Make sure that you do not have an over rated fuse protecting that circuit, if you do replace it accordingly

Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.

SOURCE: 93 buick century -turn signals

The Buick Century uses separate relays for the hazard warning and turn signal functions. The turn signal relay is located on the accelerator pedal bracket, and the 4-way flasher relay is located on the convenience center near the left kick panel. Try switching these two relays with one another to see if your turn signals work instead of your 4-ways.

SOURCE: Heater/AC Fan does not work in our 1998 Buick Century

Fan will be under dash on passengers side , Removing glove box might be needed, Gm also uses a blower resister ro control fan speeds. First check your fuse and then check and make sure your getting 12 volts to the terminal at the blower, You could have a blown fuse, a bad switch, or a bad resister , if your getting voltage to blower motor then most likely it will be the motor. These are not to difficult to change. I hope this helps, please be aware I can only guess at what the problem is from my past experience.

Time to change the flasher unit, it's usually close to the drivers side of vehicle and behind a fuse box access panel and will have something like "12v 23/98W " on it. It's a largish cube shaped componant and may be water damaged !

Turn signal light staying on in front driver side and back turn signal light blinking too fast on driver side in back. All bulbs good.


Double check your front drivers side bulb sounds to me like the bulb is bad. It may look ok but could be bad. You might try swapping bulbs between the right and left front lights to test it. If the problem moves to the other side then you've found your problem. Good luck.
