My cluster language keeps changing randomly & the trip meter keeps resetting all by itself.

Currently it displays in Spanish, sometimes French etc.

I guess this means I need to do the re-solder job on the board????

Sounds like - I recommend making sure you have a fine tip iron. I tried it with your simple cheap pencil type and found it to be too clumsy and had to get a finer tip to make things work better. I found a really good youtube video that showed what all you should re-solder when you are fully refurbishing, and I think he mentioned the language thing specifically in the video. I only did the pieces that I needed to when I was working on mine, which may come back to haunt me at some point.
