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.
Odometer/Gear Shifter (PRNDL) Display FIX - GMC/Chevy
Common problem from 1999 - 2002 GMC/Chevy Trucks with the odometer/gear
shift all in one display. Some were not completely soldered all the way
from factory causing an intermittent flicker and eventually nothing on the
display. In my case, it was just a loose / dirty connection at the top of
the cluster. The circuit board was also really dirty so I cleaned it as
best as I could. That combined with a shot of white lithium grease to the
pin connector fixed my problem. The truck was flooded at the end because i
was fooling with the ignition a lot without running the engine. Thanks for
watching yall are awesome
