If both lights quit working, then either the switch or the fuse is bad.

My headlights and running lights don't work and my high beams barely stay on. Sometimes I have to hold up the high beam lever to make them stay on. I have checked the circuit breakers and they are not


On this model the headlight switch provides ground for the lights.
You have a right and left 15amp fuse for the headlights, not circuit breakers.
The parking lights use 3 different fuses. The headlight switch sends power to the body computer which activates a parking lamp relay.
Those components would need to be tested to verify the problem.

Headlight doesn't work


Try checking the fusebox under the engine compartment. You should find fuses for both lights in there. also check your light relays also in the same compartment. You might have a bad relay.

there is a relay under the hood in the fuse/relay panel called drl, or daytime running lamps, that relay is most likely bad, a good way to tell is switch it with the high beam relay, if they come on you know thats it, if they dont, its the relay for the lowbeams, again switch it with the high beam relay and see.. either way i can tell you for sure one of those two are bad... but most of the time it is the daytime running lamps, or sometimes called driving lights relay. hope this helps you

I have a 1995 Buick Century that out of the blue last night, the dash lights, headlights, radio, and dome light quit working. Today I checked the fuses, unplugged the battery to reset the ECM, and fished...


There could be a timed circuit breaker:

Circuit Breakers The headlights are protected by a circuit breaker in the headlamp switch. If the circuit breaker trips, the headlights will either flash on and off, or stay off altogether. The circuit breaker rests automatically after the overload is removed. The windshield wipers are also protected by a circuit breaker. If the motor overheats, the circuit breaker will trip, remaining off until the motor cools or the overload is removed. One common cause of overheating is operation of the wipers in heavy snow. The circuit breakers for the power door locks and power windows are located in the fuse box.

All 4 window wont go up or down on my buick century. all windows stop working at the same time.


With all the windows quitting at once, start with checking the fuse. Some cars list a specific fuse location but there are other fuse locations that state " fuse # controls windows, *********other components. If the fuses are good make sure the relay for the windows are good.
