I'll be interested in the odometer fix. I recently had a similar event happen to be on my way back from a trip to the UP. My odometer went from 58xxx miles to 1607 miles in the snap of a finger. Went in for service and they (Freightliner) found a bad cable connection from the ECM to some other gadget and repaired it. However, they told me that they could not reset the odometer to it's correct mileage display (the correct mileage is always held in the ECM) because that would constitute tampering. I even called corporate Freighliner and was told the same thing. So now every time I need the correct mileage I need to enter the ECM through my info center. What a PITA!

What does Freightliner do with the over the road truckers when that happens? Seems like a major problem for them...

I believe Freightliner has a recall for this dash issue. Mine started acting funny on a recent trip, gauges reading weird. I called Freightliner and they said they've had issues, but mine didn't fall within the recall parameters....great.

I was told to unplug the two plugs at the rear of the dash and reconnect. I did that and the problem was solved. The same issue arose about 300 miles later, so I did it again and left the dash screws out. We were on a 7K trip and I wouldn't be seeing a dealer until we got home. It never happened again. Try the disconnect procedure. The dash cluster should only have 5 screws.
