Question about 1990 Buick Century

1 Answer

Short circut in the courtesy fuse

I have a 1990 Buick Century.The radio seemed to be the problem first. The volume in one of the speakers seemed to get progressively more and more static. If I changed the volume of the radio the static stayed loud and the music would get louder over it. Then just recently now the radio did not play and all the systems on that fuse do not work (horn, power locks, the radio, interior lights). Each time I place a new fuse in the fuse box it burns up. I tried a 30 fuse and even that burned up.

Remove coins from the cigarette lighter or unplug it. Never put a bigger fuse in than what it calls for tha is a BIG mistake.

Check the radio fuse, The power window relay,and the accessory fuse, something shorted out the window circuit, if it keeps blowing fuses you will have to trace the harness for the short.

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

My 2002 Buick Century keeps blowing out the 20a fuse for the door locks. This dosn't happen right away but maybe the second or third time I use the remote switch.

The circut is being overloaded.I beleive the cigarette lighter,the power mirrors and maybe the trunk release is connected to this circut.If there are any problems with any of these items the use of the doorlocks will overload it.GM always had problems with their cigarette lighters shorting.If none of these items are faulty.Have the door lock solenoids checked
