The odometer and gear indicator in our 2002 Regal GS is burned out. The rest of the digital components work except these two. Am I going to have to replace the whole board and what is involved? If I replace it, will the odometer still read correctly?

Here is what it looks like. There are really no SES codes ... the car was just in the on position. :)

the cluster has a or some bad resistors - there are write ups on the regal forums on DIY repairs or I could refer you to a guy that repairs them - heck if you want one to send him so you can continue to run your car I have a couple parts cars with clusters that need repair just let me know...
 
Thanks. I found a decent vid on youtube, so I guess I will run to the Shack tomorrow for some resistors. I can solder pretty good, so this should be easy. Thanks for the search tip.
 
Well, that was a relatively easy fix. The four resistors on the right side fell off the board with just a light touch from the screwdriver. I soldered in some new ones and it is back to normal now.
