Sounds like a bad connection...it may be a quick fix with the connector in the back of the gauge cluster...perhaps the pins aren't fully making contact...if that doesnt do the trick..then it may be a case of "cold solder"...if you know how to use a soldering iron and have one...just re-solder all the joints inside the gauge cluster pertaining to that LED area and trace the cicuit board for any other traces to that LED part and resolder those as well...but make sure you know what you are doing in terms of soldering and circuit tracing.research it...

you have to replace the instrument cluster, thats not a bulb, its a digital display. any auto shop should be able to order one for you.

1999 buick century odometer light does not work


this is a common problem and the dash cluster must be removed and sent out for repair, cost is about $175 to replace the LED (Light emitting diode) display that has burned out, this is a faxtory defect as far as this expert is concerned, it is not a fuse problem.

2001 Buick Regal lights for odometer and PRNDL sometimes fade, sometimes go to black, and at other times, light up.


Wrong! Non of the above. I just fixed that problem. The problem is loose resistors on the instrument cluster's printed circuit board. It is four bigger resistors parallel to each other. Re solder them and your odometer cluster is back to perfect.

The led for the odometer and prn123 is out.


Your best bet is to get a repair manual that tells you how to get the gage cluster out, and pull the bulb out that's behind it and put a new one in it. The book should be about $20 unless you want to try and go it alone, but I'd advise a book so you don't break anything. And the bulb you can probably get at Walmart for $2. Unless it is a specialty bulb, then you would have to check parts stores or the local dealership.
