#100 of 123 instrument panel lights / tail lights out
Nov 06, 2011 (10:13 am)
I have a 2003 Buick century, which for the past couple weeks has been driving me crazy with blown bulbs. First was the back up lights, replaced those, then tail lights, replaced those (one by one), then brake light. I eventually replaced every bulb in the rear light cluster. Now instrument panel and all tail lights out, found the bad 15 amp fuse replaced it and still no lights. When everything started I did notice a hairline crack in the tail lens which was allowing water to get into the tail lens and corrode the bulb housings. I sealed the crack and checked for any damaged wiring however other than a little corrosion which i cleaned, nothing. Please help I'm pulling my hair out. I'm pretty sure its a short in the wiring however electrical wiring diagrams are like french to me. PLEASE PLEASE tell me any advise on where you think I should start looking for the short. Thanks

This problem just happened in my vehicle too. I was wondering if you would happen to know the part number or what the part is called?

I tried that on my 1998 Buick Century and and nothing happened. Could you be more specific such as when to insert the ignition key, and what position to set it to?
#107 of 123 Brake light and Fuel gauge light stays on

After changing tail light and turn signal bulbs, my 2002 cedntury started up but the stalled. I tried to start it again and now it won't even turn over. The security light does not stay on, but my brake light and fuel light stay on and i know I have fuel in it, but along with the light staying on it also stays on E. Any help would be great

I had this problem with my 2001 Century. After checking everything I coud think of and replacing many fuses, I accidently found the cause of the problem.
While opening my trunk with the lights on after just replacing a fuse, the fuse blew again, but in the darkness of the trunk I caught a glimpse of a electrical spark near the right side trunk hinge.
I found the problem. The wiring harness retainer does not allow enough slack in the harness where it comes into the trunk lid from the body. The wiring eventually breaks from flexing at that point. The wires then short together knocking out taillights, and all dash and control panel lighting.
I got many outrageous repair quotes and suggested solutions before stumbling on the simple answer to this problem.
I hope this helps you even though your post was a while back. Maybe it will help others too.
