you have to remove 8 screws on the back of the panel. The entire back where the lights are is one piece attached to the trunk lid, so you will be working over head. Remove the eights screws and pull the whole piece off. easy to do but takes a few. All back lights are accessable from there. If you need new bulbs or anything click here: Aliexpress Homepage and you can find anything for cheapest prices.
I hope this helped

go to any local auto wrecking yard and they may not even charge you for it

i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care

You may find that the drain at the bottom of the wind screen is blocked allowing water to get inside the car. It is worth trying to blow all the debris away as you may get lucky and blow the blockage away. You will need a compressor with a duster gun that can direct air into all the inaccessible areas.

No ,a new ignition module doesn't need programming

2002 Buick... | Answered on Mar 24, 2018

The fuse is located in the instrument panel fuse box. I have a picture of its location below. You have to open the passenger door to be able to see the cover. Below is also a diagram of the fuse layout and the fuse you want is the one marked "CIGAR LTR". It's in the 6th row up and the 6th one over from the left. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. If you don't and would like a copy, email me at [email protected] with your make, model and year. I will be happy to email you a copy & don't worry there is no cost for it. I hope this helps and good luck.

Sounds like the remote receiver module in the car is malfunctioning and will probably need to be replaced.

To my knowledge GM did not offer the remote start option until 2004. However, a remote start can be added to this vehicle in the aftermarket.

Contacts inside where the bulb attains its energy from need to be inspected. Burnt contacts are very common on these vehicles ie: the power that is present does not have a complete circuit path to make it through the load (bulb)

2002 Buick... | Answered on Dec 22, 2017

This behavior is usually caused by water leaking into the socket or just a bad socket. Clean it up and use some dialetric grease on the contacts.
