hello

Ok

these dashboards are sadly prone to sudden failure and can also stop reading the overall milage or speed or stop altogether

I'd say you have 2 options

1 locate a working cluster in a scrap vehicle

or

have your cluster repaired by a specialist

the drawback of fix 1 is that the system will then display a higher milage on teh car if the donor has done more miles than yours

so if your milage is at 60k and you fit a cluster from an 80K car then it will show 80K

if you find a cluster thats lower than 60K it will still show 60K

cluster repair firms are:
