This is a common issue with Buick Century/Regal between the years 1997-2004. There are some resistors on the cluster circuit board that have corroded and lose their solder connection. This can be repaired at a reasonable price. Just look for a gauge repair service on the web that can perform this repair. Good luck. Ron @ Speed-O-Repair.

SOURCE: The dash lights for odometer and gear indicator is out

maybe but sounds like a couple of lights have burned out,. the owners manual should tell you where the fuse box is located. The dash light for the odometer/gear indicator may be accessible from under the dash, get an auto maintance repair manual from the local auto parts store , perfably a chiltons for about 20.00. It will help u loctae the dash lights and the fuse box more readily.

SOURCE: 2000 Buick Century gas gauge reads full all the time

You're either looking at a short in the wire that goes to the fuel sender, or a bad fuel sender. If it was just a broken wire, it would read empty instead. The fuel sender is a permanent part of the fuel pump, so that has to be replaced as a unit.

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.

if your refering to the odometer lights going out this happens alot I see. one of the circuits on the back of your cluster shorts and actually gets pretty hot then some times tapping your odometer reset gets it back on usually only a temp fix :O( I read a few years back that odometers are warranteed for life by buick. dont quote me on this as it was about 8 years ago and may no longer pattain. I had mine go out. bought a new one on ebay and 2 years later say thing.

Jump started the car. now interior lights won't come on when I open the any doors. Lighte will come on manually with the dash switch. Changed the fuses under the rear seat to no avail. worked fine before I...

Since your car was the one getting jumped there should be no damage,all I can think is if the batt. was flat dead it may have changed the settings on the body control computer,I would suggest
looking in the owners manual for dome light options ,I think the radio is the "remote control" for a lot of owner options like that.
Also make sure the chassis ground ( the smaller black wire on the neg.batt. terminal) is a good connection.

A mechanic would check for power at the starter and trace back to the key switch. There is a neutral safety switch to keep you from starting the engine in gear that could have failed.
