This may be either a defective DRL module or a headlight ground fault.

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.

Are you sure it is inside? I don't think the assemblies can be dismantled, since they are a sealed unit. I don't know of any that can be taken apart, so a problem on the inside of the lens would require replacement. But any store with an auto shelf or section stocks headlight lens polishing kits for cleaning the outside of the lens or assembly and bringing them back to new condition.

1988 buick century headlights


To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

The sensor for the auto light switching is in the top of the dashboard on the drivers side. You can see the little slits for the opening through the windshield. Disconnecting it may deactivate it so that the headlight swith will be in control. In the meantime, simply quickly turning your parklights on and off after removing the key will kill the lights immediately, rather than the minute or so extra time.
