flickering digital odometer /temp guage

My odometer/temp guage is flickering and sometimes going out for a day. It seems to have something to do with heat because its worst on hot days?
Any advise/fixes?

you could remove the cluster and check the wiring connector,but the message center is non servicable and comes with the cluster.

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

I had the same issue on 05. It was still under warranty at the time, they said it was the bulb at first and then ended up replacing the whole cluster. I don't know if it's an issue with a loose connection or just a faulty cluster, but I haven't had an issue with the new one.

Good luck

I had an issue with this on a dodge i used to own...the rear got so hot that it melted the solder and fused it together causing a short and same things were happening...might be it..if its warrantied take it in, if not take out your cluster and check the back
