Question about 2003 Buick Century
Tried 3 different instrument clusters, all display gear indicator on other vehicle, none display on this 2003. What else should I look for?
I had a similar situation. No odometer, fuel gage, etc. Turned out to be loose connection in the relay box that is closest to the battery cables. I opened the box and reinserted the connections. It happened again and I took a hammer and gave the black box a whack and it started working again. I found that when the car is running, my wife behind the steering wheel an me under the hood, that when I manipulate the box she hears a click under the dash and the symptoms appear and disappear. That is where I would direct my attention. I understand it is a common problem on this model from a Buick mechanic.

The resisters on the back of the odometer fell off. they can be re solder if you can find them. That is what happened to mine. i stumbled on video directions on youtube. just pull out you cluster. there are 4 resisters on ther right top side of the of the PC board. if there still there they will be blackend and burned. just roll your finger on them and if they fall off easy there bad. you can buy replacement resistors for like $3 and same your self a $100 to fix or worse. buying a new one. ther resistors i used were 1/2 watt 150Ohm 5% tolerance resistors. and they can be bought from any raido shack. i hope this helps.

Not a Fuse. There are Small Bulbs on the Back of the Guage Cluster that Burn out Occassionally. You will need to Disassemle the Dash and Remove the Guage Cluster to get to these Mini-Bulbs for Replacement. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!
