Hi! My friend,
I have similar problem. The LED light for gear information plus odometer won't shine on. I took
action to access the package containing the impacted part. I found out the problem originated
from the loose contact somewhere inside the package. The way I sorted out this real problem is
to squeeze/bend the plastic package; then, the LED light will show up and go off if loosing the squeeze.
This problem came from poor QA in GM Purchase. Somehow, the electronic connection became loose
after frequent vibration or owner usage during years of auto driving. If GM can't guarantee its QA, its
design should not bind an auto owner to make expensive amount for just one or two LED malfunction.
Wish this finding can help your problem.

Check the 20 amp fuse in the lower left part of the fuse block under the hood. You might not have any tail lights either if it is blown.If it continues to blow, have it checked out.

the dash has seven or eight small bulbs illuminating the entire area, and approx 3 of them are for the speedometer/odometer area.
It seems odd that those are the first to go, but most likely the problem.
It often requires removal of the instrument cluster to swap bulbs. not too bad, but sometimes tricky.

SOURCE: odometer not working right.
There are some cases of cold solder joints finally giving up after some time.
F150online has a how to in the electrical forum on this procedure, if you are comfortable with a soldering iron.
Takes a bit of time, but much cheaper than a trip to the dealer.

I have 2 centurys and you cant see milage or what gear in either one. I have read you have to send the dash display in for repair, do a search to find who to send it to

ILL.1" through "ILL.6" displayed in the odometer field indicate the level of the dash light dimmer setting. These messages will be displayed briefly when the dash light dimmer setting is adjusted. In the '05 Subaru Outbacks, dash light dimmers are known to fail. When they fail, the "ILL.n" message will appear sporadically in the odometer display without changing the dimmer setting. Replacing the dimmer will correct the problem.
Hope this helps
