Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. I have seen this issue before, typically it is a failure of the instrument cluster. Sometimes, you will also notice that the mileage wont count up. Is the radio asking for you to put your security code in? thanks. Also, It may be worth it to have your dealer run your vin # and see if the part has an extended coverage, thank you.
