Try replacing the seal around the light. You are getting condensation in the light so make sure that the rubber seal on the external light cover is ok, and also the washer on the bulb plug itself is ok.

The bulb in front is somehow not getting voltage. If memory serves, that headlight assy. has a circuit board of some type, and your problem most likely lies there.

I have a slow drain on the battery on a 1996 buick Century, I found if i take out the CSTY fuse the drain stops, Now how do I go about finding the cause of the short?/worn wiring that is slowly draining...


Hi, CSTY is abbrevation for courtesy lamps. They can be interrior lamps in the dome, footwell, inside headspace front and rear, map lights, glove box , door jams/panels , under hood and trunk. First verify that all your lights are going off when the doors are closed and key is off. For trunk and under hood courtesy light, use the push switch to verify they do turn off. (I've had a few under hood lights short out and do that) Next would be to remove bulbs one at a time and monitor your battery. (Painstaking, but effective) other than that, you have a short somewhere, lights in the bottom corners of the doors can get moisture and usually corrode first. Good Luck! Mike

1998 Buick Century Signal Issue


Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.
