you likely have the classic cold solder joints on the resistors on the instrument cluster for mileage read out. Common on 96

Often just "re melting" the solder fixes the issue.

Removing the instrument cluster is not hard. Use a low watt soldering iron with small tip

There likely are several "how to" videos if you search

Pull instrument cluster, replace burnt resistors, mount heat sink somewhere, put back together. Easiest job on the car.

Thanks there Blak- I had VERY infrequent odo fade on my SS some time back, but haven't noticed it for years since. It's been getting more noticeable now with this weather. I usually don't drive it in winters, so it may have been a freezing weather issue for quite some time. Anyway, will be ordering the kit thanks again. And din't realize NAISSO still out there. Now do they still have those 140mph window stickers hmmmm...

IDK the Impala SuperStore was still in biz but that is where I got my odometer fix kit SEVERAL years ago. Easy install but you do need to have the right solder iron or you can really FU the circuit board.

I did this when my 96 Imp was under warranty .. dealer said it will take one week and they were gonna put another odometer in .. I said not gonna happen .. so I got info from other owners with this and I got the shop manual .. took me 45 min to simply resolder those odometer resistor joints .. using a 35 watt soldering iron and a small amount of rosin flux lead solder . still working 21 yrs now .

GM trucks have had these dash soldering failures over many years many other dash issues on GM Mexico work ..

DO NOT CHANGE THOSE RESISTORS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOME DID !

See post #23 he uses three 100 Ohm 2 Watt resistors. By using the resistor leads he bypasses the burnt circuit board.

I have seen pictures of members showing the hack jobs done on the resistor changes .. the Idiots did that damage not to my liking.

Just got my odometer kit in the mail this week. He is an online-only order business these days, but he still has some of the goodies. We used to stop at his store on the way down to Daytona and I always brought home something that I had no intention of buying. Once it was the Stillen front bumper cover. Now that was fun to tote back home.
