If you find that you have a faulty instrument cluster unit, the first option that you may have been advised of is to have the unit replaced. While this may seem like the easier and quickest option, it can also work out to be costly due to the additional expense of having the unit coded / programmed to your vehicle. Another alternative option available is the purchase of a second-hand used part which comes with a limited warranty, generally, only 30-90 days and this will also need to be coded / programmed to your vehicle at an additional cost, as well as further costs of the unit being calibrated to read the correct mileage.
