    I never noticed it before I had a plow, but it has happened twice now that ,after an hour or so of plowing, my digital odometer goes dark, blank and works fine the next morning. Obviousely it doesn't happen every time I plow. Both times it did this, it was windy while plowing, some snow blows up over the plow(no rubber deflector) ; maybe has nothing to do with it, just what I observed other than heater is on all the time, plow route lasts around 2 hours(thinking maybe odometer connections get too hot) ......?????

    Anyone else have this problem?

    GM have problems with their instrument clusters. May need to replace it, especially if you gauges start reading wrong.

    I sent the whole cluster, odometer piece for repair to fix a few guages, over a year ago, cause they were reading wacky and since then, no problems till now.....

    Repair or replace? The Dorman replacement comes with better components then the OEM one has. Its not cheap but worth it.

    I have replace 6 of these in different trucks without any repeat of the problems.
