The TDM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it will get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

SOURCE: Where is the low coolent

The low coolant level sensor for 2000 Buick Century is placed on the radiator, below the cap. The coolant level sensor BWD Part No.# S8122

You do have to drain some coolant to replace the level sensor. It is located in a port at the top third of your radiator, so if you remove it you will lose approximately 1/3 of your coolant very quickly. Shop manual says to drain coolant from the radiator below the level sensor port. Draining one gallon is more than enough. Very easy to install, at most a pair of needle nose pliers for the retainer ring.

Low coolant level light ON, but coolant level is fine on 2000 Buick Century
Your low coolant light goes on and you've checked the coolant level. It's right on the money. Suspecting a faulty sensor, you decide to replace it.
STOP.
If your vehicle has the 3.1 or 3.4 engine and you've had the intake manifold gaskets replaced, or if you've added sealer to the system, you may have contamination on the sensor. This will also happen when you have put radiator stop leak compounds in the radiator. They gunk up at the sensor, and eventually make the coolant light come on.
To confirm that this is the problem, remove the sensor and clean it with a wire brush. Then sand with emory cloth. The sensor should be shiny. Reinstall and see if the problem goes away. If it does, you will have to flush the cooling system to get rid of the contamination. Or, clean the sensor when it gets contaminated.

tdisline_41.jpg

The low coolant light is more likely a bad sensor level problem.
The low coolant light came on. Fluid levels could reveal no proplems. Then had engine oil change and the light will came on intermittently, but no signs of overheating, fluid leaks, etc. Guage could be nearly pegged, but not completely. If the engine immediatelly return to normal temperature, but the heater blew cool air could this be a thermostat problem.

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

Car only starts in neutral?


I was first going to say the problem is the neutral safety switch, but based on what you said about it being stuck in drive and the shifter can be moved around, I would say the cable is broke or a connector on either end of the cable. The cable connects the shifter with the shift lever on the side of the transmission.
The shift lever is probably under the master cylinder on the driver side.

Buick Century 2000 gear shifter moves freely will not start


Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

Have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid. I can't get the shifter on the column to move out of park even when I move the steering wheel up,down & side to side. Is it the cable, the link, what?


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

Gear shift stuck in park


there is a u shaped clip that holds handle on stem, pull that and then pull handle off and then push down on the white stick that is in center of shifter and see if it can move out of park then, also make sure your foot is on brake ! if that that does'nt work then there is a little solenoid down by shifter that has to move when you put foot on brake so's that it will let you shift it (safety device) it may be bad or bad connection.

2000 Durango ran fine, parked, satrated and it


well a number of things could be wrong with this, first check the fluid levels to insure that there is fluid in your transmision, next check to ensure that the shifting bar from the gear shifter is connected to the gear box controler, normally it is a bar that goes down by the steering colume, try getting a person in the driver seat and moving the gear seletor and make sure everything is moving that looks like it should, if a monting brace for this is broken it won't work

The gear shifter handle moves but the van stays in park . The gear shifter handle on the steering colum, will move up and down very loosely. The indicater for park, reverse, neutral, and drive will move to...


there is a cable attached to your transmission that is actuated with that lever. the cable has come disconected or has broken. open your hood and look for cable on top of your transmission to see if it is worn.broken ect. helps to have somebody move lever while u locate it if you are not sure what you are looking for.
