I have a 97 Acura RL that i have just changed the cluster

Customer Question

Hi , i have a 97 Acura RL that i have just changed the cluster bulbs.
Once reinstalling everything works properly except the odometer , if i travel 1 mile the odometer shows 2.5 -3 miles.
I have tried a spare cluster that i have and same thing.
Is it possible that the firmware needs to be re flashed?
