Question about Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

I removed a radio from my 1998 buick lesabre and replaced it with another one. Now I have no power to either one. Fuse is good.

I replaced the radio and there was no power. I then checked the fuse and it was good. I then put the old radio back in and it would not power up either. Is there a code that has to be put in after a replacement is made. Why would;t the old radio play? It was playing great until now.

There will be anti theft codes that you will have to put in to get the radios to work . If you do not have the code for the old one then it may be lost to you and the new one ( not second hand ) will have a code in the how to book ( owners manual)

How to replace a fuse ?

Do you even know that you have
a blown fuse?

If you do,are you aware that if you replace
it,it will blow again.

Are you aware that a fuse isn't a repair
or fix for anything. It is just a link in completing
a circuit, that will melt to protect everything
down stream, if a circuit experiences a
high current load

1998 Buick LeSabre horn does not work

First thing to check would be a fuse. After that I would check power and ground with a test light at the horn, when the horn is being applied, if you have power and ground when the horn is being applied, you have a bad horn. If you are missing power or ground, there is an electrical problem to investigate.

Could you tell me where the fuse is for cigarette lighter on 1998 Buick park ave.

It is located in the fuse box inside car. However, many GM vehicles share fuses with multiple devices. The radio fuse may also operate the cigarette lighter, and so on. My 1991 LeSabre shared fuses. Check fuses to see if any are blown.

How to remove the radio from a 2000 Buick lasabre and replace with after market radio ? How to remove the radio?

i have a 1998 lesabre and it might be pretty much the same. first u will have to remove the wood looking trim along the bottom of the dash. it is just held in by clips so carefully pry it off with a screwdriver or something. then remove the vents from the black plastic part of the dash. just turn them to one side and carefully pop them off. after you do this you will be able to find the screws that hold the black plastic trim on. undo those and u can take it off. then just remove the screws holding the radio in and ur good to go. good luck
