Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Locked up in reverse

My 2000 buick lesabre with 68K miles just locked up on me when I put it in reverse. I had to put it in neutral and push it out to drive it. Since driving it, it now shifts into reverse without a problem. Should I be worried? Checked the fluid, no issues there.

I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it happens again. It sounds like a valve got a little stuck. It's usually caused by dirty fluid. If it's bothering you I'd recommend replacing the transmission fluid if you haven't already. It can be full of worn or dirty fluid and still not work properly. Its a late model car so i don't think its the clutches. Hope this helps -J

Why wont my 2000 buick lesabre start when the security light comes on?


The light is on to indicate you have been locked out and the engine disabled. You must now have the dealer scan the system and determine the cause of the malfunction in the security system, it is likely the ignition lock cylinder key code reader that is defective.

My Park, neutral, reverse, drive display is not lighting up on my 2000 buick lesabre ....neither is my onboard readout where and how do I find the bulb, all other interior lights are working


Unfortunately, the bulbs are not easily replaced, they are soldered onto the instrument cluster.
The only way I know of to do this yourself is to remove the instrument cluster, desolder the bad bulbs and then solder new ones in.

Another option is to remove it, send it out for repair or replacement.

Cannot open front hood


I own a 1994 Buick LeSabre and I recently experienced the same problem with my hood. When this happened to me I first made sure the hood is fully locked (meaning, I pushed down on the hood making sure it is locked), then I had another person get in the car releasing the hood latch while I was outside with my fingers under the hood pulling up. Once opened, be sure to lubricate the locking mechcanism and the spring and your hood release problem will disappear.

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

My 2000 Buick LeSabre whines and will not shift into any forward gears. It also has a very loud whining noise. Car starts fine and I am able to put the car in to reverse. Once I put the car in Drive it...


it does sound like the transmission has packed it in. you might be able to find a decent used one via a wrecking yard and get a local mechanic to install it.
try to find one out of a car with under 100K miles on it.
