1990 Buick Century Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1990 Buick Century

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

The inside door handle may break causing the door not to open from the inside.
