Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Sticky switch is one son of a b@Cth

I had the same problem as everyone here. This is definitely a money-making design flaw designed to rake in parts and labour money into GM. They must have installed the cheapest component for this headlight switch for it to fail for so many people. The part alone is not cheap and I cannot imagine what Mr. Goodwrench charges to fix it for you probably an extra $100.
The LeSabre cost about $30,000 new and you would think GM would put in parts that last for that kind of cash.
Then they wonder why people are turning away from them.
The mechanic I saw fixed it by pressing down HARD on it. I could not get it to go off myself.
Solution: Just don't use it anymore.

Why does my car use more power when i role the windows up and down the lights dim

electrical power

and what lights dim, there are like 50 lamps in a car.
and many power feeds, not tell the lamp , makes, answers
impossible... see why?

my guess , is the windows guides are old and dry and drag
then the motor has to work harder in the door, so more work
is more amps, and more amps means this exploits weakness
the main power feed to your other lamps. (a problem or a design flaw)

my 1996 car this was a design flaw, so i added heavier wire feeds
to the motor. (all cars that model had this)

Ignition coil keeps burning

Welcome to the world of car repair! Would you please hear this? For the last many years, cars have been designed by people, but before being put into production, they are sent through a process with a computer where parts are designed to last only as long as the warranty, and that makes parts cost less, and the car makers and everyone involved can make more money. ( Read stockholders.)
Some many years ago, the president of GM, when addressing stockholders, said " We are not in the business to make cars, we are in the business to make money".
Were you to own another make vehicle, you would only experience a different set of problems. Sorry.

Can t select multitronic on my Audi a4

This is a common design flaw, one of many with Audi so it seems (I've owned many since my teens). There are two magnets that act as a switch in the shifter gate. These magnets get dislodged and no longer activate the tiptronic mode. I'm dealing with this very issue as well. Audi should have initiated many recalls to have their flawed designs fixed. One that I see often and have experienced my self, is the heater core breaking down, rendering the car practically useless in winters.

3 out my 4 door locks on my 2009 Honda accord quit working. This looks like a major design flaw. How do I fix it?

I'd lean toward the door lock actuators being bad. Unfortunately, on your year model, the acuators are built as an assembly with the door latches. Definitely get a second opinion before dropping money on the parts.

Hole in air conditioner compresser. shouldn't the netal be stronger? Why is there now a grate in front of the new eclipses? Design flaw?

Hole in the Compressor? Thats not a design flaw. You have problems. Do you mean Condenser? If it has a hole in it, you ran over something to cause it.

2002 sebring lxi 3.0. Engine light is on, knocking, rattling, low idle. The thing is just falling apart.

You need to replace the engine, this is a design flaw and if you want to keep the vehicle you should look for a 2005 or newer engine because it will not have that design flaw from 2005 on.

What would cause a s80 to rev on it's own

H,i if it's pre 2003 it's most likely down to a faulty ETM. Magnetti Marelli throttle module has a design flaw. Volvo in Ireland will charge around Euro 1,200.00 to fit another flawed ETM. Mine lasted about 8K miles before it started to hunt.
Pushed hard and got my money back. Get a comfortable chair and Google "Volvo ETM fiasco" Good luck!

My engine light came on after stalling going about 5 miles a hour

Yes, this model has many design flaws and has been redesigned this year and last year. i highly doubt that it was the crankshaft sensor. sounds more like valve timing and spring issues.
