Instrument Cluster Glitching


Nov 12, 2019
When I was out driving to pick up some food yesterday, I noticed my instrument cluster was glitching. Almost like it was constantly 'rebooting' but only the instrument cluster (main screen was fine). And it tended to happen more often when at a stop (still in drive but not moving). During this time the scroll wheels were less than responsive, often delayed.

The car still drove with no issues but once I got home, I decided to reboot the car. So far nothing but it was kind of spooky. Has anyone come across this before and is it a sign of some other issue?

Yes, something like this has also happened t me. My entire screen went completely black as I was driving--very unnerving. I was able to pull over and do a re-boot. It took a while, but that worked and the screen came back.

After the last update, I was driving and suddenly an error message came up on the dash, something like: "Air suspension cannot be raised." I pulled over and rebooted, but that didn't work. When I reached my destination, I turned off the car, went into the store, and 30 minutes later, when I started it up again, the error message had disappeared.

Should I have mobile service check it out?
