The clock stays on in my 1996 buick century v6 and the radio fuse in glove box does not effect it, i tried removing it and had clock still on , is there a secondary fuse for clock?

Look for a "3" Amp fuse on the Fuse Block as it will be singularly used for just the Clock and should be clearly marked "Clock." The Clock should have a Red wire running out of it to the Fuse Block to power it. The Clock is typically wired separately. The red wiring will not be in front as it goes into the wiring harness and in the back of the Fuse Block but if you want to hunt for the Clock wire that will be it running out of a segment of the harness heading for the location of your Clock.

The clock stays on and the battery is going dead could the clock drain the battery

the clock is not the problem, you have to go to a electrician to se the all cables, bacause one ou more have already damaged the isolatation plastic and now is in contact whit the chassis, making the battery to go dry.

Clock light stays on abd drain battery if car sits for a couple days

make sure your DOME light dimmer switch is not on.If light still on the radio, then remove the 10 amp fuse for the radio.If light goes out you can either replace the radio or re-install the fuse each time to listen to your radio. there is a short somewhere causing the radio light to stay on.

Hi, I have a 96 buick century,if i dont use it battery goes dead

The radio in my 1996 Buick century had a clock light that did not go off when the car was shut off, so the battery would go dead after 2 days. Disconnected the radio and all was well. Getting ready for a new radio now.

Left the map lights on all day and now car won't start...1999 Buick Century...charged battery but still wont turn over

sounds like the battery got run down so far that it wont hold a charge-maybe take the battery out and take it to a parts store that can "load test"the battery-some testers can actually test the battery even if its dead-also when u charge a battery u have to make sure the clamps from the charger make a good connection. i read somewhere that everytime a battery goes dead it shortens the life of the battery-FYI most batteries last from 4-5 years if there are no other problems with the car.hope this points u in the right direction.

91 Buick Century 2.5 L brake light on & battery light on

For the Brake light to stay on and the fluid is up...sounds like your sensor is playing dead......

For the battery to die after only (4) have a very big drain on the battery itself.....without the vehicle right here to look at would be very hard to even guess...electrical problems are a hands on chore...

I'd take it to your garage/mechainc
