2002 buick century brakes will lock after it has been parked for 5 min or 5 hrs and will not move until I go from forward to reverse several time. Intermittent but frustrating.


While I don't have a specific solution to your complaint, I did find a site that lists many, many service bulletins related to braking problems on the 2002 Buick Century. Why not take a look to see if any of these complaints sound like yours.

My 1998 buick centry locks up the brakes when i reverse. only in reverse, and only when i touch the brakes. it will reverse fine till i hit the brakes then all wheels lock. this does not happen in dri


Are you sure it is all 4 wheels locking up? I have a 1998 Century and had the same problem, it is due to moisture getting on the rear brake shoes, this makes them "stick" to the drum cold and lock the wheels, the newer brake shoe friction material has been improved to avoid this so called "stickson" problem in moist cold weather.

When do I need to have the timing belt checked on my 2002 buick century? the car has 102,000 miles on it.


Your 2002 century doesn't have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. Timing chains don't need to be changed at a certain mileage.

The anti lock brake light keeps coming on after startup


Your anti lock brakes have become history, the light is going to stay on, because the brakes are gone. You still have brakes, but you don't have the anti lock device. Most cars give out in the rear, and most people do not get them fixed, expensive. They just put tape over the light and drive. I took the bulb out of the dash, have never had a braking problem, been years. But I didn't tell you what to do, just what I did. Hope this helps.
