Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab

2000 F150 odometer flickers on & off

The electronic odometer has been flickering on and off for a while. Lately it seems to be off more than on. I noticed if I click back and forth between the trip od and the total milage it sometimes will come on. Any ideas what the problem might be and/or solution?

The contacts in the cluster are going bad, you will need to replace it but it will need to be programed to the truck or it will not start because of the security keys. If you buy one used it will show the milage that goes with the cluster so you could get in trouble that way, i bought mine from ford for 210.

2008 pontiac g6 security light stays on t/c flashes then while driving the dash lights flicker and odometer says error.

The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip/reset switch for greater than 2 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the body control module (BCM). The BCM uses the vehicle speed information from the engine control module (ECM) to calculate the odometer. The odometer displays 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The IPC stores a backup copy of the odometer value incase the IPC stops receiving a valid odometer value from the BCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Odometer reading flickers on mini message center on ford f150

first thing you need to do (answering as an electronics engineer) is double check all connectors and cables to and from the display, and associates circuit boards. and make sure they are tight. Not being intimately familiar with the boards involved or the display itself, I cant suggest where to look in specific, but it is also possible that you have a bad solder connection or two that need to be redone. SO you may need to spend some time with a good illuminated magnifying glass, examining the boards involved.

I have ran into this problem myself. I had to get a new cluster from the dealer and have them reprogram the old mileage into the new cluster. I have seen this problem a lot in ford.
