Instrument cluster displays tend to fail, especially the clock and gear indicators; the instrument cluster needs to be replaced.

  • Entire instrument cluster failed. Had to pay out of pocket as car was not under warranty any longer. This should last the life of the car.

    gear indicator light does not come on. It came back on when the engine light came on, once the engine light went off, the gear indicator light turned off and does not come on anymore. I could not find any solutions to the problem....
