2002 Buick Century: 6cyl., and the shift indicator light..mileage

Resolved Question:

Own 2002 Buick Century, 6cyl., and the shift indicator light (which also lights the mileage indicator) does not work. On rare occasions the light has come on but for less than a fraction of a second. How can this problem be corrected and can I handle it? If so, instructions please. If not what would this cost at a Chevy garage?

HelloCustomer does the vehicle still start and run fine?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The car overall operation is fine; no problems. Starts and runs perfect.
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 4 years ago.
Okay. This is typically a failure within the instrument cluster itself. This is an internal short problems that will require replacement of the cluster with either a new or rebuilt unit. If you have a shop take car of this it will typically run $400-500 to have fixed.

I'll give you another try. Can a non mechanic drain and flush the radiator on the 2002 Buich century Limited? Is so, dos it have a drain cock?
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 4 years ago.
Yes, a non mechanic can drain the coolant on this vehicle. There is typically a drain plug on the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom. Not all of them had it though. If there is not one then you need to remove the lower radiator hase and drain it there.
