Late model GM instrument clusters are not servicable. cluster replacement is the only option. Another option may be that the light bulb itself has burnt out. You know see this as the odometer is still working when you shine a light on it. The light bulb is dirt cheap but in order to get at it you have to take the entire dash apart just to get at it which will cost you a few dollars.

How you replace odometer bulb on a 98 Sunfire?

You have to remove the dashboard, then remove the instrument cluster. On the back of the cluster, you'll find that you can unscrew the bulbs from the back and replace them. I've done it myself on my own 99 Sunfire --- CanadianCynosure

How do you reset the odometer on 1998 Pontiac Sunfire?

AnswerThe 98 Pontiac stores the odometer in the instrument panel cluster. The odometer can be reprogramed either by the dealer or there are companies that will re-program it for you (seach google, there are lots). Or you can buy the odometer programmer for about $1000 but its cheaper to just send the cluster module in. (not only is it legal to reset the odometer; its required in most states when you replace the engine. The odometer is required to reflect the mileage of the engine *NOT* the vehicle)
