I am thinking that the brake lamps in the rear taillamps went through the turn signal/hazzard switch. Play with your hazzard switch and see if they start working. If not, check the brake lamp switch with a test light. I believe the high mount stoplamp had a seperate wire than the taillamps for brake lights.

SOURCE: How do I disassemble the dash and steering column

Here is what I learned without a manual. (You may find that you have to use the tilt mechanism to move the steering wheel up and down in the process to gain access to fasteners)
1. Remove plastic pins on underside of the upper dashboard. About 7 of these that can be pried out with a large flat screwdriver. Careful to catch them all and keep both pieces.
2. Remove the lower dashboard trim panel and set aside.
3. Using a small Torx head driver remove all the torx fasteners along the upper instrument panel.
4. Remove the side panel cover on the driver's side (the cover that the fusebox cover pops into). This side cover is held in place at 3 slots, and needs slid down slightly as you remove it.
5. Unscrew the phillips head screw that you see connecting to the instrument panel face.
6. Go to the passenger side and repeat steps 4 and 5.
DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE MAIN DASH PANEL YET
7. On the drivers side, gently pull the main dash panel out a little ways and disconnect the plug to the light switch.
As I remember the main dash fascia panel is ready to be removed now. The A/C vents will come out with it. Make sure all the fasteners are removed from the top. Gently pry out the bottom, and then slide it down and remove it. Hint: Place the steering wheel in the fully tilted down position. Hint 2: You can lift up on the upper dashboard pad to assist in clearing all the top mounting tabs.
7. Using a 10 mm socket or torx, depending on your car, remove the bolts that hold the lower dash panel on the driver's side(These bolts are above your shins when seated in the driver's seat.)
8. Using a 10 mm socket remove the bolts that hold the top two corners of the lower dash panel (One on each side).
9. Unplug the traction control switch.
Disconnect the flexible tubing on the right side (just pull it off the connector) and disconnect the wiring plug that is down a few inches parallel to the flexible tubing. An option here is to pop the whole vent/grille out and leave the tubing and wiring intact.
10. Now you can remove the steering column surround. You need a torx socket, very small to do this...Sorry don't know the size but it was the smalles one in my kit. All fasteners are installed from the underside.
11. Start with the one you can't easily see. It is in the dark recesses by the tilt column lever.
12. Remove the other torx fasteners by accessing them through the holes. If you're socket is too thick or short you will not be able to remove the one in the middle, closes to the dashboard. Your choice, buy a new socket or just break the plastic off around that one.
13. You now have access to the lock cylinder and ignition switch. You will need an even smaller torx head to remove the ignition switch. The lock sylinder is removed by pressing in on the spring loaded release about 2 inches from the keyhole, on the side closest to the dashboard. The key should be in the run position during assembly and disassembly.
14. You can remove the steering wheel for easier access, but you do not have to do so to work on some of the components in the column.

Hope I didn't miss too many steps.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick Riviera SC: traction and the security light

traction switch is located next to drivers left knee on bottom of dash....you should be able to turn off the traction light there by just turning on the traction control.....the security light is telling you that there is a problem with your security system....could just need a new key with a new computer chip....make sure the key is clean and dry when using so it can read the chip....the security light comes on whenever your start the car and stays on for approximatley 2 minutes and then should go out....it is just a reminder....try this and see if it works....lock the door using the power switch on door.....close door and see if the security light comes on....watch and it should go out after about 2 minutes...if it does then your alarm is activated and working....to disarm you need to unlock the driver door with the key...anything else will set the alarm off and the lights will start flashing and the horn honking...after you set the alarm off you will always have to use the key to unlock the drivers door to turn off the alarm and reset the security system.

SOURCE: buick park avenue 1995 blinker/brake/dash lights

I have a 98 Bucik Park Avenue. I recently had it painted and when the body man put the lights back in I began having problems with the brake lights and turn signal lights. Only one brake light lights up and only on signal light lightsup and they are on opposite sides. I have changed the bulbs (all) and I have tested the fuses(All).

Fuse?


I believe your owners manual identifies what each fuse box location and fuse is for. Take a little time to read it and see.

I have a Buick Reveria and my break light always pop up with this dining sound, whats the problem?


Not sure if it's safe. Is it the ABS (anti-lock brake system) light?
Anyway, have it checked ASAP. One thing you could check is your brake fluid level in the brake's master cylinder. Are your brakes normal?

95 riviera dash lights or tail lights dont work


You probably have an open/blown tail/park lamp fuse. The dash light fuse gets power from the tail/park lamp fuse, so when you can't see your dash lights, you'll get the vehicle looked at and find you have no park/tail lamps either. It's a safety feature because otherwise you may never know your running lights are not working.
Check your park/tail lamp fuse.
