Customer Question

Thank you. I was driving my 2005 Honda Accord EX when the odometer indicator and everything else within in that section disappeared and the letters ON came on blinking. When we turn the car off and then turn it on again the correct indicator lights come (odometer, mileage, etc) then go off and the letters (or word)flashes on again. What does ON mean. Thank
JA: It's good that it's giving you information about the problem. The Honda Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No, but I would like to have a good idea of what's wrong before I take it in. Help
JA: OK! The Honda Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?
Customer: It's got about 198,000 miles on it.
JA: Our top Honda Mechanic is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Honda Mechanic in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Honda Mechanic until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This is going to be an internal failure in the instrument cluster and will most likely require replacement.

Have you tried a battery disconnect?
