Question about 1999 Buick Century

Front Left turn signal lamp doesnt work

My 1999 Buick Century's Front Left turn signal lamp doesn't work. I replaced the bulb, and after 2 days, it went out again. If I switched the bulb to the right side, it would work on the right side !! So, my guess is it's something to do with "high voltage" or "high current" spike.

(I had similar problem with my 1997 century too.)

Check wire contacts in socket. If they are melted change the socket
It can be removed easily just unplug the wires.
I have replaced both front sockets on my 1999 Buick Century.
Hope this helps.

How to replace headlight on a 1996 buick century


The bulb comes out of the back of the lamp if that is your question.
And if there is nothing left of the hood release cable inside the car, you may have to go up from under the front bumper or thru the grille to release the latch.

I have a 1998 Buick Century, and the right turn signal in the front stopped working suddenly. The turn signal on the right in the back flashes very fast, but nothing flashes in the front. The turn signals...


The bulb in front is somehow not getting voltage. If memory serves, that headlight assy. has a circuit board of some type, and your problem most likely lies there.

I have a 89 buick century and the front left blinker is not working but all the other lights work. also i changed the bulb and it still doesnt work, can someone help?


Well, Lets see, When the Left Blinker front is not working does the bulb turn on BUT, Just doesn't blink. If it turns on and no blink You need to also, check the rear bulb.If eight er one is bad they will NOT blink. The turn indicator on the dash does that blink.. If you find all the bulbs are GOOD
Then, I recommend take out the Front bulb and look into the socket be sure it's clean no rust.
Also, be sure you put the proper bulb in. I know the 1156 bulb looks the same as the 1157.
Be sure, you installed the right part number Let me know.
Mike.

Left turn signal not working at all


It is the blinker bulb more than likely. When one burns out it does this so you know to replace. Just open up the trunk and remove assembly from inside trunk remove bulb and replace. Should fix it.
