If the numbers are still working, it may just be a bulb. Get a kid to go under the dash and see if he can see the back of the console. It will be plastic with wires going to various places in it. Those places usually are the lights. Figuring out which is the right place takes communication and time. With the parking lites on, the bulb that is not lit in the likely place is probably the one you're looking for.
Buy the kid ice cream. He'll need a small flashlight.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: odometer light out on buick century not working

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.

Digital odometer barely illuminates and is about


First thing to check is the interior light / dome light control. It is usually located to the left of your instrument panel (where your odometer is located). It you move this dial up or down it will control the intensity of interior lighting.

However, if that does not cure the issue, it is possible that you have a short somewhere, or a bad bulb for the instrument panel. At that point, I'd take it to your local repair facility and have them check it out. Changing interior lighting or testing for electrical failures can be a difficult task.
