Question about 2007 Buick Century

Electric brake control module??

96 Buick Regal. The interior lights and radio would dim and turn off when the brakes were applied. After some time, it would happen more frequently even when the brakes weren't applied. Now the car won't even start. Its a good battery, a mechanic looked at it briefly and said it was the electric brake control module which would cost about $1000.00. I'm looking for a second and more professional ( and hopefully cheaper) opinion. Please help

    they tested my brake controle module and said it was falty.now i have gone to a salvage yard and already have replaced it 3 times but still does the same thing.im wondering if my master cylinder is bad would it cause the brake module to keep running falty or what if my ABS sensor were bad . could any of those things stop my module from working correctly

Brakes short lights


You need to get you alternator tested, it sounds like the current output is too low.

2000 buick regal , track light on, anti lock brake light on???


You will need to take it to the GM dealer or any well equipped brake shop and have the system ABS/Traction Control system computer scanned, a fault has occurred in the system and at this time you have no Traction control or Anti-Lock brakes. When the lights were turned on the systems control module stored a code for the fault in the system. The ABS and Traction Control are one in the same system.

Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.

Buick Regal 93 Light/window electrical problems.


start with the basics... check the bulbs... then the fuses.... after that use a multimeter to see if power is going to the lights that are not working.... bad grounds will cause the lights to be dim or not work.
