Perform the following to see if you come up with anything.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS

1. With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.

2. After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:

DIM TEST.
CALIBRATION TEST.
ODOMETER SEGMENT TEST.
ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION RANGE INDICATOR SEGMENT TEST.

Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Fluorescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
