The window motors could be losing power in the 95 Century. Check the wiring and switches for any loose connections causing the problem.

Some are in the inlet to the evaporator and some could be in the condenser line.

the catilatic converters could be stopped up.

The popping noise from a Buick Regal could be one of several things. You could have brake issues, or some problem with the suspension. Left unimpaired, the car could break down at any time.

Could be tune up time including air and fuel filters. Could also be a plugged catalytic converter.

The lights on your Buick could be out for a number of reasons. It could be blown fuses, faulty wiring, or dead bulbs. Your mechanic would be able to test this.

this could be several things. If it occurs often there could be a fuel pump or fuel pump filter problem. The gas filter in the line could be clogging. The mass airflow sensor cound be going out.

I am no mechanic but I would certainly start with the fuel system...is the gas fresh, is it getting gas, etc

take it to a transmission shop. The problem is in the tcc valve body.

I had this problem with my 1994 Buick LeSabre and it no longer happened when I installed a new battery. It's been at least 6 months now with no recurrence of the problem. Before the new battery, I noticed that if I waited about 5 minutes after turning off the car, I could get the lights to turn off. Seemed like something had to cool down.

yes because it could be really dangerous without proper equipment

Sounds like the duct doors are not opening properly. Could be a vacuum leak, or it could be the stuck doors need to be replaced, which mean taking off the dash...which is about $450 before addressing the duct doors problem.

Certain self diagnostics are only run at specific fuel levels. Have the system checked for codes to know what the possible problem could be.

It could be your courtesy light fuse. See my answer on horn blowing continously. It is really hard to explain what the problem is.

User Avatar

A few things could be the problem: bad bulb bad fuse bad ground

I just fixed a similar problem on my 95 LeSabre, got info from this website. http://www.imcool.com/articles/aircondition/fix_vacuum_line.htm

Try getting the PCV pipe replaced. Mine had a problem with it conking-out at stops and on turns and that turned-out to be the problem. It could also be a vacuum leak.

You should check a doctor! I have the same problem.
