2001 Buick Century instrument cluster odometer repair
Had a 2001 Buick century with an instrument cluster that had an inoperatve
odometer, PRNDL display. I noticed when I twisted the circuit board that
the sisplay would flash on. Found some resistors with cracked solder
joints, repaired them and it works again.

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4)
Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD.
In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket
replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004
Buick Century. This is a common point of failure on General Motors' 3.1L,
3.4L, and 3.8L V6 engines, which are used in a large number of passenger
cars across most of GM's model lines.

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

This is a Beautiful car someone took care of it very well and this car has
barley ever been driven. You will be hard pressed to find one with this
kind of miles on it. The original window sticker is in the car and it rates
the car at 29Miles Per Gallon if your driving a big gas guzzler around
everyday than this car will pay for itself in saved gas in less than a
year. Make sure and check out my other videos I always have all sorts of

Replacing Power Window Regulator/Motor on 97-05 Buick Century
Here is how to replace a window regulator and motor in a 97-05 Buick
Century. This procedure is similar in most vehicles. Sometimes the
manufacturer uses rivets instead of bolts, but in that case you can just
drill out the rivets and use nuts and bolts if there is room, or just
replace the rivets if you have a rivet gun. This part only cost $50 (free
shipping) from 1aauto.com for this application, and only took approximately
35 minutes to install. If you have any questions, just use the comments
section or message me!
GM Electronic Gear Indicator and Tripometer Odometer Cluster
Didn't light up anymore. This video is pretty short on details, I didn't
have much time :)
Symptoms: PRND321 and Tripometer/Odometer no longer light. Everything else
works as normal.
What you need:
Basic soldering skills
Rosin soldering flux
Rosin core solder
4 150 ohm 1/5 watt resistors
The 1999 Buick Century dash only has one screw holding the cover that
crosses the whole thing. It is under the fuse cover on the passenger side
of the vehicle.
There are four screws that hold the cluster in the dash, they are in the
four corners. The electrical connector needs to be squeezed from the top
and bottom to be removed.
Apply rosin flux to solder pads on circuit board and leads from resistors
before beginning soldering.
