This is the second time it has happened to me. My headlights quit working. The first time it was not as dark and I caught it . My husband took it to sims Buick on elm rd. Where we purchased it. They said there was no recall on it, but we new there was. My husband paid for the new module and put it in. This time it took place on tues. Mar. 29 and 8:30 pm in the dark. I had 3 girls I was taking home from work and my headlights went out. Almost hit someone along the road and there was traffic coming at me. Thakfully the girls guided me into a driveway. My brights worked to get me and the girls home. My husband checked again and was told there was no recall or fix. He bought the module and replaced it himself. Thank god we were safe. But you need to figure it out before someone gets hurt. And make sure your dealers get the information.

Nhtsa campaign 15v519000 (gm safety recall 14291). This problem results in failure of headlights. I received letter from gm in September 2015. It indicated that a permanent solution was not yet available. Today I checked with gm and they indicated the permanent solution is not yet available and furthermore they have no schedule for completion. Obviously, headlight failure is a significant safety concern (which has happened twice to me). For gm not to have developed a permanent solution, or apparently even a schedule for doing so, is extremely disappointing.

The headlights on my car work intermittently. It has been many occasions when were driving at night and in daytime when all of a sudden the lights go out. There has been several times at night the lights have went out and we weren't aware that they weren't on which is extremely dangerous. When the lights go out we have to utilize the high beams in order to see at night. This first started in the summer of 5/2012 and continues to happen today,.

The regular lights wiil go out while driving, day or night. Sometimes the headlights will not come at all or only one side (driver or passenger side) will come on. I have to often drive around at night using my high-beams. The problem is getting worst, as the lights will not come on for day. Buick service center wants to charge $600 to replace headlights and relays, even though it is a known issue for cars of the same make, model and year.

Low beam headlights can go out at any time while driving. Started happening about 7/2013. Would only drive during day/ had module replaced a year ago when recall notice came out and had lights for a about 6 months with no problem. Was driving going around a corner a couple of months ago, lights went out and I went into ditch causing a bad fender dent and breaking my windshield. Lights can come and go at any time. Thank god, no one was hurt. This could be a major problem. You can use brights, but that would cause blinding the oncoming traffic.

Twice now, my headlights will not illuminate. The first time it rectified itself. This time it has not rectified. The problem occurred when I manually turned off the headlights. I put the car in drive and manually turned them back on and nothing happened. Running lights and high beams do function (14v755000) but I am irritating a lot of drivers with the high beams on. What can I do until this recalled part is available? I have tried to get it serviced at my gm dealer but they have no recall information. So my guess the going to charge me hourly to diagnose a problem that they probably already know about.

After starting car, while it was still dark, I put the car in reverse and the front lights stopped working. They were initially on. I immediately changed to another car for transportation. I later tested the headlights to find that the high beam headlights work, but the normal beam does not.

I have a 2007 Buick Lacrosse that I understand has been under recall since Sep 2015 for bad headlights which may cause the headlights to stop operation at any time. Has the NHTSA been monitoring the problem and why has it taken so long for general motors to correct the problem? thanks and have a nice day.
