1999 Pontiac Sunfire: the odometer stuck on trip meter..mileage..dim

Resolved Question:

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire that has the odometer stuck on trip meter. If I press the button to switch it back to read the actual mileage the most that happens is the numbers dim. Occasionally after you start the car it will flash the mileage but always goes back to the trip meter. What could cause this and how do I fix it?

The problem you have is an internal failure of the instrument panel cluster.To repair this the cluster will need to be removed & sent to an AC Delco repair facility where it will be repaired & necessary internal parts replaced & tested.
