I think it's stored in more than one place, so replacing any one
module where it's stored won't alter the recorded mileage. The
replaced module gets updated by the other modules. One of the
Chrysler techs in this group can probably give you more details.
What's wrong with your instrument cluster?

I was curious because I rep some companies who make parts for
instrument clusters. Your best bet is probably going to be a junkyard
replacement for just the lens. You can probably order one as a
service part from the dealer, but I bet it's $35 or $40. A used one
should be a lot cheaper. I'm more familiar with the NS cluster, which
ran through 2000. Its lens was held on with T10 screws. I think your
2001 model is the RS minivan, which has a snap-on lens with no screws.
You might be able to replace the lens without taking the instrument
cluster all the way out.
The mileage is stored in the Body control module. it get sent to the PCM. If
you ever have to replace the BCM Chrysler will burn the mileage in the
module. The mileage in the PCM can be changed with the scan tool but will
not change the actual cluster reading.
By the way I think you may be able to get the lens separate, have you
checked the dealer?
