U are going to need to replace the door panel, I suggest you try and find a used one, a door panel runs about $500.00

The door switch is pushing thru the door panel because you have a missing screw or the actual area around the panel has worn away and is no longer holding the switch. To remove the door panel, remove all of the hidden phillips screws located behind the many little plastic covers and behind the door handle. There are also some screws holding the door lock switch in place. The door panel is held on by a bunch of small plastic clips, insert a flat head screwdriver between the door panel and the door skin and pry it off, it is a tight fit but it will come off. Once you get it all loose, pull up from the bottom of the door panel and then disconnect the wiring harness from the power window switch

Turn the ignition to ON. Press the GAUGE INFO button on the driver information center (DIC) switch to view OIL LIFE INDEX. Press and hold the RESET button on the DIC until the display reads OIL LIFE INDEX 100% NORMAL. The engine oil life monitor is now reset. Turn the ignition OFF.

When "OIL LIFE INDEX CHANGE OIL" appears in the Driver Information Center, press and hold the "RESET" button while the oil life index is being displayed. After 5 seconds, the oil life will change to 100%

When "CHANGE OIL SOON" light is illuminated, access the reset button in the glove box. With the engine off and the ignition switch in the run position, press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds. The light will flash four times and then go out.



To reset the "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the run position with the engine off. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal three times within 5 seconds. The light will flash twice and go out.



To reset the "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the run position with the engine off. Access the reset button on the end of the instrument panel by the fuse block. Press the switch and hold it for at least 5 seconds.

When "CHANGE OIL SOON" light is illuminated, find the hole in the underside of the dash on the passenger side near the door. Insert a blunt instrument into the hole and press the switch. The light will flash four times when the system is reset.

Broken d/s window switch

More than likely the door panel the switch sets in is broken not the switch, this is common. You will need to try and find a used panel in the right color. I suggest you use a used part search engine you can find by googling "used Buick/car parts request from".

2004 buick park avenue passenger windows and mirrors do not work

They look good, what does that mean, you tested them and voltage is present to the window motor and mirror? The easiest way to test is with a 12 volt probing test light. they cost about $5 for the cheapest ones.

1989 buick park avenue Cannot get power window

These are a pain to do so you will need to remove the small trim peice behind the inside door handle to get to a small screw holding the door trim on. Next retaining clips hold on the sides and bottom door trim. Some screws may be on the bottom too on some models. using an old tablr fork helps out by removing the center fork prongs which will be used as a pry bar to pry up on these clips. Once removed you can gain access to the switch. Some models will let you pry out the switch panel instead of removing the whole door trim. If the switch is mounted in a panel that is separate from the door trim it will come out that way separately

Where is the fuse box for 1989 buick park avenue

If this is the old body style, it is under the silver panel to the left of the steering column. Open the drivers door and you should see 2 black plastic spin nuts about 2 inches apart. Push them in and turn (They are spring loaded) and the panel should pop loose for removal.
