Thanks. Not sure if it's really the module, but not a lot of mechanics around to take it to. Guy has already said he can't do the programming.
#181 of 188 ABS and traction off lights
Sep 30, 2012 (10:08 am)
I recently had the power steering gear replaced on a 2001 Lesabre. Now the ABS and traction off lights are coming on. Is there something that was not connected or calibrated that causes the lights to come on? Could something had been damaged when the power steering gear was replaced?
#182 of 188 Gas tank disassembly

I have looked, but can someone please send me detailed instructions on the right way to take off a gas tank on a 1997 Buick Lasabre Limited plz. I have to install a fuel sending unit and that costs 128.00 but Im finding out that the fuel pump for it is purchased separate which cost another 75. This will be a first for me on this car but I have done it on a Beretta.
#184 of 188 1988 LeSabre Fuel Pump Problem
Jan 26, 2013 (5:11 pm)
A friend gave me a 1988 LeSabre that had been sitting for a while, the fuel pump was bad so I replaced it (it was in the tank) and the filter. It ran fine for a couple of months 'till one day I shut it off for about 15 minutes to run in to a store and when I came back out it wouldn't start. The fuel pump was out again. I changed it ( and put a new filter on) in the parking lot and got back on the road. I drove about 3 more hours to get home it did fine the whole way. When I went out the next morning it wouldn't start. I couldn't here the pump pressurize when I turned on the key (usually I can) I put a tester on it and verified that I am getting power to the pump.
I took the two replacement pumps in to return them and when the guy in the store tested them they both worked!
Has anybody ever had something like this have happen before?
What do I check?
The replacement pumps were Airtex if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance.

Although this may be a month late, Have you checked the fuel pump relay? I would also check the grounds for the pump and sending unit. Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem.

Try a local dealer; sometimes they'll help. Otherwise, try Buick customer service. Some companies seem more responsive (Jeep) to build sheet requests, don't know about Buick or GM.
This pay site supposedly has build sheets and you may be able to do a free trial and then cancel. No experience with them though.
#188 of 188 Cruise Control
Aug 12, 2013 (8:04 pm)
My cruise control went out on my 97 Buick LaSabre a while ago. I think it operates on a vacuum but i'm not sure? The vacuum tubes are weak by now but I can not find any good replacement lines or T joints. I tried taping, silicone, and generic solutions that I home manufactured from parts I bought at the parts store but it didn't fix it.
I also have an error code P0107 that I think is vacuum related but has nothing to do with the cruise not working. Any thoughts? I have been experimenting for over a year and have not solved either of these issues. ( I replaced the PCV valve but that did not solve the P0107. )
