You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.
Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.

The cabin air filter for your 2002 Buick Century is located under the
cowl in the firewall between the engine compartment and the passenger
side of the front seat. To change the filter:
1. Leave the wipers in up position.
2. Open the hood
3. Remove the weather stripping from passenger side of cowl
4. Unclip the window washer line (two or three places)
5. Remove the three fasteners with an ordinary screwdriver (one is easy, the other two were more difficult)
6. Take out the cowel cover
7. Remove old filter
8. Put in new filter
9. Replace cover, fasteners, washer line, and weather stripping.
Do it about every 20,000 km. I left mine for nearly 130,000 km and it was filthy dirty.
New filter costs about $12
