    AutoMD Member - 1997 Buick Century - Body & Interior - 7/10/2014
    My 1997 Buick has a transmission indicator and mileage indicator in dash. The light in the background does not work.
    The light in the background of this gear indicator does not work and I have checked most of the fuses. Anybody know what the cure would be for this ? It also shows the total mileage of the vehicle as well as the mileage for the last tank of gas.

      I had this problem on my 2000 Buick Century. The instrument cluster circuit board, which is located inside the instrument cluster has four resistors on the upper right side of the board. One had came unsoldered and fallen out. I replaced all four resisters with 150 ohm 1/2 watt resistors. Solved the problem. Removing the instrument cluster is not too difficult.

      Check with the manufacturer; Buick - and the local dealership organization as the first steps. Typically, any safety recall - if there is one issued - does not have an expiration date.

      If no recall exists, then the new seat belt assemblies are readily available in the aftermarket - be sure to not purchase used / salvage seat belts in attempt to save some cost.

      Thanks for the advice Jimm. I contacted the dealer and there was no recall for this particular issue. They did have the assembly available for $275.00 minus the cost of labor.

    Remote works then doesn't work.
    If I unlock tailgate manually, once I open it up remote works for a while(one day). Then quits and have to unlock tailgate manually again to get it to work.

      When problem is ongoing, can you hear the blower motor running? If blower motor is working, could be issue with directional door under the dash.

      If the front left blinker is not working then the cause lies specifically with the bulb (I am sure that you ruled this out already) or the socket itself or a broken wire leading to the socket. The black wire coming into the socket has to be a ground. Confirm that it is. The wire goes to the front left side of the radiator support.

    Why do i only get cold air out the passenger side vents?
    It only blows cold air out the passenger side vents. On max cool or normal

      It means that the system is low on refrigerant most likely, however, there is one possible other cause depending upon if the car has the optional dual zone climate control whiuch has individual temperature settings for the driver side and pass side, in that case the driver side blend door actuator could be stuck in one position. To confirm this, that would mean that if you were to try to alter the temperature setting for the driver side only while the problem is present that the temperature of the discharge air would remain unchanged.
