Hi. The instrument cluster on this vehicle is not servicable. The prndl2 indicator is serviced with the whole unit. You can find a suitable replacement at your local salvage yard. Make sure mileage is close to the mileage you have or your state may require a odometer dis-closure statement. Hope this information helps!

2002 Buick Regal LS, Had the instrument cluster repaired for lights dimming but 2 years later the gauges have stopped working and the lighting is out again also. Could this be a ground issue?

It could be , but then again GM had instrument cluster problems back then . Bad stepper motors that controlled the gauges .An lighting problems as well . Go to a auto salvage yard an get a used one for $15.00 an see if it works .

Why and how do i fix my 2001 regal milage indicator does not light up

Pull the instrument cluster. These are prone to resistors burning out on the back of the cluster. It happened to mine. You'll need a soldering iron. I believe there are a couple of YouTube videos out there for this particular problem.

2001 buick regal ls odometer doesnt light up?

the instrument cluster is bad, very common. Check with a auto parts store that can get a DORMAN reman cluster, part #599-328 if it has tach, oil gauge, DIC, or #599-327 without DIC (Drivers Info Center)

I own a 1999 Buick Regal GSE with 94K miles. I recently noticed that my dashboard lights sometimes come on, and sometimes don't. Sometimes, during the day, if my dashboard lights are on, and I pull out...

In the 99 Regal, the headlamp switch is also the dimmer switch for the instrument cluster.
With the headlights on, try rotating the switch to bring up the "nighttime" intensity.
If the headlight switch has a pre-set dimming function for the instrument cluster lighting (in other words, not adjustible by rotating the knob), then
replacement of the headlight switch would be the only way to fix the instrument cluster lighting problem.
See Wiring Schematic below.

1994 Buick Regal instrument cluster

I haven't owned or worked on a Regal of that year, the newest one I've worked on was an '88. Best bet would be to pick up a service manual, and it should tell you how to tear apart your instrument cluster, and get to the lamps to replace them.
