Sadly no, there is no fuse or bulb to replace. You either have to send the instrument cluster out for repair or replace it with a new unit from the dealer. You could also obtain a serviceable one from a salvage yard. Most shops should be able to replace the instrument cluster or advise who can repair it.

    Had same problem with my 1998 Buick Century (this should work for all newer Centurys). Replaced the blown resistors as perUtube video:BlownRegalLSX . I feel duty bound to spread the word. Hardest part was getting up the courage to remove the trim to get the cluster out. Followed the soldering instructions on the back of the 15watt soldering pencil that I bought at Radio Shack. Don't forget the flux.

    I have the same problem on a 2000 buick century custom, how did you determine which resistors were bad and where were you able to get replacement ones? I stoped by a dealership the other day and they said it would be about $400 to repair, and that most of it was the labor in getting at the cluster.

    The blown resistors are easy to locate (If they have not already fallen off). You can run your thumb over them and easily dislodge them. Again the Utube video shows the size to order at Radio Shack and how to cut, bend and solder them on. This is not rocket science but you have to work up your nerve (practice too). Save your $400 bucks for the replacement of your intake manifold gasket when in inevitably goes out.

Dash lights either work or not if the system is fused. With one light not working it suggests the problem is the lamp(bulb). I am sorry to say it has to be dash insert out to access behind where the lamps are located. Only competent people should do this for you. Only when the lamp is checked can you determine if thats the problem or if the fault is else where.

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.
