Question about 1998 Buick Century
This has been a problem for almost 2 years. was told it was a bad relay switch. is this the only solution?
I have had this problem for over a year and a half and the middle/bright lights can be cut on,but i have to hold the switch in to keep them on. The parking lights stay on all the time,so i assume it's a "running" setup. I've had the light "switch" replaced for about $450 and then the guy tells me..."oh,it's the "relay" that needs to be replaced",but releases the car to me as if it's ready to go?? The fuse is still good,but not sure about the bulb. Guess you can't assume a crooked mechanic is going to check that,right??
anyway,thanks for the input.

Well its possible a fuse, relay or your bolbs are out. usually when on bolb goes notice the other gets all the current for both and gets really bright and shortly after blows out. Does the running lights come on when you turn on your regular head lights? the thing about these features is they can be changed on perpus or accidently buy a certain combination of switches and buttons. auto on lights can be made to work manually only. unlocking a driver door with on click and not unlocking the other car door locks and also be changed to unlock all the door at once with one click.

SOURCE: no headlight or tail lights
my tail lights on a 2002 buick regal do not go on when lights are on, I changed a couple of the bulbs still nothing, brakes lights and backup lights work.... also the inside dash lights do not work could it be a related problem,

At my shop we have a product from Ever-Wear, it is a headlight restoration kit, do it on the car and works great. Did one light on my car and left the other one foggy as a demo. Great Product

the fuse box you are looking for is under the dash on the passenger side, you will need to remove the plstic kick plate then look up and a little to the right,you might have to remove three screws located along the rear edge of the panel, when you have the cover off in the upper left hand corner of the fuse box you are looking for a fuse that is marked [ SBM ] this fuse is for you interior lights, there should be extra fuses, in the second row second from the bottom and the third row second rfom the top, you'll know their spares if they pull out really easy and have no metal connectors inside the slots you just pulled them out of.

Headloght switch or dimmer HI-Lo switch is what I would look at. The power to the headlights goes through the dimmer switch before it gets to the bulbs. No relay!
