You probably have to replace the instrument cluster. I don't know if you can get this at a salvage yard or not but that's a good start.
Most likely you will have to replace the memory chip out of your old one and install it in the new one if you want to retain the miles you had on it.

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.

I have a 2001 buick regal and on the instrument cluster, the P R N D L 2 and the odemeter are no longer able to be seen. Do I have to replace the whole thing?

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!

Odometer light out on a 01 buick century

I had this same problem and I removed the long plastic dash piece that goes from door to door (after removing other pieces which hold that one in place) and then tilt the steering wheel to the lowest position. turn the key and put the car in gear 1 then shut the car off -this enables you to remove the instrument cluster, which is held in by 4 screws. Unclip the back of the instrument cluster and remove the circuit board. On the board to the right of the speedometer are 4 resistors which look like tiny black cylinders -these need to be replaced (if they haven't already fallen off the circuit board). I was missing two and I just touched the other two with my finger and they fell off. I soldered onto the board 150 ohm, 1/8 watt resistors ($1.99 for a packof 5 at Radio Shack). This entire process took me about 30 minutes. I put everything back together in the reverse order I took it apart and my instrument cluster, odometer and gear-shift indicator works fine.

1993 buick century instrument cluster

My experience has been they are not interchangeable - a number of sensors are usually unique to the specific cluster type installed.

Odometer indicator not working for buick century custom 2001

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.
