Check wiring. The main battery cable at starter as well as the line going to the battery fuse box at starter is likely lose or has defective terminal end.

SOURCE: 2006 buick lacrosse how to replace headlight low

The bright light fitting is the same as the dim so take it apart fist to see how the cover screws off/on and the light comes out. Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. If not, then you need to release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin just like you were pulling a nail by the head. That should give you a little more space.

SOURCE: how do u add transmission fluid on a buick

The only way I know of to add transmission fluid to a transmission is through the same tube that the dip-stick is in. Add about 1/4 quart at a time. Usually, it is added while the engine is warm, idling in park or in neutral. It should tell you on the dipstick itself. Be sure it is on level ground. Do not overfill, or it will leak forever.
If the transmission level is low, then it must have leaked out in the first place. Try to find a leak by parking over night on fresh newspaper, and observe the paper the next day. If it is towards the front, then it might be the tubes going to the radiator, which cools the tranny oil right along with the engine coolant. If it is in the middle of the engine compartment, then it is the front seal, a major repair, so just maintain the level until the end of the car's lifetime. If it is towards the end of the engine compartment, then it is just an output seal, an easy fix by a competent mechanic.
Most transmission shops, as well as brake shops, will give you a free inspection. Sometimes, Wall Mart will too.
Good Luck.

    2007 Buick Lacrosse will not crank (mimics a dead battery), but the horn blows at each attempt to crank the car. Am told it is the anti theft device that is causing the problem. How do I fix it?


    I'm gonna have to disagree on the anti-theft. In most cases the vehicle WILL turn over but will not start because the anti-theft shuts off ignition spark and fuel. If you are not getting anything at all I would start by looking at the starter. Now there is a fuse for the starter you can check. That fuse is located in the fuse panel under the hood of the car on the passenger side of the vehicle. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout. The fuse you will want to check will be the fuse in the number 33 position and is what they call a "J" type fuse. If that is blown you may have a short in that circuit or the starter itselff may be bad and causing it to blow. Just for your information, even if the lights and horn work that doesn't mean that your battery isn't low. It takes quite a few amps to make the starter move and if you are low on power the starter will not work but in most cases you would at least hear a click. If your not hearing anything at all I would start with the fuse and go from there. I hope this helps and good luck.

    Oil light comes on. Oil just changed and oil is full


    We just experienced our oil light coming on. We were on our way to have this checked out and I decihded to look at the book. It said there is a sensor that lets you know when you need an oil change you have to reset this feature by putting your car in the run position, not starting it, slowly pump the gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds. Turn the key to off position and then start it. The light will go away. If it doesn't there is something else wrong with it. It worked for us. We had just had the oil changed and it was never reset. I suppose that is why it came on.

    Can't find the fuel filter!


    I have a 2002 Lesabre but suspect it is in the same vicinity. Look under the car, drivers side under the passenger door towards the middle of the car.
