If you are talking about the factory anti-theft system, the only thing it does is prevent the engine from cranking and sound the horn if someone opens a door without using the key.

SOURCE: odometer indicator not working for

More than likely it sounds like the lcd is bad and needs to be replaced, from what i understand if you take it to the dealer they will pull the miles from either your engine or from the eeprom from your cluster and then order you a refurbished one and set the proper mileage on it. I think i was quoted about 300 for parts and about 80 dollars for 1 hour worth of labor.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

SOURCE: how do I change the fuel filter in a 1999 Buick Century Custom?

Philly, the fuel filter is attached to the frame in front of the gas tank, under the driver side of the car. You must relieve the pressure in the fuel line before you start, and it is also recommended that you disconnect the neg. battery cable. After disconnecting the neg. cable, remove the gas cap. Next, look under the hood on the fuel rail for a shrader valve (like the type on a bicycle tire). Place a rag under the valve, remove the cap, and press the valve in with a plastic pen to relieve the pressure in the line. You can now go under the car to remove the filter. You can disconnect the fuel lines easily with an inexpensive plastic disk made for this purpose (only a few $ for several sizes at a parts store). Be careful of fuel in the line that will drain out, no smoking or sparks during this procedure. Should be 1 bolt securing filter to frame. Note arrow on new filter, and install in the correct direction. Replace cap on shrader valve, put gas cap back on, reconnect battery cable. The low coolant light is probably a faulty sensor signaling that it's low, when it's actually ok. Look for wires coming from the reservoir bottle, you should be able to find the sensor at the end of the wires to replace it. If you change the fuel filter in a garage, leave the door open for air circulation, gas fumes can explode easily, having the door open will help dissipate the fumes.

Odometer does does not work on 2001 century buick


If the numbers are still working, it may just be a bulb. Get a kid to go under the dash and see if he can see the back of the console. It will be plastic with wires going to various places in it. Those places usually are the lights. Figuring out which is the right place takes communication and time. With the parking lites on, the bulb that is not lit in the likely place is probably the one you're looking for.
Buy the kid ice cream. He'll need a small flashlight.

My low coolant light comes on my 2001 Buick Century and its filled to proper level.


Go to a dealer service department and buy a new coolant level sensor and install it in your overflow tank. A parts store is unlikely to have one unless all GMs use the same part.
