Speedo works fine. Digital odometer display sometimes works when I start the truck up, then stops working when driving?

Been told by Ford, its a short in the instrumentation cluster. They want 800 bucks to change it out? Been told by others its a common problem on the year and make of Ford I own?

My 2006 F350 does same thing. I took the dash out and messed with all the wires to see if I could find a faulty wire. Never could find it or make it come on by messing with wires. Put it all back together and it will just turn on some days and then not come on for a month. I'm just used to not being on. Dealer looked at it once and told me it was a short, got it to work for about a week but obviously didn't fix the problem.

there are plenty of cluster repair places I wonder if they can fix that for a reasonable price ?

I think the short is in the cluster design. If it were just a wire I would have found it. Still keeps racking up the miles though dammit!! :-)

I'm sure it can be fixed but I doubt at a reasonable price.
