SOURCE: 1999 Buick Century headlights don't work properly

Iam an ASE Certified mechanic and i had the same problem with my 99 century and i wasnt able to drive at night. After hours of testing wires we came to the problem. Its the turn signal switch assembly which is tied into the hazard switch on top of the steering column. Its all one piece with a 3 foot long wiring harness attached to it running down the bottom of the steering column and going underneath the dash. The least expensive place i found the part and had it in stock was my local Auto Zone and still the part was $200.00.

P.S. This is a common problem on these GM cars. Mine did the same thing to the tee! The lights will go on and off then they just went off for good and this solved the problem. I guarantee it. If you have any questions please email me i will do all i can to help.

SOURCE: Instrument Cluster Panel out on 2001 buick century

2001 Century just hit 40,000 miles and the engine light has come on. Im wondering if this is an automatic when the car trips at 40K- for a check up or whatever GM wants your money for.

ps - from '89 to 2008 I had been driving Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas - Im driving this car only because I gave my Toyata Rav4 to my daughter and got this Buick from my elderly mother as she no longer drives. Its is amazing what a piece of **** this car is compared to what Im use to. At 40,000 miles you start having the engine light come on - amazing!

SOURCE: How do I adjust the headlights on a 2002 buick Century?

  1. Step 1 Purchase a replacement bulb from an auto parts department or auto parts store. The bulb number is 4157NAK. You also can check the parts book or ask store employee for assistance.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of the vehicle. The hood release handle is located under the dash on the left side of the vehicle. Once you discharge it, you must free the second hood release under the hood of the vehicle in the center. Move it to the right and lift the hood.
  3. Step 3 Locate two headlamp retainers (clamps) holding the headlamp in place. Pull up to remove them to discharge the tabs on the assembly.
  4. Step 4 Detach the power to the headlamp. Now you can easily remove the assembly out of its position.
  5. Step 5 Take off the rubber cover located in back of the turn signal light. This will allow access to the bulb socket.
  6. Step 6 Turn the light socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly.
  7. Step 7 Remove the old bulb by holding the bottom of it and pulling it gently up. Replace with new bulb.
  8. Step 8 Once you have replaced the bulb, put the light socket back in the assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.
  9. Step 9 Replace the rubber covering on the back of the headlamp assembly.
  10. Step 10 Put the headlamp assembly back in place by sliding it in the slot and attach the power supply.
  11. Step 11 Replace the retainer clamps to hold the headlight assembly in place and close the hood of the vehicle.

Adjusting head lights aiming

There is usually a set of screws located around the headlight assembly - get a level and take your vehicle and drive it to an area on a flat surface park about 2 feet away from a wall. Take the level and make a light line marking level under each light and use the screws to adjust the lights.

Hi my 2001 Buick century will not turn over why did this happen even after trying a boost did not make it turn,,car did not have any problem in the pass just happen this morning what would cause this not...

The most common cause is a bad battery or corroded battery connections to the battery. Try to loosen and re-tighten the battery terminals at the battery. It helps when you have your headlights turned on. So that you can see if the headlights get brighter when your tightening the terminals. I hope this helps :)

1988 buick century headlights

To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.
