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.





Buick Century Instrument Cluster Repair
My odometer, shift indicator and radio stopped working suddenly in my car. After viewing a couple YouTube videos, I launch into repair mode, disassemble my dashboard and complete the repair on the instrument cluster circuit board. I try to be as logical and scientific as possible but all along the way, little things are not adding up. Then the irony.

2001 Buick Regal LS Instrument Cluster Repair. The PRNDL and odometer went completely dark and if I remember correctly they had appeared dim in the past. This video shows me remove the cluster, the location of the problems spots on the circuit board and what I did to repair it. The procedure will most likely work for many other GM based vehicle with a similar problem.
