Time to upgrade the cluster with a nice NL one, with matching low K's of course :wink:

Would be OK if wound back KM's but not add 400000 of them. I thought maybe it had gone in to Diagnostic mode maybe. But you got to do a sequence of presses on the Trip button to get that up. Weird. You didn't run over a Black Cat maybe??

There are people who can clock back the digital cluster but it costs around $200 which is abit dodgy though.

Hi all, new to the boards here, just came over from FordForums.com.au

Interesting that it has turned to a 5... have you tried putting it into diagnostic mode? Might clear up the display??
