I have a 2005 Buick Lasabre Limited, it has a vibration in the motor are transmition when it is in gear, and it had truck sound when driving it. I have been told it could be the exhoust system, I have had it check with four GM shops and they can't find the trouble, all the motor supports have been replaced.
Please help. Richard

My remote trunk release doesn't work either by the door remote or key remote. I tryed removing the ground wire from the battery but still doesn't work a friend told me I might have to replace the trunk computer? Does it have one and where / what does it look like.
Check the trunk relay under the back seat. My 2000 LeSabre was doing the same thing. My relay wasn't properly plugged in. I plugged it in properly and now it works fine.

I have the same issue with my passenger side back seats.....cant find the leak though. also anyone else having a problem with they're car Just dying on the road.......for no reason i loose all power then have to wait before it starts again... battery is brand new.
My 2005 has this problem. I have yet to fix it, but have verified where the water is coming in. There is a windshield drain on the left side into, though and out the bottom of the door post. Apparently, during assembly, some foam is used in this area for insulation or sound deadening. If too much foam was applied, the foam obstructs the drain and causes the draining water to enter the cabin thru a hole in the kick panel/rocker panel area near the parking brake pedal mounting. I removed the trim, and verified mine with a garden hose on the windshield. The fix is supposedly to use a wire to break up and then vacuum out the foam. I am going to see if Carb cleaner or brake cleaner will disolve the the foam. This needs to be fixed now, before winter when it causes alot of condensation and frost issues in the cabin. Hope that helps.

I have a plastic cover in the trunk of my 2000 LeSabre 4 dr sedan that has come loose. It apparently goes against the back seat but has two arms that supposedly go against the top of the trunk side of the deck behind the back seat. Does anyone know how to reattach it? I could use a picture of the proper installation.

Yes, I have a 1989 Buick LeSabre that the blower motor quit working. I ran a jump wire from the battery to the blower motor and it works. I have also replaced the relay under the hood that's supposedly was for the blower motor. Any suggestions on what could be the problems? Any suggestion would be appreciated!!!

HELP!!! I have a 95 Buick LeSabre that has 129,00 miles on it. Periodically, without any warning, when I start it up it will cut off without moving. I have had it towed to repair shop 3x's only to be told that "it started right up". They say they don't know what to check if the problem isn't happening when they check it.
check the alternator. i had the same problem with one of my buicks. Then it started doing it while i was driving. kinda freaky.

I have a 2004 Lasabre, when I open my driver's side door and hear the chime from the ignition without keys being in there, I know I will not have any heat or any displays other that a c/f on the display panel. I will also have a power surge where my dashboard is very bright. Any ideas? This only happens in the winter when the temperture is below 32 degrees.

2004 Lesabre Drivers Door ,Power windows and power locks work the other three doors ,locks and power windows Don't work. could it be the switch,or the Door module ?
I have the same problem. I replaced the master control switch and rotated fuses and relays with no success. The only thing that works are the drivers door lock and the drivers window.
Where is the module located? One guy told me there is 1 for every door. Doesn't sound reasonable but some things are not.
Can anyone help ?
Ps I also dis the panel under the back seat.
