Buick ProblemsAir Conditioning will not blow out of front vents
Owners have reported several instances of the air conditioning not blowing through main dash vents, or only blowing through the floor and defrost vents. Often this is experienced after replacement of the battery. During battery replacement, the control module for the mode actuators may lose its memory. Re-calibration of the actuator is required to address this condition.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Buick RecallsSoftware Defect May Prevent Airbags From Deploying
If the airbag system is in a diagnostic test mode during a crash, the deployment of the frontal airbags and seat belt pretensioners will not occur. Dealers will reflash the system software. In the event the vehicle has had a previous airbag deployment, the airbag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will be replaced free of charge.
A fuel line in the engine compartment could contact the engine and chafe, eventually causing a fuel leak. Dealers will replace the fuel line assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The wiring harness to the 8-way power adjustable front seats may chafe on the seat frames, resulting in a short circuit and fire hazard. Dealers will inspect and secure the wiring harness and repair any chafed wires free of charge to resolve the concern.
