    Okay problem solved. it was the starter. i thought maybe it might have been something else since i didn't hear the "klunk" of the solenoid. Anyhow she has a new starter now :)

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Regal LS windshield washer fluid does not spray

There are a number of different issues that could cause this.

-The circuit for the wiper should be the same as the washer; same fuse. -I'd suggest trying to run the washer while the hood is open and the engine off. If it runs, you should hear a dull whine.(a 2nd person might be of use to help look and listen)...(find the pump by following the hoses from the wipers to a unit mounted close to the dashboard in the engine compartment)
-If it runs, check to see if any fluid is coming from a hose that might have become disconnected.
-If the pump runs, and if you see no fluid coming from anywhere, and if you can reach the hose connected to the washer pump, pull that hose off the pump. Try running the pump again to see if anything comes out in a good stream.
-If the pump doesn't run at all, check to make sure the connector hasn't come loose.
-If the pump still doesn't run, check to see if you have 12 volts at the connector at the pump. A simple check can be done with an auto bulb connected to the plug at the motor while the pump switch is pushed.
-If you have power at that point, you likely need to replace the pump and motor.(depending upon the age of vehicle & your mechanical abilities...a call to a local wrecking yard is suggested ..atleast to compare the cost vs. new)

hope that helps

SOURCE: buick century 2000 wipers

I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...

I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.

When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997 thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of other components in/on the van.

For $20 it's worth it.

To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the dash next to the firewall and steering column)

If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper motor.

Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.

You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.

SOURCE: tail gate wont stay closed -latches not catching

I had this problem with my 2004 for the past year. Then this past week end it stopped latching all together. I found on mine the handle mechinism froze up. All the wd40 I tried did not help. I had to replace the handle. one thing I saw that could be a problem if it has happened since owning is if the connecting rods that go from the handle to the side latches are not adjusted right. they clip into the handle mechanism and if they were cannected with latch down they may not move enough to allow latch to lock completely.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevrolet Venture front winshield washers won't spray

If it shoots from the pump without lines connected, then there has to be blockage somewhere. You mentioned you blew the lines out, did you blow directly back through nozzles themselves?

My 2002 Buick century wont (crank) turn over ..jumped solenoid,it turns over but won't start ..checked all fuses and relays.. good happened after attempting to rewire front turn signal broken plug


Turn signal plug should have nothing to do with it not starting. Disconnect the battery for 10 to 15 minutes. Then try again with the key.
When you jumped the solenoid, it would start because the key may have not been in the run position. So the Security light was on, and did not energize the fuel pump.

Disconnect the battery as stated.

Why nothing happens when i turn the ignitio switch on a 2000 buick century?


Check to make sure your Battery is not dead. If it has a full charge then check the connection from the +side of the Battery to the Starter is tight and not corroded. Clean both Battery terminals as well.

My car wont start but all lights and dash come on


Lisa, how long was the key in the one position? For the heck of it, put the car in neutral, and try to start it. It's possible the neutral safety switch is bad, which could cause the problem. It should start in neutral if that's the problem. Let me know if this works, if not, I'll help further.
