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.

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.
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:
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.
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

1994 Buick Century 3100 Sedan 6 Cyl 29,000 Orig Miles
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
unique Classic, EURO & Muscle cars and I sell them cheap. Need help

How Instrument Clusters Work & What to do When Gauges Go Bad.
MotorWeek's Pat Goss demonstrates how modern instrument clusters work and
explains what can make gauges go bad. He shows replacement instrument
clusters by Dorman (found under "Body-Interior" at RockAuto.com) that are
relatively inexpensive and often better made than the original gauge
