    I noticed others having same issue with 1999 buick century odometer and gear shift indicator not lit up. Does anyone know if this is just a fuse or something else. If it is a fuse can anyone tell me which fuse it is.

    Thanks

I just fixed that problem. The problem is loose resistors on the instrument cluster's he printed circuit board. It's four bigger resistors parallel to each other. Re solder them and you are set.

Yes, you will have to have an operational odometer and gear shift display before you can pass inspection. this may be a blown fuse of some sort and, its not a very expensive repair at all. actually, it depends on where you take this vehicle.some tech will pass you and some are very hard on little malfunctions like you are experiencing. the safe thing is to repair it.

Odometer doesn`t work


Thanks. The odometer is driven by plastic gears inside the instrument cluster. Since the speedo works we know the info is getting to the cluster so the plastic gears are obviously stripped or broken. This is pretty common on these vehicles.

You'll need to replace the cluster or have it repaired.

Yes the dealer is right. there are several places that rebuild these for less than a new one. The dealer should be able to send it out or get a rebuilt cluster. If the dealer doenst want to help you, find a good repair shop, they usually have a place they get clusters from.

No odometer light or gear selector. tried changeing cluster didn't work. didn't know if it was a common problem. maybe an easy solution before i start diggin into it.


Thanks Johnyboyy & Sam35edm! I checked my fuse (10amp) and it looked ok. I replaced it and the lights for the odometer and gear shift indicator both lighted up. I then inspected the old fuse and it looked a little tarnished on the contacts. I then cleaned the contacts on both sides of the original fuse with a razor blade to remove the tarnish. The light lit brighter than ever! Looks like the fuse wasn't making good contact in its socket because of the tarnish.

'98 Buick Century has no odometer/gear selector display


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.
