Tell us more!I'm guessing that your OD doesn't work at all? Is it an electronic or mechanical display?

I've repaired mine.

Let me guess....the digital display is flickering...right? It's cold solder on the LCD display. Here's what I did to fix it:

Remove whatever you need to to get to the cluster module (or whatever it's called). Take a look at the PCB. There should be a row of pins from the LCD display....and some of them should be loose. You'll have to resolder them....but it's trickier than it seems. First, there's some nasty conformal coating on the PCB wgich is very thick and needs to be removed around the pins before soldering. And second, either the LCD display pins or the solder pads (can't remember which) are made of a metal that is very hard to solder. Rosin flux didn't work very well....but it helped. Just try to use low heat if possible...or the solder will start to bead and fall off. Frustrating. But after all that, reinstall the module and it should work.

Unfortunately for me, when I reinstalled the module in my dash, the light bulb behind the odometer burnt out shortly after. This really sucks because not only do you have to uninstall everything again, but you have to remove the LCD display just to get at the tiny light bulb. So if that happens to you, it's a small 9v bulb....not easily obtainable locally. You'd need to order them though a supplier like DigiKey.

Good Luck.

Just bought a 99 Sunfire Gt. It had the odometer light out.

I pulled out the gauge cluster and on the back is a steel cover.

Remove the cover. Then where the odometer is you will see a red clip, turn to the left and remove it. It as you will see is a bulb. You can rip on off another one at the wreckers or. You will need to go to Parts Source and get the smallest(closest match in size) 12volt bulb $2.00 and then go to an electronic repair shop and have them solder in the new bulb $4.00. (you can have them solder it direct to electronic board, that's what I did).

By the way DO NOT USE AN LED OR A SUPER BRIGHT

Just tooling around on my sunfire and figuring things is what I do best.

A new gauge cluster is what everyone told me...bull I have done this repair and it works like new, beeen working
