      Vacuum actuators control the mode doors which direct air flow to the outlet ducts. The mode selector on the control panel directs engine vacuum to the actuators. The position of the mode doors determines whether air flows from the floor, panel, defrost or panel and defrost ducts (bi-level mode).
      Check them out.

    The ac output switches between vent and defrost
    the cold air will switch on its own to the defrost vents rather than the console vents. Will do this randomly. Lately it has been staying more on the defrost than the console, 1997 Buick Lesabre.

    My cars master power switch works good, besides the window lock. Every time a window goes down its the drivers job.
    this started happening when the window lock button went loose. I later found it when i took off the master power switches, but i cannot figure out how to put it back on and make the other windows available to be used to passengers.

    I have rust developing on rocker panels - driver and passenger sides and the chassis underneath. Rocker panels were
    undercoated one year ago, but rust is starting to seep through. My auto body professional has advised that it is inherent in the make/model and that there is nothing further that can be done. Do you agree? Is there another alternative? I would like to keep the ...

      The vehicle would have to be inspected in person - at a local, trusted auto body repair shop in your area. There is no way for anyone other than that person to know the cost or provide you with an accurate estimate.

    The Century is developing/has rusting on both rocker panels and on the chassis underneath.
    My auto body specialist undercoated the panels approximately 10 mos ago,but the rust is reoccuring. He advises that there is nothing further - except apply another undercoat to panels- to be done. I would like to maintain the car in as good as possible condition ...

      Check for voltage and ground at the headlamp connector. Compare readings to other side headlamp connector. If the headlamp lens is foggy, there is info all over the web about cleaning those.

      If your talking about rear tail lamps, have to check voltage and ground when problem is ongoing.

    Why do Display lights not come in daylight conditions?
    When driving during the daylight hours I am unable to read the various display lights because they are to dim. After driving a while they sometimes suddenly come on brighter.

    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.
