The problem is in the instrument cluster. It needs to be checked out.

This is a very common problem with these cars as they age. I have seen a number of them where the odometer was blank and/or working intermittently together with the tachometer. The only reliable solution is to get a new one from a dealer.

not trying to make anybody mad but i have the same problem if you take out the cluster then pull off the cardboard from the back there is a small blue resistor it will have a burnt spot where they are you or some one you know could clean it and re solder the contacts i did it and it worked great now hardly any cost to you i hope this works for you Robert

Can a digital odometer be adjusted?

Its not illegal to change the digital odometer on a car. Any digital odometer can be program. I can program a digital odometer from the oldest to the newest cars. Some cars I need to have them with me, but most can be sent over the mail. Go to All cars have either an eeprom or a microcontroller that saves it in memory. You only need to know how to program the chip or the processor and what memory to change, what to change it to. Its not cheap equipment and software, but to have it done is cheap. Changing a digital odometer is not illegal, making profit off of it or not disclosing that it has been changed is illegal. I'm pretty sure that's illegal
