For some reason when the car is cold the instrument panel works a little better. Not great but from non readable to readable.

LCD pixels are barely visible. When weather is cold it shows better, but still missing pixels. When it warms up it almost disspears completely. I found this site: that will replace the LCD screen for $139 + S/H and they offer Lifetime warranty.

It was replaced once while still under warranty and then started to die again after a few years. Replacing the whole display us too exoensive on a 15 year old car! Buggers, it still runs great after 206,000!
digital display works fine when cols. When ambient temperature reaches upper 60's top half of display fades

Gauge cluster and radio keep turning off. The radio pauses every few seconds and it's not clear. The cluster goes to safe mode also. Anyone has fixed this issue?
The LED panel is actually intermittently working. 10% of the time it works, 20% of time it is very dim and the other 70% of time it is not illuminated at all.
