I had this same problem with mine. Dealer wants $500.00 for a new instrument panel. realI only need to replace four resistors in the panel. parts $1.25. Time? about an hour if you already have parts and a sottering iron or gun. I found a video on youtube shows how to do it. It was easy.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 buick century and the odometer and gear

This is a very common problem. I too have this going on. I found a Edmunds Forum and a poster has a fix, at least for him. Link: http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/WebX?14@@.ef22120/307#MSG307 and see if this is your problem too. I ordered a new headlight switch. Its an easy replacement too. Remove the left side dash panel, two screws and the 20 pin connector. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The dash lights for odometer and gear indicator is out

maybe but sounds like a couple of lights have burned out,. the owners manual should tell you where the fuse box is located. The dash light for the odometer/gear indicator may be accessible from under the dash, get an auto maintance repair manual from the local auto parts store , perfably a chiltons for about 20.00. It will help u loctae the dash lights and the fuse box more readily.

Odometer and gear display flashes quickly, especially when driving


It could be due to the electrical board fuses going bad. I had to replace one for my odometer/gear indicator not long ago on my '98 Century. For some reason it's a common problem for Buicks. If you go to YouTube and type in "odometer repair" there is a video that will show you how to do it,if in fact that is the problem. But the gear shift indicator and odometer are all tied in to the same circuit. If you do try to fix,it really helps to have someone else there to hold the fuses steady whenever you are soldering the new ones in.

Transmission


Hey i just had the same problem with my car. the 3rd gear shift fork was broke off in the transmission in my car. however it might just be ur shift linkage. you can check to make sure the pin is moving in and out of the tranny from underneath the car (laying on the ground its on the left side just before the echaust bends to go up to the headers.) and if it is moving it most likely is the shift fork.
But after i had my transmission done my factory keyless entry, interior lights, and headlight door buzzer (when u get out of the car with the lights on) does not work.... also my odometer trip meter resets itself everytime i shut my car off. im still working on finding out what that is.

Odometer indicator not working for buick century custom 2001 about 1 week ago, in the middle of a trip, my odometer stopped reading miles. the push button where u can reset your trip miles is not counting...


OdometerGears.com has the gears for you to repair the odometer. If the odometer and the tripometer are stacked you will need and E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. If the odometer and tripometer are split left to right you will need 2 drive and 2 worm gears. Give them a call and they will offer you a discount for the four gears. The total for two gears is $54.00 and for the four gears is $89.00 both prices include the shipping.
