intermittent odometer

My odometer will flash in and out while driving down the road. sometimes it will be on for a while other times it doesnt come on at all. I can tap on the cluster and it will sometimes turn on. it is keeping the miles though i verified with my phone. Do i need a whole new cluster or is there something i can do to fix the issue.

2005 6.0 ccsb 2" leveling kit, 35" duratracks, blue spring, 4" turbo back, bullet proofed, sct live wire w/ KEM tuning, 58V FICM with KEM tuning, DIY Coolant filter, Batmowheel... more to come

Wish list- regulated return, injectors,tubo this list could go on and on.

I had this same issue. Brought it to a local speedometer shop and had it fixed within 20 minutes (and replaced a couple burnt out bulbs as well). Apparently the board connectors needed re-soldering. $75 but local prices may vary...

Mine does the same thing. Sometimes it wont come on for days, sometimes it works for days. Im going to tear into it because I have 2 instrument cluster bulbs to replace too(I will replace them all)
