Question about 2003 Buick Park Avenue

Open Question

2003 Buick Park Avenue...gas gauge does not work...the needle will go to Full then back to Empty or whatever correct level is....the miles left to travel on the control panel does not show correctly. Also, now the left turn signal does not work and putting in a new turn signal switch does not fix the problem. What are the problems? What is the fix?

This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
If not:

To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
Good Luck

SOURCE: Buick Park Avenue rear suspension pump noise

You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump

SOURCE: Gas gauge has stopped working on 1998 Buick Park

If it was the sending unit, it is accessible through the trunk floor. A problem I have with my Park Ave gas gauge is when I get a dead battery and try to start the car, the needles will twitch and it sends my gas gauge needle to the far right side. This causes it to rotate/fall under the proper gauge are and come up under the rest pin on the left side. When that happens, I have to pull my whole instrument cluster and rotate it around so the needle goes back up to the top.
Check where you needle is the next time you turn the key to run. If its under the little rest pin at the empty position of the gas gauge, then this should be the fix.

My gas needle staying on fill but its not full how do i fix it


First you need to test the gauge to see if that is the problem or if the Fuel Level sending unit is the problem. Most likely this is going to be the sending unit but if you disconnect the wires to the gauge and it still shows full then it could be the gauge itself.

Fuel and temp gauge needles are under the pins after being serviced


previous owner had drilled a 1/16 size hole on the clear plastic directly in front and align with the gas needle at the area where the needle located ( usually below the empty post). use a paper clip the size of the drilled hole, bend one end slightly so it will catch the needle and drag it over the post. i did this couple times already. Do not overfill your gas tank (top-off), which will cause this needle to bounce off and go under neath the empty post. i hope this will help

My battery went bad in my 1998 Buick Park Avenue and the auto shop tried to jump it which cause my speedometer, tachometer and gas gauge to flip rapidly left and right. The gas gauge flipped to the right...


The instrument cluster is a sealed unit, do not recommend taking it apart for that. What I would do is drill a small 1/16" hole near where the stop pin is through the plastic outer cover and use a paper clip or sewing needle to move the fuel guage needle back to the other side of the stop pin. Reseal with a drop of super glue to keep dust out of cluster.

2003 Chrysler T&C Van. Gas gauge stopped working. I filled gas tank and knew that it was full of product. On leaving the station the gauge was stuck, showing 1/4 tank of gas left. I drove a few...


the fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank is a mechanical part, but you may have an electrical problem. the needle is moved by an electrical signal. you can check the wires coming out of the back of the gauge, one will run to a chassis ground. make sure that wire has a good connection to ground, first because it won't work right without it and second because it's lots easier than the next thing you will have to do if that doesn't make an improvement. if you see no difference after checking the ground then you need to drop the tank and replace the fuel level sending unit. you will have to remove the fuel pump to get to it so you might want to replace it while you have it out, that's your call. your vehicle is new enough that the decision would be more based on miles than age. hope that helps

1998 Buick Park Ave Speedometer stopped working.


Found the problem with the speedometer on my Buick. When you use the magnet to fix the gas gauge, will can and may affect your speedo. So use the magnet trick on it as well. Appears that the manufacturer didn't think about the needles being able to swing past the magnet they have set up in the gauges. Should have put a stop pin on the gauges.
