Customer Question
HI Bill I recently...

HI Bill I recently got this 2008 Bucick Lucern and I've notice a warning on the dash to service the Lane Change departure ystem. My local Buick dealer says its out of warranty and is telling me he would have to charge me 3 hrs labor to diagnose it.

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on?

Woops sorry Pearl.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Lucerne yourself? What have you tried so far?

I got this car used and I'm not really sure what to do myself. So I'm starting here. I just did not feel it was a good idea to spend $475. SO if I can fix it myself would be much better.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's pretty much it.

Ok usually if you have a lane departure issue its related to either a faulty lane departure sensor that has been damaged or if faulty of the vehicles systems just needs a adjustment and aingment to put everything in working order . There is special tools needed to adjust the system and a alignment rack that you wont be able to do on your own because the dealer is the only ones who have these.I hope this helps please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you
