Man it felt good to rip tires bringing her home. Guy in front of me took forever to make his left turn. So I ripped tires and smiled all the way home. :)

Anyways, what do you guys think about this? It is stored in an unheated garage, but never problems before, and previous winters have been colder.
I have a 3rd party warranty that covers electronics and such with I believe a $200 deductible.
Anyone else ever have this issue.

Anyone know if those screens can be replaced, or does it come as the complete cluster ? Trying to figure if I can do it myself for less than $200

Hey darkman, how about a PDF on how to properly tear apart the cluster ?

Thanks!

I bet if I have to rebuy the whole cluster its well over $200

Awesome.

Any advise how to expose those two screws. Nothing pisses me off more than breaking tabs off plastic parts.

Well that seems easy, glad I asked though. I hate prying and not knowing for sure if I'm forgetting a screw or something.

thanks again.

about 140 shipped. is the mileage controlled by the computer or is it in the cluster?

From the Service Manual:

ODOMETER

The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC calculates the vehicle mileage based on the speed pulses from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) signal and calculating the mileage for odometer displays. The odometer will display Error if an internal IPC memory failure is detected and DTC B1009 is set.

I have two ECMs with different tunes and swapping them does NOT affect the accumulated mileage.

can't you replace just the display bit

i mean, maybe not easily, but ... I have a feeling it's in the realm of the possible

Hmmm.... Nervous to spend the money to just take it apart and "hope" it goes well.

Looking at these pictures... I am nervous that the screen is integrated on the main circuit board in there.

Aren't there guys on here that have taken these apart to install LED lights ?

Does the defect show only on Transmission Temperature or its there on every readout (i.e. oil pressure, oil temp, etc.)?

It's there all the time, even when the car is off you can see something is wrong with the LCD panel in that spot.

Well maybe it is possible.
