Angry Temp Guages & Odometer

Just recently my 93 500SEL's odometer has stopped recording at 164,999 miles. Any Ideas what could be wrong? Also my outside temperature is recording temps of 105 degrees, what is wrong and how do I fix both these problems? Thanks in advance

First and foremost... FUSES! Check all fuses and replace instrument cluster fuses regardless of condition. They can have hairline cracks undetectable to the naked eye!

Good luck and welcome to!

Dash Cluster

Sure sounds like the "Dash Cluster" problem the 92 - 95 models have.
Does it act strangly with the lights flashing now and then?

The replacement cluster has a digital odo and retails (I think) for about $750.
I'm about to order mine.
