Consumer states that the dashboard lights and the vehicle shift lights do not work. When these do not work, the tail lights do not work either. The consumer found out when someone told him the tail lights were not working. The dealership has fixed the problem twice, but when this happens, it only works for a day. The consumer has contacted Buick. Consumer noticed the tail lights were not working on Saturday, July 9, 2005. He had been driving without the dash board lights not knowing the tail lights were not working.
