Answer
it could be because one of your tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, etc. the dash light goes off to let you know this. there is nothing wrong with the dash, probably. then again i have also seen minor electrical parts fried that cost an immense amount of mula. try the lights new answer
i hit a deer once and that same thing happenned to my '88 century. I ended up replacing a fuse in the dashboard fusebox that, in the manual that came with the car (if i remember correctly) did not directly correspond to either the dash lights or rear lights. only after checking ALL the fuses and after the replacement of this supposedly unrelated, yet obviously blown fuse, they worked.
My wife decided to jump start another vehicle during our ice storm and burned the contacts in the light switch.. which was the contact to bridge the dash/taillamps

New answer:
I had this same problem with my 1990 Century. All my lights worked (except dash/tail) and my fuses were good. Replacing the head light switch took care of the problem. I hope that helps

The 1989 Buick Century oil sender is located inside of the oil pan. You will need to remove the oil pan in order to view the oil sender.

The starter for the 89 buick is located in the front of the engine under the exuast manifold... Can be accessed from underneath the car.. will need to jack the car up somewhat to get to it.

I cannot speak for all models, but my 1989 Buick Century has a drainage valve located near the bottom of the radiator on the driver side of the car, and can sometimes require pliers to open. It's usually easiest to look for it from under the car...

The plastic covers can be popped out with a screwdriver or other flat object. Be careful not to break the plastic tabs that hold them in!

Remove the eighty thousand nuts that retain it, remove the sockets, slide it out and reverse procedure to install.

I have the same problem with my 1989. The best I have found so far is this: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_change_an_ignition_Switch_on_a_90_Buick_Century

You are probly dealing with a couple fuses being blown in your fuse panal. Check your owners manual, I think there is a specific fuse for guages, and another for interior lights. I am willing to bet you have other lights out on your interior you probly havent even noticed. Your fuse panal is located under the dash, on the left of the steering column.
