It is more than likely one of or all of the four resistors on the IPC circuit board. If you can take it apart and soder them back on it will fix your problem. More than likely you will eventually not see anything there if you ignore the problem.

Odometer and gear display flashes quickly, especially when driving


It could be due to the electrical board fuses going bad. I had to replace one for my odometer/gear indicator not long ago on my '98 Century. For some reason it's a common problem for Buicks. If you go to YouTube and type in "odometer repair" there is a video that will show you how to do it,if in fact that is the problem. But the gear shift indicator and odometer are all tied in to the same circuit. If you do try to fix,it really helps to have someone else there to hold the fuses steady whenever you are soldering the new ones in.

Odometer does does not work on 2001 century buick


If the numbers are still working, it may just be a bulb. Get a kid to go under the dash and see if he can see the back of the console. It will be plastic with wires going to various places in it. Those places usually are the lights. Figuring out which is the right place takes communication and time. With the parking lites on, the bulb that is not lit in the likely place is probably the one you're looking for.
Buy the kid ice cream. He'll need a small flashlight.

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.

The gear shift indicator light and the odometer comes on intermittantly on my 2001 buick century


you will need the instrument cluster replaced. there are several companies that rebuild them, take it to a qualified repair shop, I'm sure they have a place they deal with to repair these. you will need to send yours in, as they usually want the old one first, to program mileage.
