My wife's car is a 2000 Buick Century, the interior lights and the trunk light do not work! All fuses are O.K., everything else is working, radio, windows etc. Has it got a inline fuse that I'm missing?

As far as i know, the reverse lights are built into the trunk lid
If so, open the trunk, and unscrew all the nuts from inside the trunk lid that hold the rear light assembly in place.
Once undone the light assembly should pop offf from the outside of the trunk lid, then you can access the bulbs, and get a new one at the auto oarts store
if you have the owners manual it should give proper amp and location of fuses otherwise check both sides of each fuse with a test light for power when you find the one with power only on one side remove and replace that fuse the lighter fuse should have power with key off some fuses need key on to light up at all and some will need items such as headlights turned on to light
If the lights stay off, don't go on and off randomly, and include ceiling, glove box and door lights, it is most likely a fuse. These are located behind a plastic panel on the body that can be accessed when you open the front passenger door. The fuse descriptions should be on the inside of the panel. (There is a second fuse box under the hood inside a black box with a red handle and screw hold down). Find the appropriate fuse (interior lights or something like that) and using a fuse puller (little plastic tweezer device that grabs the fuse and makes it easy to remove) pull the fuse and hold it up to the light. If the metal strip inside is broken, melted or blackened, you need a new one of the same amp rating. There may be some extra ones on the panel, but never use a fuse with a higher rating number than the original fuse.
Your interior lights fuse is powered by the tail/park lamp fuse, that way you know when your parking lamps are not working. Your interior lights probably went at the same time, but you noticed them first. Most likely, you have a blown park/tail lamp fuse. Check the fuse first, replace it if it's open. If it blows again, you have a short in the park lamp circuit.
two places left drivers side under the dash are on the side of the dash by the door for the interior, some cars have them on the right side of the dash also. There is also another fuse box under the hood. If you have your owners manual this is all listed in it, and the exact fuse location for your breaklights, I think your will be on the drivers side interior Hope this helps you! Merry Christmas and God Bless!
