A fault has been detected in the circuit and you need to check for trouble codes. Programming might be required for the IPC but this cannot be done by generic scan tools. You would need to go to the dealer or someone with a Tech 2 scan tool.

No mention of such a probabilty but there is no harm trying.

Repair procedures indicates that when the IPC is replaced or you have a fault with the speedometer/odometer, it has to be reprogrammed
