SOURCE: 2006 Buick Lecerne airbag light stays on

The Air Bag light is indicating it see's something wrong with the system.
Go to you local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and have them scan for codes. They will do the scan at no cost to you.
Let me know what the codes are and we can go from there.
Regards,

Code PO442 means you have a small leak in your evap system. Codes PO452 & PO453 refer specifically to the fuel thank.

Although it will be a good idea to change your gas cap, I don't think it is where your problem is coming from.

I would check the vacumm hoses for loose fitting or small cracks.

Specially if you had your car worked on recently.

Good luck

SOURCE: check engine light came on. computer found code P

1457 is a leak in the charcoal canister or its plumbing system. my money says its in your plumbing. clogged/disconnected lines.

really though, the 1457, could be anything in your evap emmissions system. canister purge solenoid, 2 way bypass valve, fuel tank pressure sensor, canister vent shut valve, alot of rubber hoses, alot of hard plastic lines, evap canister, etc,etc,ect,etc.blah, blah,blah.

a good DIGITAL multimeter and vacuum pump will ease your pinpointing.

im not sure if haynes or helms carry the info on troubleshooting this problem, but, if they do, it'll be good as a reference map.

PS: my problem was with the two way valve.

I have a 2006 Buick Lucerne V6 code po128 comes up. What does it mean?


P0128 BUICK P0128 BUICK - Engine Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature Repair Importance Level: 3/3 Repair Difficulty Level: 2/3 help.jpg Share facebook.png twitter.png linkedin.png google-plus.png sep.png print.png pdf.png share.jpg 3 comments.png ' Add Comment xicon.jpg http://www.autocodes.com/p0128_buick.html Forum Code Possible causes - Leaking or stuck open thermostat
- Low engine coolant level
- Insufficient warm up time
- Faulty engine coolant temperature sensor
- Engine coolant temperature sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine coolant temperature sensor circuit poor electrical connection
help.jpg What does this mean? Tech notes If cooling system is not leaking and the fluid level is OK, replacing the thermostat usually takes care of the problem.
help.jpg What does this mean? When is the code detected? If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects the calibrated amount of air flow and engine run time have been met, and the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) has not met the minimum thermostat regulating temperature, the code P0128 will set. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0128 Buick Description An Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor monitors the temperature of the coolant. This input is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) for engine control and as an enabling criteria for some diagnosis. The air flow coming into the engine is accumulated and used to determine if the vehicle has been driven within the conditions that would allow the engine coolant to heat up normally to the thermostat regulating temperature. If the coolant temperature does not increase normally or does not reach the regulating temperature of the thermostat, the diagnostic that use ECT as enabling criteria may not run when expected.

Regarding which thermostat to use, I am guessing it depends on where you live.

Ask these people when you order the thermostat.

Check engine light


You must connect an ODB-II code reader to determine what codes are stored (which will also indicate what has failed in your car that caused the Check Engine light to illuminate). Once you have repaired the defects, the ODB-II code reader may be used to reset the stored code condition.

I need to see the order of the cylinders to replace the ignition coils in a 2006 buick lucerne v8


The 4.6 engine should be the same as Cadillac, so the odd cylinders are next to the windshield. Number 3 would be second from the passenger side.

Ck engine light stays on and remains on after starting ,but goes out after driving aabout 2 blocks.Also experiencing some engine knock as with low octane fuel. Engine is 3.8 lt. 2007 buick allure...


Although your check engine light goes out on its own, the error code is still stored in the memory of the vehicle computer, so you should take it to your local auto parts store and have the code read. That should give you a good place to start troubleshooting.

Although some mechanics would give you a list of parts you can buy and install, most of the parts you would replace would not be needed. It is better to do a little troubleshooting before you throw parts at it - and cheaper!
