hey man,
right on in st. simons.
try pushing the trip all the way in while you're driving @ hwy. speed.
if that doesn' work, you may try swapping in a cluster that you know works. it's not that hard to remove. two torx screws above the steering column, the h/light knob ( which comes loose via a little tab in the knob itself ) and pull out the bezel. be firm but gentle. remove the 6-8 screws holding the instrument cluster in and unplug the two big plugs on the back. reverse for install.
you didn't say but does everything in the cluster still function properly ?

It sounds like your odometer gears have stripped in which case, you'll need to replace them. You can buy new gears from Odometer Gears | 72 Croatan Road | Newport News, VA 23606 | 757.593.3478
Installation isn't difficult. You'll need to remove the gauge cluster and get to the gears at the back. Just remove the old ones and clip the new ones into place.
Here's the procedure for removing the gauge cluster:

1. Find the slot in the headlight pull knob and push the retaining tab forward to remove the knob.
2. Tilt the steering wheel down to its lowest position.
3. Remove the two Torx screws holding the gauge bezel and carefully ease the bezel out from the dash.
4. Remove the four Torx screws holding the gauge cluster to the dash and pull out the cluster.
5. Disconnect the two wiring harnesses from the back of the cluster and it'll be free.

Also, gently take the grease off of the new gear with a Q- tip if there is any. That grease just wears out the gears faster. Same thing applies if you using the old worm gear.
