He probably tucked it up under the headliner, a common place to hide it.

How to repair or replace sunvisor

Taping the 2 wires together is shorting them out and blowing the fuse, so disconnect them.
Now let me start off by telling you that I do not know anything about your particular vehicle, but I cant see it being much different from others, so lets see what I can do to help.
Obviously the 2 wires fed power to something electrical in the visor and I am guessing there is a mirror light fitted to it. Is there anything else electrical fitted to the visor? A controller button for example.
If you still have the ripped out visor open it up with a craft knife to see where the wires went to. Try reattaching the wires (make sure you connect same colors) to where they were ripped off and see if that makes everything work need to attach the visor into place, just testing the wiring for now.
If everything works again, then the problem will be that the wiring and what it connects to in the visor is part of the circuit and needs to be attached for everything to work without some major re-wiring. The easiest way is to get a replacement from a scrap or salvage yard as I guess a new one from Buick is very costly, if still available. The other route is to fully remove the electrical wires and connectors from the cut open visor, reattach to the 2 wires and try to tidy up the work as best you can.
Now for the bad news..... If when you tried connecting the 2 wires to the cut open visor nothing worked as it should, then either the visor was damaged when ripped out, in which case you will need to check out with a replacement one, or (and here is the really bad news) the wiring left behind (the 2 that you taped together) is damaged further into the loom and that is where the problem is. Exactly where, I do not know. It is also possible that taping the 2 wires together damaged something else, but don't beat yourself up about that as most people, myself included would probably have done the same thing.
Let me know if I have been of any help and good luck with it all.

If you have to press the vehicle's door lock AND the remote starter button...something is definitely wrong with the installation. If the prestige is a one button unit, try pressing the button twice within two seconds to start vehicle (press...thousand one, release, press...thousand two,release) this is the default setting.

yes its often that dealers will advise that if car starter installed there is no gurentee as well the car if its finish with the gurentee the tech line advises the mechanics to remove any after market devices installed to repair the original system but most of the time the starter is not the problem but it eliminates it sometimes the car starter has extra features that cause problems in the startingcircuit for example when the car starter installed the main wire is put it between the starter and ignition so if the wire is cut to far this causes a lost between the ignition switch and the starter or the module can be damaged and the same thing apears and so on

How do remove driver side sun visor


My driver's side visor inexplicably fell out the other day and I had to re-install it.

The metal frame has two openings in close proximity for the visor mounting. One is triangular and the other is a hole.

The teardrop portion of the visor has a post which fits into the above mentioned hole. The visor arm is attached to a piece which has three plastic lugs.

There is an opening visible in the last photo from the OP. I used a flat tip screwdriver and pressed IN on the tab inside the opening. This "dis-connects" the two pieces and allows the teardrop portion and the triangular lugs to move separately.

So, to install visor, press the tab, release the two portions, align the post with the hole and turn visor until three lugs line up with the points of the triangle. Push assembly flush with headliner and move visor back and forth until you hear a "click" and the two pieces are connected again. When I did it the click came when I moved the visor far forward (towards windshield). This position was approximately 45 degrees with respect to the line of the top of the windshield. I would imagine the dis-assembly is the opposite procedure.

Hopes this helps.

Best regards

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata I have the same problem with my 2007 Sonata driver side sun visor broke and will not stay up but keeps droping down in my view....

I have a 2007 Sonata and the driver's side sun visor broke. I called the dealership where I purchased the car, and was told that they only cover it for 5 years/60,000 miles. So if your's is broken, get it in there before the warranty expires. Otherwise the cost is around $80 for the visor unit.
