So yeah... The display is acting superweird. Sometimes its totally black when I get in and start the car and sometimes its flashing/turning on-off/showing weird artefacts. Car works perfectly besides that, lol.

Anyone that has an idea of whats going on?



(the musick in the video has nothing to do with the blinking, lol)

Check your ground connections and battery. There is a body ground under the battery tray that gets corroded, and the braided ground strap on the transmission can rust and go bad too.
Something similar happened to me, and cleaning the grounds helped for a short time, but I ended up needing a new ECU. =way too expensive.

The actual ECU with installation was $1,150 but they had me replace the negative battery cable/ground, and there were diagnostic charges, so in the end it was closer to $1,500.

This is the thread I started when the problems began.
