Every time we see where the PRNDL and Odometer won't light up, its usually the Instrument Cluster itself. The digital readout stops lighting up and it hard to read.

Put a Instrument Cluster in it, and I'm sure you will be set.

Also wanted to add that you can send one of the cluster out for repair for a longer lasting solution.

Places like www.modelelectronics.com and www.specmo.com

are the OEM rebuilders for these. Give them both a call and see who will do it for cheaper!

Hope helps.

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.

No gear indicator, replaced cluster, odometer and PRNDL lights on, but no indicator light for gears. ????? Swapped out instrument cluster, gears displayed on other vehicle, (both instrument clusters)


I had a similar situation. No odometer, fuel gage, etc. Turned out to be loose connection in the relay box that is closest to the battery cables. I opened the box and reinserted the connections. It happened again and I took a hammer and gave the black box a whack and it started working again. I found that when the car is running, my wife behind the steering wheel an me under the hood, that when I manipulate the box she hears a click under the dash and the symptoms appear and disappear. That is where I would direct my attention. I understand it is a common problem on this model from a Buick mechanic.

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.
