Question about 2004 Buick Century

1 Answer

Headlights will not come on, but will come on with sensor

I have a 2004 Buick Century with automatic headlights that come on when the sensor tells them to come on. Now, however, when I pull on the headlight knob, the headlights will not come on or if it is dark and the sensor already has the lights on, the headlights will go off. Regular beam and high beam work. What is the problem and how can it be fixed?

    i have the same problem now, my lights wont come on by themselves, but when i hold in the turn signal the highbeams will come on.

    I have almost the same problem. The headlights worked yesterday morning; overnight they suddenly stopped working. They will not come on with the sensor or the light switch. Fuses are intact. All the other directional lights and side markers work. Just no headlights.

Believe it or not, when I turned the hi beams on and off the low beams started working again. Fixed (for now at least).

To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

Where is automatic light switch on my 2004 buick rainer cxl model suv


There is no switch, they are automatic. There is a sensor mounted on the top of dashboard that senses light, which tells headlights to turn on.

1999 buick century. headlights won't come on automatically. Nor will they come on when pulling out the headlight knob. Bright lights will turn on if I hold (and continue to hold) the turning signal switch....


Sounds like you don't have power to the switch or the auto switch.When you pull on the turn switch you are just flahing the high beams.Almost all gm's will do that.Would try and check fuses or get a wiring digrahm and see were the power comes from to feed the switch.If you work on apliances its about the same.Well good luck

How do I change the headlight in my 1999 Buick Century?


There are two retainers that pull straight up that attach the lamp assembly to the car. You will see them when you open the hood at the back of the headlight. See owners manual.
