What is the issue with my car?
Buick Mechanic: Amedee, Buick Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Too early to tell. Some testing needs to be done first. I can help point you in the right direction.

Try disconnecting the headlight switch and see if that helps.

Also, check to see which circuits have power going to the rear when this happens.

Let me know.
