Question about 1998 Buick Park Avenue
My battery went dead on my 2001 buick park ave and when I tried to start it the gas gauge flipped all the way around. I went out and bought a new battery but now my gauge is being stopped by the tab it usually sets on when you shut the car off
I had the same problem. I carefully removed the dash panel around the dash board (it just snaps out), undid the dash board mounting screws, took out the dash board assembly, disconnected it, removed the plastic lens, and gently turned back the needle. To make sure it didn't happen again I drilled a tiny hole opposite the little post already there (next to the full side) and screwed a tiny screw into it. I then put it all back together and it has worked ever since. While I had it a part I also put a tiny screw on the temperature gauge side so it wouldn't have the same problem. Good luck.

You don't need to remove anything. Get a magnet. I used a 65lb one.
Turn igniton OFF! Pass magnet in a COUNTERCLOCKWISE direction
just over the gauge and the needle will snap back into normal range.
SiMPLE! I went to HarborFreight Tools and got a 3 dollar round picture
hanging magnet. Keep magnet over just the gas gauge. You don't need
to even touch the dash. just hold it close. No damage and no paying to have the dash pulled apart.
