You have to remove the dash but it is VERY simple to do.

Remove the fuseblock cover on the end of the dash on the passenger's side.
Once removed, remove the screw holding on the end of the dash.
Now, next to the glove box, to the right, remove the one screw on the bottom. Then remove this panel by pulling it out (it will now be held on by two clips at the top.)
Now, looking at the temperature control cover, remove the two screws from the bottom of this. Pull it off. It also is held on by two clips.
Now, below the steering wheel, remove the one screw from this panel (on the right). On the left there is a "plug" holding it in place, Pop out this plug. I think there are a couple of clips now holding this on at the top.
Now that you have all of that pulled out, pop the dash out. At worse, it is held in with clips.
Now that you have this out, there are four screws holding in the instrument panel. Take out these four screws. You will find one electrical cable connected to the cluster. Pop that off of the cluster and you now have the entire instrument cluster in your hands.

I've had to take mine out to figure out why my gear indicator/odomiter would not illuminate (Buick told me it was a light). I can see where this encased LED has a short (black mark). It is soldered onto the board. Looks like I have to purchase a repaired board.

I hope this helps.

It comes off from the front. Open the front passenger side door and remove the fuse panel access door on the right hand side of the dash. There`s 1 screw to remove frome the dash cover and then pull the cover off. It`s easiest to work the top out and then lift up and out. Then there are 4 screws that hold the instrument cluster in place, remove them and pull it out andf you`ll have access to the bulbs.

Once you do it you`ll find you can pull the ****** out in 5 or 10 minutes.

SOURCE: Removal of serpentine belt on a 1996 Buick automobile?

check if it has a tensioner, it look like a useless pully and put a breaker bar on it and pull it and the belt should loosen up, if theres no tensioner the alternator should have bolts to loosen up the belts.

How to remove the instrument cluster


There is plastic decorative trim that surrounds the cluster, it runs from side to side. Open both doors and on the passanger side you will see a screw holding that end, the drivers side does not have a screw. You need a "L" shaped pry tool.and a flat blade screwdriver, using the tools, start at the outer edge and slowly pry the plastic trim out... it is held in place with spring clips.
carefuly work your way toward the cluster... then do the same thing from the other end. when you got all the spring clips loose, that plastic will lift off and you will see the screws holding the IP in place.

96 buick skylark starts & stalls, theft light on not flashing. Dissconnected map sensor still starts & stalls. No chip in key, changed fuel filter. whats goin on here?


This is pass lock antitheft system not pass key, pass key system is found on newer gm vehicles and has a transponder in the key. Pass lock system has a hall sensor on the lock cylinder.
System Operation
If the mechanical key is not used to start the vehicle, the PASSLOCK?"¢ system is designed to prevent vehicle operation. The mechanical key, in normal operation, will turn the PASSLOCK?"¢ lock cylinder. The PASSLOCK?"¢ lock cylinder will relay a Resistance Code (R-Code) to the instrument cluster. Within a preset time window started from an ignition switch input and will send a coded password to the powertrain control module (PCM). The instrument cluster will determine the validity of the R-Code. For the fuel injectors to operate normally, the powertrain control module (PCM) receives the correct code
Passlock System
Disabling the engine unless the PASSLOCK?"¢ lock cylinder is correctly engaged by a mechanical key. The PASSLOCK?"¢ system is designed to prevent vehicle theft. This system is similar in concept to the Passkey system. The PASSLOCK?"¢ eliminates the need for a key mounted resistor pellet. The components of this system are as follows:
?€¢
PASSLOCK?"¢ lock cylinder


?€¢
Ignition switch


?€¢
Instrument Cluster and Powertrain control module (PCM)


If the theft light is on there is a problem and a code set. You can try to do reset . Turn the key on , don't try an start the car . Let key on for 10 min. till the light goes out, if it goes out turn ignition off an wait a couple of min. then start the car

That is because the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) module has to power up and talk to the Engine Control Module (ECM) before fuel will be enabled.
