Why would the digital odometer and RPM meter work intermittently in a 1997 Sebring JX Convertible?

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

If the digital odometer is not displaying its readout or is working intermittently it is a common occurrence that there is a bad solder connection on the instrument cluster.When the digital odometer is not displaying its readout or the digital odometer displays intermittently this problem is frequently reported along with the vehicles tachometer not displaying any readout or working on an intermittent basis as well.The link below shows the steps to repair a bad solder joint on an instrument cluster. It is fully illustrated and not too difficult, took me about an hour from start to finish.

If the speedometer works, but the odometer is not working, there could be a fuse blown if the odometer is digital. If the odometer is not digital, then a gear is broken in the speedometer cable. It should be replaced.

I was told it was a bad BCM. Whatever that is? A BCM stands for Body control Module. It controls the guages. Try for an inexpensive one. I dont know about installation, but you could take the part and your vehicle to your mechanic to have it installed and still saved money.
