Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre
I have a 2003 Buick Lesabre Custom and got two rear window regulators repaired yesterday. On the way back home from car repair, I braked and the car suddenly shaked, then ABS warning light was on. I turned off the engine and restarted it, the ABS light was off, but when I brake, the car still shakes and it seems the right rear tire is locked up. It took me some effort to drive home and park into lot. I try to check emergency brake, it was released. What happened to my car and can I drive to a nearby car repair under this condition?
If you are unable to fix yourself, than yes you can drive it to local shop. You still have front brakes working.
If you can repair yourself start by removing rear tire than brake drum and look for broken parts. Most likely they will fall out when you remove drum.
Replace worn or broken parts which are inexpensive for your car.
Check for leaking fluid from broken break lines and check fluid level under hood. Keep me informed N I'll help. Paul

had exact same problem and had a drive shaft (????) extension replaced. This item moves in and out when the engine rotates under torque. If not able to move correctly you get this vibration. Only needed to replace the one on the driver's side - other side okay, but it was maddening that you could get the car to vibrate at 35 to 45 mph but at no other speed.

Check to see if you have a lot of dirt in the throttle body. Clean the throttle blades out with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. You'll see alot of dirt come out. Keep spraying until it comes out fairly clear and wipe the throttle body out with a rag. If this doesn't do it, you may have a problem with the throttle position sensor (TPS). This sensor controls the idle after the car warms up and keeps it from dying when you brake or sit at idle.

The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!

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
