Lucerne 6-cyl

  • 52,454 miles


I own a 2007 Buick Lucerne. Since I retired the car would sit in the garage for a few days whereupon it would go dead. I called onstar and had the car jump started but it kept happening. So the dealer finally took it in and tested the draw. They found a defective onstar module and another module connected to the door and lights that were bad. It has been fixed and so far so good until today when I was driving down the road and it just stopped dead. So I do not know the outcome of this failure yet. The only problem being it is now 2,000 miles out of warranty.

The contact owns a 2007 Buick Lucerne. The contact received a recall notification under NHTSA campaign id number 10V240000 (electrical system). The contact was not in agreement with the recall remedy repair which does not correct the problem. Also, he stated the defective part should be replaced with a new part, not to disable and remove the part as mentioned in the recall. There was no failure mileage

Re: 2007 Buick Lucerne. In daylight driving the instrument cluster is not visible. Very hard to read odometer or gas gauge, have contacted dealers with no success in solving problem.

2007 Buick Lucerne engine will shut down without any notice. Consumer states that the engine problems have been on-going for some time now and would like to have the vehicle replaced by the dealership. The consumer stated the engine cranked, but would not start. The dealership claimed the problem was a defective ignition control module and various electrical connections were loose and corroded. The vehicle shut down on 7 different occasions. The left rear window would not close. The problem was diagnosed as a twisted regulator cable.

I parked my 2007 Lucerne for 17 days while on vacation. When I returned, the battery was dead. There was nothing plugged into the car like a phone charger or anything else. After charging the battery, I took it to local dealer who kept it for over two weeks, performed a parasitic draw test, and basically found nothing except a 201ma current draw over 7 days. The battery and charging systems checked ok. They couldn't tell me when or for how long that 201ma draw lasted or what caused it. They claimed that since they could not duplicate the problem, they can't fix it since it's "within specs" at this time. I brought car home and let it sit untouched/undriven for 3 more weeks to try to duplicate it being parked on my vacation, and there was no battery discharge problem. However, I feel I can't trust the car to be parked, unused, for any length of time (more than 2 weeks) for fear the battery will discharge again.
