Question about 1998 Buick Regal
The battery in my 1998 regal shorted out and the entire electrical system was flkickering on and off. After installing a new battery, the odometer reads "error", the gear select light always reads 2, the temp gauge reads backwards but works, (Hot is cold and cold is hot) and the oil light is now the seat belt light. ( it flashes until seat belt is buckled.)
The temp light is always on. The speedo, tach and gas gauge all appear to work normally.
My question is: Is there a control module for the instrument cluster, or is all the control built into the cluster?
have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.
