Question about Buick Century
My car arlarm never goes off and there is many kids who like to play on it and recently my car tires got slashed. i would like to my car sensitvity level to where if someone bumps the car it goes off. I use to work on my cars alot but never worked with alram systems. I would like to know where the alarm sensor is and how do i get to it and how to i change the level.
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.

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.

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.

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.
