Consumer owns a 2001 Buick Century custom. Consumer complained about several problems. One of the problems concerned the ABS light coming on. This has been going on for a couple of years. The ABS light will come on and then go back off. Had taken vehicle to dealer to see what problem was on August 1, 2005 when the light stayed on. Also, service vehicle light/trac light came on in conjunction with the ABS light. Another problem concerned the low tire light coming on. This happened when the wheel was removed from vehicle. Another problem concerned the power window. Consumer went to dealer, and told him that the passenger's rear window was falling down by itself, the dealer said that the register broke. Consumer did not want power windows. He wanted roll up windows which were trouble free. The ABS brake sensor wiring harness to the right front hub was discovered by consumer visually hanging down on August 11, 2005. Upon inspection at Goodyear. Technician stated wiring harness had been pulled off possibly by road debris although consumer didn't see any cut, abrasion, or impact. Hub assembly required to replacement because ABS sensor wiring damaged in hub.
