cluster question 05 gto

i recently purchased my dads 05 gto auto. it has been sitting in his garage for 2 years and after getting the mechanicals ironed out, I noticed the odometer is blank. no numbers at all, screen is no longer back lit etc. the other 2 screens and all the other gauges work fine. I pulled the cluster and sent it in to my buddies cluster repair shop. he is making it sound like I should start shopping for a different cluster. I problem is, this is a fairly low mileage car at 26k and all the clusters online are higher mileage units. any ideas?

Send it to Bohnman. Mine is on the fritz as well. When I can't see the numbers anymore I'm gonna send my cluster to him. For $125 it's a hell of deal over trying to track down an original cluster.

Here is what mine is starting to do... When on the MPH the background LCD parts light up. The video is harder to tell than in person.

Yeah it's always fun when new problems occur. Driving a gto is like spinning the wheel of broken car parts. You never know where it's gonna land lol.

just a follow up, I sent my cluster to Bohnman Customs, he had it less than a day and shipped it back. Works perfect now. I have spent a lot of time speaking with multiple companies that repair clusters with no help at all. Jeff at Bohnman Customs saved the day (and me a lot of money and headaches)
Highly recommend!
