NO. Thats a common thing, you need a Istrument cluster. I'm sure your local garage has a source to get one from.
I had this problem also. I spent alot of money for a used instrument panel only to have it fade and go out again ( common defect from the factory). I finally fixed it FOR GOOD! myself. You need to take out the cluster and solder in 4 new resistors, and the problem is solved permanently. It's really not hard to do, and you can get a 5 pack of the resistors (150 ohm 1/2 watt 5%tolerance) at radio shack for under 2 dollars. there is an excellent video on you tube that will guide you through the whole process. just type in prindle out buick century in youtube and you will see it. I'll try to include a link here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtRINop3gE8 You will be pleased with the results, and surprised how easy it is to fix.
