    unfortunatly there are no replacable parts in the newer clusters. They are a fairly common problem and you may just have a backlighting issue.Take a towel and cover your cluster and look very closley to see if you can read it-if you can replace the backlight bulb. After removing cluster take back peice of and replace speedo head bulb.

    I'm sorry, but we will need to know more information than " it's not working "

    Please post a reply with the following information:

    Year, Model, Make, Engine Specifications, as well as what happened when the particular part malfunctioned / stopped working, also try to describe the events leading up to the malfunction

My 2002 Buick Regal did not pass emission because it says the Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control circuit did not pass. P0446 Could you tell me how expensive that could be to fix. Thanks

No way to tell for sure without further tests. If the vent valve is faulty, replacement may fix the problem (valve and labor to do this will be the cost - estimate approx. $200). However, a number of other problems can cause this DTC so it is best to get a realistic estimate from a dealer.

Electronic odometer is out, went dim and then completely off for 2000 Regal

Go to and search cluster fix. There are resistors on the circuit board that come loose over time.

No odometer

You need to have it solder or change the cluster. If you change the the cluster you'll have to program it. My Buick did the same thing and I had someone solder my cluster and it worked ever since I fixed it.

Service engine soon-2000 buick regal, whirring sound, jerking

The 'check engine' light is reserved only for Powertrain problems that could have an impact on the emissions systems.

Exactly what the OBD system looks for depends on the make, model and year. The original systems varied widely in their capabilities. Some did little more than check whether the various electronic sensors and actuators were hooked up and working.

I suggest scanned the PCM computer (Powertrain COntrol Module) to know exactly what fault code is stored there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

2002 regal would slow down going up hills then

the catalytic converter most likely is no the sorurce of the problem, older design bead type Cat converters used to plug, but it is very rare on the newer ceramic honeycomb cats, u need to have the electronic engine control tested, are u getting a check engije light? if not has the fuel filter been replaced every 30,000 miles? also a part called the Mass Airflow sensor can cause these symptoms as well as igntion system problems.

Electronic odometer in a 2001 Buick Regal Gs does not work

I just wrote this for someone else too. If you're a handy person you can fix it yourself for about $12, it worked for me. All you need is a pack of resistors from RadioShack (On the computer chip there is a location that holds the 4-resistors that operate the odometer, they tend to fall off over the years, all you need to do is solder new ones on) and soldering gun. I did it myself and with this video's instruction and it only took me a little under an hour and $12.00. The most daunting part of it is getting the cluster out of the dash.

1996 Buick Regal - Jerking while accelerating - check engine ligh

I need the fault codes. Without the codes I can't help, just to many possibilities. Have never heard of any fault code that cited Auxiliary emission control sensors" in my 35 years of emission repair on all makes and models. Sooooo... have the fault code(s) read again and write them down. Autozone does this test for free.

My speedometer on my 1992 Buick Regal works but not the odometer.

I worked for Buick from 90-93 as an A tech. The Regals and Cutlass had defective clusters. There is not much you can do other than replace the cluster. (is everything else working on the cluster?)

I had a 1990 cutlass that the odometer quit at 199000. I just kept driving it, or I should say my son kept driving it.
