E36 M3 "ppppppp" odometer reading

I'm looking into a car that has had this problem. The odometer apparently had a reading error and said "pppppppp" where the milage should have been. Does anyone know about this? Should I stay away from getting this car?

check the fuses and if they are ok, you can try having the cluster reset. if all else fails, you will probably need a new cluster.

He said he got a new cluster. But is there any way of knowing how many miles are really on the car now? and is the "pppp" simply an electrical problem or is it something more serious?

This is something serious. I'd say a replacement cluster is a start but again you don't know the true mileage of the vehicle your considering buying. I'd say it's a bad start.
