help I have a buick century 2000. this is the problem, the blower motor on the passenger side will not turn off, even with the engine off and the key out of the ignition. the only way to get it to stop is to pull the 60amp maxi fuse at location BAT#2. this however disables a couple of things including the break lights so of course I just got pulled over ...

Friends replaced transmission about a year ago. Today the transmission won't shift into any gear. Dip stick is dry! Saw transmission fluid leaked out under car. (Just drove over 100 miles yesterday!) Since replaced a year ago it still whined, shifted roughly after warmed up at around 35 mph, so my question is do we replace the transmission or check for other things first? (Like wire harness gone bad, filter, transaxle ... Read More
I have a 2000 Century that had intermittent transmission trouble. The check engine light would come and go. It would start to surge and hard shift. Sometimes would not go into 1st gear and would stay in overdrive. I did some research and found that the cars tend to have electrical shorts in the wire harness that plugs into the transmission, drivers side above the tranmission housing. There is a plug ...

When going from Park/Neutral to Reverse there's a loud 'clunk' and it jerks into gear. Does the same 'jerk' going into Drive but doesn't 'clunk'. All shifting in Drive is very smooth. This is my second transmission (professionally installed about 100,000 miles ago). Is the tranny going out or could it be something else (like the torqure converter.....etc)?
Problems with trunk lights and/or remote trunk release from glove box or key fob? It looks like GM used the wrong grade of wire for the harness between the car body and the trunk lid - too few strands and too stiff for all that flexing during weather extremes. Once you start having trouble and find at least one broken wire, expect the others to follow. I had five break in ... Read More
Jerking when proceeding from a stop and occasional low whine from the transmission started in my Buick Century 2000 at about 60,000 miles. I was advised to spend lots of money for various repairs, none of which I did. Various reports of people spending $800 for fixes that didn't last put me off. Update: 125,000 miles after the problem began. Still happens only occasionally. Never spent a dime on that symptom, ... Read More
Problems with the odometer and gearshift light level? The problem is likely limited to four resistors on the circuit board inside the panel. There is at least one really great Youtube video showing how to get the dash apart and requires only a Phillips screwdriver. Radio Shack sells a 5-pack #271-1109 of the 150 ohm 1/2 watt resistors you need for $1.19. If you or someone you know is skilled at ... Read More
I have the exact same problem with the odometer and trans indicator going dark. You mention sensor wires. Where should I go looking for broken wires?" Also you mentioned " i took of the wheel and there is was....broken wire". Are you referring to the steering wheel? What about the airbag? Thanks
By the way, you can also get control knobs at auto parts stores. My 2000 Century had a knob break, took it to a local store and visually matched to one of theirs, works fine, looks 90% like the original.
I have a 2000 Buick Century with a six speaker sound system. For several weeks I would get a crackling noise from 1 to 3 of the speakers even if the volume was turned down completely. Then it would quit and all was fine for a while. The problem occurred whenever I hit bumps in the road. Sometime the speakers would fade in and out. Eventually the sound stopped. The radio ...

I have a 2000 Buick Century and the automatic door locks don't work. Push the button on the door and they don't lock. Push the remote and they don't lock. If I close the locks manually I can open all doors. To lock the car I need to close each lock. Help!!
2000 Buick Century instrument panel went out. But only the small area that shows which gear your in (P/R/N/D/1/2). Any ideas what it could be? or how to get to the bulb to change it? We don't think it's the fuse. Desperately seeking advise.
RE: 2000 Buick Century Custom Hello all, I have some Body Control Module(intermittent power door locking failure) and Cluster(No odometer display, no PRNDL display) issues. While checking for current in the passenger side fuse panel (which has a light coat of rust from water into the cabin from a bad seal at the cabin air filter port), I noticed that there is no current on either side of the 10 Amp ...

Remove the O2 sensor before the catalytic converter. This will remove extra pressure off the catalytic converter and your engine should run smother if you have a "going bad catalytic converter" If your performance improves change catalytic converter and have all faults reset.
I have a 2000 Buick Century. I went to the Buick dealership here in VA to get my car inspected (a requirement in VA). Turns out that I had 11 bulbs out, didn't realize this but I replaced them all the next day. I brought in back to the shop the next Friday and they told me that I still had 2 lights out, my front side markers (I replaced them ... Read More
This happened to me! I drive a 2000 Buick Century as well. I switched my nob that controls the amount of air that blows out (the one the far left) to the second spot from the off position, it turned off when I turned my car off.

Hi, I had the same exact problem, It was the alternator, tested bad.

I have a 2000 Buick Century and the passenger side wiper just stopped working. The driver side works fine though. Is this gonna be a cheap repair? And what is the problem?
Can anyone help me with the problem I am having with my vents on my century. I can not control the vents from the windshield to the dash to the floor. Something has to have gone bad but I dont know what would cause this. I can fix most problems with a car, but if I dont know what to fix it is not real easy. Any suggestions would help.
On May 5th I took my 2000 Buick Century to a repair facility because my check engine light came on and the vehicle bucked at idle after driving for approx 15-20 minutes. The repair facility scanned the vehicle and advised me that the code pulled was for a injector # 2. They replaced the injector for the cost of $280.00 On May 11th my check engine light came on again, stayed ... Read More
hey, i had the same problem. i talk to a tech friend from mg and he told me that if i took it to the dealer i would get charged thru the roof. he told me to check the sensor wires. this is often the problem. they get worn and break. sure enough i took of the wheel and there is was....broken wire. I fixed the wire and problem went away. ... Read More
you're at step 1 of what I found in my 2000 century, I found the drain way up on the engine side of the right side of the radiator..looking from front of caR. I drained the coolent, flushed the system, and refilled the system. Only...to see the grayish brown sludge to appear again. Now my problem is with the heat gauge going slightly above the norm, and my transmission shifting hard ... Read More
my 2000 buick does the same thing with the transmission, but I've noticed that my engine temp. runs hotter than normal just before it starts shifting rough...if I turn my a/c on it will drop the engine temp and the transmission quits shifting rough. I'd like to find the problem with it too..is it the engine coolent getting hotter than normal causing the transmission to shift hard, or is it the ... Read More

I have a 2000 Buick century. Both front windows work fine but the back driver's side window will go down but not back up. (I'm afraid to test the passenger side) You can hear what I assume is the motor making a kind of clicking noise but nothing happens. I physically pushed the back window back up but it keeps sliding back down again. Any idea what could be wrong? I ... Read More
2000 Buick Century, 100,000 miles, 3.1 liter engine. Took the car to Advanced Auto Parts to get the codes read because the service engine lite is on. It hit for Torque Converter CKT Performance or Stuck Off, code P0741. On their suggestion I changed the automatic transmission fluid and filter.

But the service engine lite is still ... Read More
I have This Exact problem on my 2000 Century. All dash lights are OK except the odometer/gear select indicator is invisible. I tried to follow the discussion thread and see no help. Please, has anyone had this problem and knows the fix?
I will be looking at a 2003 Buick Century with 59,000 miles this week. I have heard that the 3100 has a know problem with the Intake and Head Gaskets. I had a 1999 Malibu and had to replace both with cost over $2000.00. Is there a way to check if these gaskets are starting to go?
I'm sure you found the reset button by now, but this may help others. The reset button for a Buick Century 2000> is located in the fuse box inside the car. It must be held for 3 sec.
Hi, I'm having a problem with the heat in my 2000 Buick Century. Although I can't find evidence, I suspect I have a leak as I'm filling my antifreeze every two weeks or so. I've checked the floor mats to see if the issue is the heater core leaking, but like I said, no evidence to support this. The "low coolant" light goes on and off, seemingly at random and when ...

Hi, I also have that problem and had it checked by a transmission expert. He said it's a common problem with the 2000-2002 buick century's and other gm cars that use the same transmission. The only real fix is to remove and replace the transmission with an upgraded unit. The cost is 2500.00 but comes with a 100,000 warrenty. I know it's a big cost but 2500 is cheaper than 20,000 ...

the car makes clicking sounds before it doesnt work. Everything lights up in the dashboar. anyone know the solution to this problem?
I use to have to keep re-setting my 2000 century all the time. After I had my tires re-balanced and rotated it stopped. :)
I have a 2000 Century and for the most part were content with it. You said you changed out the relays, did you check to see if it had signal going to the relays? Most cars have an over-ride that when you turn the A/C on the fan kicks in. Other than that when the coolant reaches enough temp the sensor sends a signal to the relay to activate the fan. ...

Where can I go to find directions on changing a front signal light on a 2000 Buick Century?
I have the same thing on my Y2K Century. In surfing the net I found GM's poor design is at fault. The long and short, a piston in the valve body has worn the cylinder it travels in. It's called Pressure Control Solenoid Valve (PCS valve). There are retro kits to fix the problem but like you stated its 8 bills to get it installed. Mine started acting up around 36k ... Read More
I just removed the glove box on my 2000 century today while installing satellite radio. Removing the glove box was the easiest part. I removed 3 hinge screws on bottom, tilted box sideways, jiggled a little, and it popped out. I used reverse to put it back in. Installing the satellite radio was a real hoot. It helps if your arms are double jointed while working under the dash.
My dad has a 2000 Buick Century and he has an sporadic problem for the past year or so. Sometimes when he is driving, the car starts whining and shifting into other gears. If he pulls over and rests the car it is fine. This can happen twice a day and then not again for months. It happens in all different driving conditions. The transmission shop wants to charge him 800 ... Read More
I've had some problems with my car missing and bucking at 40Mph & 70-75Mph and thought it might have been a clogged fuel injector. Today, I replaced the Bosch plugs that I had installed about a month ago with AC Delco Platinum plugs. What a difference! The car idles smoother and runs 100% better than before. When I returned the plugs to Advanced Auto Parts, the gentleman told me that I ... Read More
What were your symptoms? I have a 2000 Buick Century and it feels like it misses around 40Mph and again at highway speeds I can feel a surging, bucking or missing. I think it may be a fuel injector, but I was just curious what kind of sypmtoms you had. Thanks, Troy
Another chronic problem buick has is the transmission. My 2000 Century at 56k started shifting hard. From what I read, the valve body is made of softer material than the piston that controls pressure. After a while the piston seal leaks pressure and requires a repair kit with sleeve. Like you said, GM needs to start taking responsibility for poor engineering and do the right thing. Or maybe they plan on ... Read More
I currently own a 2002 Honda Accord, I'm not impressed with the Honda cars and I'm thinking of selling it and buying a 2000 or up Buick Century. I looking for words of satisfaction from current owners. Gas milage for one and reliability for another. Appreciate your input.
A rod in my mom's 2002 Century blew yesterday. She got it to the Buick dealer and is having an engine put in for $2000.00 w/40,000 warranty on it. The car has 56,000 miles and she has changed the oil every 3,000 miles. The service manager told her it just was a "freaky" thing that happened-no other explanation. I think that's a lot of BS. It seems to me that at ... Read More
I am thinking about buying a 2000 Buick Century with low kms. I was reading some of the entries on the forum and now I'm worried about making a bad decision. I know all cars have their problems, but the uncontrollable acceleration problems some people have been having seem very scary to me. Should I buy a Buick Century?
I am trying to find a replacement cup holder that fits the front arm rest of a 2000 buick century. Problem is, this is for someone else's vehicle which is 300 miles away. I saw it once and thought it was like the one in my Park Avenue. Can one of you fine folks tell me the width of the cup holder attachment in your 2000 century? Also is it a ... Read More
1999 Buick Century, 45,000 tender miles, we bought the car new. Yesterday while my wife was entering the freeway, the car decided it wanted to go 75.

She restarted the car and as soon as she put it into drive and touched the accelerator peddle it wanted to go 75 again. We had ... Read More
My sister just bought a 2000 Buick Century and I suspect she is having the same problem. Did you ever find the solution to this problem justagirl???
If the fluid level is ok in the master cylinder reservoir, youy'll need an ABS capable scanner to retrieve any stored diagnostic trouble codes.
#50 does anyone have an answer for me on my abs system problem. Thanks Rich
The abs warning light comes on when I start my 2000 buick century limited and it stays on. I had the brakes checked and the drums in the rear new installed. I had the electrical abs checked out. The warning light went out for a week. Now it is on again and stays on. Can anyone help me on what the problem is. Thank you for your comments. Rich
This can be really serious. My wife had the throttle jam at 70 mph ofn the freeway, slammed on the brakes, exited the freeway at high speed, ran a stop sign and finally stopped it by throwing it is park and stalling the engine. This saved her and my kids but trashed the brakes and required over $800 in brake work. The brakes were so over heated that the hub caps ... Read More
Since the the price is firm, there might be some things the dealer will do for you to close the deal: 1. Fix the windshield. It's really a safety thing since the windshield is an integral component of the passive restraint airbag system. 2. Provide name and phone number of the previous owner. This would be invaluable in that you can verify the vehicle is indeed a one-owner, if there were ... Read More
Hi, Did you ever find out the problem with your Buick, Century? I am having a similar problem. When I accelerate and the car is trying to switch gears, it jerks. The only way to get this to stop is to turn the car off, remove the key (disengage the electric part) I believe it is an electrical problem, because the car will reset itself after the key has been removed, ...

Hey Joel, I have the same exact problem on our 2000 Buick Century. I took it to the dealer and they charged us $150 to tell us that it is probably the light switch and it would cost $711 to replace it. I told the service manager he was out of his mind. I took the headlamp assemblies apart and swapped the high beams to the outside position. We now leave ... Read More
I have a 2000 Buick Century that has an electrical problem that is causing the low/high beam light not to work. I have taken the headlight out of this car and tested them on my 2002 Buick Century.

Hi everyone! My 2000 Buick Century has developed a coolant leak at 114,000 kilometers Mechanic (non-dealer) says that intake manifold gasket must be replaced (and hopefully nothing more). GM put out a Technical Service Bulletin in March, 2003 for this problem recommending that "a new design intake manifold gasket" (different gasket material) be installed to replace leaky gasket. Has anyone been successful in getting GM to do repairs under warranty? Any ... Read More
I think the 16" chrome rims for the 2005 Buick Century special edition are the same chrome rims from the 2000-2002 Olds Intrigue. I was driving in Lansing, Mich. this evening (on s.b.

I have a 2000 Century with 115,000 on it. I started getting a whiff of coolant when I would lift the hood. In addition I started to see an oil spot under where I parked on the carport.

Hi everyone. I found Edmunds some months ago, got lots of good info here, have been on a lot of test drives and rentals, and am finally close to getting a car. Can you help me narrow it down? I am looking for a smooth, quiet ride; reliability; value. I just drive myself most of the time. I have some injuries that cause me physical problems, so I donít like being ... Read More
If the check engine light is coming on it should be setting a fault code in the computer which the dealer should be able to address. You should keep all documentaion regarding the driveability problem and the dealer's attempts to correct the problems. Also, if the problems persist you should contact Buick's customer satisfaction dept( you can find the number in the back of your owners manual). When you call this ... Read More
I would go back to the dealer that replaced the pistons and have them take the car for a test drive I would ride with them and bring to their attention the problems that you're having they should stand behind the work that they did. I would take it back before your warranty expires.
We have a 2000 Buick Century that "ticked" when cold starting, which progressively worsened over time. After the dealership told us that all Buicks do that and it was normal, we confronted them with a technical service bulletin, so the dealership took the whole motor out and replaced the pistons. Now 1500 miles after the pistons were replaced, the car is missing/hesitating when leaving stop signs, and at highway speeds it's ... Read More
BTW, the name "Century" dates back to the thirties and was in reference to the fact that the car could achieve the then magical speed of 100 mph. Just bought a 2001 Century Custom today for $11,999; 27,000 miles; rental return. Beautiful automobile. I'm a little concerned about earlier posts about the defective pistons from the 2000 model year run, this 2001 has what sounds to me like a noisy lifter ... Read More

Could anyone suggest a place for past pricing info? My mother passed away & for taxes I need to know the PAST value of her 1998 Buick Century 4 door custom sedan (condition is clean) with 33,000 miles, back on the date of November 6, 2000. I would appreciate any help at all. thank you
Amanda, I agree that 83,000 miles is very high for a 1999 automobile. Chances are that it was a sales person's car, and could have been well taken care of. Although the Century is a great car, and I hope to keep mine well beyond 83,000 miles, I think that I would shy away from purchasing one with that many miles already. I actually sold cars for about a year when ... Read More
HI. I just bought a 2000 Buick Century with 17,500 miles. Two months later, everything still seems to be going well. I bought the car with a tire leak, but that was an easy fix once we found it. It's a great car and I'm happy that I still have a good bit of my warranty left. Just for reference: I traded in a 1991 Buick Century with 102K miles ($1300) ... Read More
Buick Century is in my list along with impala and intrepid. I am planning to buy used 2000 from the dealer. I read the entire topic, could not find major sickness for this car.

If you let me know your experience on certaion items like drive train components, AC, ... Read More
Just to update you all on the tire upgrade that I had asked about a few weeks ago. Last Sunday I went to the Wal-Mart Tire and Lube and purchased four Michelin Symmetry tires, and kept the stock 205/70/15 size. With the tire protection plan, my bill was $396. Let me tell you, this is the best $396 that I have ever spent!!! I immediately noticed that the car has much ... Read More
I just recently purchased a used 2000 Buick Century. So far it's been great, a very quiet engine, an extremely smooth ride. The only problem I've had was that the low tire gauge came on the first week, and a few subsequent times. Finally found the small leak, so it works. (What a surprising feature.) I am wondering if there have been any problems to look out for so that I ... Read More
Just got back from the shop,listen people, there is a Buick bulletin #01-06-01-005 that indicating the skirt on the piston needs teflon. Seems the skirt of the piston is causing the slapping or knocking noise we here on start-up! Shop is repacing the pistons in my 2000 Century. Good luck,Everyone :)
Also had lifter noise at cold startup on 2000 century,going to the shop tomorrow to check it out,had a problem with a Regal before it was the Brake rotors warped at 15,000mi.Posted on the main Buick page,but they didn't have a response for the problem.
...marketing bushel. I recently purchased a 2000 Regal, that had to go into the body shop for a bumper scrape, courtesy of someone in my apartment complex. During the two days in the shop, I had a 2001 Century to cruise around in. Why would anyone want to buy, say a Ford Taurus when Century is available? I was really inmpressed with this car. The 3.1 motivated the car admirably, the ... Read More
I am new to Edmunds and while reviewing topics I saw alot of comments about the Century that I totally disagree with. Granted every has different likes and dislikes and every vehicle made is not always the same even if they are the same model. I just purchased my Father-in-laws 1996 Buick Century (a deal I could not refuse). It is in perfect shape with only 55K miles. He wanted a ... Read More
We just purchased a 2000 Century a few weeks ago. Let me tell you, my other car is a 1997 Camry. I like the feel of the Century better. It's more responsive in the steering wheel, it's certainly more plushy and I like the way it handles. It will go 80 before I know it and it corners nicely. I have had the Camry for over a year but I feel ... Read More
I had a key replaced for my 2000 Buick Century from a dealer and they charged me $22.00. What the heck do you do when if you lose a key? I know it's because of the computer chip that's in it but are there any other ways of working around this. By the way, I'm glad I found you guys. Thanks in advance and thanks for the forum.
I am a dissastisfied owner of a 2000 Buick Century. I died on me as I was on the highway. I had a sudden loss of power, having no brakes and no steering. I know others have told me on the Internet that this is impossible, but I was in the car and I know what happened to me. I have always loved GM cars and loved that one until I ... Read More
I strongly believe there is a strong market out here for a medium size wagon like a Buick Century wagon. I would certainly like to own one. It's a nice compromise between a smooth riding sedan and an oversized SUV or not-so-mini-anymore-van. I would use it to haul top soil, small shrubs, antiques and such. I have a friend who plays a harp and hauls the harp in an old Toyota ... Read More
We just bought our second Buick Century. The new one is for my wife and we gave the older one to our son in college. They are great cars and get good mileage both in town and on the highway.

Just bought a 2000 Buick Century Custom with 14K miles. We needed a car sitting six adults. After a short driving the light went on on: SERVICE ENGINE SOON. We took the car to the dealer, got it back, passed the DC inspection, drove about 100 miles and the same light went on again. The car is back with the dealer. Do we have a lemon? Any one else have had ... Read More
Bought a 2000 Century Custom this past July. Has anyone gotten the power driver seat and the 'manual lumbar' on the passenger side as listed on the window sticker? My Toyota Cressida has manual lumber support so I was excited about it. Except Buick messed up and did not put it on mine as listed on the window sticker. Dealer's trying to get Buick to do something about it. Also, the ... Read More
I rented a Century for two weeks last year and found that I liked it. This week I visited our local Buick dealer and drove 2000 Century. The seat adjustment in this car is fantastic! I'm 6'5" and really have a problem finding a car that has enough leg room, this one has it. So the Century dosen't have the most powerful engine available, it works just fine and getting 30+ ...

We just bought a 2000 Buick Century Custom. We are very happy with the size and feel of the car. However, two weeks after purchase, the car has developed a "pinging" noise that comes from the underside of the car. It happens when the car is idling as well as after turning the ignition off. It happens whether or not we run the air conditioning. The dealer has told us this ... Read More
I'm getting ready to purchase a vehicle, most likely a 2000 Buick Century Ltd. I've used Edmunds and Kelly Blue to get invoice $ amounts, but the dealership has something listed I can't find. "Does anyone know what 'Vehicle Enhancement Protection Package' is? It's not listed in the brochure, nor is it listed anywhere that I have searched through here. Please respond quickly. Thanks.
I bought a 2000 Century last October and for the first 2-3 months the left cornering lamp worked when I used the left turn signal as it should. Then it suddenly stopped working. I took to the car to the dealer where I bought the car and the Service manger told me that the functionality was not there on the driver's side - only on the on the passengers side where ...

Has anyone seen a STERLING SILVER Century SE 2000? A dealer told me Buick is not supplying them yet. Is this true? I want that color loaded all options.
The horsepower boost and the addition of a fold down rear seat in the 2000 Century are excellent enhancements. The only things missing, for my taste, is a touring suspension option and more responsive steering, as Buick offers in the LeSabre and the Regal LS. The advantage of the Century over the Regal is that it's got six passenger seating, and its dimensions are trimmer than the LeSabre's.
