'88 Z-24 digital dash

Thinking about buying an '88 Cavalier Z-24 with that digital dashboard, which the owner says doesn't work properly, but it's possible just the speed doesn't register while the other gauges do.
Does this necessitate replacing that entire gauge cluster, or is there a module which controls it and prone to burning out, etc.? If so, what is the cost of buying those parts? TIA

Sorry James - can't be answered by your description. It could be a lot of things. No one can really suggest what may be wrong or any other such advice when you're not even sure yourself what the failure symptoms are.

A friend of mine had an '89 Cavalier with the digital dash. It was a huge pain in the ass. The speedometer worked fine, a few of the other gauges worked fine, but the tach didn't work at all. You should find out exactly what part of the dash isn't working. You can always try a junk yard dash, if you can find one, but keep in mind they were not very common.
