SOURCE: 95 Buick Century dash removal?

you should not have to remove the dash to install a new radio all you have to do is remove the trim around the radio and then take out the bolts that hold the radio in and remove the wires from the back and also if there is a Walmart or Radio Shack near you get an installation kit and you plug it from the plugs from your old radio and it is alot easier to wire it that way

sounds like a dirty idle speed control valve.

To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: I have a 97 buick

it could mean that the starter is bad, but it could also be something easy like a loose connection on the battery a bad battery wire, or a dead battery indicating the alternator may not be functioning
you stated that you have been having problems starting it, I am assuming that it was really slow cranking over which is why you replaced the battery. if this is the case then you are probably in need of a starter.
hope this helps

2003 buick century won't start. Ignition switch goes clickety-clickety. Can still lock doors and the lights come on. Noticed the "check engine" light but don't know if it would stay on...

Just because the battery has enough power to operate the lights and door locks does not mean it would pass a load test. If the battery checks out OK then check the battery cables. use one side of a pair of jumper cables to bypass each cable starting with the negative cable. if the vehicle now starts, replace the cable. The positive cable is harder to check using this method. attach one end of the jumper cable to the starter terminal making sure that the end of the jumper cable is not touching the engine and then attach the other end to the positive terminal of the battery. If sparking occurs when this end is connected then the jumper cable is touching ground and must be repositioned. If the problem still exists then the most likely cause is the starter solenoid. Always wear safety glasses when working around a battery.

Where is the starter located on the 95 buick century its a 4 cyl and i have no idea what it looks like

For 1995 Buick Century the starter is located in the front of the engine near the transmission bell housing.

To remove, disconnect the battery negative, mark and note where the different wires go on the starter terminals, remove the wiring from the starter, then remove 2 x 14mm bolts that hold the stater in place, slide the starter out an down, reverse to install.

Hope this helps (remmeber to rate and comment this answer).

Hi my 2001 Buick century will not turn over why did this happen even after trying a boost did not make it turn,,car did not have any problem in the pass just happen this morning what would cause this not...

The most common cause is a bad battery or corroded battery connections to the battery. Try to loosen and re-tighten the battery terminals at the battery. It helps when you have your headlights turned on. So that you can see if the headlights get brighter when your tightening the terminals. I hope this helps :)

2003 Buick Century won"t start--can hear the clicking under the engine.

If you can hear clicking under the hood, my guess is corroded battery terminals. Use water and some baking soda. Pour on terminals AFTER you disconnect them. Don't spill on your paint and rinse well. Next check the cables for wear and for a corroded ground wire to the frame. Check the cables at the starter. Then make sure your battery has 12V DC. If all good, look toward starter solenoid or starter itself.

1998 buick century-electrial all work but when turn key like dead

Sometimes there will be just enough corrosion on the battery terminals to allow for low draw items such as the radio but not enough contact for the most heavy draw item, the starter. Start by cleaning the terminals. Also jumping of another car to the battery cable ends will tell you if the terminals connections are compromised.
