In September 2001 we began experiencing an intermittent, but extremely dangerous failure of the lighting system. At night, the headlights and interior lights would suddenly go out completely. This happened with the headlights set on the twilight sentinel control and also when we used the manual headlight switch. To get the lights back we had to bring the car to a complete stop, then turn the car off and restart. We live in a rural area where the roads are typically curving with no street lights, making it extremely dangerous to safely bring the car to a stop to the side of the road so you donT block the road for cars coming from behind.I found this same condition reported in an existing NHTSA recall on the 1995 olds 98, which shares the same chassis, headlamp module, and twilight sentinel option. The NHTSA campaign id is 94V190000. We had the car repaired at our local authorized Buick dealer and their note on the completed repair order confirmed the condition and cause. They proved that the headlamp modeule was at fault and replaced it.we have contacted both Buick customer service and corporate offices, and they are denying that it is a safety defect.

At 6:04 a.M. on 4/28/2000, while traveling at 75 mph on muskogee turnpike, the headlights went out on our 95 Buick Park Avenue. This car has twilight sentinel. When pushing the headlamp switch, nothing happened, could not get lights to come on. This car has had mutliple electrical system problems. We were able to pull to side of road and wait for daylight. Later, the lights would come on for 3-4 minutes and go back out. Dealer says we have to replace the lamp control module.
