Question about 2001 Buick Century
I have a 2000 Buick Century 4D. My odometer and gear/trans indicator cluster do not illuminate anymore. At the same time my gas gauge stopped working accurately. The gas gauge shows that it's full almost all of the time. When I refuel, it shows that the tank is empty for a few minutes, then goes back to full. I've read that to fix the odometer I should replace a few resistors on the entire instrument cluster board. I've also read that it may just be a light bulb. From the looks of it, the odometer and gear indicator have their own housing on the board so I do not understand how a bulb can be the culprit. Any ideas? I can't pass inspection until I fix this problem. Thanks so much everyone.

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.

This is a very common problem. I too have this going on. I found a Edmunds Forum and a poster has a fix, at least for him. Link: http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/WebX?14@@.ef22120/307#MSG307 and see if this is your problem too. I ordered a new headlight switch. Its an easy replacement too. Remove the left side dash panel, two screws and the 20 pin connector. Hope this helps.
