Question Odometer crazy!!

Have a 2004 dodge laramie 4x4 and the digital odometer goes all over the place it has 120000 klms on it and some times the odometer says 12000 or 1200 or 00000. The dealer says the dash unit has to be changed out, didnt ask how much as I might as well buy a new truck. Can a person buy a used dash from the same year and just swap it out myself without any computer issues? Thanks in advance.

You do not need the whole dash assembly you just need the instrument cluster which you can get at any local Scrap yard

Question Odometer Crazy

I went to the dealer and they say I have to replace the gauge cluster and man its not cheap from dodge. I asked if I could replace with a used one and they say replacing with a used one is no better than the one I have although the odometer on the new one should work it is used and they wear out. Government salvage where I live has one for sale, can I just remove the old one and replace with the used one? Thanks in advance.

Check with the yard and see what they have to say . Tell them you'll do it in their lot and if it works you'll take it .
