Question about Buick Century

2 Answers

The turn signal lights turn on but don't blink and also the under the hood light, the trunk light and the "dome" light inside the car don't come on at all. I checked the fuses and they all look fine. And also the radio doesn't work, only the tape player works.

    Thank you, no i didn't check the blubs but i can do that. also one other thing i forgot to put down is the door lock switch doesn't work. I can manually lock and unlock the doors. The passengers side door i have to shut the car off to unlock it. Is that a fuse?

Congratulations on owning one of Americas best cars. For sure your blinker flasher is most likely dead. This can cause some problems so replace that first. Second check a fusible link coming from the positive side of the battery cable. This is usually an easy and inexpensive fix no matter what it is.
ALSO - while I have you here please take down your vin number - call the local dealer and ask about recalls - this alone can save you thousands over the years.

You say the turn signal lights come on but do not flash. The fix is to replace the flasher relay as it is defective. If the tape player is working and it is part of the radio then the fuse is good and I would suspect the radio is bad. If you hear static then the antenna may have come loose. If you hear nothing that is a sign the radio is bad. Did you remove all the lights that are not working and check the bulbs with an ohm meter to see if they are good? Use a multimeter to see if you have 12 volts at the sockets. If not remove the fuse and check it with an ohm meter.

    I think you have more than one fuse blown, Fuses may look good but still be bad. Check them with an ohm meter.

Ok i don't know about much about cars but i know


sounds like the signal switch relay fuse. turn your signal on and check your fuse boxes... inside the car and under the hood. it will look like a little square box inside your fuse box next to your other fuses. with your signal on, you should be able to locate the relay because it will be making a clicking noise. pull it straight out and go get another one. hope this helps.

Why aren't my turn signals, brake lights, parking lights, dome lights and trunk light not working when the fuses are good?


A mechanic would check for power at the headlight switch and turn signal switch then go from there.
Might be a fuseable link in the engine compartment.

I have a slow drain on the battery on a 1996 buick Century, I found if i take out the CSTY fuse the drain stops, Now how do I go about finding the cause of the short?/worn wiring that is slowly draining...


Hi, CSTY is abbrevation for courtesy lamps. They can be interrior lamps in the dome, footwell, inside headspace front and rear, map lights, glove box , door jams/panels , under hood and trunk. First verify that all your lights are going off when the doors are closed and key is off. For trunk and under hood courtesy light, use the push switch to verify they do turn off. (I've had a few under hood lights short out and do that) Next would be to remove bulbs one at a time and monitor your battery. (Painstaking, but effective) other than that, you have a short somewhere, lights in the bottom corners of the doors can get moisture and usually corrode first. Good Luck! Mike

My trunk broke a couple days ago and won't shut--I don't see any interior lights on in my trunk or inside of the car. Would there be any other lights that I'm not aware of that could drain my...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Trunk lights can be tricky. Make sure it is not on. Check for any lights in the glovebox or under the hood, dome lights, even the radio. If your battery is draining, check the wires, battery post, and terminals. They may need cleaned. May need a new battery if it continues to not hold a charge.

2000 Ford Tarus fuse box diagram. Power windows, Dome light and trunk light are not working. Itried to disconnect the trunk light.


Read your owners manual. Fuses are located under the drivers side of the instrument panel. The Power distribution box located under the hood next to the battery also contains fuses. Under the covers is listed what each fuse is for.

Front turning light does not work, i replaced the bulb, and when i turn the truning signal does not turn off.


Sounds like you have a bad ground. Follow the wiring harnesses under the hood and in the trunk, there should be a ground wire going to the chassis or to the body. If they are all clean and tight, you might be looking at a bad light socket.
