About $100, mostly labor on the dash illumination issue.

If you take the odometer out of the dash and remove the black casing around it will expose the circuit board. there are four resisters that cause this problem. buick should've had a recall but didnt. if your good with soldering this should cost little to nothing.

Sorry to say but you need a new instrument cluster. This is a very common problem with all GM lines since 2001.

The dash light that shows the odometer on our 2001 Century has gone out, what is involved in fixing it?


You have to replace the cluster or have it rebuilt. The odometer and trans indicator is lit by led's

The gear shift indicator light and the odometer comes on intermittantly on my 2001 buick century


you will need the instrument cluster replaced. there are several companies that rebuild them, take it to a qualified repair shop, I'm sure they have a place they deal with to repair these. you will need to send yours in, as they usually want the old one first, to program mileage.

I have a 2001 buick regal and on the instrument cluster, the P R N D L 2 and the odemeter are no longer able to be seen. Do I have to replace the whole thing?


Hi. The instrument cluster on this vehicle is not servicable. The prndl2 indicator is serviced with the whole unit. You can find a suitable replacement at your local salvage yard. Make sure mileage is close to the mileage you have or your state may require a odometer dis-closure statement. Hope this information helps!

Light showing odometer and what gear transmission


The cluster will have to be sent out for repairs or exchange by a dealer or see Model Electronics.

Odometer indicator not working for buick century custom 2001


You do not need to replace the instrument cluster! The fix for this is a pack of resistors that you can buy for $1.00 or less. Take the cluster right out and you'll see 4 resistors in the upper-right area on the back of the cluster. You can probably pick them off with your finger, they'll be so worn out. Once those are off, solder new ones on (carefully, don't burn your circuit board) and reassemble the dash board.
I fixed the odometer/gear selector light on my 2001 Century this way and there are videos on youtube that will walk you through the whole process.
