Re: Odometer does'nt light up
The bulb is most likely burnt out if it is the style that has black letters with white background that goes around in a circle. if it is digital then there could be something wrong with the dash cluster it all depends on how old the vehicle is.

set the mileage when the odometer is showing. put the key to off position. press and hold the reset button then turn the key to on position, do not start. then continue holding the reset button until the reading stops to zero or blank. turn it off, that should reset the light indicator
First check the bulb, alot of the time if a bulb is burnt out it will show something on the dash, example if a directional bulb is burnt out the dash will show a solid lit directional on the dash. Next check the bulb socket for corrosion, some times you will need to either grease it, bend the tongs up or just replace it. I hope this helps don't be afraid to ask if you need more help!
I have a 2005 Equinox and recently had the problem with the odometer bulb going out. Only the bulb needs to be replaced--NOT THE ENTIRE CLUSTER!! The process to remove and replace the bulb is a simple one. First tilt the steering wheel out of place, pull bezel straight out carefully, and with 7mm screw head remove the four mounting screws and pull cluster out. Disconnect cluster and remove burnt out bulb by giving it a counter clockwise quarter turn. Insert new bulb and turn it clockwise quarter turn. Plug in cluster again, insert the mounting screws, replace bezel. Very simple. The bulb replacement that I used was different than the original but has the same voltage and watts--the old one had a white base with frosted cover, while the new one had a beige base and clear--which made the new light brighter but very workable. I used 39118 Bulb 20210B24 DE66K2 12V 1.5w or this one should work: http://www.rmeuropean.com/Part-Number/Bulb-12V---15W-with-Beige-Socket-Base-for-Dashboard-Instruments-__62111391260_OSR_2439488A.aspx . I hope this helps..
well if you hold the multiswitch back do they come on if so the multiswitch is bad and the odometer is it only mileage or is it everything ex.P R N D 2 1 well if those dont show either and its just a blank spot then does the dimmer switch work for everything else if not well dimmer switch may be bad does the rest of the instrament panel light up? if not theres a 20 amp fuse to replace because ur tail-lamps wont work either and it that is not it you probably either have to have the instrument cluster repaired or go to the scrap yard and get one of which is common for buicks of this year
reset: turn ignition on...push odometer button till it displays mileage on car...not trip milage but actual mileage. Turn car off. Open driver's door, press and hold odometer button....turn ignition to on....hold odometer button for 10 seconds....odometer display will show -----,----,---,--,-,0000000....maintenance lights are reset...lights will come on every 7500 miles to remind you to change oil and check fluids etec....
