see if this problem can isolated the connector. I plan to pull the cluster disconnect/reconnect the connector to see if the problem goes away again. If this results in everything working again then try the stabilant.
Thanks again.

which has all of your odometer information. You might try using stabilant 22 on the connections and see if it helps. Can't hurt. If if was a faulty coding plug your odometer would be affected as well not just the trip odometer.

Well the cluster went 5 days fully operational. This morning the trip OD had reset but I haven't heard any chiming yet but I'm sure it will reappear. When I reinstalled the cluster I had trouble seating the brown colored connector. After removing and replaceing the cluster three times it was finally working. In addition to the other suggestions I wonder if the problem is the connector. Everytime I've had the board out and reinstalled it the trip OD and chime worked for a short period of time. Anyway, I'm too frustrated to deal with it for a while.
