    Odometer reads "ERROR" most of the time

    My dash panel has issues. I've been living with this for years, but I'll finally try to address it. The odometer reads "ERROR" 95% of the time and the true mileage 5% of the time. I do not know if this is related, but the backlights for the lower row of buttons for the climate control only work 50% of the time as does the backlight for the cruise control panel. Hitting with my fist does not help .

    You might have to remove your dash and fix the wiring. After a while, things like that will start to happen.
