The odometer goes on and off. Sometimes I can bump dash and it will come on, and sometime not. But ususally comes on everytime I crank up. Read where soider in cluster board might have bad connect. Can this being done? If so. How do I take it out step by step. And not break something. I have worked on my autos, so I have an understanding of mechanics.
thanks.
