How to change warning light bulbs, 97 Buick Lesabre Ltd

Some of the warning lights on my recently purchased 97 Buick Lesabre Ltd -- across the top of the dashboard -- do not light up when the car is first turned on. This leads me to think that one or more bulbs are burned out. In particular, I do not see a light for the ABS braking system.

These warning lights are displayed under a visor or hood-like plastic shell that runs across the top of the dashboard. I cannot see how the visor is opened or how to get to the warning lights' lightbulbs to change them.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Bulbs do burn out, but the dash will have places that are not always used for all models. i.e. if your car doesn't have ABS that light will not be used. To replace the bulbs you will need to remove the instrument cluster from the dash. its not to hard to do yourself, two phillips screwdrivers and some patience

How do I fix the brake light on a 1997 Buick LeSaber.


I just did a 97 Regal yesterday and yes you are correct...the strip must be removed to gain access...depending on model you may have to remove the cushioning panel (piece of upholstery panel) on the inside of trunk lid...follow this video URL as it explains the removal better in video form than written..basically remove the 7 10mm nuts holding panel on, lower trunk lid a little and wiggle panel off, twist socket and remove to gain bulb access..install is reverse procedure ...Regal, Century and LeSabre are all same idea/setup Tail Light Change 1997 2005 Buick Century 2004 Buick Century Custom 3 1L V6

Rear license plate does not work


My park avenue has star bit screws on both sides of the plate lights right at the top of the license plate holder. I just chaged them last week. I do not know what size the bit was and I am not sure your car is the same. My car looks just like the car in the picture just longer and a little bigger.

How to change tag lights


I had to remove the entire light bar assy by taking every bolt loose to gain access to replace the tag bulbs on my 2000 Buick Lesabre. It is necessary to replace only one bulb so I replaced all bulbs with the new longer lasting bulbs...the bulbs are not expensive just impossible to gain access to them one at a time. It seems like GM made it so you would have to take it into the GM Dealer. A deep well socket makes the task muck easier! Hope this helps!
