My odometer has started to blink and read out garbage numbers today, what would cause this, a lose connection?? when i started the car later it was ok and read the mileage fine, what could be wrong to cause it to show jumbled up numbers on and off? 2001 GAGT

Umm, that could very possibly be a bad situation. If that odometer ends up thinking that its being tampered with when this is going on sometime, then the thing could end up displaying an odometer violation code (such as "8888888")or something. I would bring this to the dealer as soon as possible and get that fixed.

I've seen a mechanical odometer shoot out white stripes between the numbers on a car before and he had to go and say it was an odometer discrepency on the title when it was sold. I know that they put good tamper prevention devices in, and I hope that this erratic behavior doesnt trigger something, so i'd bring it in before it does.

My 2 cents!!
