Question about 1997 Buick Century

1 Answer

97 Buick Century - Quit running

I was backing up and engin cut off - would not restart. I did have my anti-lock brack light come on when I first started out each morning - then I cut engine off and restarted and light would go off. What kind of electrical system is attached to anti-lock. Have checked fuel flow. OK. Pulled plug and no fire to them. Engine turns over good, but no firing.

My problem is the same as most others. Anti-lock brakes, service engine soon, trac off lights on. Before they would come on intermittemtly bu recently stays on. Called GM last week and was told to take it...


Your anti lock brake light is part of your traction contol lights so that is most likely a wheel sensor and would be a separate problem from your check engine light.
Do you have an auto parts store near by? They can check these codes for free if so

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems


i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
