(Thread Starter)
When I purchased the Car, the display was skipping and it was very hard to read, if i take it to the dealership it will cost me an arm and a leg to replace the whole console, does anyone have a way to fic this without much money? Thanks ManUtd29!

which display? If it's the one under your speedo then the only fix is the dealer, same thing happened to me when I had my 540, dealer quoted me $450.

Yeah, it is the one where the radio stations is displayed and the one on the dashboard that displays the actions of the car such as "parking brake is on"

that's the OBC or on board computer. There may just be a burnt out light or a short in the wire. Are you good with electronics, if so you might want to get back in there and see if you can fix it without going to the dealer.
