SOURCE: 1999 buick century head lights

Iam an ASE Certified mechanic and i had the same problem with my 99 century and i wasnt able to drive at night. After hours of testing wires we came to the problem. Its the turn signal switch assembly which is tied into the hazard switch on top of the steering column. Its all one piece with a 3 foot long wiring harness attached to it running down the bottom of the steering column and going underneath the dash. The least expensive place i found the part and had it in stock was my local Auto Zone and still the part was $200.00.

The switch needs to be replaced. Over time and use the wires tend to break off their contact points. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you don't have power to the switch or the auto switch.When you pull on the turn switch you are just flahing the high beams.Almost all gm's will do that.Would try and check fuses or get a wiring digrahm and see were the power comes from to feed the switch.If you work on apliances its about the same.Well good luck

1999 Buick Headlights will not come on


Did you check the headlight switch ?
The high beams working bypass the headlight switch so you can flash to pass another car.

1998 buick century only high beams and turn signals work. No headlights. I have checked breakers, relays,fuses,power at headlight switch, power at headlight harness, all are good.


The Buick Century is equipped with a multi-switch. This switch is an all in one switch that controls your cruise control, windshield wipers and turn signals in one switch. This switch also controls dimming and brightening of your headlights. The dimmer switch is simple to replace, and all you need is a phillips head screwdriver to complete the task.

  1. Removing the Steering Column Shroud
    • Removing the dimmer switch starts at the steering column. To plan this task out, access the steering column by removing the screws holding the steering column shroud in place. This will expose the turn signal lever. Remove the lever by twisting it forward, and pulling it out of the switch.
    Removing the Dimmer Switch
    • The switch is held on by two screws and a wiring harness. The wiring harness can be removed by prying up on the locking tabs and pulling the connector out of the socket. The two screws can be removed with a phillips head screwdriver. The switch will slide out. To install a dimmer switch, be sure to repeat these steps in reverse order.

I have a 2000 Buick Century and if you hold the switch the brights will work but the low beams will not work not a bulb issue. The turn signals will work but still no head lights
