Electrical problem
2003 Buick Century 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I would like to check the fuse but I don't know which one to check. Is there a way that I could get a wiring diagram for this car on line.
If it turned out that the bulb was burnt out, could you give me a short summary of steps needed to access the bulb or bulbs?
Thanks for any help you can provide. Jim Hardiman

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the donation.

The fuse for the panel lights is the panel dimming fuse located in instrument panel fuse box.

Check the fuse first. To replace the bulbs requires a lot of data and if it is required, let me know and I wll get it for you.

You answered "on the end of right side dash" Is it close to the glove box? Passenger side? Or is it at the drivers side? I need more clues.

I checked the 10A fuse in position Column 4 from left, Row 5 from bottom. The fuse is ok.

Guess the light bulbs are faulty. Here are the replacement procedures.
