SOURCE: 1999 Buick Century headlights don't work properly

Iam an ASE Certified mechanic and i had the same problem with my 99 century and i wasnt able to drive at night. After hours of testing wires we came to the problem. Its the turn signal switch assembly which is tied into the hazard switch on top of the steering column. Its all one piece with a 3 foot long wiring harness attached to it running down the bottom of the steering column and going underneath the dash. The least expensive place i found the part and had it in stock was my local Auto Zone and still the part was $200.00.

P.S. This is a common problem on these GM cars. Mine did the same thing to the tee! The lights will go on and off then they just went off for good and this solved the problem. I guarantee it. If you have any questions please email me i will do all i can to help.

Replacing turn signal switch 2002 regal

GM multi-function switches (the switch on the steering column) are VERY involved to replace (unlike Dodge and Ford)! in most cases, you have to tear half the steering column apart to gain access to its mounts. You are better off taking the car to a mechanic if that is the case.

2000 Buick Regal do you have to remove steering wheel and air bag to replace a mutifuction turn signal w/cruise or just the plastic column covers?

You do have to remove the air bag and steering wheel to replace the multifunction switch. You also have to remove the lock plate which locks the steering when the key is removed. this takes a special tool a ( lock plate remover / installer ) the lock plate is held in place by a small retaining ring , but the plate has a very stiff spring under it making it just about impossible to remove with out the tool, and if you get Lucky enough to get in apart i cane assure you you wont be able to get it back togeather with out the tool. If you have a friend who is a gm tech i am sure he will loan it to you or you can buy one for about 10.00 to 15.00 dollars at any auto parts store ..PS please be careful with the air bag just disconnecting the battery is not enough they also have a separate power supply unplug the yellow connector a the base of the steering column befor doing any work...Iknow this sounds like a lot but if you take your time and have the right tool i am sure you will do just fine Good Luck

The turn signals in my 1993 Buick Regal work, but i have to hold them a certain way to keep them on. How would i fix that?

You would have to replace the multifunction switch on the driver side of the steering column. It is not real expensive and if you are handy it is not a real hard job. The multifunction switch does all the directional wiper and headlight controls. The cruise is wired into the handle, but goes down the column. That handle jsut pulls straight out of the multifunction switch.
