Where is the fuel gauge fuse on a 1998 Buick Century?

There is not a single fuse for the fuel gauge , there are a few that power up the whole instrument cluster ! If there were a fuse out more then just your fuel gauge wouldn't work .You probably have a bad sending unit in the fuel tank or the stepper motor for that gauge is bad ! The thing to do would be to take to the dealer or some other capable ASE certified repair shop that has a up scale scan tool that can check codes in the instrument cluster ! Or you can take a chance an replace the instrument cluster !
Fuel Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative
Inspect for any stored instrument cluster Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). Are any DTCs stored in memory?
Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List/Type
Go to Step 3


  1. Install a Scan Tool scan tool.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position.
  3. Establish communication with the instrument cluster.
  4. Select special functions under the main menu.
  5. Select output control under special functions.
  6. Select fuel gauge sweep test under output control main menu.
Does the fuel gauge perform a full sweep when commanded?

Could be the gauge in the dash, the temp sensor on the engine, or the thermostat is not closing to warm up the engine.

Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump

Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

1998 chrysler t & c van. can start the van drive it, then gauges stop, suddenly sometimes

The problem is your instrument cluster. Your type of vehicle is notorious for the instrument cluster failing. It will need replaced, or rebuilt.

The gauge fuel and odometer no work

elinmorta16: Is this problem intermittent, did it come on progressively, getting worse each time, or has it been resolved? I'm assuming it's a 1998 Voyager. I would first and foremost suspect the instrument cluster main harness solder joints. I had a similar problem that eventually caused vehicle to fail to start altogether. After reviewing several posts about it I decided to re-solder all these joints. This didn't initially resolve the no start problem ---- UNTIL ---- I did the instrument cluster self-diagnosis test. With ignition off, hold the trip meter and reset buttons for 10 or more seconds. When I turned the ignition to on, I got the self check sequence displaying on the odometer. After it completed, my dash gauges worked just fine......and the vehicle started again!!

To find the instrument cluster fix, google "1998 voyager instrument cluster solder". You should find several posts explaining it. It eventually worked for me!! God bless those who take the time to help others!

The gauges don't work

The instrument cluster operates independantly of the lighting for them. You could possibly have a fuse somewhere that has blown causing all gauges to stop, or it could potentially be that the cluster itself is bad and needs replaced or this could be a sign of a wireing harness failure of the instrument cluster. I'm afraid your best bet is to take it in and have it looked at by someone trained in dealing with those parts of the system.
