Cant fill my tank,pump keeps

Hello topromeo.

In modern vehicles there is a system in place to capture and burn the vapors when filling the fuel tank.
This consists of a carbon canister, hoses and valves.
The vapors when filling the tank are routed through the carbon canister and stored there until the car is driven.

Under certain conditions these valves need to close to test the system integrity.
In your case there is a valve that has stuck closed and not allowing vapors to vent through.

This is called a canister vent valve and is located under the car on the carbon canister.
It should be available at your local Buick dealer.

If you require further advise on this subject please ask me here.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems

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

How to turn off traction control for a 2002 Buick Century

The Enhanced
Traction System
warning light may
come on for the
following reasons:

If you turn the system off by shifting to SECOND (2)
or FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay
on. To turn the system back on, shift to THIRD (3) or
Traction System” in the Index.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning light
comes on and stays on for an extended period of
time when the system is turned on, your vehicle
needs service. Adjust your driving accordingly.

The warning light will come on when you set your
parking brake with the engine running, and it will
stay on if your parking brake doesn’t release fully.
If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other
than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning
light stays on after your parking brake is fully
released, it means there’s a problem with the system.

If the traction control system is affected by an
engine-related problem, the system will turn off
and the warning light will come on.

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.

I have a 2002 Buick Century that is leaking water from below the front left windshield.How much disassembly is required to find the leak?

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.

Where is the cigarette lighter fuse for a 2002

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.
