Miles are saved in the cluster so I'd bet you have a bad clutster.

Garage
I don't have a "new" GTO but on my Ford truck the odo stopped working shortly before the alternator failed.

On late models since everything is electrically powered even a slight drop in voltage can cause things to go haywire. I would check battery voltage and alternator output first.

Yeah that would be unfortunate. It stopped right after I changed my oil and had it tuned.

Also check the BCM wires in the dash. They can fray and do crazy things. If you search the forum you can find tons of good into about this common issue.
