Remove cover from rear of trunk to access nuts. Remove tailight all 4 nuts. Pull tailight out. You will see the bulb sockets behind the tail light assembly. Turn counter clockwise to remove socket. Install same way.

SOURCE: panel light does not come on in 1999 buick lasabre

Have you checked the fuses (driver side, next to your left knee)? If so, make sure they're the correct amperage -- especially the fuses in the 6C, 8C, and 9C positions. 6C should be 25 (amps) and 8C & 9C should both be 10 amps.

Also, the headlights on that car are designed to be on all the time, day or night, with two exceptions:

  • If the car is in "Park" you can manually slide the little tab that's located on the dash, just left of the steering wheel, all the way left and that will temporarily shut them off, or
  • If the car is not running
That same tab adjusts the sensitivity of the "is-it-dark-enough-for-me-to-turn-on-the-taillights-and-panel-lights-yet?" sensor -- the farther left that tab is, the less sensitive the sensor is; all the way right means "really sensitive" -- try moving it all the way to the right (if it's not already).

Right above that tab is another tab that adjusts the brightness of the panel lights. If that tab is moved all the way to the left (which basically turns the panel lights off), it's possible that the panel/tail lights are actually coming on at night automatically but that you wouldn't be able to tell exactly when/if that took place because the brightness would go from "nothing" ("daytime status") to "still nothing" ("nighttime status but with the brighness all the way down"). However that tab does not control the brightness of the stereo so you'll never see any change there.

Long story short, if all the fuses are in good shape, try moving both tabs all the way to the right. :)

Hope that helps... If it doesn't solve the problem, maybe you (or whoever reads this) learned something new...??? ;) Either way, good luck!

SOURCE: Tail light bulb installation for

In the rear of the trunk you will find several plastic wing-nuts that hold the liner and the light housings to the rear panel. Remove these, pull out the housing, the bulb scockets twist out after releasing the locking tab [ push on lock to center of scocket to release ]. When reinstalling housings to panel make sure rubber sealing washers on the studs are there or water will leak into trunk. good luck.

How do i replace the rear turn signal bulb on a 1998 buick lesabre?


There are usually only 2 ways to replace tail lights -- either unscrew the lens from the outside if there are screws showing, or, (more likely with this older model), open trunk, find the access panel and remove it, then reach in and unscrew the light socket by turning 1/2 turn counterclockwise.

Need to replace rear brake light on a 1999 Buick Park Avenue. How do I remove the plastic lenses or assembly?


you will need to open the trunk and remove the carpet covering the inside where the tail lights are, find 2 or 3 nuts which are probably 8 or 10 mm,so use a socket and ratchet,remove the nuts and pull the tail light asembly out from the back and you will find the tail light bulb sockets. release the little latch/lock clips while turning the socket assembly about 1/4 turn counter clockwise and you can check each bulb. watch where the wire harness for each socket and also the tail light assembly is so you dont pinch or damage the wires when putting the tail light assembly back in. your owners manual may also give you these instructions and will tell you the correct bulbs to use for tail, brake and turn signal lights.

The parking lights and tail lights on 96 lasabre went out , I can't get them to work again . All the fuses are good .


relays under the hood to? if those are good and bulbs are good , then I'd think a grounding problem. you can run a new wire to one of the lights and ground it to good clean metal and see if thats the problem? a12 volt test light (buy cheep one for under $5.00) and see if you have power to the bulb socket? richie
