2008 Ford Crown Victoria P71 Digital Odometer has gone completely out.

(2008 Ford Crown Victoria)
Digital Odometer has gone completely out but everything else on dash works completely fine. I even pulled out the dashboard cluster and resoldered all the points on the board. And I even checked all my fuses and relays and they are all good. But odometer still not working.

Hoping it's just a pinched wire or a cut wire from them removing everything for auction.

My question is what all does the wiring for the odometer tie into and run with throughout the vehicle? And is their anything that if it fails it makes the odometer fail also?
How long have you had this problem? Since I bought the vehicle from auction a few weeks ago.

The odometer reading, if i'm not mistaken, is supplied via data lines from the PCM. The cluster only displays known data. The data is likely still in the PCM -- using a diagnostic tool that can read this data is helpful. Beyond this, you're looking at CAN data lines or a cluster issue.
