Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre

'92 Buick Lesabre radio & A/C won't work

I pushed in my cigarette lighter the other day, and my A/C, radio, door ajar dinging & lighter no longer work. It has happened before, and I just replaced the fuse that blew. This time, I checked all the fuses and none were blown. When the door is open, I can hear a very faint dinging, but not the same as I normally hear when everything is working properly.

    I KNOW I checked this fuse...I checked all of them. I think you had some telepathic senses that went straight to my #11 fuse and made it blow right before I looked last night. Problem solved! Woohoo!

Door dings and radio won't shut off

It is likely the door ajar switch is defective in the drivers door, the switch is attached to the door latch in most cars these days and the door panel must be removed to replaced it. The system is controlled by a computer and that can be tested for faults by the dealer to avoid guess work, I recommend you have the diagnostics done 1st before any parts are replaced.

Could you tell me where the fuse is for cigarette lighter on 1998 Buick park ave.

It is located in the fuse box inside car. However, many GM vehicles share fuses with multiple devices. The radio fuse may also operate the cigarette lighter, and so on. My 1991 LeSabre shared fuses. Check fuses to see if any are blown.

92 buick lesabre, all interior lights, radio, seet belt tone im guessing

First of all, you had a short in the electric system that included your cigarette lighter. When you saw the spark, you saw the result of a short. What you are experiencing now is a bad ground in the system.

This is what we refer to as stray voltage, which is why your lights are staying on. This is not aa fuse problem. If you haven't unplugged your cigarette lighter, do so. You are going to need the services of an automotive electrian to solve this problem. The reason your cigarette lighter may have been unplugged is that someone else knew of the existing problem.
