Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
My odometer does not come on. My dashboard lights up but not the odometer. Could you tell me if it is a fuse problem?
I read your problem, and it"s something I"m way too familiar with. My grandfather owns a fleet of taxis, all of them Buick Century"s and Buick Regals. Out of all the cars he owns, two of them have a working odometer. It"s just something that happens randomly to these cars. I"ve owned two Century"s, myself, and the odometer worked in my "99, with 160,000 miles, and the odometer burnt out in my 2001 with less than 60,000 miles. It"s not just a simple repair, you"re gonna have no choice but to replace the instrument cluster. The CPU itself gets fried.
I would like to check the fuse but I don"t know which one to check. Is there a way that I could get a wiring diagram for this car on line.If it turned out that the bulb was burnt out, could you give me a short summary of steps needed to access the bulb or bulbs?Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Jim,Thank you for the donation.The fuse for the panel lights is the panel dimming fuse located in instrument panel fuse box.Check the fuse first. To replace the bulbs requires a lot of data and if it is required, let me know and I wll get it for you.
You answered "on the end of right side dash" Is it close to the glove box? Passenger side? Or is it at the drivers side? I need more clues.
We recently purchased this car however the odometer light will not come on to see the mileage and to see what gear we are in. It does not have an inspection sticker and I cannot get it inspected without having the mileage on it. Can anyone please help me and tell me what my next step should be? Mom in distress!

I just opened up my 2001 Buick Century for the same problem. I think the 2002 is almost identical, so this probably applies to you. It turns out the instrument cluster is one large module. Most of the warning lights are LED's, the constant-on and dimming lights are incandescent bulbs, but the odometer and gear indicator display is an LCD. If it is not lighting up, it is a module. There is no back light to replace. When I got down to mine, I could see the location of a burn-out on the LCD. It is possible the same happened to yours. I was hoping to replace just some back light bulb but it is just not possible. I have not found any reputable dealers with instrument clusters for sale, though there were a few on eBay. I do not know if I want to put those into my car though. I am just going to call up a dealer and see how much it will cost to have them install a new module. (Probably too much, but I am kind of over a barrel on this.) Good luck
