No one can give you the answer

You need to put an amp meter on the
car & pull one fuse at a time without
opening any doors & after waiting for
things to got to sleep

That is- if you have more than say 50 milli-amp
all the time that is killing the battery

If you find a circuit at fault- you need the factory wiring
diagrams to proceed- as with all vehicle work or diagnosing
of issues.

    i did that and n othing happin the meatter stayed open at 13.11

    Your using your meter on Volts Have to read Amps in Series to troubleshoot battery drain. If you got 13.11 I hope the car was running because a battery static doesn't read 13 volts unless the alternator is turning

    ok when i boost the car it runs and on the dash the battery reads 15.1 what does that mean

  • Anonymous Jan 21, 2013

    Sound like you got the right proceedure but the red meter lead is not plugged into the 20 amp socket Your need battery is okey but has to be fully charged before you can do any testing & I don't suggest you jump any of todays vehicles from another vehicle as the electronics could be damaged. Always use a battery jump box & never ever jump a dead battery,it could explode The 15 volts is the other cars alternator output

SOURCE: how to install/change complete headlight assembly

Buick Lacrosse - The bright light fitting is the same as the dim so take it apart first to see how the cover screws off/on and the light comes out. Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. If not, then you need to release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin just like you were pulling a nail by the head. That should give you more space.
