I just had the Body Control Module replaced on my 05 Buick Century due to the radio and dashboard lights turning on on their own. This would always happen about 2 minutes after the car was turned off and locked with the keyless remote. About a month after replacing the BCM, the headlights in the car turned off completely while driving a night when trying to turn off high beams. The ... Read More
The car will shift harshly at times, slip at times like many other Buick Centurys. The problem lies in the transaxle position sensor (on the opposite side of the throttle position sensor on the throttle valve after the air intake ) It will stick. You can either replace it, instead of all the other crap they try to sell you or pump the gas pedal a few times before you start ... Read More
My 2005 Buick was absolutely perfect until I had the trans fluid flushed, then it began to intermittently shift hard, mostly 2nd and 3d gear, usually when warm. The quicky oil change place I had it done at says they did everything right, put in the right fluid, and didn't use any cleaner, just extracted the old and replaced with new fluid. I had to have the dealership diagnose and fix ... Read More
My 95 Buick Centry ran great; never had more than typical maintenance, but the repair costs now are more than the car's value. Does anyone have extra carfax credits or other car history report credits I can use so I don't have to pay the fee? Thanks. I'm going to assume the ride of the more recent models is as good as my old 95. It felt like I was coasting. ... Read More
Hi, I have a 2005 Buick century. My lights behind the speedometer went out, not the lights for the P/R/D. I took my dashboard apart and replaced the lightbulbs thinking this would work, but when we tested the lights, they still didn't turn on? Can anyone pls help?!! Thank you!!

I bought this car when it had 22K on it and it now has 140K. Been very happy with it as the engine runs great and is very quiet and smooth--I often get 30mpg or sometimes even higher on the highway but have recently developed a hard shifting problem. When it upshifts I get a hard clunk as if the shift is delayed and then finally catches. I had the transmission ... Read More
The advantage I can see for an OEM cap is the fit. The check engine light will come on if the gas cap is not perfectly fitted. (detects air leak). Fit is *critically* important. The only installation issue I can think of is that the gas cap is tethered, so you need to disconnect the anchoring line from the cap. I don't expect this would be very difficult.
My fuel cap will no longer lock and needs replacement. What are the advantages of using the OEM cap than an after mart one. What special tool is needed?
I have a 2003 buick century that I bought(for $475) with a known transmission slipping problem. It would not go into gear for several minutes after placing the shift selecter in drive. It slipped between gears and sometimes down shifted hard when coming to a stop and then pulling away. Most problems went away after it was driven for a while. The transmission shops quoted from 1600, 2200 and 4000 to ... Read More
I was havein the same porblem with my 2003, it would slowly accelerate up to about 35-40 and then when it goes to shift it would sit in nutral and the engine would just rev, and the next day when i drove it to the shop it drove fine and they drove it and nothing. Then eventually i carfaxed my car for the fun of it, and in it, it said ... Read More
Due to discoloration outside and moisture inside the headlight covers (right & left), they need to be replaced. How do you remove the 2005 buick century headlight covers for replacement?
I have a 2005 Buick century and I can't turn on the vent because I have a fuel leak under the hood. Inside the car smells like gas. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can get it fixed,or if there's somthing that I can use to stop the leak???
Anyone know how to remove the rear seat of a 2005 Buick Century? I want to put some seat covers on. It should be simple but being a technopeasant I don't want to damage the seats trying myself not knowing how to do it correctly and I don't want to pay a dealer $75 an hour to do what should only take 15 seconds.
2005 buick century. It has been parked for about 1 1/2 weeks. Went to drive it today and the heating/air conditioning system will not work if the head lights are on. works fine when running lights are on?
I have a Buick Century 2003. After getting my oil changed at a quick oil change place, they told me to turn the ignition key to the on position (without starting the engine), and flooring the gas pedal 3 times in quick sucession. The oil change soon light then starting blinking and went off. Apparently, this reset the computer. Hope this works in your case.
The headlights need to come from Regal/Buick models. You can use any headlights on that car from the years 1997-2005, as well as parts. I just bought one for my 97 Century for the driver's side from Ebay. Depending on where you live, you may be able to find a salvage yard that you can get parts from.
Hi everyone. I'm considering buying a used Century, in the 2002 - 2005 range. Any recommendations as to what things to look for, or avoid? Also, I wonder if I could get some feedback regarding reliability and durability (long-term) of the 3.1 engine. I know that the 3.8 in the Regal is a solid, workhorse Buick engine, but I'm not really familiar with the 3.1. Isn't the 3.1 a Chevy design, ... 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. Waverly Rd @ St. Joseph for those in the area) and pulled up next to a silver Century and though it was an Intrigue until I looked closer. The center lug cap has the Buick shield instead of ...
