Bad abs sensor wheel speed sensors are mostly common. However recommend that you take this vehicle to an Auto_zone they will put it on a code scanner for FREE. Then you will know exactly what the problem is with t=your car. Don't guess and if some say its xyz they are only assuming. get it check by a computer. I can provide further help if needed. Remember when ABS light is on abs is INOPERABLE. Its a vital safety feature especially in wet slippery conditions. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Buick lesabre abs light and traction off light


I would think you have more than one problem. The ABS and traction lights mean those systems are disabled and they work together. So if one is out the other will be too. You probably need to have the systems checked for trouble codes.
As for the no start, if it is a no crank situation you would need to know if the starter has battery power when the key is in the start position. Could be a security problem, the neutral safety switch, or several other possible causes.

I have a 2000 Subaru Outback wagon with approx. 75,000 miles on it...about a week ago my check engine light came on...my gas cap was loose so I tightened it and the light remained on for exactly one week. ...


you can get pop up trouble light going off if the battery is weak or even low ,, have the battery LOAD tested, you could have one cell bad, so it would show 12 volts but not actually the required amps necessary, this would make the alternator work overtime, which would draw from the power it needs to actually run the vehicle

Replacing parts wasn't the way to go

I think your off to the repair shop

The random misfire code & cam sensor code,
was the key

You should be figuring out why they came up

I would suspect a bad timing chain or one of the

1999 Buick century anti lock signal and trac off displayed when traveling over 60 miles per hour


You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.

To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.

Good luck!!

1997 buick century 84500 miles regular maintanance, oil change every 3000 miles. son taking trip in it. never had radiator flushed, plugs changed, transmission fluid changed, should i have concerns on...


Yes, this is very important maintenance procedures. Transmission should be serviced (filter, oil, and oil pan gasket replaced) @ 60K miles, plugs at 100K miles (I'd replace them early for better gas mileage), and radiator flushed @ 60K miles. Hopefully this helps!!

Instrument Cluster Panel out on 2001 buick century


2001 Century just hit 40,000 miles and the engine light has come on. Im wondering if this is an automatic when the car trips at 40K- for a check up or whatever GM wants your money for.

ps - from '89 to 2008 I had been driving Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas - Im driving this car only because I gave my Toyata Rav4 to my daughter and got this Buick from my elderly mother as she no longer drives. Its is amazing what a piece of **** this car is compared to what Im use to. At 40,000 miles you start having the engine light come on - amazing!

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
