    My odometer is crapping out. The bottom half of of the digits are gone most of the time. And the red LCD center section usually does not work. I'm thinking about a used cluster. Does anyone know if the odometer memory is stored in the instrument cluster, or the computer? Thanks, Keen

    The answer to this one is in the owner's manual - and if I had an owner's manual, I'd look it up. Unfortunately my manual has been MIA for years. :banghead: I wonder if someone with a manual would look it up: Following a battery swap, all settings were lost. The owners manual documents a...
