Black(blank) CRT-issue> Buick Riviera 1988


Recommended Posts

Hi from Finland.

I have CRT-issue on my Buick Riviera 1988 T-type.

Could it caused by faulty CRT or other unit like BCM?


CRT-touch screen are black (with no image)

but buttons+beeping sound- will work.

I can also switch on the Radio, when no power

> keys at (ACC left to OFF) Other menus not working. Radio gives no sound, only

bang-noises (like machine gun).

After power up, CRT will go to STATUS-page and stays there.

Also my trunk or fuel - access "3-button-panel" not working.

witch sounds like faulty BCM-module?


I also have engine problem, only 4/6 cylinders

working part of the time + non-working buttons + flasher.

i cheked fuses, all ok.

When I got this Buick, it was left to the back yard and was covered with snow - long time without drive.

Now Buick is in warm garage,cleaned, and got new starter

and starting up with no problems.

Welcome to the forum. It's always nice to get folks involved from places other than the U.S.

Personally, I've found that the best help you can get on a CRT screen is from the members on the Reatta forum. Ask them for help as well; maybe even a replacement part if yours is too far gone.

The Reatta is built on a Riviera platform. The Reatta guys live and breathe this stuff and love to help those of us on the Riviera side.
