Buick LaCrosse Electrical/Lighting Problems

  • The 2007 Buick lacrosse cx is nothing but a black eye for Buick. Ours caught on fire in the fuse box. The person I talked to at gm said bring it to the dealer. It is their fault for having a lemon. But they want the owners to pay for their problems. It's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt or killed because of this danger. I hope it gets recalled before then. I am sure this is the last Buick we ever own.

    The car is up to 7 years old. Was it a relay that overheated? What did that relay serve? Were there symptoms about something not working right? When was the car last checked over at the Buick garage?

  • The HDM relay caught fire. It burned all the wires that go to the panel. We would normally not go to a Buick technician to get it serviced. I have my own ASE certified mechanic that works on all my vehicles
  • Hopefully someone's house doesn't catch fire before the problem is fixed by Buick.
  • My Dad left me his 2006 Buick Lacrosse. Beautiful car. But I had the problems with the low beams not working and had to use the high beams to get home. My son replaced the relay for me and it worked fine....for awhile. Then I had to have the relay replaced again (the car parts place kindly replaced it for me) ... it worked for a few months, then it FRIED ! Smoke was pouring out from my hood and the whole relay box melted. Now my car won't work at all ! I canot afford to take it to the dealer and I really need help. I would like to get it fixed so I can sell it and get a car easier to fix. (so sad, I did love this car that my Dad left to me...) any suggestions?

    Hello rammy1946,

    I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing these concerns with your LaCrosse. Have you taken it to your local Buick dealership to have it diagnosed? I would be happy to assist with setting that up for you if you would like to email me at socialmedia@gm.com ATTN: Jonathan A.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Jonathan A. GM Customer Care

    I would suspect your car is initially starting up in night mode where the interior lamps are dimmer so that they aren't too bright relative to the outside lighting. I assume your car has a sensor on the dashtop somewhere for the overhead light from the sun. I notice mine sometimes doesn't sense the daylight even though the sky is light if the sun is at an oblique angle like at near dusk or near dawn.

    Or you may have your wipers turned on which turns on the headlamps automatically. Does your car have the rain-sensing wipers which control the delay positions on the wiper switch? Make sure the wipers are OFF. If left in the lowest delay model in rain sense, the wipers should cycle one time when the key is turned to ON--that would indicate your rain sense wipers are in auto setting. That keeps headlamps on which may affect your day/night settings on the dash.

    I am extrapolating how your 2005 may be based on my 2003 leSabre's settings. If it's the rain sense wipers are on in auto setting, don't feel bad. It took 2 visits to my Buick garage to figure out why my headlamps were staying on during long trips when the car was new.
