    To start with the basics, are the front ones working? And have you replaced both bulbs in the rear.

Your headlight switch is the problem and can be purchased at almost any parts store inexpensively. I'm assuming you checked all the fuses. I mean ALL the fuses because they often run circuits together without indicating this on the legend plate.

The running lights and turn signals don't work on my 1995 buick Skylark. the headlights and taillights work it i turn them on though. i checked fuses but they seem to be fine

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, please check the bulbs for it can be blown. If the bulbs are good then it can be just a blown fuse for the tail light.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one

The dash lights went out on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. It doesn't have the heads up display or remote locks, though they are power. All the other lights work fine, the computer displays work, and when...

Sounds like you have some confusion going on here.
The dash lights and tail lights have always been on different circuits and fuses. So if one set of lights fail, the other stays on unless the headlight switch blows up.
The fuse marked "instruments" is for the speedo and gas gauge, not the lights.
On your car there is an instrument panel module and a dash integraded module which both involve the dash lights.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures for this circuit.
Another thing - after 1998 most cars and trucks switched from having the headlight switch provide power to having them provide the ground connection.

Where is taillight fuse on 1989 buick lesabre limited, its not in main fusebox

I believe that model has TWO fuse boxes. One in the glove box and one under the hood on the passengers side. Do you have the owners manual??? It should show where it is. Otherwise, try your local public library for a repair manual on that model Buick.

In my rear tailights, the breaklight component is not functioning. i replaced them with brand new lights. the center breaklight located in the back window is still working. Cant figure out why they wont...

Have had this problem many time's here at my shop, if center brake light come's on which you said it does, fuse and relay are good, the problem is your turn signal switch cause the brake light circuit goes through the switch, the switch is bad even though the turn signal's still work's, good luck, hope this was evrey helpful.
