Same problem with LED panel, some unreadable. Any idea on approx. cost to reapir?
For some reason when the car is cold the instrument panel works a little better. Not great but from non readable to readable.
Display between speedometer and tachometer is faded away
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: www.myairbags.com that will replace the LCD screen for $139 + S/H and they offer Lifetime warranty.
When the weather is cold - the display stays readable for a short while - but eventually fads too.
information is barely readable on panel
Hard to see instrument cluster
center of display begin failing to the point where radio station and temperature can no longer be read. other portions still okay for now
Instrument cluster display is unreadable. Driven this way for 10,000 miles. Have not fixed.
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.
Digital Display Cluster just blank. Will not turn on at all.
In the winter here when its cold. I can read most of it till the car warms up.
Top portion of panel is ok when car is cold and colder weather, but bottom portion is maybe 30% readable... mostly red pixels, but can see p/r/d
pixels faded on 80% of screen
Instrument cluster is out and it's very expensive to repair
The middle portion is unreadable.
I can't see the screen
