I haven't owned or worked on a Regal of that year, the newest one I've worked on was an '88. Best bet would be to pick up a service manual, and it should tell you how to tear apart your instrument cluster, and get to the lamps to replace them.

I own a 1999 Buick Regal GSE with 94K miles. I recently noticed that my dashboard lights sometimes come on, and sometimes don't. Sometimes, during the day, if my dashboard lights are on, and I pull out...

In the 99 Regal, the headlamp switch is also the dimmer switch for the instrument cluster.
With the headlights on, try rotating the switch to bring up the "nighttime" intensity.
If the headlight switch has a pre-set dimming function for the instrument cluster lighting (in other words, not adjustible by rotating the knob), then
replacement of the headlight switch would be the only way to fix the instrument cluster lighting problem.
See Wiring Schematic below.

Instrument cluster lamp replacements

I had same problem. I bought a used HVAC control head and fixed it that way.
(Prior to doing so, I removed my original control head, took it apart, and looked for bulbs to replace -- but couldn't find any. I think LEDs are used instead of bulbs, as I recall. The problem, I figured, was with one of the electronic components on the little circuit board in the back of the control head, because LEDs usually will not burn out like an incandescent bulb eventually will.)
Then, I had to send the used one back for another, because the used one (from a junk yard) did not light up either. This was done for free, however, and I finally got one that worked. Then I used the buttons from my original unit because they looked cleaner than the ones on the replacement unit. The final result was satisfactory. The HVAC control head does light up at night, dims properly with the cluster dimmer, and controls the HVAC as it should.
Where to get it from a junk yard? Sorry, I can't find my notes on the website but I did a Google search on used auto parts. It was a company that had access to "junk yards" across several midwest states and maybe nationwide.
