Buick Century Odometer

Fixed a non-working odometer gear selection indicator. Problem is 4 resistors on the back of the instrument panel cluster (ipc) that come dislodged over time due to a manufacturing defect.

2003 Buick Century Odometer Instrument Panel Repair
My 2003 Buick Century PRNDL and odometer lights are dim. I've seen a few videos on YT explaining that 4 new resistors need to be soldered, how to remove the dash panels and how to remove the instrument cluster. I also watched a video on "why and how to properly solder". I've never done a repair like this and I've never soldered before so those videos were well worth watching. I also read my newly purchased soldering iron instruction manual PRIOR TO BEGINNING. I decided to do this project and recorded my steps to show how easy it was, the tools I used and the cost. The video is kind of long because I wanted to show how a person soldering for the first time could easily succeed. Thanks for watching and the thumbs up.





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.





DIY Odometer Reprogramming
A simple instructional video illustrating how to program your digital car odometer using simple electronics, a computer with a serial port, some soldering knowledge and an understanding of hexi-decimal programming. LINK TO EXCEL SPREADSHEET FOR ODOMETER DECODING: https://mega.co.nz/#!LkAh3RqR!iCOewuDWPV1gF-nF6eVWwPdFIuuuXsQInzQkIu1FII4 Most vehicles store their digital odometer reading on the instrument cluster on a re-writable EEPROM chip. Once the chip is located, it can be de-soldered from the board and connected to a computer's serial port where its data can be downloaded and manipulated. The data on the chip is coded in inverted hex values. Through experimentation, a pattern was observed that related the values to the digits on the odometer's LCD display. The data is then edited and rewritten to the chip, which is then re-soldered to the odometer board and put back into the car. Legal stuff: It is illegal to modify or roll back your odometer reading without full disclosure to a potential purchaser of your vehicle.
