After riding around MONTHS relying on the digital display, I was shown that all I needed was a heavy-duty magnet (industrial as I was told. I borrowed one from the auto shop that was changing my oil and did it myself after instruction). When the car ignition is off (IMPORTANT!!), simply use the magnet to directly on the face of the display and bring the needle counter-clockwise back to the proper side of 'F' as far as it will go towards empty. Then, remove the magnet and turn the ignition on and the gas needle will basically reset itself from there. THIS MADE MY WEEK.. MY MONTH, I tell ya!!!!!!!!! See discussion thread for additional info.

What procedures are needed when changing the battery in a 1997 Buick Park Avenue?

To change the battery is quite simple. First disconnect the battery cables, they should be attached by bolts (I think 10mm) near the firewall. After those come off there should be a stopper holding the base of the battery to the tray. You'll need a deep socket and an extension to reach them. Take them off, pull the battery out and then reverse to put the battery back in.
