The instrument cluster display may lose pixels and need replacement. However, if the back lighting bulbs for the odometer display in the center of the cluster burn out, they can be replaced.

There is a kit to repair the pixels. The common issue is a poor contact at the board, the solution is to replace the ribbons going from the display to the contact board.

My instrument display has lost it pixels . Because i don't know how many miles nor what kind of service faults i have on the dash board.
cant read temp on left or gear setting on right still not fixed.
Pixels out in instrument cluster and cannot read digital speed or clock or gear position i.e P D R 1 2 etc. Fortunately the car has the old fashioned needle speedo so I can tell how fast I am living with it in this condition.
Slight pixels missing in a vertical line from mileage to trip.
