I got a conuinity tester checking back of fuse boxes every wire I can find still nothing. Any other ideas. I had a transmission replaced about 3 and half months ago. Is it possible it is a fusable link off of the starter. I have dash lights and it runs down the road. Any ideas any other tests or places to look let me know. Tested the alternator not that either. Don't know what else to do. I have a lot of money in this car and can't afford to take it in at the present time. Please any help would be appreciated.
