Ok, so the digital odometer is glitching out on my 94 Fleetwood. Usually when I start the car, it's fine. Then, as I hit bumps, it'll alternate between the correct reading, "Error" "Errorrorr", "Err", 535,435 (or some other crazy high mileage number in the 500k's..), 000000 (yay! Instant new car!.. Oh wait..), and back and forth..
Everything else is fine - the trip is rock solid, speedo and fuel guage are fine. Having pulled apart another cluster and applying power (and eventually frying it. Doh!), I know that the three sections are independent of each other, so I'm not too worried. But it's bugging the hell out of me.
Question is, has anyone experienced this and fixed this themselves? I'm hoping it's a matter of one of the contacts of the VFD display having lifted or cracked and it's a matter of re-soldering it all for that particular display. I'm really hoping it's not the controller chips, or whatever chip it is that's retaining the mileage info in memory.
Before any says "Refer to the FSM".. this is the one area it's of no use - all it says is "Send out for service" for any issues regarding the cluster itself.
