How do you replace low beam headlight on Buick lacrosse?

The procedure to replace head light assembly on buick lacrosse is as follows:---

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.

. Note:-- The turn signal is part of the headlight assembly on your 2005 Buick LaCross.

How do you Program homelink?

Programming Homelink is very easy. If you have access to the internet, simply visit the general homelink training page and watch the video (http://www.homelink.com/training/video.tml). These instructions are applicable to any Homelink vehicle system. (A simple way to do this without watching the video is to just push the "learn" button on the back of your garage door opener main box and then push and hold--just a few seconds--whichever Homelink button you want it to recognize. Usually your garage door opener main box will beep or flash when it has recognized the signal.) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Would like to add that for certain models (I have Craftsman) you need to have a programmed remote from which the homelink system can learn. You need to press buttons 1 and 3 on the homelink for about 20 seconds which puts it in the learn mode. Then press the button that needs to be programmed while pressing the button on the handheld remote. The garage door will open/ close due to this. The light will first flash slowly and then rapidly in the homelink system. If it still doesnt work, the next step is to press the learn button in the main unit and then press the same homelink button in the car for about 2 seconds a couple of times. I have also noticed that the handheld remote needs to be placed really close for the system to learn (during the initial learn mode) and you may need to try different angles.

How does GM passkey III work?

according to ehow.com there is a resistor built into the key and if the value of the resistor in combination with the other ones in your ignition do not match what is stored in your cars database the system will reject the key.

Passkey III is not resistor-based. There is a rfid (radio-frequency id) chip in the black plastic head of the key. When the key is turned to start, the exciter coils in the lock cylinder housing fire the id chip in the key, the theft-deterrent module reads the rf signal and sends a password to the PCM - if the key is recognised the PCM turns the starter and/or fuel pump on and the car starts. If the key is unrecognised or the ignition cylinder is turned without a key inserted (no rfid communication to theft deterrnet module) the PCM disables the starter and/or fuel pump.

What is the meaning of engine picture on the left side dash on 05 Buick LaCrosse?

That engine picture is called an engine light. It means that something needs to be checked out. How many miles do you have on your vehicle? Often times, manufactorers will set that light to go off at a certain number of miles so that you will bring your car in for a check up. Since your car is relatively new, I would guess that is probably what this is. But if you have a lot of miles on your car, there could be a problem somewhere. These days, when that light is triggered, mechanics can hook your car up to a computer that can diagnose the problem right away. This light is not something to completely ignore, but it's not likely that your car is going to quit running! The major things that I would worry about, like my oil level and brakes, have their own warning lights that come on when there's trouble in those areas. It's probably just a sensor if it's not just time for routine maintenance.
