Question about 2001 Buick Century
You do not need to replace the instrument cluster! The fix for this is a pack of resistors that you can buy for $1.00 or less. Take the cluster right out and you'll see 4 resistors in the upper-right area on the back of the cluster. You can probably pick them off with your finger, they'll be so worn out. Once those are off, solder new ones on (carefully, don't burn your circuit board) and reassemble the dash board.
I fixed the odometer/gear selector light on my 2001 Century this way and there are videos on youtube that will walk you through the whole process.

More than likely it sounds like the lcd is bad and needs to be replaced, from what i understand if you take it to the dealer they will pull the miles from either your engine or from the eeprom from your cluster and then order you a refurbished one and set the proper mileage on it. I think i was quoted about 300 for parts and about 80 dollars for 1 hour worth of labor.

Hit the dashboard a few times really hard and it will come back on ... for a while.

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.
