Headlights flicker on and off at night on my 99 buick lesabre

the headlights Flicker could be caused by the alternator. Local auto parts stores will test this vehicle charging system with their mobile analyzer and it will determine the problem...
The alternator generates direct current for recharging the battery and for powering vehicle electrical loads.

Dash lights and headlights are flicker on my 2000 Buick LeSabre limited. Any solutions? Also the abs and traction control light won't go off.

Traction light is on because the abs is on.Traction control needs to have the abs system fully functioning to work.Most common cause of abs light is a wheel speed sensor.As for your lights flickering the alternator may be going out or you have a poor ground connection.Would check battery cables first to make sure they are tight.

On top of the headlight housing are two large knurled black plastic knobs.Unscrew them counter-clockwise.Now the whole headlight housing may be removed. Set it on the bumper and you'll have easy access to the marker light.
