I've had my Buick Century for about 5 years now, over the years the quality of my car has seriously deteriorated. Most of my problems are electrical. When I start my car - not only does it like to try and start on it's own when I put my key into accessory (battery mode). This has made me go through about 3 starters including it's original, but once it has started I have absolutely no power. Eventually it will come on. During the summer with the heat it seems like it never wants to work. It will usually start with no problems during the winter months. But now with winter coming I am seeing that electrical issues are continuing, whereas the electricity does not come on. I have no radio, no speedometer, no gas, no mileage, nothing. My heat is also not coming on. The fuse box switch seems to be blown or something every fuse that goes into the fuse socket for the blower motor or relay pops and no longer works. Along with this I had a fuse fire in my car (I think). It happened in my door when I was rolling my windows down one day. Ever since then my windows do not work the same, and over time they do not work at all. I've changed the controller twice and it doesn't work. Along with the window issues- when my controller did work- my windows liked to get stuck. You could roll them down but they would not come back up. One winter I was driving home I had an hour long drive and 5 minutes into the drive the drivers side window rolled down all on its own and was stuck. Luckily it was just very cold and not snowing. All of these electrical problems have been adding on over the years. The first problem that I ever had was the fuse fire in my window. My next issue of concern is the flooding that is happening in my car. It only occurs on the passenger side of the car on the floor. There seems to be absolutely no source for where this water is coming from.
