He is wrong about the cluster the cluster only disply the mileage like a monitor on a computer the body control module figures the miles stores it and displys it on the odometer. Its a very common problem on those cars usually brought on by disconnecting the battery or jump starting the car mainly too low of voltage to the body control module. Its your body control module that is bad not the cluster or odometer. Its really common on that car for the body control module to go bad I have replaced a lot for that very reason and a lot more for other reasons. Usuall once the mileage jumps like that the mileage will show like 20 miles for every mile drive or so instead of a actual mile. You will have to take it to a dealer to have it replaced the new one has to be programed and have the correct mileage programed in. You have to get a new one once the mileage is programed it cannot be changed so the used one has the mileage from the car it came out of. So looks like you have a 2000 ls with a four cylinder engine so the only bcm that will work is a 2000 ls for with the four cylinder. There is two body control modules for each year for the four or six cylinder one other years are not interchangable. Just want to let you know that in case you look for a new one on ebay.
